Not all of us are afraid of everything out here. If you want tolerance of others..you need to learn to give tolerance. A difficult thing at 18 years old with little anchorage..even knowledge of ones own family history...much less any other history. That will all come with time and learning/knowledge and experience.
Be patient. This world is not the product advertised.
I agree with Greeny2 on the gay issues. I think Greeny2 is spot on the mark here.
Sorry but the gay rights activists are so full of hate and contempt for any Christian thinking, they are among to most intolerant and hateful people you will find. Even you would never expect your Grandmother to abandon her Morman beliefs, because the laws have changed, and the Constitution may be telling you one thing, but her Bible tells her something else.
I will give you a hint here for your future...no cover charge.
People who can think for themselves do not ever go about defining themselves by their sexuality or sexual orientation. It is no ones business. You do not use this sexuality or sexual orientation like a club to force acceptance of others towards you. This applies hetero as well as homosexual. Otherwise it is just mental and spiritual rape.
I do not have to accept anyone period on the basis of their sexuality or sexual orientation. Gay or straight.
I just happen to think and believe that people are so much more than this sexuality and sexual orientation..hetero and homo both.
What a stupid ignorant standard by which to expect people to accept us....
NO cover charge for this...sk8chic100.
I am not at all saying that people do not have sexuality or sexual orientation ..but that people are so much more than this narrow limit of sexuality and sexual orientation.
Don't let anyone lie to you or attempt to fool you into their narrow thinking about this simplicity.
People should keep their sex lives private..not use them to bludgeon others over the head unto acceptance.
I prefer going about at night time. I am more comfortable at night. Worked night shifts for many many many years now. Not much of a day walker. I am also ..mostly alone and am accustomed to figuring things out for myself..mostlly alone...not really that social..or what some would call a social butterfly.
I know people you are attempting to describe...sensitive to much about them. Most of them have been women..or very feminine in their sensitivities.
I am a Christian but like En Lugal ..have found most church organizations to be unacceptable to me...and prefer reading and learning on my own. I am not particularly enamoured by what most of todays churches are teaching their flocks. I believe they leave much out and their sheep go about unarmed and unawares of much in this world. They are not teaching the Whole Council of God and are leaving much out. I think this is not accidental of them..but deliberately fostered ignorance...even about much of Christianity.
There are alot of very ignorant Christians out here..who do not even know much Bible. Astonishing but true.
Most people want to be left alone. I am ok with this and for the most part want to be left alone.
You are 18 years olde sk8chic100. Nothing wrong with that ..most certainly. You have a long trail ahead of you with people and ideas which will try to pull you to the left or the right ...or backwards...straight ahead. Learn along the way...think carefully ...and learn ....knowledge.
Knowledge serves as a tool by which to make decisions of which way to go or travel. A grist by which to feed your thinking apparatus.
Knowledge will also teach you patience...and patience..longsuffering will be a good and useful tool unto itself and to serve you down the road or trail on which you will be traveling. Think it through...verses intolerance.
Knowledge or facts are not a substitute for thinking or knowing how to put the facts together in a form useful for you or your survival. Nor is a high emotional level..next to good thinking or reasoning.
Emotions and good thinking are often at cross purposes with each other...if you allow them to be so.
Good luck to you where ever you go.
