As the joke apparently didn’t make sense to many, I will clarify it bluntly: I won’t date a guy because I don’t like guys, period. That is not the same as thinking it should be illegal. You’d be surprised at the number of things I don’t think should be illegal. If you do not hurt someone, I usually don’t care.

However, that does not mean I think your life choices are necessarily a good idea, and I’ve said so to many people over the years. I am trying to make sure I never compare a girl I can love forever to anyone else as a courtesy to her. I have friends who change partners like I change batteries in a flashlight. They are not me, I am not them, and confusing your own view of the world for ‘how it actually is’ is just about as sane, to me, as thinking that because you believe wholeheartedly that the sky is blue, doesn’t mean that someone who can’t see that color believes it is grey from a lifetime’s experience, or someone who sees other colors believes it is purple shifting with multiple bands depending on which direction you're facing. You don’t know why the person says what they say and unless you find out what’s going on, you will always believe they are crazy. And even if you do understand, you still may not agree.

I’m not even sure that makes sense, but I tried.

Welcome to my world.
