love is cool.

the argument that rages still over same sex marriage is beyond me. i don't understand what all the fuss is about. i really don't. lgbt lovers presumably love their lovers. isn't that what counts? am i missing something?

on facebook, we are regularly treated to videos of cats loving birds, birds loving monkeys, monkeys loving tigers. we are treated to videos of dogs loving rabbits, fawns, horses, pigs and even elephants. i saw a video of a dog riding on a dolphin. we enjoy seeing those unusual shows of affection. we like all those even though their love is not 'traditional.' in fact, we like those specifically because their love is not 'traditional.' and lgbt folks are all human folks. love is love. love is cool. it's pretty simple.

i read about a case in india some years back of a girl wanting to marry her dog, and it was eventually allowed! i hope they've been happy together. otherwise, that would put a whole new meaning to ending up in the dog-house. in this case i must admit that marrying a dog seems a weeee bit weird, but it's all good, especially if you think about it from the dog's point of view. my point of view is that the question of gay marriage is a no-brainer.

i'll tell you what relationship really was weird: my mom and dad's relationship was weird. they argued every day for 63 years. nobody ever said that relationship was unnatural. no. that seemed to be perfectly acceptable. about a year after my mom's passing, i asked my 91-year-old dad if he missed her. he thought for just a moment before smiling at me: "no," he said. "i have a young malaysian girl taking care of me now."
