Happy "All Marriage is Equal" Day, aside from animals and objects of course.
Today, the GLBT community can rejoice across the Nation as America made it legal for all types of love to tie the knot. As a lot of states had already made this move, this day will shine in history as the day our Nation declared it legal in all 50.
As with any big movement, it's caused controversy throughout the country. While many celebrate the equality, others express their hate for it and exclaim how wrong it is. Social media is booming with people's opinions and why each other wrong.
I'm here to express my opinion, not to call out on others saying their opinion is wrong. I may strongly disagree with someone, but all I can do is possibly sway your opinion through my article.
I grew up with a close family; mother, father, brother and sister. As a child, I had to attend church, it was how I raised. Bible verses were memorized, right from wrong in the religious sense was taught. At a young age, I honestly didn't know much of homosexuality or related topics.
As I grew older, I protested against standardized religion and rarely ever attended church. Why? There are so many ways to interpret or misinterpret the bible and everything within it. I chose to determine for myself what to and not to believe.
My parents are religious and also to an extent not as, let's say "open minded" as my generation is. The older generations in majority seem to not agree with gay marriage or even for people to be gay. Some just feel that "if they don't see it, they don't care."
There are many in my generation as well who seem to be strongly against it, most of which seem to come from religious beliefs. I've seen things like "sin is now legal, I've lost faith in America, blah blah tragedy." Question, are you serious?
It's fine if you want to be against it, but why does it being legal pertain to you? This does not effect you in any way. If this is a huge sin, we who support it will suffer, correct? The entire world will not be punished, America is really no worse, just happier.
When I saw, sin being legal, I was astonished. Isn't sex before marriage a sin? Yet, that is indeed legal, or at least not illegal. Drinking and drugs, are they not sins? The 10 commandments, do people not break those all the time with no punishment?
In my opinion, if you dislike that we as a Nation allow GLBT, you should disregard it as it does not effect you, or move if you are that hurt by it.
I for one am happy that America has passed this and all couples can be married everywhere. I'm a sucker for love and don't discriminate against any kind. As I am straight myself, I still want everyone to be happy with whomever makes them happy.
I hope in some way I spoke to those disagreeing to see from a different point of you. Everyone has their opinion, and I respect that. #Lovewins has been trending today. I would want to see that come true thoughout the nation for one another.
In closing, let us celebrate the equality we have gained today. Rejoice for the progress America has made as a country. Be happy for those who were greatly effected by the news today.
Celebrate love, for it is an amazing feeling.
I'm gonna start this off with I had already written out a few paragraphs, and my app quit on me, losing all my work. Bad luck? I think so.
Let's try again. I believe in a lot of things until proven wrong; ghosts, a higher power, unicorns. Karma, not that I have proven it right, but I've seen to be right. I don't wanna hear how it's just coincidence, bill shit.
What goes around comes around. You've heard it your whole life. You do wrong, wrong comes unto you. The universe doesn't let bad deeds just go. You better believe you are paying for your wrong doings.
Karma is a punishment and reward all in one. It's the silent revenge, sweet revenge. You can just sit back and watch as karma does her thing and you're rewarded. What an awesome thing to believe in.
Bad luck, the yes it's real/no it's not famous topic. It proves to be real time and time again for me. Today I have dropped a bowl of milk and cereal on the floor, worked on the most beautiful day, and lost my blog post. Could just be Monday though.
Bad luck strikes whenever it wants and to good people. You could have done no wrong and boom, your life sucks for the week. It's there. Bad luck lurks around waiting to strike.
Theory, karma is God and bad luck is satan. Karma looking out for everyone, being like everyone gets what they deserve, good or bad. Bad luck being a dick like (evil laugh) shitty day for you, shitty day for you too!
Have I swayed your opinion yet? Karma's looking pretty real isn't she? Bad luck, he's looking existent too.
Think before you try and mess up someone's day next time. Also, remember you could just wake up to a shitty day.
Karma. Bad luck. Life.
We can try all we want, try and avoid it, but it's somehow unavoidable. Without even knowing it, girls, we pick men similar to our father.
Being a daddy's girl, that should be perfect right? I'm his little girl, so my ideal man will think the same. He'll protect me, attack anyone who messes with me, and give me money whenever I give him that look.
As there are good qualities my dad has that I always hoped my man would, there are always a few habits or qualities I could live without.
No one is perfect, but you've lived with these habits from your father all your life. Now you have to marry the same guy?
Whether we like it or not, these are the similarities between the two men we love most.
Their sense of humor.
My daddy has always been funny, in this strange funny type of way. I find my sense of humor similar to his, but find my man's to be practically the same. At least I can always have a laugh right?
Their protective instinct.
My men are so protective of me. Neither of them can stand to see me cry and I love it. They will do anything they can to put me first and fight for me.
My dad was always my biggest fan and knew when I needed him to be there for me. My man knows when I need him, and does everything he can to be there.
Their impulse to make you happy.
Both of them hate to see me unhappy. My dad will do the silliest things, like show off stupid dance moves, sing to me, or even send a cute text because he knows I want that. My man is the same way. He will do whatever it takes to make me happy if I'm not, or even when I am.
I found that my dad and my man have some similar interests. They both love working outside and playing with guns. It's crazy how similar our men can be.
In ways, I can see where my men are alike in this category. They make such similar mistakes as the other it's unbelievable. Even so, I love them both regardless.
So don't freak if you're dating a guy that is like your father. If you grew up loving your daddy like I have, you'll know you made the right decision.
One of our biggest mistakes as humans is not knowing when to shut up. We speak before we think all the time and immediately want to rewind and take it back. There are so many times I didn't take a second to think what I was going to say and caused the next war of my life.
How many battles do we face that could be avoided? How many times have you ruined a perfectly good time by saying something that maybe didn't need to be said? This is why we need to think of the reaction we are going to get out of what we say.
War is for the serious problems at hand. It should not occur as often as it does in our lives and we need to take action! We need to limit our war count, our lives shouldn't have more wars than the world goes through. As much as we dislike war in the world, we need to dislike it in our lives as well.
To limit our battles in life, we should take actions like these to make love more often than war!
Is my thinking logical?
Am I thinking clearly whatsoever? Maybe bringing up the past from 5 years ago isn't the best thing to be upset about. If it's something about irrelevant events that happened in the past, don't worry about it. If it sounds a little crazy in your head, don't blurt it out. If there's a little chance that it's crazy, sit on that idea for a while until it turns out it is crazy and don't say it.
Is this issue worth a battle?
Some things should definitely be talked over, just watch how you say it. If the issue should be discussed, but not fought about, be calm. Sit down with someone and ask to have a conversation, not shout and start shooting right off the start. Think about the issue and determine how big the issue is, it may not actually be worth it.
Is the battle old?
There is no need to have the battle of hell part 1, 2, 3 and so on. If the battle is reoccurring, that may need to be dealt with further and decided on if it's worth reentering the battle.
Will I want to take it back?
We all know once something is said, there is no undo button. We need to think about if there's any chance we will regret what we just started. This way is a great away to avoid a fight.
Can't we just make love?
Love is such a better word than war. We should choose love as often as we can! No one wants to fight, it's awful. Striving to ignore the little battles and love instead is what we need in this world.
MAKE LOVE, NOT WAR!
Everyone's always complaining how much small tits suck. Then you got people over there saying they hate their huge tits. Well hey! Having decent sized, C-D cups, isn't just a walk in the park!
You would think, that's pretty average, it must be a breeze with those boobs. Well, no, it's not always.
Like small and big, we too have our problems that we deal with on the daily. There are many times were id rather be flat chested, some days I wish for a bigger pair.
No matter what our size, we always want something different. Just so you understand, these are the shitty parts of having average size boobs.
1. They're considered too small to fall out.
Girls with big tits have an excuse when they have a tit slip. Whoops it fell out of my swim suit, that's ok, we understand. If average boobs are falling out, that girls a slutttt. No. Clothes suck for everyone.
2. Tight shirts can fit weirdly.
Flat chests got it easy on that one. Tighter shirts can sometimes fit weird in different places, like the chest. You never know what size to get in those.
3. Anything fits weirdly.
Like what size even am I? A small? A large? They never configure tit sizes into shirts.
4. They're like big boobs, they get in the way.
They may not be as big, but laying on them can suck. Sometimes you look down and your feet are barely there, just when you stand a certain way.
5. Bra less, not always an option.
I'd love to not wear a bra whenever I don't want to, but sometimes I have to. Like any sort of expertise requires a bra. Most shirts do, why are small boobs sounding splendid?
6. Boob sweat is right there.
You can't hide that sweat mark under your hot and bothered breasts. They're big enough to perspire but small enough to not cover it up!
Well either way, boobs can be a pain.
