i’d like to think i started at least a little controversy…

I recently signed up to receive emails and blogging tips from BlogHer, the place where the thing we call NaBloPoMo originated. They’ve got a prompt for every weekday of the month, most of which I’ve glanced at, but not taken too much time to actually sit and write about.

The prompt for yesterday (which I’m just seeing today) is as follows:

“What is the most controversial thing you’ve ever written on your blog? What compelled you to write it?”

I think I can honestly say that there are two big things this year, on this blog, that I wrote about that would probably ruffle some feathers… And you can read about them. Last week, I blogged about my newfound appreciation for sex outside of relationships (or what the kids are calling “casual sex”). Several months ago, I blogged about an email exchange I had with a woman about homosexuality; and I came out (pun intended) in support of gay parents, gay marriage, and all things merrily gay.

This whole NaBloPoMo has really gotten me on a roll of speaking out about how I truly feel about things. And my feelings haven’t changed when it comes to same-sex “issues.” I also don’t completely understand why so many people care to fight against it.

I’d like to come back to this topic again, perhaps tomorrow or Thursday. But for today, I would just like to ponder on a few questions.

1. If you’re straight, when did you “choose” to be straight? If your answer is that you “just knew,” well, isn’t it plausible, then, for people who identify as “gay” might also have come to the same conclusion?

2. If two men or two women choose to get married to one another, how does their decision to do something that makes them happy adversely affect you or your family?

3. Don’t all children deserve to be loved, cared for, and supported? If you answered “yes,” then please explain to me why it matters who the caregivers are.

Just some food for thought, Reader. Let’s revisit this topic later this week. In the meantime, please go back and take a look at my post on how awesome gay families are. I’ve even left you an extra link down here so you don’t have to scroll. :)

Happy Tuesday, Reader. See you tomorrow.
