I never really understood

....the whole discriminating someone for who they love/like.

Just very alien to me.

In my introduction, I wrote that I have mother-in-laws. Yes, pleural. The paternal - Sammy Jo - married her partner, hence the lesbian relationship. Also, our eldest daughter is bisexual.

I've never seen it as an issue. Fact is, I get to kiss both mother-in-laws on the cheek as a greeting! That's a win, win if ever I saw one!

Is my life richer for the experience of having LGBTQ+ in my family? No. Life is life. They're in our lives, they're cool people. End of story. I try not to delve to deep. I'm an easy going individual.

And, of course, life is really too short to get annoyed at what someone else does with their life, especially if it doesn't affect them.

Some people are just very silly, I guess.

Some people are just bigots. You are not. It’s difficult to understand bigotry when you don’t have it. Because it doesn’t make sense.

@DarkHeaven Very true. There's an awful lot of things that I really don't understand in the world, and that is my conclusion too.

Thank you.

Have seen & been on the receiving end of discrimination, can't understand it to be honest. Love is love, life is way too short. Smile & be HAPPY.
@cd4259 I've been on the receiving end of discrimination, too.
It sucks.

There's no shame in having mothers-in-law.

It's just a different way of living that most people don't understand, that's all.

Yes! Love is love. People can marry whoever they’d like (as long as they are consenting adults). As long as no one is being hurt who cares.

While neither parent could understand the LGBTQ community, I know they didn't understand me being polygamous either.

Didn't stop me from taking care of both before they pass on.
My parents were always accepting of LGBT friends and family members and made them feel welcome in our home. They raised us that way, too.

@Lilnonames Ah....not sure of the exchange rate! Lol!

I'm pretty reasonable...
