I just realized that

I just realized that it has been over two years that I have had any actual contact with my flesh and blood family.
And I realized why missing people stories were triggering depressive episodes. Here are people missing for a couple of weeks and their families are calling out national manhunts. To my family, I have been missing for two years.

To my husband on our second anniversary

Two years have passed since that day on the bank of the Mississippi River. Two years since we exchanged vows in Keokuk, Iowa. Two years have passed since we said, “I do” and exchanged rings. Rings not with our wedding date, but with the official date of the start of our coupledom, V X MMV. Two years of travels. Two years of romance. Two years of daily humdrum everyday living. Two years worth of adventure. Two years full of tragedy and triumph. Two years worth of life.
Life lived better because you are my husband. You and I together, holding on to the life bar. Fulfilling our Foray.

When people disapprove of the Homosexual Lifestyle: A Rant.

Over on my tumblr, I saw someone talking about how they were ok with gays and were friends with some gays but disapproved of the gay lifestyle. 

other than removing the links and changing the names here is my rant pretty much as it is on Tumblr. 

Rant

I was doing some tumbling and saw where (TumblrH.) had answered an anon who disagreed with the “gay lifestyle” . I sent TumblrH. an ask that gave a peek into my husband’s an my gay lifestyle.
I decided to write a longer post here because the ask system doesn’t have enough characters to go into this complex subject.
It’s been my experience that when someone says they disapprove of the “gay lifestyle” for what ever reason, what they really mean is they disapprove of “gay sex.”
And when they disapprove of “gay sex” on religious grounds, that gets us to Leviticus. If you disapprove of gay sex based Judeo-Christian religious dogma, then there is a whole list of things that you have to disapprove of as well. Unless you are picking and choosing what parts of the dogma you want to believe in. 
If you disapprove of gay sex because “its gross.” then grow up. There’s a lot about two human bodies engaged in coitus that is gross, no matter what your sexuality may be.
If you disapprove of the “gay lifestyle” because you don’t understand what the “gay lifestyle” is, I suggest you educate yourself.
