My dad was saying how Star Trek wasn't about social issues, specifically gay rights, and I'm sitting there like; you remember that episode of Next Generation where the species weren't meant to have a gender or fall in love and RIKER FUCKIN FELL IN LOVE AND THEY HAD A RELATIONSHIP AND THE ALIEN IDENTIFIED AS FEMALE! TELL ME THATS NOT ABOUT GAY RIGHTS
My Male BFF & I have had this conversation so many times - all the ways that Men are pressured to Conform. It does them as much harm - AND it rebounds on how they perceive & treat Women: a nasty vicious circle we're All trapped in until we start to THINK DIFFERENTLY & ACT ACCORDINGLY. In essence it is very simple: start treating other people, everyone you encounter, with The Same Respect that you want for yourself. 'Do As You Would Be Done By'. It would Change The World !
MY mistake, WRK...my mistake that I, too, bought into anything you blamed me for. Lucky me, it's all behind me after my visit to CA July 2016. Free ~ (and hate is too strong a word but the sentiment is pretty cool 1 Aug.)
