From time to time I will post something here that may offend some of you. For that I deeply apologize, as this is not my intention. I’m simply speaking my mind. Okay, the more I say ‘speaking my mind’, the more stupid it sounds. So many words are like that. Repeat them back-to-back a few times and they don’t sound like a real word at all.
Sorry, got off track for a moment.
I read an article the other night about Crystal Bowersox (American Idol runner-up, season 9). I don’t usually read silly articles such as this, but for some reason it caught my eye. I must have been bored.
Crystal has cut off her seven year old dreadlocks, is now sporting a new ‘do’, has released a holiday song titled ‘Coming Out for Christmas’ (Huh??) and oh by the way, clarified to the world on Twitter that she is bisexual. The song is ridiculous and hardly one the family will gather ’round the piano to sing on Christmas Eve. But, feeling the need to inform the world of her sexual orientation? Really?
Now, please don’t think me prejudiced. Truly I don’t care what your preferences are. It makes no difference to me. I was not put on this earth to judge others. Not my job. What does matter to me is what kind of Human Being you are. Whether or not you are kind, thoughtful, caring, giving, respectful, and loving towards others.
I don’t understand the need to inform others, “In case you were wondering, my sexual preference is…”
To me, that topic of conversation is private. Maybe I’m just old fashioned.
