Someone on Facebook took offence at my jocular comment

If I had realised at the time that Lebanese was actually a nationality, not a lifestyle choice, I would have asked her to marry me.  Damn.

I deleted their comment, not because I disagreed with it, but because it was unnecessarily abusive.

The essence of the comment was that being gay is not a choice.  I totally agree.  However, in pursuing humour one needs a little artistic licence.

On reflection however, I decided that whatever one’s sexual orientation, there is still scope for choice.  Everyone, whether straight, gay, bi or pervert, has a choice between expressing their sexuality, or celibacy.   In the case of paedophiles, ovophiles, bovophiles, canophiles, rapists and their ilk, the choice should definitely be celibacy.  For all others it is simply a matter of whatever feels right.

And that is all I have to say about that.


About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
