I try to be respectful of people’s differing views, but I really just can’t stand people who are trying to take away other people’s rights to be who they are and live the way they want to live. There are people out here celebrating the overturn of Roe v Wade and the loss of our rights to our own bodies. Forcing someone to give birth is awful in so many ways. And some of these same people believe that gay couples should not be allowed to adopt any of the babies that will be put in the system due to our reproductive rights they were so happy to see being taken away.
There are some ultra-conservatives who believe that everyone ought to live their lives extremely traditionally and will pester others , and ask them nagging questions about when they plan to get married and have kids, which is rude enough as is. But then the second they find out that they are in a same-sex relationship, they will do a full 180 and hold the view that they should not ever be allowed to get married to their partner of have kids with them.
I’m just sooooo over people and their contradictions/double standards who try to dictate how others’ live their lives.
