The reality is this. *** people are ***. Straight people are straight. *** people need to stop asking those who chose not to understand, accept or agree with their lifestyles. Define yourself, validate yourself. Live your life to the fullest. Why are you even attempting to defend yourself. You are who you are. They are who they are. You're not going to change or stop being who you are, neither are they. SO WHAT! Just because a person doesn't accept you, like you, agree with. The reality is yes, many men are ***. Many of these men are successful, have degrees, a larger bank account, purchased home etc. Not sleeping with man to man, living pay check to pay check with 3 and 4 babydaddys. Living in the projects. So why apologize for being who you are. Im not necessarily saying flaunt your lifestyle in people's faces. But, why are you offended when people don't like you. GET OVER IT! STOP feeding so much into those who don't. Embrace those who do. People are not going to like you because you are too light, too dark, too ***, too fat, too cute, too ugly. GET OVER FOR IT. This is the world we live in, people will always not like something or someone. People don't like blacks, whites, Jews, Christians, Atheists, People don't like Jesus, Mohammad, Allah. The list goes on! Live your life, be safe, be happy. Don't waste your time, energy, thought, space or precious speech on those who seem to be overly consumed and obsessed with your lives. LIve your FABULOUS LIVES. Get your education, Live in your Houses, Drive your nice cars, travel extensively. Smile, wear your fine clothes, and LOVE YOUR LIFE. NOt to say that other people who are straight don't possess some of those things. BUt, why be consumed with the opinions of others. This is reality. This is life. Everyone is not going to agree or accept you. Many of those who don't accept you, are not accepted either and they arent ***. Stop putting so much emphasis on the opinions of others. IF THEY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH YOU, its is THEIR PROBLEM Not YOURS! Stop looking for approval, define yourself and put on your own labels. Being *** is just a part of who you are, not the very definition of you!
