And in the South, I hear that saying, "Well bless your heart" is a veiled insult.
Dear Sentient, I think it was George Bernard Shaw who said that the most insulting (or worst) thing you can say about a person is that they "mean well."
Sure, sk8eycat. Actually, if you posted it as a topic on the main forum page for A/N, I'm sure many, many people would sign it. Thanks again.
Should I post the SAME thing on Hang With Friends?
Signed, Sk8eycat. Thanks for the link. And thanks for your support. You're the best!
Years ago I had two neutered male cats, and one used to mount the other every once in a while...just to demonstrate that he was the boss cat in this house. Both were indoor cats since kittenhood, so they never saw any animals mating.
BUT, I have read in several different books that even in the wild, there are many animals and birds that mate for life, and among these animals there are same-sex pairs. Sometimes they even "adopt" and raise orphaned younglings. They are accepted in the flock or pack as just another couple.
So every time I hear or read some iggerant bigot use the word "unnatural" I try my best to educate the idiot. I don't have much success, as far as I know, but I keep hoping.
Love is love. Period.
For myself, I think I'm a neuter...I never found anybody that I trusted enough to commit my life, privacy, and emotions to...so after sleeping around a lot till I was about 35, I just gave up, and decided to stay single. It gets lonely sometimes, but I have friends, and one of my favorite lines from the "Tales of the City" books is "It's better to have five good friends than one indifferent lover." Or something like that.
Sk8tycat, your comment about killing pets who mount other pets of the same sex reminded me of something else even stranger. I'm listening to Mary Roach's book "Bonk" which is about the biology and sociology of sex. It's amazing to learn what goes on studying animal sexuality. Given that the researches manipulate animal genitalia, it sounds a lot like bestiality.
Then there's artificial semination. Holy Jesus! To obtain semen, for some animals the technician masturbates the male animal. Sometimes they do it with their hand, for other animals they have a device. Then, for some species the female has to be stimulated - not just inseminated - in order for the semen to be taken into the uterus.
So, most of our animal agriculture seems to be an effect of bestiality. Who knew?
That probably isn't true in muslim countries. They are not as technologically advanced. How nice for them.
Ruth thanks for the pic. That's really funny!
