...as the circumstance arises

Buddhism is different from other religions in that there is no “God figure” or “Creator”. If you ask any Buddhist how the world began, he’d simply say “I don’t know”. And you just gotta love that kind of honesty!

Them:
I don't think kids should be exposed to gay relationships.
You:
Why not?
Them:
It's introducing children to sexuality! They're too young for that!
You:
So when a prince and princess kiss in a Disney movie, are they introduced to sexuality? When the prince and the princess get married and have a child, is that introducing your child to sexuality?
Them:
NO! But if they see a man and a man, or a woman and a woman together... they're going to start asking questions! Like how a man and a man can... you know, do anything together.
You:
You think the only thing people think when they see a gay couple is "I wonder how they have sex"? Furthermore, you think a CHILD is going to even know what that means? When the prince and the princess kiss, does your 4 year old daughter ask, "mommy, how do people have intercourse"? No. She just sees two people in love. If you remember when you were a kid, you probably didn't think about sex every time you saw two people happy together.
Them:
But it'll bring up all kinds of questions, it'll confuse my child!
You:
Then be a fucking parent and explain it to your child. The only question that might be brought up is "mom, why don't you want gay people to be happy?". And when you don't have a good answer for that question, you can look your child in the eye and say "It's because I'm a bigot".

yeah, so my lab science class, Culinary Chemistry, uses Alton Brown’s ‘Good Eats’ as one of our textbooks. This should be a fun class.

There is a space between needing to make a decision and actually making it, and that space is almost always filled with fear. Vow to only make love-based decisions from this day forward, and you’ll discover that it’s never too late to have a happy life.
