argh, mini-diablo, diablo

Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.

I have kept pretty quiet on this journal about what I think of the US politics scene right now because I have people who read me (and who I consider friends) on both sides of the fence. Apart from a meme or two, maybe. Until now.

SEXUALITY IS NOT A CHOICE OR A LIFESTYLE!
Linked writer says it better than I ever could.
Thanks to rm for the link.

Cue the flame wars, but I am entitled to my opinion as much as you are. This is not opinion, though. It is a biological fact. We cannot CHOOSE our sexuality. We can suppress it and become mentally ill or we can live as $deity-or-nature intended - as our true sexuality.

Yes, I am heterosexual. I know that many of you are not. I feel so worried for those of you in the US that are not vanilla-hetero in case the GOP ticket wins and hope, for your sake, that Obama / the Democrats win(s).

There you go - I have said my piece.

Dear You-Know-Who-You-Are

Thank you for your opinions. I am sure that these are much more accurate and valid than the knowledge of my GP, therapists and Neurologists. No, I am sure you are right that these mental/emotional symptoms are under my control and that I should not blame the Multiple Sclerosis for them, despite the experience and knowledge of the aforementioned medical experts. As many people have said in the past (and so must, of course, be right due to their sheer body of numbers), I merely need to pull myself together and learn to control my emotions. The fact that the MS is gradually eating away at many parts of my brain and spinal cord (especially in the areas of memory and emotional control/lability, in my case) can be ignored - it is merely the case that I need to be better at Mind-Over-Matter than I currently am. Now, why didn't I or my doctors think of that in the last ten years since I was diagnosed?

No love, Me.
