Real, Oh my, where can I go with this word today?
On a day when I am tired due to lack of sleep and a very busy day before.
This morning I linked to an article on facebook about how children suffer if they aren't in two parent, one male, one female households.
A person I know disagreed with me for posting it. Equating all relationships as being equal.
The article wasn't about that.
It wasn't about lack of love between two people (regardless of who they are). It wasn't about the love of parents for their children regardless of the relationships they may or may not be in.
It was about the lack that children feel when they aren't in the homes of their birth parents... of parents who love them dearly and raise them well. Wasn't talking about abusive relationships. Just about how children suffer ALL THINGS BEING EQUAL if they aren't raised in a household with one man and one woman. Different genders bring different things to relationships. THAT is what the article was about.
Yet that point was missed in the holding to the agenda that ALL relationships are considered equal and to think a person is lacking something just because it's either same gender or a missing person is ridiculous.
It isn't ridiculous.
It's part of the whole being real thing.
Of recognizing even in this politically correct, label driven, equality demanded world that we live in, that people miss out if they see even in equality there are differences to be celebrated in the different genders and an awareness needed that those differences are to be valued and not dismissed.
THIS is one of the Real things for me this day.
What is real for you?
455 p.m. STOP.
