Welcome to my first blog hop on my new blog. It's very special to me that it's to bring awareness to homophobia. My very best friend, Ethan Stone, who I love dearly is gay man that I've had to watch struggle with so many factors in his life. Being a straight-married woman I don't have the trials and tribulations I have watch some of my gay friends go through. Although as a m/m writer I do face the fact that I have to write under a pseudonym given my job and the small southern town I live in. Some of the ladies at work know what I write but they haven't picked it up to read yet and I haven't pushed. My husband knows I wrote the book but he doesn't really read books nor has the time, it doesn't really bother me, it's my fantasy world. He is excited for me though and supports me 100% which I love him for. My mom I've told, my dad and siblings I have not. Believe me don't want to stir the bee's in that pot! But really it's all cool my internet family is so wonderful and so supportive. Then of course my BFF, Ethan also hides behind a pseudonym because of his small community and day job. If it wasn't for that pesky day job I think Ethan would be parading up and down the street looking for hook ups. Oops did I just say that out loud!Good thing thousands of miles are between us!
Love you Ethan :)
Alright back to the point...
Why the hate?? Why hate those who chose to love?? This is what I do not understand. I live in the Southern U.S., yes straight up-Bible Belt- U.S.A. and I hear all the time but the bible says... but the bible also says do not judge!! I can not and will NOT judge. In my heart, I can NOT hate a person for loving another. I do NOT see love as being wrong!! I see Hate as being wrong. Okay maybe I better slow down before I blow that little vein in my head that's about to burst. Let's just say I would hope that my God wouldn't want us to Hate anyone.
