Woah! This week’s Channeling Erik post is up early!
I’m enjoying that my post is right beside one titled “Gays in Heaven”
I won’t get into the visuals that phrase inspires!
Gosh, I have to say I’m not a fan of the term “gays”, nor any term that takes a descriptor and makes it a category: disabled, suicides, addicts etc. it’s taking one aspect of a person and is defining their whole person by that one trait.
My sister is not a disabled or handicapped. She is a person with a disability. My friend is not an addict nor a druggie, he is a person with an addiction. I am not a gay, I am a woman who lives with another woman.
You see what I’m sayin’? One thing, even if its a big thing – it doesn’t define all you are. It sure doesn’t separate you from anyone else after you die, either.
This is why some folks say, “labels ate for soup cans.”
