Such a lucky girl am I

August 13, 2017

Having been born a quasi - heterosexual white, anglo-saxon quasi Christian from Canada,  one can say I was born very privileged indeed. My parents, although not rich, where not poor.  I came from a good neighborhood (not the best or worst), went to a good school (not the best or the worst) -- so yes,  I was privileged.

 

So no, I don't know fully how hard it is for other people who haven't had the acceptance as a human being that I have been privileged with.   Yes, my "quasi -faith" is spirituality --  slightly  different -- but not so different as to have had to endure hatred.  I have a brother who is gay,  a fact we all knew from the time he was, well was.  early seventies,  yet I personally never felt the shit he felt...of course I different, never quite understood why people couldn't love my most amazing brother,  genuis, amazing singer, comedian the way we all saw him???  But I was just a kid. How could I know the hatred and the fear that he felt everyday???  I was sheltered, I was niave,  I believed in love of all (thanks to the "quasi-faith of spiritualism).

 

So,  as I have grown older it is equally hard for me to identify with the hatred that many of my friends have had to feel,   so please forgive this of me.  My language sometimes is wrong,  I don't always know the correct vocabulary,  but I am so willing to learn.  This is me just saying,  I wish that everyone could see my amazing friends as unique human beings.  With a  soul,  with a heart -- with the abundance of love that some others would be so lucky to be able to have.
