*bitchslaps my aunt*  
i've just had to hear the most ridiculous shit from her relayed through mom. 'i hope your happy the n***r won'.
my response was: and here i'd always thought were a good, decent, god-fearing christian.
then she says she is and that obama isn't because he's for abortion and for gays.
my response 'what's wrong with being for a woman having a safe choice in the matter or for people to have equal rights? then you must have lied to my face and you don't like me because i'm gay.
mom says: you're about as gay as the man in the moon (she thinks this because of my crushing on ben browder).
me: do you want me to lay a girl out and fuck her in front of you?
aunt: if you were gay you wouldn't need a vibrator.
(this is where my eyes bug out of my fucking *head*)
me: for one thing... all lesbians do. for another you don't *need* to have anything stuck up inside to be fucked. that's why you have the clit and why it's called the *magic button* and read a fucking book on stuff before you start spouting off on things you don't know about.
mom: i don't want to be in the middle of this anymore.
me: i'm going back to bed.

(i'd just started dozing off when mom knocked on my bedroom door and asked me if I'd watched the news and I told her I'd been up all night watching it when my aunt called.)

i decided to post this because it shows that we do have a loooong way to go and i don't want to forget. now i'm going back to bed.

You're not alone. This morning when I called Mom, the first words she said, after exchange of hellos, was, "They've elected a n------ to the White House."

It's so disappointing. I knew my relatives in Mississippi would be like this, and openly so, but the election season has ramped up Mom's racial paranoia to the extreme.

sorry about that and that you had to hear that from your mom as well.

*hugs you as well* Things are gonna change. You've made it this far. 50 years ago, this would have been unthinkable.

*warm hugs* It's not a perfect tomorrow, but at least it came. The healing can start now.

And incidentally, I love you, even if you do bat for the other team. ;)

You're absolutely right and we're finally heading back in the right direction. It's a step. A small, frustrating one, but still a step.

And incidentally, I love you, even if you do bat for the other team. ;)

Love you too, dude. *blows you a kiss*

By the time I enlightened my mom, she had only two years left to live. I guess it's never too late. But I get what you are saying. That's what I grew up with. it goes to show, if you push someone too hard in one direction, they'll bounce back and go the other way. :D

It's mostly my aunt (the one I usually call 'the good one') but mom still comes out with some stupid ass ideas at times. She talks to this particular aunt and they will gossip for hours about family. Mom tries to bring me in on the gossip and she doesn't seem to get it when I tell her 'I don't care because it's none of my business!'. But I know that some of that 'oh you're not really gay...' shit comes from my aunt. Mom is still following her big sister's lead and neither of them can get it in the damn heads that a person can find someone smart, funny and sexy as hell and not want to fuck them!

I love my mom but seriously the woman needs to freaking think about shit without consulting big sis.

Ach, people. *hugs*

I have to keep yelling at my dad, who makes inappropriate comments about Sarah Palin being a slut. Nowhere near yours, I know, but anyway.

Hopefully, these kinds of attitudes will fade away in this generation or the next.

*cough* sounds like your dad is calling her names much nicer than what I call her.

Hopefully, these kinds of attitudes will fade away in this generation or the next.

From your lips to god's and everyone's ears. *hugs you back*

We do have a long fucking way to go. Talking to my mom on instant message last night was painful. She was all McPalin'd out and she says she hates Obama ... she's 68 years old and originally from rural PA ... so don't think "redneck bigotry" only happens in the south! She's definitely not as bad as some people, but deep down inside she's a product of her early environment. Don't get me wrong, I love my mom more than anything, but I finally just had to tell her I was going downstairs because I just couldn't continue a rational conversation with her about this election!

I'd just hoped that... well you can figure out what the hell I'm hoping for because she's been so damn supportive of me and she voted against that stupid fucking anti-gay Amendment 2 (which tragically passed anyway).

Yeah, there really is a shitton of work to do, ain't there?

But hey - yes we can. :)

Kaz: Hug (Cam/Teal'c)kazbaby on November 5th, 2008 07:38 pm (UTC)
Yes, there is and damn sure we can, chicka. *hug*

*huggles you* I was terrified of telling her originally because I'd heard the slurs all my life but they usually were said casually as if they were just another name. (I learned my lesson to never say the n-word after I called a boy that when I was in the second grade, not understanding what it meant - only that it was an insult - and the hell it would bring for using it) The family (with the exception of T. My brother has actually come a damn long way with his homophobia and I hope that he continues becoming the good person I know that he can be.) were cool with me being gay. At least that's what mom and dad told me (dad would call me a faggot when he'd gotten really drunk and we'd fight but you already know how bad he got so I do my best to add that to the long list of things to forgive him for).

Tina had smiled and said she'd wondered when I'd come out because she figured I was for a damn long time. *snerk* It's actually times like this that I miss that girl even more because she was the only other person in the family that thought of others as I do.

I just expect better of people that claim to love me and who also claim to believe in a God of peace. If they can say can say things I mentioned up in the post, then they're nothing more than hypocrites and I do not have time for someone two-faced and hateful.

I'm glad you have a family of friends online to compensate for the relatives you have biologically.
