There is one thing that I can’t understand – why are we still having these stereotypical conversations or assumptions in 2010? What I mean is – why are we still using heterosexual assumptions about relationships when we meet somebody? Why would we have to make a choice to come out or not every time we meet somebody who makes an assumption that you are straight? So many times people ask me if I am married and when the answer is yes, they ask me what my husband does.
With all the information that is available, with all the diversity we should be able to understand that it is kind of rude to assume things. 10 to 20% of people are gay, bisexual or transgender and not all of them can be categorized by stickers on their foreheads.
No matter what your believes are, no matter what you think is normal, you should not be making assumptions every time you see a ring on somebody’s finger. And I think it can be applied to anybody. Why are people assuming that the happiness in this life looks and smells like a “relationship”? People do not have to be in a relationship to have a fulfilled life. And if they are in one, it doesn’t mean they are in a relationship with an opposite sex.
