One of the posts I am sharing below deals with identifying one’s own sexuality and how it can influence you when you do or don’t come out to others around you. Also in this week, I commented on another blog I am sharing, and I also had a conversation about it with my son. We are who we are. I am who I am, my son is who he is, and other people are who they are. People shouldn’t be judged for who they are, or worse even, bullied. Just treat other people with the same respect you want them to treat you, no matter their beliefs, their sexuality, their religion, their political preference. We, as human beings, are far to quick to judge those who are not the same as we are. Why? Is it because we don’t understand and therefore fear it? Is it because we have a wrong impression of what exactly the other’s preference means, and since it’s not in line with our own beliefs, we feel entitled to judge? I have no answers to these questions, but just one request: start with yourself. Don’t be prejudiced. Treat others with the respect you want to be treated with.
Enough ‘preaching’ from my side. It’s time to share a lot of sexiness…
I recently had a talk with my son about accepting other people as they are, no matter their sexuality, religion, political beliefs, as long as they are not hurting or harming anyone else with what they do. I have this talk quite frequently, with my children, with colleagues, with friends, acquaintances… and then this week I read The Pain of Tolerance and Floss says it so much better than I do!
The Food for Thought prompt this week was about ‘mistakes’, and Eye wrote a post, Mistakes, that could in some or other way be applied to all of our lives.
I want to kiss Violet after reading her post, Introspection during Pride month, and cannot agree with her more on this: I’m not asking you to understand it. I’m not even asking you to like it. I’m just asking not to bully or worse. Everyone has the right to a normal happy life, gay, straight, whatever.

The writers of the Smut Marathon are into the sixth writing round, which means the results of the fifth voting round has been published. Round 5 was not a knockout round, but round 6 is, and round 6 is also the last of the rankings rounds. This means not only at the end of the sixth round will writers be knocked out of the competition, but every round from now on is a knockout round.
The first prize winner — the winner of the rankings rounds — will be known when the results of the sixth round is published. But first the writers have to write their stories, and everyone has to cast their votes to keep their favorite writers in the competition!
Last but not least
Pride & Prejudice… I bet when you saw the title, you too thought of the book by Jane Austen. Back when I was in university, studying languages, I had to read this book, and no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t. I couldn’t get through it; couldn’t get into the story. Then, some years ago I saw the movie, and where I know a movie is never as good as a book, was totally in love with the story, and now the book is still on my reading list. There comes a day that I will get back to reading…
