I think part of being human is being imperfect, but still we have the idea or stereotype of a perfect body, perfect friends, perfect love.. Do you think is our duty to try to reach that perfection or we should stay happily imperfect?
Is this an attitude we've developed because we don't want to deal with the gravity of certain mistakes? Aren't mistakes supposed to be a little embarrassing? I think that's how you learn a lesson from it, and not to do it again.
Is this another byproduct of political correctness?
"We were playing Truth or Dare on the Golden Gate Bridge and Jack dared me to ask a stranger to hug me. I spotted a genial-looking lady resting by her bike and decided to approach her timidly and ask in my most rapid unthreatening voice, Um, could I possibly hug you? Sure! Are you just hugging people today? she replied, and opened her arms.Thank you so much!! It was actually a dare from a friend, I confessed in a hushed voice before rushing away, chortling, and after I'd put some distance between us, I shrieked, I LOVE SAN FRANCISCO!" - Adora Svitak
Ok, I dare you all to do this and report back!
(You don't necessarily have to love SF afterwards;-)
Same sex couples want to get married. I see the religious hang up here, but are you really going to lose sleep at night? If two people can be happy together, who gave anyone the right to deny someone of that.
