Do you think it’s possible to ever truly see the world from another person’s perspective, or are we held so tightly to our own way of viewing the world?

Oh boy. This is a tough one. I’m going to take the cop out answer and say it depends on the person. I’ve known both kinds in my life time. People who sit and listen and while they may not jump on the bandwagon, they can at least compromise perspective. I’ve also seen people react like rotweilers and latch on so tight to a subject that you can’t pry it from their jaws.

I guess the most opportunity I have had to witness both sides of my argument is with the gay thing. It’s funny, I have had people who liked me (I’ll even go as far as to say adore me) and once they find out I’m a lesbian, BOOM! I’m outta their lives. It’s horribly sad, but I know that whatever deep seeded issue they have with me being gay isn’t something that even my charismatic charm can change.

But I have also had people who didn’t accept gay people and didn’t believe in gay marriage who changed their mind after knowing me, Cheryl and my family.

I guess you have to take the good with the bad, but it’s the good that makes me the most proud.
