We Are Who We Are

Some people take issue with same-sex marriage.  They want the Constitution to specify that the institution of marriage, in accordance with their biblical viewpoint, is strictly a relationship between a man and a woman.   I really don’t want to get into this debate, yet I find myself perplexed by the whole thing.  As many of my readers know, my lesbian moms raised me since I was two years old and I definitely turned out okay.  Am I gay?  No.  And it wouldn’t matter if I were.  The point I’m making is that we are who we are, mostly a product of genetics.  The fact that my moms were bonobos to boot, well, that didn't make me want to go around and have sex with non-human primates.  Why can't we just accept each other?  Geesh.
