I’m not LGBTQ but encountered this today..
I’ve invited about 104 people to our wedding. we invited our loved one, friends and fam alike. At anytime it could go redneck, ghetto or crazy. were a electic bunch hahah!! So today.. I get a text from a dear friend from high school, I’ll call her M, M asked me if anyone at the wedding would be offended by her and her wife. Apparently she went to an event where someone made a comment and it got ugly. I have 2 other F/F married couples, my cousin and his partner and 3 drag queens and a one who just had a reassignment all coming, all of which I’d never trade for the world. 20+ years of friendship right there. That call… its bugging me.. made me sad, it upset me because she asked, because she feels like she had to ask because some narrow minded fool acted out of his mind and caused a scene. I dont get these things and I’m glad I dont get it the narrow minded people. I just needed to vent, I’ve been pissy about it all day. Thanks for the vent xoxox

Shes been ‘family’ since I was a senior in hs and she was a freshman (back in 1993). Most of the people that are going we went to school with or family of mine she knows. I’d kick someones butt, in my dress, for acting stupid on any level LOL 😉

Aw, that is sad. I feel angry and upset for her. It’s unfortunate that she feels she has to take on the burden because of some ignorant person and their comments.
Thankfully it sounds like your party will be a blast and everyone will feel welcome! Have a great time, it’s coming up quickly! 🙂

at least she has you as a friend to support her and it sounds like your party will be very welcoming towards her and her wife!

No one I’m close to has any issues with anyone unless they are a jerk. I didnt invite alot of my blood relatives (for a reason lol). Nothing is an issue unless its not moral or legal. Thats how I was raised.. my mom too. mygrandpa was full Filipino, fought in WW2 but was shunned after the war for the color of skin skin, my grandma was white. In high school my mom got in trouble for sharing cookies in class with a black girl. (seriously wtf?) This was all in the 50’s but still. That kind of BS has never been an issue with anyone I know. My parents enjoy everyone who has a good heart and that was passed on to us (should be for everyone). I guess thats why it upset me so much that she asked, no one should feel like who they are is an issue.

yes, it’s too bad she felt the need to ask. but it’s awesome that you are totally great with it, and that there will be other queer visibility at your wedding too, so they’ll feel comfortable and welcome. yay for diversity!

I feel bad for her that it happened and she needed to ask. She is lucky to have you as her friend and rather than be mad, try and be supportive and picture yourself in her shoes. The world does need more people like you, who welcome all diversity. Cheers to that!

T.T That is so sad…I don’t understand how people can be such idiots.
The world is better because of people like you.
