“You just didn’t have enough love”
That’s the first line in a private message I received. It went on to say that the message was from someone who had gone to UC Berkley and I needed to get therapy and grow up.
For the record, I had plenty of love. If anything, I was too loved. Too coddled. Too shielded.
When did this idea that ‘all you need is love’ begin to permeate our society?
Ironically, it probably all started in 1967 when the Beatles released a song with that exact title. And it’s pathetic that society has fallen for it hook line and sinker. Yes, it sounds good. And in theory it would be wonderful, but in reality love is not all we need.
Gender and “sex” exist for very specific purposes, mainly to ensure the existence of the human race. We seem to think that now that we can create babies in test tubes, and birth them from women who look like men, we can just dismiss eons of human reality and erase gender altogether.
But ask yourself this, would you want to drink from a hairy breast grown from the chest of a man who used to be a woman? Or have four moms? Or six dads? Oh, but it’s ok so long as they love you?
It’s fanatical to me when someone who was raised in a heterosexual, or single parent household wants to belittle and berate me for my experience and try to tell me how I should have perceived my life. I should just be happy that I had two people that loved me.
Love from two women did not teach me how to have a relationship with a man.
Love from two women did not teach me how to be a wife.
If anything, love from two women taught me all the wrong things and made my relationships with the opposite sex harder and more complicated.
Love is not all you need.
