As all die-hard Star Trek Next Gen fans know, in addition to being Father's Day, today is also Captain Picard Day...Just a refresher for those who don't know, June 16th was chosen due to it's equivalent to Stardate 47457.1 referenced in the 7th season episode 'Pegasus" - Patrick Stewart's Picard has always been a 'Father Figure' for me...And I believe for @A_Ron_Hubbard. I thought we should give him a "shout out"....Here's a video clip for nostalgia: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JiKwAS1qaCk
As a psychotherapist and certified sex therapist, I can tell you that there are deep seated reasons why some folks are severely 'triggered' by the idea of same-gender relationships. Let's say you've had erotic fantasies or attractions (even fleeting) towards the same gender at some point in your life. Add to that the shame and judgement you learned as a result of long-time religious dogma. What do you get? Homophobia. I have a great deal of empathy towards folks who are locked in a prison such as this. That said, thank you @A_Ron_Hubbard @Jim @Cecily for modeling healthy tolerance of difference...It's folks like you who make the world a better place.
