So, apparently I have a friend who actually and honestly subscribes to the maxim “Don’t like gay marriage? Don’t have one!”
She’s morally against homosexuality (as a Christian), but in favour of the legalisation of gay marriage because people should be able to do what they want and that’s just her personal morals.
I honestly don’t know how to feel about this? It -
On the one hand, it’s completely absurd and narrow and close-minded because really? Really? Anyone ~morally against homosexuality~ is just plain - eugh; and also what’s your stance on other sexual identities? Gender? I don’t - that is just awfully stupid.
But then, on the other hand…
I mean, that’s remarkably tolerant.
I don’t know how to feel anymore.
I’m not sure it’s so badly named. Douglas boggles that Martin named his company after “the first failed pilot” - but Icarus wasn’t just a failed pilot. He wasn’t the most intelligent of men or anything - it was his father, after all, who made the wings - but he was a pilot. (Of sorts.) And his sin was not bad flying, per se - just over-enthusiasm.
Martin didn’t name his company after the first failed pilot; he named it after the first pilot who enjoyed it.
