Stereotyping does no one any good, so why is it that we cling to them so long, or so much. I mean, come, come now, people! Do you really have to blurt an advisory “no homo” every time that you want to hug a girl or a guy if their gender happens to match your own? A friend once told me that he’d like to wear wristbands, high-tech ones, that would, with a glance at their colors, tell you all that you’d like to know about someone, or even more, and if they’re someone you’d like to be friends with. Practically a Facebook on-the-go. Truthfully, someone spewing colorful slurs can do that in a heartbeat as well, but I like the idea. It’s honest, and I think that’s something that people have been lacking lately. If there were honesty with yourself, would you not be confident enough in your own sexuality to hug away, and being able to live with yourself afterwards. I wouldn’t mind those bracelets, even though secrets would dissolve into nothingness. Maybe then the question, “Show me your colors,” won’t hit so close to the heart.
