I saw two beautiful young women kiss while wearing wedding dresses. The two were very in love. This kinda thing is totally normal other than the fact that I live in a super conservative area in Tennessee and we were at cookout(a late night fast food restaurant) at 3am. There were more than 50 people in this tiny restaurant and as they were leaving someone finally asked if they had just got married.
They had. They were both total babes. They kissed and 50+ drunken college kids hollered and wooed and cheered. I would put money on me being the loudest of the bunch.
I’m sure many were wooing for all the wrong reasons but it was still super nice to have that kinda thing be met with joyous applause as opposed to the judgmental looks and jeers I’m used to.
Tennessee is slowly but surely getting cooler. I’m glad I could witness it and I hope I can stick it out until it truly becomes a place free of judgement that accepts people of all backgrounds, sexual orientations and mindsets.
More than anything I just want a love that I can plant a frencher on in a fast food dining room at 330 in the morning and have that glorious act of love be met with nothing more than the hoots and hollers of ecstatic strangers who are overjoyed with our newly concreted nuptials.
Peace and love. The future is here.
Well. Maybe there’s some hope for this crazy place, after all.
