Are Friends aware of their own tendency to falsely assume that any interest in the same sex necessarily indicates an exclusively homosexual orientation; and to further falsely assume that interest in the opposite sex necessarily indicates an exclusively heterosexual orientation?

Here’s today’s Daily GIF!

In our culture, many of us idealize love. We see it as some lofty cure-all for all of life’s problems. Our movies and our stories and our history all celebrate it as life’s ultimate goal, the final solution for all of our pain and struggle. And because we idealize love, we overestimate it. As a result, our relationships pay a price.

When we believe that “all we need is love,” then like Lennon, we’re more likely to ignore fundamental values such as respect, humility and commitment towards the people we care about. After all, if love solves everything, then why bother with all the other stuff — all of the hard stuff?

But if, like Reznor, we believe that “love is not enough,” then we understand that healthy relationships require more than pure emotion or lofty passions. We understand that there are things more important in our lives and our relationships than simply being in love. And the success of our relationships hinges on these deeper and more important values.

MYTH OR FACT

Many transgender people regret transitioning (changing their gender presentation), especially if they have surgery or take hormones.

This is a MYTH! For most people, transitioning improves mental health and quality of life. And the satisfaction rates for both surgery and hormones are incredibly high. When a trans person transitions, however, they may experience a lot of emotional stress. This is usually not due to the transition itself, but happens because of horrible treatment by transphobic people. The best way to help is often by supporting their decision to transition, not by questioning it.
