This earworm makes me happy

  1. I love it! I’m so glad to see younger generations throwing off more and more norms…I wish I could be young in this age and experience some of that freedom. My mom is 77 and I’m 46…she still calls me a whore for walking in and finding me kissing my boyfriend when I was 19 (thank god she didn’t see me kissing a girl, or she might have beat me to death). Neither of my parents have let go of the norms of their time AT ALL.

    Happy Mother’s Day Quix…I raise a glass to you!

    1. Your mom calls you a whore for walking in on you kissing your boyfriend when you were young??? Holy shit, that’s brutal. YIKES. I’m almost wish she HAD seen you kissing a girl. Why not give her something more to be upset at? Just for laughs.

      I’m with you about seeing younger generations throwing off norms. It’s really great to see people comfortable with themselves. My daughter told me the other day that she is a bisexual panromantic demisexual/romantic. What that means is that she’s attracted to boys and girls, romantically likes people of any gender (including genderfluid/trans), yet she doesn’t feel MUCH attraction (romantic or sexual) with anyone. I’m really intrigued and proud that she’s open to figuring this out so young.

      1. I love your viewpoint and have never looked at it that way…my mom’s already calling me a whore on a regular basis, so why am I so worried about upsetting her more? LOL. My mom is someone who can be extraordinarily generous, and yet so cruel at the same time…it leaves me feeling extremely conflicted about her. Kind of like the cognitive dissonance I had about religion in my last days of believing.

        How wonderful that your daughter felt free to discuss her orientation with you. She must trust you on a deep level (even if she hates you for taking her phone). It’s a parenting win that she can talk to you!

  2. That was great!
    Back in the late 80s I liked to play music by Jimmy Sommerville and say, “This is a guy.” Then follow with Allison Moyet and say, “This is a girl.”… and watch people’s brains explode.

About Quixie

Hi! I go by "Quixie." Quixie is a shortened version of "quixotic," which means: "exceedingly idealistic; unrealistic and impractical." It's how I described my evangelical Christian faith when I started blogging 5 years ago. Now I'm an agnostic atheist who is trying to find a balance between idealism and reality. I write primarily about my mental health journey (I have bipolar disorder), and I also discuss my deconversion, mindfulness, exercise, music, reading, and other cultural topics.
