RE my last post, someone commented this, and I feel it is important you all read it:

You are a beautiful person. 🙂 Thank you for understanding, for not understanding and being brave enough to ask questions, and for recognizing the human being in the woman before you.

This made me smile. It made me smile, in validating my questions, in my acceptance of my somewhat ignorance, and wanting to disspell this ignorance.

Don’t be afraid to ask “why.” If the person is afraid to answer, they are not worthy of the responsibility of knowing. Knowledge is to be shared, not hoarded.
