This historic week changed our United States. The Supreme Court saved the Affordable Care Act. They enabled marriage equality. And the Confederate Flag is coming down.
I agree with all of the above, and I respect the opinions of those who don’t. Free speech; that’s one of the amazingly graceful attributes of our fabulous U.S.A.
With that said …
Yesterday evening, after a ride, a woman approached. She wanted to talk with me about lesbians in sports. Not sure why she singled me out. Maybe to her my padded bike shorts made me look butch. I happen to like padded bike shorts especially during a 50+ mile ride. They protect my beautiful, precious, sacred womanhood. I digress.
Anyway, I didn’t want to talk about lesbians or for that matter lesbians in sport. And no matter how much I tried to convince her that I was not a lesbian, that I didn’t have an opinion on the subject, and besides, who cares !!! She pressed on.
The other amazingly graceful attribute of our great U.S.A. and of free will – we can walk away from blind rhetoric. That I did.
Always tri. Never stop.
