Bloguarany 9 What do people incorrectly assume about you?
Because of my age, I am someone’s sweet naive grandma, who has no interest in sex and probably never liked it anyway, who is ignorant of all aspects of the internet and sits in a rocking chair all day, knitting and waiting to die.
Because of my size, I am a lazy glutton who doesn’t care about herself and is, or should be, ashamed of how she looks.
Because of my beliefs, am I a godless heathen who is destined to burn in hell, simply because I rejected Jesus as my personal savior, a sign of the ignorance of the truth.
All of this is incorrect. I often get told I don’t act like someone who is 71, and when they hear my voice, they say I sound much younger than that. And I still have a sex-positive attitude towards sex and still get aroused by things that would shock others even if I was younger.
Too many assume that others are heavy because they eat too many calories, but weight is more complicated than that. If it were that easy, everyone would be thin.
And the arrogance that Christians have about religion is galling. They feel they have the right to dictate to everyone else what to believe and how to live. Most are shocked that I have to disagree with that.
