Yo, I gotta question for y'all that I've been thinkin' about. [He started off sounding sure of himself, but falls silent for a moment. How does he even bring this up? It's not as though it was talked about, ever, at home; definitely not in polite or public company. He's a little quieter when he speaks again:]

So I saw that --uh, clock guy was talkin' about-- [God, it's a good thing this is voice, he really wouldn't like the entirety of the fleet to see him blushing like a young lady with a crush.] --Um, gentlemen that are more inclined t' court other gentlemen. An' I saw it, too, during those memories.

I'm just wonderin': that's accepted, here? Is it accepted for the rest of y'all, too? 'Cause I sure as hell didn't see anyone posing any objections to it. Which is amazing, really, 'cause back home we couldn't do nothin' like that at all, and I was just ...curious, I guess.



[[OOC: Warning for uh. 18th century views on gay people? Since John's, you know, from 1782, but I figured I'd toss a warning out just to be safe.]

It depends on the specifics, like any other relationship.

[ Signy can't pretend she's happy about the fact that her commanding officer dismissed her opinions partly because of who was giving opinions in his bed, but that has nothing to do with the fact that they're both men. ]

I can't speak for everyone here, but I accept it, and I certainly wouldn't stand for someone trying to discriminate against anyone else for their preferences. In my world, it's nothing anyone would look twice at. We can't stop anyone from thinking unkind thoughts about it, but using it as a reason to deny someone basic rights is unacceptable.

I myself prefer males and females of any number of species.

I don't see why is wouldn't be accepted.

[Have a young woman with spots, smiling.]

The preferences of other people, how does that really affect the rest of us. Look at me, I've been a man and a woman so many times, I can't help but find beauty in anyone I meet.

I am from the same world as 'the clock guy' [thank you, Captain Obvious] and it is not generally accepted there, either. The eighteenth century, she is not so willing to divert from the status quo, no?

But I have found people here to be very accepting. Other worlds and times too! Men can marry other men in Earth's future, isn't that something to be amazed for?

It seems to be regarded as entirely normal here. I was a little surprised when I first encountered it, too - every society has their own views, but most of the ones I've known were never quite as...nonchalant about that kind of thing.
volitans: (70)

[personal profile] volitans 2017-07-10 02:00 am (UTC)(link)
Mostly accepted, by people who aren't bigoted assholes or think that it's unnatural or a sin. Which I'd like to say is most of the country, but...well. There are a lot more assholes than you might think.

But it's legal. Nobody can be put in jail for it, and you can marry whoever you want. It's just that there's still a long way to go. But we've come a long way from your time, too.

Curious, hm?

[He gives the camera a long look, putting his chin down on his fist in thought]

I suppose back home it was decently permissive. Certain people didn't much care for it, but that's merely the prejudice of the few, and frankly none of their business. It was never against any kind of rule.

It is not acceptable amongst my people. (He sounds a little morose over that.) Much is possible and welcomed amongst the Fleet that I never considered.
