So, Valentine's Day soon. Great holiday, all about the love and the friendship and not the remembering how someone died horrifically and people use a crude rendition of a heart to symbolise it. Likin' the cherubs, by the way, though they look a bit cold. Are they cold? They need warmer stuff...
Anyway. Valentine's Day. The whole idea of celebrating love isn't unique to Earth but this holiday is and... well, Earth colonies and apparently here but what gets me is the variations on how people within this one world celebrate it. Men give to women, women give to men, men give to men, women to women, non binary to non binary... All the aspects of life sharing this idea of love.
But... why's it always romantic love?
Okay, I mean, I get why
. The saint was killed for performing marriages during a time that certain marriages weren't being allowed so the idea of promoting romantic love is great but
... isn't there kind of a lot of promotion and celebrating of that? What about platonic love? Though what people consider platonic, well, Plato wouldn't be impressed, that's not what he meant. Not the point.
Lots of love in the world. Should be celebratin' all the kinds, not just one.
