I remembered just know when my partner & I had to move out of our first flat and wanted to share a house for a while. We found a lovely house, and went to view the room. The owner was a really nice lady - possibly in her 40s and she had the nicest dog called Joey. She was really nice to us and really welcoming and the house was just perfect.
When we started to discuss things with her she said something that I find really puzzling. She asked us if we would not make it obvious that we are a couple in front of her grandson because “he’s too young to know about… You know, that type of life. We didn’t end up going for the room after that but I find the comment really strange. What type of life? The fact that 2 people who are read female are in love? That we live together and have pet rats together? What did she mean by that type of life? Does a same sex couple automatically mean immoral? Did she think we were gonna invite over the rest of our lesbian tribe and have an orgy in front of her grandson?
It was over 2 years ago now but I just remembered and am confuddled and offended all over again.
