It Ain't the Hand You Are Dealt...

A desiderata of sorts...

I won't compromise or negotiate with you respecting my integrity.

It is not the hand you are dealt, it is how you play the cards.

You cannot judge another on how they play their cards.

If you are a general, I have no objections, just don't ask me to believe you are defending my freedoms.  It's clearly not true, I don't believe it.

If you are a man who made a vowed a lifelong commitment to his male friend, it's none of my business, but do not ask me to call it "marriage."

If you run a casino and want to call it gaming, fine with me, but don't expect me to ignore the game is every customer loses.

And so on...

I'm no better than you, but don't you dare ask me to be less than you by pretending you are more than you are.  Not only does it deprecate me, it also, for what it is worth, militates against your integrity to have me view you in pretense.
