Taking a break from writing college stuff, but since no one else posted and I still love this website too much to let it die. I’m not really in school so I don’t have any “school” related things to post on, but I do have some issues I’d like to discuss.
Believe it or not, homosexuality and homophobia are things you’re going to have to deal with when you’re in college and in the work place and in the real world because news flash homosexuals and bisexuals and transexuals? Not. Going. Anywhere. No matter how much you want to believe that it’s not true, it’s a choice, or your children are doing it to piss you off.
I am so tired of all this stupid homophobia. I used to be homophobic. I used to tell people they’re going to hell for being in love with the person their heart truly wants them to be with. Then something happened in my life, something that made me completely know and understand exactly what the LGBT community goes through on a daily basis from all these closed-minded fools. I fell in love with a woman.
So much changed about my life after that. You don’t know how much your insults can truly hurt someone until you “walk a mile in their shoes” and I have. I’ve gone through falling in love with someone of the same sex, but I’ve also been in love with someone of the opposite sex.
And with the same-sex relationship I endured hatred from my mother, even when I didn’t come out, when I just called this woman my friend my mother hated me. She wanted to kick me out, my friends abandoned me, but why? Because I fell in love with someone? That is all homosexuality is. It is falling in love with someone you can’t help but fall in love with.
So stop hating! I don’t understand what all this hatred is about! It is so stupid to hate someone because who they fell in love with. All you ignorant homophobes are acting just like those racist jerks that were against relationships of people of different races. That is all this is, another form of racism and I hate it.
I’m exhausted from all this fighting and explaining I have to do when people tell me that everyone who is gay chose to live a lifetime of ridicule and pain because being gay is totally a choice. You can be gay one day and straight the next. I never stopped loving women and I don’t think I ever stopped loving the first woman I ever loved, that would be near impossible. However, I fell deeply in love with a man.
If your first thought was “well she’s lucky then” you’re wrong. I’m not lucky. Why? Because I can’t love who I want to love because of prejudice! And not just from straight people, from gay people too. Neither side of the fence wants people like me because they honestly believe there aren’t people who can love both sides. You have to be one thing or the other, no inbetween, no gray area. Or you’re 100% a slut.
Now, I don’t discriminate against straight people (or closed-minded homosexuals, for that matter) even though most of the time you jerks piss me off, but I don’t say “you shouldn’t be straight because it’s wrong and your going to hell” because my religion dictates that.
And what does Christianity really say about homosexuality? Hm?
Show me the receipts, Christians. Show me the receipts.
