I am someone who believes that love is just that: Love.
I don’t care if you’re gay, straight, bi, transgender, or purple with pink polka dots – if you can find someone to be happy with, then why should you refrain because of the twisted view of some?
I have several aunts, an uncle, some cousins and many a great friend who all identify as “Gay” – and one of them was scared to tell me, in case I was upset by their decision to clean out their closet. News Flash! I don’t give a flying rats patootie!
The decision to come clean is not an easy one for any person to make. It involves a lot of heart ache, fear, soul searching and guts. I am one of these people who can appreciate those facts, and will give you the kudos you deserve for admitting to a close minded world that you are “breaking the mold.”
There are several groups now where the GLBT community can recieve support. These groups are an invaluable source for the people who are ridiculed and threatened because of their sexual orientation.
I’ve been told “They choose to be gay.” Well, when did you choose to be straight? And don’t forget, it’s straight people who are making the (to quote Sweet Mother) Gaybies!
To say that two gay people getting married is desanctifying the sacred tradition is such a stretch that it is impossible to fully grasp. What about the millions of people who have been married 1, 2, 3, 4 times? How is that not desanctifying? Is marrying someone of the same sex going to lead to animal marriages outside of the Jerry Springer show?
When two people make a decision to be married, it means that they are so in love that they cannot imagine their lives without the other person in it. It means they are going to create a home where they can be a family, and yes, possibly raise babies. It means the level of commitment they have extends beyond the realm of ticking “de facto” on the information sheets.
I know plenty of people raised by gay parents – and they are all the most accepting and non-judgemental people I know. I know plenty of people raised by straight parents who so judgemental that I want to pull the stick out of their ass.
I don’t understand how people who love each other can be condemned for that love? But straight people aren’t. Does this means that ones love is invalid compared to the other?
I know that if someone was to say to me “you and Daniel can’t get married, because you’re not in a real relationship and you will be ruining the sanctity of marriage,” I would be fuming! I would be taking names and kicking back sides, I would be doing everything I possibly could because I know it would be wrong.
So why are there so many people out there willing to lynch other people for their sexual preference!? Does it really matter, so long as they’re not forcing it on you? If God wants all his chlidren to be happy and loved, why is there somuch hatred from the religious groups?
Why are we “straighties” allowed to decide what is real, what is worthy, and what is valid, in a relationship that is between two gay people?
Personally, I don’t give a shit what you do, or what sex the person you marry is, as long as you still stay the same. So don’t be turning into any animals or anything, alright?
