I hate when news and politics shows do segments on gay marriage and they say things like, ‘Gay couples already have civil partnerships which afford them many of the same rights as marriage, so why is there a call for gay marriage?’ BECAUSE IT’S NOT FUCKING EQUALITY DUMB-DUMB. Agggghhhhhh I hate you all.
I loathe how society crams heterosexuality down our throats. Everywhere in the world (there’s probably some exceptions to that statement) straight couples can walk down the street hand in hand or kiss and people don’t turn a head. Yet lgbt couples are meant to hide, it’s all bottom shelf paper bag, as if it just doesn’t happen, society expects us to go along and pretend we’re not there. Things are definitely changing in a lot of places where acceptance is now commonplace but it’s just not the same, we just don’t have the same treatment. Especially in the media. Forever straight couples. It just hit me when I was looking at a tourist billboard in town which was selling the idea of a happy nuclear family, 40 something parents and their 2.4 happy children, all happy all smiles. And that is what we always see. Why does it have to be a nuclear family? Never a anything different, no gay or lesbian or trans couples. And to go even further it’s basically always white families. It seems to me it’s because the media are just too scared to piss people off, they don’t want to piss off the homophobes, the die hard conservatives, the Mitt Romneys of this world. It’s so infuriating because in the western world we’re wrapped in a cocoon of consumerism still seemingly centred around a nuclear family, an idea outdated by years in today’s society, today’s age of uninnocence. Most of all I feel so sorry for kids growing up with all this, the ones who end up convincing themselves that being lgbt is wrong because they don’t see it in the media.
I just don’t even know. There are just certain moments when I really hate that I live on the same planet as such utter clusterfucks of people.
Let’s first off just take a look at what homophobia is in its most basic form: “Homophobia is a range of negative attitudes and feelings toward homosexuality or people who are identified or perceived as being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT). Definitions refer variably to antipathy, contempt, prejudice, aversion, irrational fear, and hatred.” Ok glad we got that straightened out. So you, by stating that you are not homophobic, clearly want to tell the world that you have no negative feelings towards homosexuals or any LGBT people yet you believe we should be castrated, we should be punched in the face for being courageous enough to be ourselves, us expressing our physical love for someone is ‘not right’ and of course our lives are screwed up if we feel we are trapped in the wrong body. I mean, thank god you’re not contradicting yourself or anything, that would be embarrassing.
I pity them all when it comes down to it. They probably don’t deserve anyone’s pity and probably don’t even know what it means but they have it. I pity them because they clearly live their life in fear of the different and the people who are so wholly different to them and so they will probably spend their entire life covering their fear in hatred and not seeing a bigger picture. Hatred is such a waste of energy and time; hatred and anger are worth nothing. I might even respect them a tiny bit more if they weren’t trying to come off as accepting and ‘cool’ and not homophobic, if they weren’t trying the stress what they supposedly are while so clearly demonstrating that they are the antithesis of that. If you want to hate upon the lgbt community then just go ahead and do it, why do you have to pretend that isn’t what you’re doing? As I said I might have had a tiny bit more respect then but I doubt it.
I just cried, that’s horrible
How are they even allowed to have that?
I am ashamed to be an American citizen. I am ashamed to share the same homeland as these bigots. These so-called Christians don’t follow God. They use God. They use their filthy, distorted version of God as the foundation for their hate and as a way to have their disgusting, hate-filled protests unaffected by the law. They twist the words of a book, a book which has already been altered indefinitely over thousands of years just to accommodate man’s desires so much that I don’t even consider it right to truly take the word of anyway, to suit their atrocious desires.
I am ashamed of these horrible people.
King James Version (KJV)
34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
…this is why i laugh at the WBC they will get a major shock when they die.
I AM SCREAMING THAT IS LITERALLY DISGUSTING
THEY NEED TO FUCKING SHUT THE HELL UP OH MY GOD
OH MY GOD
I can’t even. Please just watch this.
Your sexual orientation is part of you from the outset. You don’t choose it. It chooses you.
