You know, a lot of people don't understand this, but certain public outbursts are extremely annoying, even when done by women. I would never go out
with certain women who like to show outbursts in public and like to act...plastic. Plastic women are extremely annoying to me, and even if they were
the most beautiful in the world I wouldn't even think about going out with any of them.
If you are gay, or lesbian, or whatever that's fine, what I really dislike is there are times when I am out in the streets and a gay person whistles
at me, or tries to make a pass, and when I tell them I am straight some of them just keep going even with my girlfriend besides me. I am not Brat
Pitt for crying out loud but there are some gay people that just keep on going even after you tell them to please stop. I have seen the same thing
happen to friends of mine. This only used to happen to women, now it happens to us men too.
I blame this "new behavior" (it's been happening more and more for the past 15-20 years or so) to these drama displays that people are told "you must
show your pride of being in this minority group... go out and tell, no... yell to the world what you are"... Seriously, who cares?...
Is the simple matter of people being either gay, or lesbian or straight going to make the world a better place?... No
Is it going to stop all the problems happening in the world because you are making a scene in the streets yelling to the world you are proud of being
in x group?... No
Being gay/being lesbian, being Hispanic, a woman and in general "being part of any minority" is being used by certain groups, who don't really care
about who you really are, to use people in these minorities just to make a show, as a political tool, to even get funding, and simply to "SEPARATE
BTW, I am Hispanic so I belong to a minority group as well, but I don't see any problems being solved by me going to the streets with a sign
proclaiming and yelling "I am Hispanic!!!"...
Why can't people just act normal without trying to cause drama in the streets? I don't go around with an ad in my hands yelling "I am straight, I am
straight"... WHO CARES??? Of course except whomever you are having a relationship with, most other people don't really care, or mind in what group
you put yourself in.
These demonstrations of "pride" in the streets are nothing more than attempts to divide you from everyone else.
I don't care/mind whether you are gay, lesbian, transsexual, or heterosexual, or whatever else you want to be. It is your choice, but I do find it
ironic how for example some people, from any group, want to proclaim their pride of being who they are but at the same time want to belittle anyone
who is not like them. It happens amongst many different groups of people.
I am not saying "everyone in some groups are like this", but haven't you noticed how for example some gay people, since we are taking about
homosexuality, like to show their pride but want to belittle for example religious people? It also happens the other way around of course where some
religious people want to show their pride and proclaim every gay/lesbian person will go to hell"... Not all religious people are like that, just
like not all gay/lesbian people are like that.
What you are, and what you choose to believe in is something personal for each person, and shouldn't be used as "ammunition to belittle others
different than yourself."
People should accept others and themselves as they are instead of trying to change anyone different than them. This goes for ALL groups.
