This has been bugging me for quite awhile.
I get it. Some people are Gay. I really am happy you can be with who you want.
But, quit shoving it down our throats. You are 5% of the population.
How many gay people are there in the United States? The Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law, a sexual orientation law and public policy think
tank, estimates that 9 million (about 3.8%) of Americans identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender (2011). The institute also found that
bisexuals make up 1.8% of the population, while 1.7% are gay or lesbian. Transgender adults make up 0.3% of the population.
I have always loved my Gay Friends. They are not militant. But this whole LGBT?
Live your life. Why live your life constantly being identified by your sexuality?
I am not speaking about all Gay people. Just the small army of militant Gays.
Stop it......End Rant.
im bisexual, as most would say. but for me, i hate the label and the whole "lgbtq" labels. i like who i like. im stuck in the middle of this gay
marriage thing in way, of course itd be amazing if gay people could marry their significant other but at the same time i completely agree with what
youre saying. the media and everyone needs to stop making this such a big deal. the only problem is the media wont stop making a big deal until gay
marriage isnt a big deal. right now theres so many countries and states, what have you, that are making it legal so its going to be a big topic. but
why do we have to make it legal? why is gay marriage something that can even be made illegal in the first place? its not like being a drug dealer or
killing someone or stealing. its being in love, it just happens to be with someone of the same sex.
i got into an argument the other day with a kid ive known since i was 3 years old. we grew up in the same town, we went to school together from
preschool to 5th grade, we went to the same church, i know his family. hes that big jock guy, the football player, ya know? like emilio estevez in the
breakfast club or charlie sheen in lucas. except instead of having a heart of gold like both those characters hes really just a huge asshole. so he
had posted something on facebook that turned out to be a fake article. it was a rumor about ja rule cheating on his wife with a man he met in jail. to
this, the kid i know, stated "not gonna listen to this guy anymore". simply because he may or may not be gay. now this kid has said some pretty
homophobic stuff on facebook before and ive ignored it. but this really got to me because he started to talk about how it was sickening. so i broke
the "dont get into facebook fights" rule and started commenting on the link he shared. hes a very religious person---catholic--- and says this is
the way he was raised and what he was taught to believe in. even though one time he said something homophobic on facebook before and his own brother
was like "what is wrong with you?", so its clearly not something that was brought on by his upbringing. i mean granted i havent seen the guy in
almost 10 years because i moved after 5th grade. but im friends with all the kids i used to go to school with on facebook. i watched them grow up over
myspace and then facebook. ive seen how they turned out. and he is one of those kids that i pegged when i was still a little kid. hes just one of
those guys whos too macho for his own good and i had said to him that he clearly posted that article on there to let all his friends and family know
how much of a man he was, because hes that uncomfortable with his own sexuality. thats what it starts to come down to though. i had said to him that
gay marriage in no way, shape, or form affects his day to day life. he will still wkae up every morning, he will still work, he will still breathe.
its not gonna make the way he drives any different, hes still going to go hang out with his friends and get drunk. it literally has no effect on him
whatsoever. but that didnt matter to him. he just wanted to let everyone know that it was gross.
so aside from the whole argument he and i got in hes been posting about this whole phil from duck dynasty thing and its almost like he thinks that hes
on the same page with what phil has to say about gay people. but hes so far from it. because phil simply stated that that is how he interprets the
bible and thats what he believes and that right there is the difference between what the kid has to say and what phil does because phil couldve been
rude about it. he couldve shown his real hillbilly, redneck, racist, homophobic views. but he didnt. he didnt say it was gross or sickening or go on
to tell someone that he'll never raise his children that way because its not natural and then disregard them when they say "just because you try to
a raise a child a certain way doesnt mean they wont have their own ideologies when it comes to life". he just said this is what the bible says and
this is how i see it. it is of course homophobic in the sense that its against gays and gay culture but at the same time he couldve called them all
faggots and said they were gonna burn in hell. but phil didnt.
its arguments and views like that that keep the fight for freedom alive and in the media, but whos fight is it? the people wanting gay marriage to
become legal or the ones condemning it? you always hear "oh everyones entitled to their own opinion" but when does something like that stop
becoming an opinion and start becoming just down right wrong?
