Gay people have rights. Who are we within this society to say they do not? Gay people are constructive within our communities, they pay taxes, they are human beings. I find that people discriminate against the gay community because of the sexual preferences involved. Who are we heterosexuals to preach to anyone about sexual preferences? Who are we to declare a group of people
“abnormal” due to the fact that we do not relate to their sexual views?
I believe that gay couples should be allowed to marry. How can the gay community screw up the sanctity of marriage any worse than we hetereosexuals? Most of we “straight” people are divorced. Can we heterosexuals truly deem ourselves the experts on relationships? I do not agree with this reasoning, we can not throw accusations at the gay community when we heterosexuals are indeed not perfect and can not keep marriages or relationships together. Most gay couples are together for life or at the least years on end. I say we could learn from the gay community. The gay community evidently understands the meaning of relationships. I also feel that most men that do not like homosexuals are indeed curious themselves. A homosexual man makes them nervous. A real man who is content with his own sexuality will not be intimidated by a gay man being within his company. Same logic applies to women. We need to stop being hypocrites. We need to realize that just because someone is gay this fact alone does not make them any less a human being. I’m so sick of hearing “It’s not natural!” The one person who use to state this to me continually was an abuser of women, I’m assuming that homosexuality in his eyes was not natural but abusing women was natural, as I stated earlier, people are hypocrites.
I’m hoping for the day that our country will stop taking the conservative approach to this topic and realize that even gay couples can be dedicated to one another as well as deserving of the same benefits of heterosexual couples.
People claim that we live in a free country. I say our country is ruled by religious conservatives. Homosexuality is not abnormal. What is abnormal is the ignorant mentality of most people who gay
bash or down the gay community. People should embrace what they do not know. People need to realize that gay people can be just as constructive within our society as heterosexuals. They deserve equal
rights as well as dignity within our communities. If people were more concerned with tolerance as compared to what people do behind closed doors within their own bedrooms, we would not have the
predjudices which do indeed exist. To treat this particular community of people any differently is what truly confines our country within the dark ages. Predjudices should not be acceptable in any terms. Once we accept this reasoning, only then will our country be truly free.
