Holy shit why have I never written about my feeling towards gay rights?
Today a friend posted an article about 2 gay penguins being given a chick to raise, which is nice and all, but my initial reaction was “why the hell does everyone think that this is so adorable but when it comes to the rights of a human gay couple everyone has to put their judgemental 2c in?” That’s when I thought, “hey! I can write about it!”
I don’t think I’ll ever get over why people are still so unaccepting of extending the umbrella of human laws to shelter people that aren’t in a hetero relationship. Gay people have so much to offer the world; for one, have you honestly ever met a thick gay person? I don’t mean to stereotype, but none of the gay people I have ever met are stupid. As many of you know, I believe that this world needs to stop breeding. The catch here is that intelligent people are the ones saying “I choose to remain childless because we don’t need any more people on the planet and I want to enjoy my life” … whereas the idiots just keep breeding more and more children just like themselves. Many of these people are the same jerks that call homosexual people “gay cunts” (not affectionately) and disown their own children if they happen to be gay. I believe the scientific terms for these folk is “rednecks”. I don’t want to get off topic here though, I’m just letting my fingers do the typing.
So … what is actually wrong with gay people?
Are they bad because the Bible states that it is wrong for a man to lie down with another man (Leviticus)? Leviticus would also condemn me then, due to my tattoos. Leviticus would also condemn the All Blacks then, for “playing with the skin of a pig”. Funny how one never hears those rednecks whingeing about their beloved AFL team defying Leviticus by playing with a pigskin, or shunning their mate Gazza for his sweet new tribal tattoo.
I watched this video called “It’s Time” recently, and the Youtube comments under it are so ridiculous. The original poster tried in vain to get someone to explain to him how it possibly hurts them if the man down the street legally marries another man. Not one person has been able to give a satisfactory answer, although there are plenty of confederates spouting off about how “penis goes with vagina” and how “the Bible says its wrong” (argument shot down already, see above). I think that hiding behind Christian ideal is pretty weak, considering that I have some great Christian friends that would love me just the same if I “lezzed out”, because they know that there is more to a person’s heart than just their sexual orientation. As for “penis goes with vagina”, would that guy not agree that mouth goes nicely with penis, therefore allowing the idea that mouth also goes nicely with vagina (not that his girlfriend would know cos he sounds like the type of dick that doesn’t do that) .. which stands to reason that penis and vagina are not mutually exclusive. Oh, well – life must be hard when hand and penis are your holiest of matrimonies.
Another comment on this Youtube video is “You forgot about drugs and sex in club toilets” … well, I am in a hetero relationship and not only do I take drugs occasionally, I have also had sex in club toilets (sorry to peoples parent reading this, but I bet you have too, you saucy minxes). So we can’t assume that such awful behaviour is exclusive to gay people! Grrrrrr I can’t believe how thick people are. I believe that people use the slippery-slope argument “oh, well if we allow gay people to marry then how soon before incest and bestiality are legal?” That’s ridiculous. That’s like saying, “well, if we legalise marijuana, how long before heroin will come with a Happy Meal?”
Maybe it doesn’t bother as many people, but I was raised in a household where our parents loved us no matter what – once when I was about 13 I asked Mum, “what would you do if I was lesbian?” and she replied “I would support you and love you just as much as I ever have”. When one of my close friends “came out” to my Mum, my Mum gave her a delightful novel about two teenage girls that fell in love. At the time we pissed ourselves about it, but in retrospect that was pretty fucking cool. Go Mum! In Dads eyes, I would still be his girl and he would probably just poke in a cheeky joke here and there. My brother would be much the same – he definitely loves his lesbian jokes and aforementioned friend bears the brunt of many of them!! Yes, I realise that I am extremely lucky – because I know that many friends have not been as lucky with accepting families. Maybe that’s why I get so angry – because I can’t understand why people can’t adopt the same kind of acceptance as the people in my life.
I firmly believe that you fall in love with a person, not a gender. The majority of people just happen to be attracted to a gender’s physical traits first which is very natural, but I have met many girls in the past that I could definitely have had a wicked relationship with (to accompany my tattoos and rugby ball for the trifecta) – even though I love everything about my boyfriend and other boyfriends I have had in the past.
What is the issue? Why do people oppose homosexuality so much, anyway? Jealousy, perhaps? If you read that article, perhaps the people that are the most “homophobic” are so because they are driven by anger that they are unable to fulfil their desires – due to fear of non-supportive families, maybe? Its a damn shame if some homophobes are so angry towards the gay community because of the restraints they have on their own feelings. Its a case of the kid that has been abused, and becomes an abusive father himself, in a way. All it takes is for society to have the balls to let these homophobes be who they want to be. As for the gay people that are already out of the closet, no matter how hard you might sometimes have it, you are still so much luckier than those who cannot even bring themselves to be honest about their sexuality, and in turn lose the chance to have happy relationships.
Anyway, it’s not like me writing about it is going to change anything (just like me writing about Gumtree bogans didn’t stop them posting their shitty backyard tattoo ads on Gumtree) – I just felt like writing about my feelings about this subject that is important to me.
