I am not gay. I am not straight. I am human.
As human beings, we have a lot of choices in life. Who we connect with is not one of them. I believe that a person should be able to openly love and commit to another – wholly and completely – regardless of gender. If you choose not to embrace homosexuality because of your own personal or religious beliefs – then that is your choice. People living freely – outside of your own opinions – shouldn’t be “punished” for who they love. The gays are not out to get you, the bisexuals are not confused, and the transsexuals are not trying to be anyone other than the person they are on the inside. They are not trying to change your life – they are just trying to live their own. You have no right to confine or alienate others simply because they live their lives differently than you do.
It’s not about what the bible says or what your local politician thinks. It’s not about practicing tolerance and acceptance. It’s not about embracing and understanding another persons lifestyle. It’s about respecting basic human rights and knowing when to mind your own fucking business. It’s really that simple.
