In A Perfect World…

Why is being homosexual even an issue anymore?

People really need to focus on the things that truly matter. I’m no Miss Do Good-er myself – but why take the time out of your schedule to get so worked up and object gay marriage (when it really does not affect your life in any way whatsoever), when you could be doing something more beneficial, such as, I dunno, donating to charity?

Something that really irks me is this whole ‘they didn’t choose to be gay’ as a defense. If you feel you were born that way, then that’s your personal realization. If your homosexuality was a choice, then so what? People choose what to eat for breakfast. People choose what to study. People choose which career path they want to pursue. Who cares if someone chose to be homosexual? That’s their right. It doesn’t harm anyone. 

Let’s say, for arguments’ sake, that religion was a factor (which, to me, really shouldn’t be – refer to previous post for my personal relationship with religion). I know there are many homosexuals who are religious. As someone religious yourself, your duty is to pray for them, not to condemn them. Perhaps they will ‘find the right path’, but at the end of the day it’s between them and God. And if God could forgive a prostitute for her sins because she gave water to a dying dog, then wouldn’t God forgive the homosexual individual for his – as long as he did his best to be the best person he could possibly be?

I simply cannot comprehend how so many people just don’t understand the importance of being kind and accepting. In my perfect world, the religion is Love.

    I’m not generally into popular songs, but with songs like ‘Where is the Love?’ by the Black-Eyed Peas and more recently and more relevantly ‘Same Love’ by Macklemore topping charts, I seriously don’t understand how so many people can still be anti-gay. In this day and age, you’d think that people were smart enough to work out that it’s not inherently a bad thing to be different in any way shape or form. Similarly, racism and sexism still exist at least to an extent. If Love was a religion, I would convert!
