Day 22. 3 Days to go before Christmas.
Tea: Candy Cane Crush (Black Tea)
I overheard something terrible at Walmart earlier today. There were two guys who were talking about a gay guy they work with. They said really nasty things that I couldn’t even bear to repeat them. It came as a shock, considering that this place is very inclusive, that there are still bigoted and sexist comments like that.
No matter how people from the LGBTIQ+ community try to make other people understand their side of the story, most people still see the world in black and white. A lot are blinded by their judgment, prejudice, and even faith—something that is reinforced by years and generations of streotypes, cruelty, and superiority complex. You don’t just wake up one day and decide that you’re gay. Neither do you wake from sleep and decide that you’re straight. Being gay is not a decision that you make. It’s a part of life that we can’t avoid. It’s natural and it’s NORMAL. No one needs to constantly explain it. No one needs to constantly talk about it. Why can’t people just live their lives without asking—more like harassing—gays why they’re gay or lesbians why they’re lesbian? Why can’t people just accept the fact that some people are gay and some people are straight?
Just because you’re born with a penis or a vagina, doesn’t mean you need to confine yourself to the rules of society and act like a straight man or woman. And just because you’re born with a penis and you’re straight, doesn’t mean you have to act like a total dick. The world is bad enough with all the negativity and hate that’s surrounding it. We should be spreading love and acceptance.
