"Ew!" you will yell and wrinkle your nose every time you see a gay person. You will look at me like you expect me to agree with you. I don't.
"There is nothing wrong with gay people. They're just like you and me. You're so homophobic," I say to you. I hate that you are like this. I know you are my best friend but if you know if you say things like that, I feel embarrassed to be seen with you.
"I'm not homophobic. I just find gay people disgusting! " You say coldly.
"Thinking that they are disgusting is homophobic."
"So what if I AM homophobic? Why does it matter if I AM?" you question me.
I shrug my shoulders. I know that if I say something wrong, you will get mad at me and yell. I've put up with a lot from you, but not this time.

"Exactly. Why do you even care anyways? The things that I say don't apply to you anyways, do they?" You look at me strangely.
I care because it's hurtful. Not to me, but to other people. Some of my friends happen to be gay. They cheer me up and make me laugh like GOOD friends should do. They don't say I'm an idiot just because I have opinions that they don't necessarily agree with.

Too often, we hear on the news that a person has committed suicide. Many of those people are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. They are bullied for who they like or what gender they are. Bullied… by people like you. You can think that gay people are disgusting (which they aren't) if you want to, but you don't have to say things out loud against them. Think of how they must feel…

"No. I'm not gay so they don't apply to me, but still, I don't think it's okay for you to call them disgusting and point at them and say there is something wrong with them."
"Whatever. I'm not changing my opinions for you."
I look down and mess with my necklace. I guess I lost the argument.

I know that I can't really change you. You are close-minded. A bigot. A homophobe. But the next time you wrinkle your little nose at them, or say "You stupid fag", or say "That's so gay" like it's a bad thing to be gay, just think of how you are making other people feel.


I need new friends.
Just a rant.

Yes, this ACTUALLY happened today.

I'm not gay or bi or transgendered or anything, but I just don't like Lauren's attitude. Even if you don't agree with being gay, you don't have to point at them and make it completely obvious that you hate them. It's rude and really offensive to them.

If you don't like a group of people (for whatever reason,) first you should probably try to educate yourself so that you can understand them and (whatever it is about them that you don't like.) If you aren't going to do that, at the very least, just keep your opinions to yourself because one of these days someone is going to get mad who will actually fight you or something.. and that's not good...

I support gay rights, marriage, people. All of that. I don't think that there is anything wrong with LGBT people.

***********************************************
ALSO, don't mind my grammar and punctuation in this, please. I typed this quickly because I was irritated.
I also had it in paragraphs and stuff. Once I uploaded the text, it ruined all of the spacing and organizing that I did on MS word... :(

***********************************************
UPDATE : [May 22, 2011]
Thanks for all of the support guys. (:
I never expected this many people to view/fave/comment on it.
So thanks so much for making this "popular."
For people who haven't commented, feel free to. I enjoy feedback. (:
Again, thanks SOOO much. Love you guys. :heart: :star: :hug:
***********************************************
Edit again: I tried to fix this up a bit... Didn't work very well..

A fun fact for those who use the religious excuse to gang up on homosexuals: The Church condemns those who would humiliate and poke fun at homosexuals. They don't support homosexuality but they recognize that homosexuals are, ultimately, still people and should still be treated with the respect all people should be given.

That's my two cents.

My best friend is also Bi, and she is a sister from another mister to me.
I hate people how bash her.
We try to hold our heads high and ignore it.
But when it continues, I lecture them.
Not
"Your so rude omg"
but I give facts, evidence, and reasoning.
I have actually made some people stop and hold their tongue, and even one change his views.
I feel like I did something good

I will be your friend.
It is not because I like yaoi or shounen-ai, nor it is because I'm perverted.
I will be your friend because I admire how you stood up for your own opinion and didn't back down even if your reputation was hanging by a threat.
I want to be like you.
