Seven members of the LBGT community, all burned alive, within just the past six weeks.
I have to wonder what year it is we live in?
What are these homophobics yielding lighters so afraid of?
A spell that might turn them gay?
Perhaps one that makes them into decent human beings?
I’ve never heard of a homosexual lighting a straight guy on fire. At least, not in the literal sense.
Because maybe they don’t even want to think about two straight people getting it on? You know, like what the over-the-top-gay-hater insists they’re like with two gay guys? Although, if it were true, why would they have such a spectacular image ready to be played out any time someone dare mention it?
Doesn’t that say more about the “homophobe” than the “homo”?
What is wrong with people in the middle? I understand you’re angry, Detroit, but unless he was driving a foreign car, I don’t just don’t get it.
I grew up on the West coast, in a place where my high school had more homosexual students than caucasian ones. Moving to Kansas, I quickly saw the other side of the spectrum. Marrying and breeding with a Texan, I feared my kids would grow up to be haters, too.
Just yesterday, my son announced at the breakfast table that boys should not kiss boys.
I held my breath, forcing myself not to interject immediately. What would my husband, who flipped out when I painted my son’s toenails along with mine and my daughters, say?
With a sigh, he simply said, “As long as both of the boys want to be kissing each other, it’s okay.”
Why can’t it universally be that easy? Why is the world on a witch hunt? Are they just jealous that some people are able to be more honest with themselves and their societies than they are?
