Ever wonder what is on the other side of Homophobia?
Try to imagine
You are in the second grade,
And tell a girl she is pretty and you "like like" her.
She looks at you funny, says, "My mommy says people like you go to hell."
You cant comprehend,
Isnt this normal?
Sure the other girls have boys they like. But you...You dont understand.
Time passes. You're in the fifth grade. The dance is coming up. You want to ask this really cute girl.
But now you understand...
You are as weird as they say. So, You ask a boy. He takes you, and you're miserable...watching the girl you like being held by a boy.
You dance, when someone whispers in you partner's ear. He pushes you off and yells, "Dyke!" His crew laughs and the girls throw things, punch you, bruise your arms to teach you the sins.
You go to the car...your mom asks what happened, she knows it was probably your step-father again

So what if I'm gay?
So what if I'm bi?
So what if I'm pans?
So what if I'm trans?
So what if I'm a tomboy?
So what if I'm flamboyant?
So what if I'm different?
People aren't all alike,
Not everyone is born straight
We don't all get to choose what things we are
It's not the same as being scene,
Gender and orientation aren't choices
It's just a way of life,
who we are
Ridiculed for things we didn't choose
In the end we are people
Not just animals, we are not creatures
I wouldn't call us monsters
Sinners isn't even accurate
Just call us

Matt and I sat down next to each other at our seats in photo. We didn't actually have desks because the room, even though it was long, was too short width wise to fit 28 desks. The bell rang shortly after we sat our ass's down. I eyeballed my favorite computer down on the dark side of the classroom. There was a huge set-up of brand new computers that took up almost half of the classroom. My computer that I claimed had two screens for extra editing power. Mr. Roberts began his long monologue that he gave every year on the first day of school about his passion for photo with random off topic points in it. The freshies in my photo class looked at him funny and I laughed. My photo teacher was eccentric and sort of egotistical. I never payed much attention to that fact because I've known him for 3 years now. The students that just took the class for the credits hated him. He was like my best friend since we were so passionate about photography and art.

Youre a fag!

Oh My God!
You like the opposite sex!

For loving the same sex

Its just people loving people
Theres no difference
And why does that change everything?
I dont hate you

On Gay Marriage - 2006A lot of people, I've noticed, have stopped pledging alleigance in the morning at school. I'm betting all or most of them do it as some meaningless rebellion, laziness, not feeling like it, and other pointless reasons. I don't pledge because any country I have that much respect for wouldn't stop me from marrying someone I love just because of who they are. Any "freedom worth fighting for" doesn't claim freedom to all mankind with little exceptions they forgot to mention. Any respectable flag doesn't say "all men are created equal" without really meaning it, or "all men have the natural rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, except the ones we don't like as much."On Gay Marriage - 20067 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
What kind of blind country is America, to think the people even have the right to vote who does and doesn't deserve the right to marry the person they love? How is it not obvious that what's happening is wrong? I thought freedom of religious beliefs was something people came here for. It's something people figh
