QAQ GOOD LORD I'M SO LATE WITH THIS I didn't wanna wake up my mom ;A;
So this is for Spirit Day, to respect recent teens who have taken their own lives due to lowlifes that bullied them over their sexualities to the point where they thought suicide was the best answer.
It really isn't.
Just because one is homosexual, bisexual, pansexual, transgendered, etc. doesn't mean that they are a bad person. It doesn't make them lower than a heterosexual. Just because it's 'different' or 'it's weird' doesn't make it a bad thing. People are free to love who they want, and all this prejudice against this is really sickening. I had to listen to an awful conversation in my class about gay men. I really wanted to go up to them, smack them in the face, and say, "Not all gay men try to get into your pants. Just like not all straight men try to get into women's pants."
It's just really stupid to see people bash them in fear of getting raped or something. They're just like everyone else. I remember when I was little, there was this high school boy practically everyone avoided. His last name was Wagnon, and guess what everyone called him. Fagnon. It just makes me wanna puke.
So yeah, homosexuals, etc. are normal people. With very human feelings. So think before saying. It's really not hard.
:C I haven't typed that long for anything other than a bio in forever. It's something I strongly believe in though, so I just got really into ;u;
“I may not know you, but I love you. No matter what.”
For anyone who’s killed themselves for just being who they are. I wish I could of hugged them close, and kissed their forehead, and told them “I love you. Please don’t.” I might not know you, and I may never be in your life, but please don’t throw away your life. It’s hard and it’s terrifying, but that’s what makes it so damn beautiful in the end.
They’ll never know what it’s like to fall truly, deeply, madly in love. To look into their lover’s eyes and know that everything is okay. They’ll never have the chance to call their parents and tell them how much they might love them. They’ll never have the chance to make a difference in someone’s life. To make a difference in the world they left behind. They’ll never know.
This is my photography entry for 's 'Not For Sale' Human-Trafficking Awareness project: [link] (I added the text to the photo in PaintShop Pro, as I was told I was allowed to.)
Nobody really knows exactly how many people are sold into slavery each year, but there are estimated to be nearly 30 million people trapped in some kind of slavery today. The Atlantic slave trade, which kidnapped and enslaved Africans between the 1500s and 1800s, brought less than 15 million to the New World, total.
