A little late to the party but it really deserves an art tribute. Finally! :D We will march toward equality one step at a time ‪#‎LoveWins‬

When I posted this on my Fb, I receive quite a few comments from bigots who told me they will no longer follow me due to my support of LGBT rights. So I'll just say this now to those on dA who are planning to unwatch me for this post, good riddance! :D

I know it's rather late to comment on this, and likely next to no one will read it, but I thought I might as well put it out there anyhow~
Firstly, yuumei, this is absolutely gorgeous! I'm in love with the colours, and congrats to your country for accepting the rights of the LGBTQI+ community! Here's hoping Australia will follow in its footsteps soon ;w;

I would however like to take the time to note that people cannot use their religion to disagree with issues like this. I am in no way saying you cannot disagree; by all means, you are allowed to dislike the idea of homosexuality. Personally I do not agree with your views in this case but I will respect that that is how you see it and will not argue.
However if the only reason you disagree with homosexuality is because of your religion, more specifically Christianity (I will admit now that I cannot speak for any other religion as I do not know them well enough), then I would suggest you try and find some more evidence to support your reasoning.

Christianity has no biblical passages that explicitly state homosexuality is wrong; please feel free to correct me if I am wrong here, but as far as I'm aware this is the case.
One of the most misread passages is Leviticus 18:22, where it states "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination". Firstly, you must remember that we do not live in the same time as this was written, and that social norms have changed a lot since then. However this passage is continually misconstrued to mean, "Do not have sex with a man as you would with a woman", aka don't be gay; what I believe it means, and has been agreed upon by quite a lot of people is that it means "Do not treat a man as you would a woman", as during this period in time as weak individuals and essentially treated as slaves.

Moreover, what reason would an all-forgiving and loving god have to condemn those who are programmed differently? As has been presumably stated numerous times through this deviation, homosexuality is not a choice. I can choose to dislike tomatoes, but that isn't something that is programmed into me from birth; that is a preference. Homosexuality is not a preference; it is programmed into you just as your hair colour or eye shape is. God's reasoning for not liking homosexuality, much like masturbation, is purely due to a waste of semen - by this logic, sex for pleasure as opposed to reproduction is also a sin. And I feel that most reading this (thankyou for getting this far!) would agree that close to everyone in the world who experiences sexual attraction isn't going to have sex for reproduction every single time. It's just a fact of nature, as some people have pointed out; a biological need.

I would like to also ask, that if you are taking the Bible literally and taking parts of the scripture out of context (eg Leviticus 18:22) to prove your point, why are you not acting upon the rest of the Bible too? Why focus on this section if you're not also going to stone the adulterers to death, for example?

Thanks so much for your time ;;w;;

To be honest, I myself am a Christian and I have never looked into it that much before...well they kinda glazed over it anyway but yeah. After this comment I am going to now actually, so thanks for this (but I am still on the fence when it comes to this).

Not a worry, haha! And you're absolutely allowed to be on the fence, I can understand that it's a touchy subject especially when there are so many people in the world putting it down at face value. Thanks for reading through and leaving a comment! <3

I want to give you an high-five right now :D
everytime i read this phrase "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind:
it is abomination" as a reason against lgtb rights I want to ask them if they're still
virgins/ never had extramarital sex...

so, yeah, totally agree with you

Yeah that one really gets up my nerves too! People just forget to take passages like that out of current context and put into the one of the time it was written y'know but yeah hahahah it's still annoying
