I don’t see how a nation so bent on gaining freedoms can continually be so picky in which freedoms are worth having. You only further suppress the ideals our country is supposedly founded upon. It’s like baking cookies. If you eat the dough before it’s baked you’ll get sick (although it can be argued that eating too many cookies has the same effect). You were greedy and didn’t give the dough the time it needed to become what is was supposed to be-a cookie. You placed limits upon the dough’s capabilities. It just wanted to become a cookie, but you didn’t let it. Two men wanted to get married, but you voted no. Now of course I’m not talking about YOU. I’m just speaking in general here. Maybe you don’t agree, that’s fine. I just hope that America realizes it can’t afford to be selective, to be greedy, in how a person chooses to live their life. Otherwise we’ll get sick and believe me, I’m sick at the thought of it.
Whether you agree or not, these are my thoughts.
I could go into some crazy detail here and tell some drawn out story-but I won’t. In short, I’ve always somewhat known and I feel it’s the same for everyone. I only just came out, however, this past year. I started to realize that I couldn’t really deny it or run from it any longer. Within a month of “coming to terms with my sexuality” I had told my entire family and about 15 of my closest friends. I wanted to get that part over with as quick as possible and avoid any prolonged, internal conflict. This can’t be advice for everyone though-make sure you are in a stable position at home or have somewhere to go if you think you’ll be turned away by your parents.
My family is very loving indeed, I couldn’t have asked for a better one. My siblings have gone on as if it was nothing new and life is all the same. My dad will never talk about it, but not out of denial or avoidance-that’s just how he is. He loves me and always will. My mother is the only one struggling, and most likely will for some time. She’s just having trouble getting sterotypes out of her head and in all fairness it goes against everything she’s been raised to know and think. I don’t blame her. At the same time, she just needs to get over it. All that being said, I consider myself lucky. Some share the news and find themselves without a family or a home. I pray for all of them.
MY ASK (THE QUOTES IS HER DISCLAIMER)
”**PLEASE DO NOT GIVE ME HATE FOR MY OPNIONS. THEY ARE MY OPINIONS YOU SHOULD RESPECT THEM**”
That doesn’t make any sense at all, I’m sorry. Just because you have an opinion, doesn’t mean it HAS to be respected. Those two ideas don’t relate in the way I think you want them to, but nice try! Here’s my opinion: Educate yourself in something I like to call “english” and then learn how to properly form a coherent argument. Then remember the lesson I taught you that said “Opinions don’t have to be respected-maybe acknowledged, but respect has nothing to do with it.” Once you’ve got all that you can go on living your seemingly wasteful life, especially for someone of only 15 years of age. You’ve got a lot to learn, yet something tells me you’ll never listen. Such a shame-you look like you have a lot of potential. Wait, what am I talking about-no you don’t. Has anyone ever told you that you look like a lesbian?
Was that a bit much? I think it was just right. I needed to rant a little bit as you can tell, ha.
