…are not the enemy.
Came across this little tidbit today on Yahoo news.
About how totally stupid these people are. Fact is, they’re trying to change the constitution. That’s been in effect since 1994. Quite a while to only now start griping about it. Suppose they have to – would not do to look like pansies when their counterparts in the rest of Africa is so dead set against gay people. Most likely just another political ploy
Bottom line is, gay people don’t harm anybody. They’re always ready with a joke, seems to have immaculate taste in clothing and decor – which is why I get my son to do any kind of decoration in my house 😉 He does it most effortlessly!
Yes, that’s a generalisation, and lots of people are offended by gays just because they don’t lie about who and what they are.
But, once you look past their sexual orientation, they’re just people, like we all are. I mean, if you’re going to condemn people on what they do behind closed doors, we should start on the foot and shoe and leather and whip people too…
I think a gay man is a better friend to a female than other females are.
Maybe I’m the only one that feels like that, but I’ve never really cottoned on to the whole female bonding thing, a la “Sex in the City”
Can’t imagine many things worse than sitting in a bar or a restaurant somewhere, chewing the fat with a bunch of other women, and all they really do is gossip about all and sundry. Well, maybe having root canal treatment, but that’s about it!
Going shopping? Don’t think so. My idea of shopping is the hardware store, not shoes.
Females only seem to play pool with their boyfriends – not an activity they share with other females 😉
That being said.
As long as there have been people, there have been gay people.
People that had to hide who and what they are against a society that does not tolerate anything outside the norm.
I personally know people that got married, had children, and then their whole life fell apart – because they could no longer live a lie.
Fact is, I would prefer to have openly gay people, living their lives as best they can, rather than a whole lot of unhappy people, resenting the situations they’ve been forced into by society.
It seems the Western society is slightly more lenient regarding this.
African society on the other hand – not so much.
Why is that I wonder?
What makes this person feel that it’s his right to condemn another person? Why do they feel it’s their right to condemn others out of hand?
Suppose the same could be said for everything else that society condemn.
And sure, the line must be drawn somewhere. It’s all slightly insidious, not so?
Because the same condemnation goes for Islam. And illigal immigrants. And stupid politicians.
Kind of the fact that, if you’re going to let the one thing slide, you have to let everything slide.
I’m probably quite hypocritical in saying that I won’t condemn gay people, because I have a gay son. And the last thing I want for him is to be ridiculed and made fun of, condemned just because he’s gay.
But I have no affiliation with Islam, and I’m not an illigal immigrant – well, not yet anyway – we’ll see how long it takes my government to declare me just that!! And I’m not a stupid politician either 😉
There are more reason to believe that the last factions mentioned cause more harm to many sosieties, especially their own, than gay people do.
So, maybe the line should be drawn on the amount of harm caused before condemnation should happen.
Not something I’m able to correct. Or even make an educated guess about.
All just my personal opinion…
