40 days to go till it’s 2015…
It’s almost 2015…
And I just read the most stupid article ever!
I was doing some research about the neuropsychology of the homosexual brain. But I also found some article about transgenders.
It was so disrespectful, hateful, insanely incorrect, old fashioned, close minded and it really made me think.
It is almost 2015… But we still live in a fuckedup world… How is it possible that people are still this close minded? That they only see what they want to see? How can they only believe what fits in their beliefs and refuse to look any further? How can they quote a book, when they only qoute the parts that fit their beliefs?
I know people think there are worst things in life than homophobia. People are dying because they don’t have clean water and people are dying because of the war. But open your eyes. People are dying because of homophobia too! Teens kill themselves because parents, friends, their community or even strangers don’t accept them. That’s not okay.
I wish I could change the world. So no one would die because of filthy water, hunger, the war, a disease because there aren’t enough doctors or the right meds… I wish I could. But I can’t.
I try my best and donate as much as I can when they are collecting money for any charity. And I really believe those small things help, and I really wish others do the same! But there is not much more I can do about those things. Only hope and pray that this world will change one day.
And I also know that I can’t really change homophobic people. But I think this is something I could at least try. I think this blog gave me an amazing platform to talk about subjects like this. I had a great coming out and I’m really thankful for that. But I also get a lot of messages from people who didn’t had that experience. Who had to deal with homophobia.
And I’m not saying I never had to deal with it. There were plenty of times, I got called names when I was walking with a girl, hand in hand. Or guys who forced themselves on my friend and me when we were hooking up and we almost got arrested because she hit the guy… The police called us filthy lesbians…
But I don’t think you can really change those people.
But you can start by changing yourself. A lot of my friends use the word gay as a bad word. Or say ‘oh that is soooo gay.’ And I know they don’t mean it like that. But it can hurt like hell… There are so many other words to choose from, and you choose gay…
I don’t even know how many times one of my friends called some girl, we know a shemale…
It is hurtful.
So before you say something, think. Before you judge someone, think. Maybe, without even knowing it, you hurt someone close to you.
So start by changing yourself. And by changing yourself, and making yourself better person, you make this world a better and safer place to live in. It takes smalls steps. But we have to start somewhere!
Change the world, by changing yourself!
