Hey guess what, so today I told my mom that one of my close friends is homosexual. I didn’t even realize before that she was homophobic. I’m not even mad, I yelled and argued a little bit, but we were in public. I’m not mad, and I don’t hate her one bit. Never have ever had an ounce of hate for any of my family members, no matter how much I got mad at them. Never with hate them. I love them all, more than anything, and would trade my life for their’s without even having to think about it if I had too. I’m just extremely disappointing. I respect that you believe that, but of course I need your reasoning. Your damn cousin in law is gay, and your reasoning is unexceptionable. How can you expect me not to get worked up about this? Several people I care about are homosexual, and I thought you were a reasonable person. Your my mother, and the fact of how selfish you were acting is horrible. What if I were homosexual? Would you get mad at me, and blame me like you did with my uncle today?
You can’t say that just because they’re in bad situations, that they chose to my homosexual. NO ONE just chooses to be homosexual.
You can’t even listen to me because I’m your daughter? Because I’m a child? Because I’m 13?
I’ve told you about my friends, how much they’ve been through, and you understood, that I understood them. How mature I was and knew what the hell I was saying.
Did you chose to be straight? You didn’t chose your own sexuality, so what makes you think a homosexual did?
I am not exaggerating when I say one of my friends (there are plenty like this, I’m just choosing a specific friend) has been through more than you have in your entire life. They’re 12. She’s straight.
How DARE you blame my uncle for being gay, and how DARE you its wrong to be homosexual? How DARE you criticize my friends, who have been through so much more-and trust me, I know what you’ve been through-than you have ALONE that are homosexual.
Homosexuals are constantly judged like this and I think its DISGUSTING that you blame them. Judge them and act like they’re a completely different species. How dare you? They love who they love and what makes you think you have the right to say its wrong or right to be a certain way.
Its not straight for one day and then all of a sudden BAM your homosexual. I never said that, and yet you put words in my mouth saying I did. NO, if your homosexual, then you’ve ALWAYS been that way, you’ve ALWAYS felt that way, since the first time you found someone attractive. You just don’t always realize its who you are at the start.
I still think that being a homophobic, is basically being sexist. I respect your opinion, but you’d have to respect mine as well when I say that its still wrong to be homophobic.
Its the same thing, being sexist and homophobic because your judging them based on their gender. SO WHAT, a girl can like a girl, a boy can like a boy what’s the difference when its a boy and girl? We’re all equal, and if you’re straight than that’s fine. As far as I know, I am too.
My friend is living their own personal hell, and holding up the whole world on their shoulders, and guess what, THEY’RE STRAIGHT. I dare you, to tell me whether or not you think its wrong or right to be against homosexuals, and to give me your reasons if you think its wrong.
Go ahead, throw whatever you want at me, I don’t really give a damn.
Mom, if you’re reading this, then don’t be afraid to talk to me about it, honestly, I’d be more than happy too.
