So this happened last night. You can say I’m straight. Yet, I support the LGBT community.
I had a fever last night so I called my parents (I’m studying abroad). They were with my sisters and when one of them was talking to me, she asked, “Why are you talking about gay people?”
I retorted, “So, you actually don’t care that if I have dengue fever right now?”
She was scared and handed the phone back to my mom. But it wasn’t over—she texted me, asking the same thing.
I left the text for about an hour and decided to reply “I support them, is it wrong?”
You know what, she responded “Yes, of course.” and THAT IS TOTALLY WRONG!
I became so angry that I wanted to scold her, but it’d make me look weak. I decided to continue the conversation by doing an ‘interrogation’.
I didn’t read her texts because they all were about “Gay people are cursed” and things like that.
And then I said this
“Being a LGBT community supporter does not necessarily mean I’m gay. You are exposing yourself to the world that you have an extremely narrow mind and you are way too naïve to be a mother.
“Or may I say… to have a selfless and kind brother who is open-minded, outgoing and uncritical.”
I sent those texts to my other sister as well.
I won. I won the argument while looking calm. I was proud, not regretful of what I had said.
I am born in a wrong country. I am born with a wrong culture. I am born in a family with wrong mindset. But that doesn’t mean I can’t stand up for gay people! No matter what, whether I’m dying or being abused, I will not stop supporting the LGBT community. #LoveWins
