Every time I log into my WordPress account the beautiful colors of the rainbow greet me. And it has a very interesting effect on me.
On one side I feel happy. Because, hey, you know, a rainbow is something really pretty and usually makes you feel happy. But then it also stands for homosexuality. And all the discussion that comes along with it. And that’s where the heavy feeling sets in.
Now you probably wonder why I would feel that way and let me set one thing straight: Some of my best friends are homosexuals and I believe that your sexual preference has nothing to do with your character or who you are as a person.
In fact the discussion here in Australia about if gay marriage should be legalized or not makes me feel sick.
Who are we to have the right to judge about who is allowed to marry whom? Why do we always feel we have the right to decide over someone else’s life? Because this is just what it’s all about. We, the “normal” kind of people think we have the right to decide if homosexuals are allowed to be officially and legally married.
And this is what it’s all about: The legal rights! The law. The law that allows a partner to stay with the person they love until the very end. The right for a partner to make the decision about medical things. This is not about being able to get married in church. And yet people who are against it use religion as reasoning against it. WTF??!!
Some of the most amazing people I’ve met in my life are homosexual. The sexual preference does not make them bad people. It does not make them perverts.
Bad people are bad people. Perverts are perverts. No matter if gay, straight, bi or transexual. It’s a character thing. You tick right or not. And by ticking right I don’t mean what other’s consider normal but what is a good person or not. A child molesting, raping pervert is not a good person. But that person can be a straight person in, what seems to be “normal” relationship.
Love is love. And wanting to be with the person you love should not be limited to gender. In no way whatsoever.
