I am heterosexual.
There. I've said it. What a relief!
I mean, come on people, is this really necessary in this day and age? Are we still fixated on someone's sexual orientation? Like it's anyone's business or has any relevance?
Groups like this frighten me. Greatly. The concept that gays can't have the same human rights as heteros catapults us right back to the 60's where whites believed blacks weren't worthy of the same human rights they were allowed.
It. Makes. Me. Sick.
But, more than anything, it frightens me. What if my children are gay? Will they be subjected to the same hate and self-righteous beliefs of people who hold their bibles up high and judge others instead of loving people unconditionally as preached in the bible?
You would think, so soon after 9/11, that we would remember how alienating it felt to be hated so much by others and that they would commit such a heinous and hate-filled act. But, being the ADD country we are, we quickly move on to the next headline.....the bailout crisis, the election, and, of course, whether or not someone is gay.
I don't care how someone chooses to vote in 39 days but I do hope that people will be compassionate and think of how their decisions will effect everyone. Gay, straight, black, white, rich, poor, believers and non-believers.
