re: gay stuff (ranty)

Dear [insert pejorative for discriminated minority here]:

This faggot is here to tell you some truths that have obviously slipped your mind.

How quickly you forget that unjust laws like the ones currently in place all around the world barring homosexuality used to apply for you.

How quickly you demonize millions of people who helped you fight for the right to marry, vote, have families, and be protected under the law when they ask for your help.

How quickly your attitude changes when the social crosshair is no longer trained directly on you.

How quickly and easily you spout hateful words, when you remember all too well what those words felt like when they were directed at you.

How quickly you forget that people's institutionalized and government sanctioned hate of you kept you up at night, wondering if the world would ever accept you for who you are.

You people spouting your hate anywhere you can, spreading the disease of your closed mind in a competition to deny as many people happiness as possible, you are the problem. And it doesn't matter how much you hate me. It doesn't matter what you try to do to grind me down or destroy my sense of self. It doesn't matter how hard you push against me to change who I am or rewrite my destiny.

It doesn't matter. Because I'm better than you. Because at the end of the day, the love that burns inside of me is so much stronger, more valuable and empowering, more sacred, more precious than anything that can ever come from that dark, hateful, festering blackness inside of you.

Fight it, if it'll make you happy, because you've only started crushing us down in the past 20 years. We have centuries of fighting for the right to be who we are. We will you smother you in our experience; we will sweep over your hateful doctrines, religions, and laws with love; we will outlast you in our tenacity to be free.

Fight it, if you think that you actually have what it takes to crush the human spirit of millions of people.

Fight it, if you truly think that you can change everyone's mind and turn each and every loving soul on this planet into one as broken and tainted as yours.

Fight it. I dare you.

Because I know reason and compassion will win. I know we will win.

Tout your right to free speech as much as you want, but hate is hate, regardless of whom it's directed at.

Addendum: Prop8 doesn't even apply to me. I'm not in California. I'm not even in the United States. This is just something I feel very passionately about.

Prop 8 was shut down. Ta-dah! You did it! :P

Proposition 8 was deemed unconstitutional. It is, unfortunately, still in effect, meaning that gays still cannot marry in California. An encouraging step in the right direction, to be sure, but it isn't the massive blow against government sponsored bigotry that everyone thinks it is.

Amazingly well worded, and I can't help but very much agree.
In fact, I was wondering if I could have your permission to use these words... I mean- I think that this message could do a bit of good, but linking someone to an inkbunny journal is not necessarily the best way to spread them... ^^;
Either way- Well spoken, and thank you. :3

If you feel it will be impactful to others, feel free to borrow my words in whole or in part.

I feel compelled to add an addendum to this -- to all of those who seem to think "gay marriage" is wrong, I must be hasty to remind them that the sanctity of marriage is pretty much the driving force behind the withholding of the right of homosexuals to marry.  So, I wonder how many of these anti-gay marriage hacks have been divorced and remarried?  Bottom line, the sanctity of marriage is an effing joke.

That reminds me, did any of these legislators learn anything from the Nazi period?  Persecution is persecution, after all.

Gays, for the most part, aren't interested in the 'sacrament of marriage.' People tend to get uber jaded toward organizations that demonize them for no reason. The church can go fuck itself on a rusty pipe. What most people want is, in fact, the INSTITUTION of marriage. Since, y'know, it's the actual legal process of marriage that matters when you're filing your taxes, not what some magical cloud man thinks about your union.
