This futile argument is getting us nowhere. You don’t respond to oppression with oppression. This. Is. Not. Society’s. Only. Option.
You can’t talk about being oppressed if you oppress others. End. Of. Story.
And no, THAT statement was not just aimed at heterosexuals. I don’t care what gender you identify as. Hell, I don’t especially identify as a gender myself, I consider myself somewhere inbetween. As part of the LGBT community, most of us have felt oppression. YOU KNOW HOW IT FEELS.
And yet, it is perfectly alright to hate people? To oppress them for being themselves? I’m sorry, but I m hearing two sides fighting over who is right, EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE BOTH USING, AT A FUNDAMENTAL LEVEL, THE SAME ARGUMENT. This makes no sense to me. It is about as futile and annoying as an argument that goes something like this:
Person 1: “I love raisins, they’re the best!”
Person 2: “NO, RAISINS ARE THE BEST.”
Do..do you see the problem with that? Because I certainly do. All of you, homophobic, transphohbic, cisphobic, heterophobic are using the same argument.You are stopping people from being themselves. And frankly, this shouldn’t. Be. Allowed.
It is not alrightto hate someone for being homophobic or transphobic, but then proudly state that you hate heterosexuals or cis people. THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE.
Everyone on this earth is equal. You are not better than anyone, regardless of sexual orientation, colour, or gender identity.
This has gone too far. I love this website, however, it angers me that it is becoming consumed by such hateful, bigoted people. Notice how I don’t specify who is bigoted? This is because both sides in this futile argument are generalising the others.
People have committed suicide because of them being homosexual and transexual.
WE DO NOT WANT more people to commit suicide because they are straight.
For the love of all that is holy on this bloody earth, GROW. THE FUCK. UP.
