We're Really Not That Different, Me And You...
I just read a really good article about a girl who went through hell and had to move out of her home and in with her dad and change schools when she told her mom she's bisexual even though she knew how her mother felt about anything other than normal straight couples. It made me really upset to see how she was treated by everyone in her school, her society, even her mom, who carried her inside her for the first nine months of her life, who is supposed to have a special bond with her daughter, who is supposed to love her above anything!
Your sexuality is not a fucking choice, and it really does not matter what you are, as long as you are something. Love is exactly that; love, and it's beautiful no matter what the circumstances are.
I have several gay friends myself, and seeing them happy makes me happy; I don?t care what makes them happy. Don?t misunderstand that, of course I care, but in a good way! Just because someone comes out as homosexual or bisexual, or even transsexual, doesn?t change the person they are. Maybe you knew them before you knew this about them and you like that person? Well, that person hasn?t changed! You just learned one more thing about them. Remember: their sexuality was no different before than now, the only difference is that you now know.
And why do people always assume that everyone?s straight anyways? It?s stupid to assume something about someone when you don?t know. As a person once told me,
"when you assume something, you make an ass out of u and me."
So don?t. Just accept people the way they are, they are just like you, really.
"I laugh, I love, I hope, I try,
"I hurt, I need, I fear, I cry,
"and I know you do the same things too,
"so we?re really not that different, me and you?"

So now, after spending forever trying to get my point across to all of you out there, if anyone is reading it, that is?It?s time to add a video to it. These here are parts of an episode of Grey's Anatomy, where the Christian girl Callie has told her father that she?s lesbian (or possibly bisexual, because she has only dated men in her life before and was even married to one of them), so please watch. The last one is really touching; I think so, at least.
Ok well the second one won't let me post it (sadface!!) but here is the youtube link..It's a really touchy speech, just please watch it....
And to all of you readers out there: take care of the people around you. No matter who they are, or what people they prefer to be with, we are all human beings, we all have feelings and a heart that can break, and words can hurt just as much as sticks and stones if they're the right ones. Take it from someone that knows. Take care. Live. Love. Be Happy.
