The entrance to pride fest was filled with protesters yelling and screaming about how we were going to die for our sins, how god was against us. This one guy was asking people, "What it love?" And I walked up to him and I said, "Love is a deep understanding and respect between two people."
He had nothing to say.
And off to the side... I see this woman standing by herself, holding a sign. I casually walk over, assuming that she is with this nasty group of protesters... and lo & behold, this is what I find. I smiled and looked down at the ground for a moment before asking her if I could take her photo. Tears came to my eyes as I walked away.
Also...if humans 'sin' all the time, then seriously, what the hell is wrong with being gay compared to everything else you can "sin" for?
If you're lucky enough to have found love in your life, regardless of what sex that person is, then guess what? Love is love. It's not supposed to discriminate or judge. So good for those who have found that love! A lot of us never do.
This is beyond beautiful, and I agree with you. Just reading her sign makes me cry. It's so sweet, and it's so sad that people around her could easily say it's a sin, while she finds it a blessing.
This deserves all of the love anyone has. I hope she and her son are truly happy and have all kinds of hope. I know this gave me hope for the world.
Thank you so much for posting this.
This is a wonderful photo, thanks for posting it. It's great to see parents supporting their children, regardless of their sexuality.
not every characteristic we are born with is something we should live out.
Well as long as the person with weakness for lust/porn only watches "normal porn" (ie, porn that is NOT child porn, bestiality, or snuff) and does not rape anyone (or intrude on anyone's privacy) , it's their business. As with the person with an aggressive behaviour, that is a different thing entirely as it can cause harm to other people.
My whole thing with homosexuality is it's not hurting anyone and it is occurring between consenting adults hence it's perfectly okay.
While I am not here to convince you that homosexuality is one of these "flawed" tendencies, I don't think you can make the argument that people should live out every tendency they are born with.
PS:I am sorry for my english.My native language is not english : ).
It is MY life, not yours. Why does my happiness have to be compromised because of what other people think?
How would you like it if people said to you "Oh. You are not aloud to love that person."
If you REALLY loved them and wanted to spend the rest of your life with them, and they want to spend the rest of their life with you. Why should you have to care what they think? What should they care who you love?
Stop thinking about what we gays do in bed and think about how boring and normal we are to every other couple out there! Gay people are like everyone else!
I go to sleep at night. I wake up in the morning. I go to work so I can pay my bills and buy food. Sometimes I go to school so I can try to pursue my dreams of being an illustrator. I have 2 cats. I have a mom, a dad, a bother, a sister. I have great friends.
I laugh. I cry. I yell. I hurt. I love. I care.
I am a boring, average, everyday person. I am NO DIFFERENT than everyone else other than the detail that I like girls instead of boys.
I have no control of whom I fall in love with. I did not choose to love girls, just like I didn't choose to have blue eyes, or choose to have freckles, or choose to be born a female.
Why should I be miserable to make people I don't even know happy? What counts in my happiness and the happiness of those I care about.
I have the RIGHT to be with whoever I love, which may happen to be a girl. Just like you have the right to be with whoever YOU love, which may happen to be a guy.
