GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH BEING GAY. NOTHING. YOU KNOW WHAT'S REALLY WRONG? GAY BULLYING AND GAY HATE CRIMES. THOSE ARE WRONG. THOSE ARE ATTACKING PEOPLE. THOSE ARE PUTTING PEOPLE DOWN AND MAKING THEM FEEL BAD ABOUT THEMSELVES. BEING GAY DOES NONE OF THAT. YOU'RE PROBABLY MORE LIKELY TO GO TO HELL FOR GAY BULLYING AND GAY HATE CRIMES THAN ACTUALLY BEING GAY.


(From GBM News.)


Six seven more than seven suicide cases of six seven more than seven boys in six seven more than seven of America in one month.


Read.

Read.

It's Perez Hilton, but read.


This has been going on for ages, and only now are we sitting up and taking notice. It is such a crime to be gay, and that's so wrong; that's really screwed-up. What the hell does someone's sexuality matter to you? Why should you hate them and condemn them and call them names? Why should you judge them? And why in heaven's name do you feel you should punish them?!


The worst kind of suicide is one that was instigated by others. Because you know later that maybe if those stupid morons had kept their mouths shut, maybe that person wouldn't have taken their life. Maybe they would be still around, hating their life but living it nonetheless, waiting and praying for change to come; and change will come, for change is inevitable.


(From The Rubicon.)


Those guys who killed themselves, they range from ages thirteen to eighteen. They were so young, and most importantly, they had a future. If only they had held on for a few more years, till they were out of school, till they were in a better place. If only they had held on to the future, with its promise of change and hope. If only.


"If only, if only," the woodpecker sighs,
"The bark on the tree was as soft as the skies."
-- Holes by Louis Sachar 


Celebrities have spoken out about this. Lovely people. Ellen DeGeneres' video is terribly poignant.

All this anti-gay stuff has got to stop.


To the haters: Get your heads out of your asses and look around -- the gays, lesbians, and transsexuals aren't gun-wielding maniacs; the ones who are wielding guns are pointing them at themselves. They didn't ask to be born this way, just like you didn't ask to be straight or close-minded or stupid. Stop harrassing them. Leave them alone. Their sexuality is none of your business, and it really shouldn't matter to you.


I'm looking through the NOH8 photos right now (somewhat related) and feeling better about the world. It's good to know that there are people like that out there. I wonder what Adam Bouska has to say about all this.

  5. It's really great that you wrote this post. Don't worry, if you're gay, I won't judge you. Haha just kidding hon. I've always been one of those who accepts gay couples. To be honest, I find them oddly cute. Haha call me weird but I do. So does a couple of my friends which is good.. :) Thank you, Hui Jan, for doing this. One post can make a change.

  6. It's a good, inspirational post to put up. :) I asked you in your cbox, and I'll ask again - what is your view on the legality of gay marriages?

    Oh, and I never really had anything against gays. Gay hairdressers/waiters are the nicest, you know. Only found the idea of undergoing a surgery to change you sex a little bit sad, and you know, images of secondary school students having gay sex kinda disturbed me too.

    Thanks, Steph. (: Some gay couples are cute, yes. But some rly aren't, but I feel the same way about some straight couples, anyway. No judging here. (: Thanks!

    Jacie:
    Thankyou. (: I've replied there, but yeah, I think they should be legalised. It's love, and as long as they're not family, I don't see the problem. Ahhh, transsexuals. I feel so bad for them. I know someone online who is, and it sounds like the worst thing ever. He once told me something like, 'Imagine waking up every morning feeling like you were in someone else's body.' That's horrible. ):

    Maddie:
    HAHAHA! The gay pole dancer. :P Haha, thanks, Madeleine. AIYO BOB. He's not gay la. He just...hangs out with girls a lot. (;
