I'm taking part in the hop for visibility, awareness and equality which kicks off today, the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia.
What sucks is that we need a day like this. We really ought to be able to get along, celebrate our differences instead of hating each other for them. How boring would it be if we were all the same? How amazing would it be if we celebrated our differences and cared for each other?
I don't tend to get very political in my posts, but sometimes I think it's important to stand up and say, I believe in love. I believe in love no matter your gender, your sexual preference, your color, your race, no matter what. You deserve to be loved, to love, and to be able to celebrate your love. Everyone deserves their happy ending. No, everyone deserves their happy life, not just a happy ending.
If instead of seeing someone different, we could look at each other and see how we're the same, maybe we'd treat each other better. (And by we I mean humanity.) We like to go on about how we're the only beasts who can think, that our intellect makes us so much better than all the other creatures in the world. Let's start using those brains for positivity. Let's use our brains to figure out the best ways love each other, on a micro and macro level. And why are we so concerned about who other people love, about what they look like without their clothes on, about what gender they identify as? What all the other people in the world feel/think/love/identify as doesn't change who you are...
