In order for LGBT to become “normal,” the majority of the humans on the globe would have to be Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual or Transgender. The reality is that LGBT are a relative minority. I’ve read that LGBT are less than .01 percent of the World’s Human Population. Therefore, LGBT will never be normal.
All of this talk of making LGBT normal is ludicrous. It is ignorant and it is offensive. The statement behind that “mission” is that everyone except LGBT are abnormal. Non-LGBT are not abnormal. We’re just plain people. Some of my fellow “straight” humans do not like or do not accept or cannot tolerate LGBT humans. I do not understand this completely. However, I do understand how these folks can be and are upset when idiot politicians of the Left stand up and makes statements alluding to the “normality” of homosexuality. Usually, I take these idiot statements as a sign that said politician has no grasp of the English language. If English is, indeed, their native language. No minority is a norm.
European or “White” people aren’t a “norm” in the world. Humans of European descent are a relative minority in the world. We can’t make being “White” the norm any more than politicians can make LGBT a norm.
That said, there is a goal that is reachable. I’m not talking about tolerance. Tolerance is a lie. Tolerance is the Great White Lie of the American and European Political Left. To tolerate something or someone is to endure something or to permit something to happen or exist. Tolerance lends to the opinion that LGBT should be permitted to be themselves.
This is no goal. Does a human being endowed with all of the natural rights which humans are supposed to possess inherently need a “by your leave” permission slip from humanity to be themselves and to retain their natural rights? I think not. However, this is what the Political Left would have us believe. I defy this lunacy. I would spit in the eye of the despot who demanded that I seek permission to be who I am. I would hope that my fellow humans who are LGBT would feel the same. If not, ’tis too late. They have already lost themselves as has anyone who feels the need to seek permission to be themselves.
The goal should be acceptance. We should all accept others as they are and not as we would have them be. There are exceptions to this. A mass murderer should not be accepted (OBVIOUSLY). LGBT persons are no more abnormal than I. They simply are not the norm of humanity. They are different. They have different goals and desires. That said, they should not be treated as a dangerous anomaly. They should be treated as fellow humans with all of the natural rights of their fellow humans. That is all. They should be accepted and allowed to forge their own path.
I may or may not agree with homosexuality. However, this is of no consequence. The actions of a homosexual or LGBT human that do not negative affect my natural rights are of no consequence to me. First do no harm. That is the rule by which we should all live and I can think of many, many more humans who do harm first before I would list an LGBT simply because they happen to be an LGBT.
To accept something or someone is to reconcile oneself to that some one or thing. It is to come to an accommodation. It is to concede or admit formally. We should accept our fellow humans as they are. If needs be, we should accommodate them. As long as a fellow human means us no harm and poses no risk, why should we not accept them.
There is no risk posed by an LGBT that is not similarly posed by others. I know many people who pose risks to us who are not LGBT who are accepted with very little argumentation. Politicians are one such animal. If I am to accept Barack Obama as my President, I can see no reason that I should not accept that LGBT are simply my fellow humans and worthy of my respect and acceptance as such.
