Tom: “Can anyone explain all this gay pride thing. I just don’t get it. Are homosexual people not like other people and they need recognition for being not like other people ?”
Me: Since the Christians took over the West, Homosexuals have been told that they are freaks of nature and abominations. They’ve been murdered, raped, tortured, maimed, burned alive, lynched and otherwise treated as if they are unworthy of breathing.
Other than that, they’re pretty normal fuckers.
Another answer from a “friend:”
“It is just an attempt to counterbalance very low self esteem among gay people due to social rejection and condemnation. Be thankful you don’t need a a straight pride. Very high suicide rates, alcohol &drug addiction and self destructive behaviors in general.”
On a different note, people have said that this Supreme Court decision on Same Sex Marriage was a distraction. I respectfully disagree. I have family directly affected by this.
The State should never have been involved in marriage in the first place.
However…comma…pause for effect….that we live in an imperfect world with an unwieldy, unyielding State that has been driven to madness by Christian orthodoxy into oppressing humans who are different simply because their God says that it should be so (when said God never made such a statement) means that we must fight the State.
Short of full on Civil War, it is steps such as this that relieves the oppressed that will have to do for now.
Until the people get fed up…
Which isn’t going to happen.
Now, if you made this Statement about the Confederate Flag, I would agree.
#LoveWins was not a distraction. This SCOTUS decision directly affected lives.
A positive change was made with this decision.
