I know I shouldn't be reading articles like this, but my even-handed nature is inquisitive to know what the "other" side of the gay/straight argument has to say. After all, maybe I'm somehow blinded by my personal situation when I think that about half the people in the world are pretty cool with homosexuality -- or at least half the world in my city. When an article starts out with, "Getting in touch with my feelings the other day, I realized how I loathe homosexuals," you know you're in for it. (I'll give him points for the sarcastic as hell -- and condescending -- opening "feelings" bit, though.) What makes me madder is that some of the stuff these guys say rings true. The support that NAMBLA seemingly gets from gay society sickens me -- and yes, I've given it some thought, taken into consideration the fact that the age of consent here in Canada is 14, and that when I was no older than 13 I felt interested for sex, with someone my age or not. He loses it, though, when he talks about "normal people," as if there is such a thing. And if it involves picket fences, weekend games of catch in the backyard, and family games of Scrabble, I don't buy it. But something about it always gets to me, and in this article it's the closing line:
I don’t blame anyone for being sick. I blame them for telling me that sickness is just another form of health.

Straight up, that's bullshit. That's like me comparing heterosexuality to a sickness. That's like comparing a certain race to a sicknes. A race of people are that race naturally. So are homosexuals. No one becomes a homosexual, it's a natural thing. So telling me that the life I was born to live is a sickness is completely ludicrous. I know you might have doubt because it's a bit of a daunting thing, but please don't ever buy into conservative bullshit like that. You need to know that you're not sick. And the whole thing with NAMBLA is just as disgusting to me. But gay society in general doesn't accept NAMBLA and its views. It pisses me off that NAMBLA gets associated with the gay community because it just tarnishes our image further. Some people are just crazy. I like that in Chris Rock's Bigger and Blacker he says, "what happened to crazy?" He was talking about the Columbine shooting. Everyone tries to blame the actions of an individual on something other than the actual individual. Those kids didn't shoot up the school because they listened to metal or played Doom. They shot up the school because they had a screw loose. Anyway, I kind of got off track there. It's late and I'm tired lol. But overall I'm just trying to instill a sense in you that you're okay. It's okay to be homosexual. It's not a sickness. It's not anything wrong. Don't buy into society's naysaying. They used to say masturbation was sickening and wrong, but today there's a general acceptance of masturbation. Right now homosexuals are society's scapegoats. Just don't buy in.|
