… and to be honest, the answer is no; nor do I support women’s rights, racial rights, or religious rights.
I do however believe in human rights, and I find it ridiculous to hear people differentiate between that and the other aforementioned issues. People have been so hung up on defining everyone and labelling everyone, that all they’re doing is cementing the borders between us all. It’s fine to have all of these different communities all being given equal rights, but the segregation and discrimination will only end when these ‘groups’ are simply integrated into the grand consensus.
We’re all people. Where we’re from, what we do, who we are; these issues will never change that fact. We’re all just people.
But then I realised, what really needs to be said?
Anyone who thinks any less of someone because of their sexuality is a fucking moron, and that’s pretty obvious. There’s very little more to add. I needn’t list all the reasons why homophobia is wrong, or even all the reasons why the bible’s condemnation of homosexuality should be ignored, along with its dismissal of women’s rights and its approval of slavery, because if you’re too stupid to support gay rights, then you’re presumably too stupid, and stubborn, to understand the reasons why you should.
Gay people are people, and if any tiny fibre of your being disagrees with that statement, or any second thought you have thinks any more of yourself for being straight, than them for being gay, then you are nothing more than an ignorant, bigoted, pathetically misguided waste of carbon.
