I hate my state right about now.
They were going to pass an anti-gay-discrimination law, and what happens? A bunch of people want to "Take back" the state and get a bunch of sigs against it, because apparently being gay is WRONG. And the scary thing is? They might be able to do it.
I'm sorry if I piss off anybody, any of my friends is more like it, but this is my journal and I'm going to say how I feel.
It's a bunch of SHIT. No one CHOOSES to be gay. You can't CHANGE that, despite what some wannabe politician may say. You can't be CURED by a psychotherapist. It's not a DISEASE. How can you possibly cure something that isn't wrong or bad? Tell me, because I don't understand.
So go ahead and try to take back our state. Petition in the fucking shopping centers and get the head of the Muslim churches to ORDER his congregants to sign the petition. Why don't you just take away the women's right to vote with it? Let's go back a little further, how about if we buy our clothing through the trade of cows? Or, better yet, LET'S CLUB PEOPLE OVER THE HEAD WHEN WE DON'T LIKE THEM! THAT'LL MAKE IT ALL BETTER!
So someone wants to be gay. Who gives a fuck if it's a choice or NOT? It's not hurting the natural family because straight people outnumber gays by a LOT. Mother's Day WON'T be revoked. So fuck all that bullshit about how schools shouldn't teach tolerance of gays. Because god knows that if you said "we shouldn't teach tolerance of blacks", there'd be an uproar from here to China.
I have one thought for all those anti-gay people out there: When YOU are supposedly "perfect", THEN you start talking. But until then, how about if everyone finds something they don't like about YOU and discriminates against YOU based on that? Huh? How's that sound? Not so good, huh?
It just drives me crazy ... I liked our state so much, and suddenly, HOLA, we're the regressive state. One of many, I'm sure, but still.
And you know? If God says being gay is a sin? Fine. That's just fine. But all I know is I don't want to have anything to do with any god who would say something so decidedly unchangeable is a sin. Fuck that. I'd sooner worship Satan.
~ Jess, the pissed-off one. (Again ... I do apologize if I've offended any of my friends. It was not my intention, I just needed to vent on how I felt.)
