Homosexuality and Hypocrites

25 September 2012, 10:50

In recent articles on this forum I found it very interesting how some people defending homosexuality are still homophobic.

How can this be you might ask? Just because someone stands for a right does not mean they actually approve of the act. So many times have I read or heard people saying: “If you are gay that’s fine, as long as you do it in your own domain,” or “I don’t care what you do behind closed doors.” So someone is allowed to be gay just as long you don’t see it?

As humans we all have needs and that longing to be loved. I don’t understand why there should be differentiated between homosexual and heterosexual people in that regard. If you confine homosexuality to ‘their domain,’ you are telling me that two ladies are not allowed to give each other a kiss in a restaurant after dinner to say thank you, or two men can’t walk hand in hand in the mall. Yet, straight couples are allowed to do so?

Doesn’t that boil right back down to homophobia? Oh I don’t want to catch your disease so please keep it away from me.

Recently a lesbian couple walked into my shop holding hands. You could see that they were so in love with each other. It was beautiful. It made me sick, however, to see the looks that they got from some narrow-minded people, yet they did not disturb any peace, or harm anyone. They were just on their merry, gay way (excuse the pun), enjoying life and each other.

As a society that is fighting for tolerance, shouldn’t we allow people to express their love in the way they want? I am not saying allow profanity in public, but how can two people of the same sex holding hands hurt you in any way? You seriously must have very little faith in your upbringing and background if you think seeing something like that will harm you.

 Don’t we all have a right to love?

When you comment, I beg you, please, do not bring religion (or lack thereof) into it. This has to do with a person’s right to hold someone’s hand, nothing else!
