In this post I want to continue celebrating the many differences that we have with each other, this goes for clothing size, gender, sexuality and what our favourite colour is? My Dad once told me something a long time ago now, and that was it wouldn’t do for us all to be the same, and sometimes people could do with remembering that, especially when they are being bullied or ridiculed by other people. Those people who bully or ridicule us are often jealous that they simply haven’t found out who they are yet because sometimes they are the ones that just follow the crowd and don’t do what they feel like they should be doing.
So let’s talk about sexualities for a minute and how that has changed over the years, way back when, it used to be illegal people couldn’t hold hands with people of the same-sex if they were two men and lesbians were near enough invisible. However, it this day and age you would expect, especially now that equal marriage has come in finally that people would be allowed to be who they are and love who they want to love, but it seems that this isn’t the case, with homophobic abuse on the rise and more and more people getting hurt simply because of who they love on their very doorstep.
Furthermore, in other countries it is worse, in some countries Gay people get thrown off the top of buildings and then just to make sure that they haven’t survived the drop, they are then stoned at the bottom of the building. This then becomes a seen for the public to gather around and watch, so this would then translate as an equal to public humiliation for just loving who they want to love.
My question to you is what is the problem with the difference between people and why should everyone be the same?
