So, this whole thing started out on a writing site called Quotve.com. It’s a pretty cool writing site (and yes, MadHatter6993 is indeed me) So, anyways, I moved from Quizilla.com to write on this site (since you can basically write whatever and you don’t have to worry about it being reported) and I was just going through some forms and a certain one caught my eye. “Should Same Sex Marrage Be Legal, or Illeagel” I figured since I had nothing better to do, I would click on it. That was the wrong move on my part. As I continued to read through some random comments, I noticed that most people said “Yes” to it being Legalized. It made me smile.
I suppose that I should go ahead and say right now that no, I am no gay/bisexual, however, I am aromantic (meaning that I am attracted to both genders, but not really in a sexual meaning, I just think girls a pretty :3) So, as I am reading through these comments, I see people starting to hide behind religion. Not that I have anything against religious people (it’s their right and they can do as they please) but to hide behind it to say that two people who are in love cannot marry each other; I guess I just lost it.
There is FAR much more to marriage than the gender. Marriage is wanting to spend the rest of your life with that person because you LOVE them, and nobody else. Just think of it this way. Let’s say you’re straight, and you love someone deeply and with all your heart, but you’re not allowed to marry them. Why? Maybe it’s because of the color of their skin, or where they come from, what they own, how much they make, what their family does. All of these things are actual historical events that have happened.
Back in the day, if you didn’t own a certain amount of land or bring in enough cash flow that the father thought was enough to support their child, you couldn’t marry.
Back in the day, if your family didn’t like what your lover’s family did such as what they did for a job or what they owned, you couldn’t marry.
Back in the day, if you weren’t white and you were in love with someone who was, you couldn’t marry them.
Sounds shitty right? Well, what is the difference between all of that and wanting to marry someone of the same gender? We are all human, there is no difference. And as I said before, I don’t know how it works in other countries, but here in America we run by Laws and not religion. If you’re so afraid of change, then look the other way while it happens. Just because you don’t understand something doesn’t mean that you need to bash it and hurt others in the process.
"Turn the other cheek" or as Jesus once said "All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!”
You have no room to speak. Nobody is perfect. This is how life is. “You can either run from it, or run toward it.” But, at the end of the day, it’s not your life, it’s someone else.
And love will always find a way to conquer.
