As I sit and watch Sense8 on Netflix, one of the characters is an actor who is homosexual, but is afraid to reveal himself to the public. He was worried about how his image and career would change if he told the world. It not only makes me mad but also causes confusion in my brain as to why people care if someone is gay. Love is the greatest thing in the universe and across the multiverse. I believe love is what connects us all. So who a person chooses to love, have sex with, or spend their lives with should not matter to anyone. In 2017 if someone says that they are gay it should not be a shock to anyone. It really doesn’t fucking matter. Love who you want to love. Kiss who you want to kiss. Be happy with the person that makes you feel great. I have two kids and I could care less if they deciding to date the same sex. I am no one to determine what’s right or wrong. But what I can do is show empathy, support them, and try to understand.
I honestly don’t even want to use the term ‘gay’ anymore. Why do we have so many words that are used to classify and label individuals? I embrace the day that people no longer ask if someone is gay or not. But to be honest, I am one of those people that asks that question. Thus I need to make a change in myself first before I can see a change in the world. A man and another man kissing should be no different than a man and a woman kissing. Let go of the past and any ideologies that support hate and separation. We are in the 21st century and we are still discussing race and homosexuality. What the fuck is wrong with all of us?
