I want to live in a world where no one has to come out. I want nobody to ever have to go through that emotional and physical torture. I want there to be no reason to come out. Because in this new world, it wouldn't matter! Nobody would care who another person loves, because it's love and none of their business!
I want to live in a world where no one cares. I want apathy, not acceptance. Because, there's no need for acceptance because there's no chance of rejection! There's nothing wrong with it, so rejection and persecution are logically ruled out. I don't want to hear this dialogue ever again "I'm gay." "Good for you!" Good for you? You don't hear "good for you" for being born with hazel eyes or being heterosexual. Honestly, there is no difference, stop perpetuating one! It's just like when a little kid gets hurt, you don't tell the kid they're hurt, because if you did, they would freak out. If we never recognize it as a difference, then there won't be one! Everybody is the same, that's true equality. Don't treat me special because I like boys, I don't want to be different from you, I'm not! How does what I do with the person I love effect your life in any way? I know your relationship does nothing to me. Lady Gaga said it right in Born This Way "It doesn't matter." Preach it Mother Monster!
I want to live in a world free of ignorance. It's the Twenty-first century people. In a world where we can take one person's beating heart and put it into someone else's body and we can somehow capture music and put in our pockets on a mini computer how is it possible that people think that homosexuality is a choice? If a heterosexual didn't choose it, then how the hell could a homosexual? Why the hell would they? Who would concisely make a decision that would make them hated and rejected by the majority of society? How is that even conceivable?
I want to live in a world where I can vote on your life. Who gave you the divine right to say what rights and privileges I get? You're no better than I am, there's no way in hell that I'm okay with you deciding if I can marry the person I love! Are you the magistrate of all affairs concerning love? Could you even define love if you were asked? Neither could I. You don't know what love is, but you know when you feel it. It's not up to you. Stay away from my love life! If I want you in it, I'll let you know.
I want to live in a world where I don't have to lie to be loved. It kills me that I have to lie to my family, the people who are supposed to love unconditionally. They don't know me, how can they love me? They love the mask I put on for them. It's a great mask, don't get me wrong. It's 18 years in the making. I hate living a double life. I don't want to hide anymore! I don't want to be afraid anymore!
I want to live in the world of the future. That's the only hope. We can only look towards tomorrow for the hope that we strive for. We as the youth of the world have to change it. Some will call it "desensitization to sin and debauchery!" Sure, I'm okay with that. Just not the debaucherous sinner part. We need to take the sting and shock out of being homosexual. We are the only hope. Our elders are set in their ways. There may be a few who are accepting, but as a whole they have their opinions and values set in stone. "We must become the change we want to see in the world" - Mohandas Gandhi
