Homophobia makes no sense. What about someone else's love life can affect you enough for you to get the right to discriminate them or even bully them? What about someone else's love life can affect you enough for you to get the right to tell them they're disgusting or even tell them that their presence gives you a sick feeling in your stomach? What about someone else's love life can affect you enough for you to get the right to hurt them or talk badly about them behind their backs? Homophobia makes no sense at all.
First of all, homosexuality is normal and natural. There's nothing wrong with being in love with a person of the same sex as you. How could it possibly even be wrong? Give us one good enough reason and then we'll believe you, but we're a hundred percent sure you can't come up with an argument good enough for us to change our mind. Because homosexuality is normal and natural and there's nothing wrong at all with being attracted or in love with a person of the same sex as you.
Second of all, homosexuality is not a choice. Just like you can't decide whether to like or not like spaghetti or olives, those people that you have such a hard time coping with can't decide whether to fall in love or not fall in love with a person of the same sex as them. It's not like they're born and out of nowhere they just decide to become gay. They're born this way. They can't do anything about it. Because trust us, living in a world like this where homophobia is everywhere and nowhere, no one would choose to be homosexual if it would be a choice. If fitting into all these ideals would be a choice, wouldn't everyone choose to?
Why do we even put our time and energy in something as stupid as label what kind of love that's normal and not? Love is amazing, love brings happiness to people's lives and it shouldn't ever have to matter which sexes that's involved. No matter what, love is amazing. Why don't we put our time and energy in something much more important – like we starting to appreciate love, no matter if the relationship involves two people of the same sex or two people with the opposite sex?
Everyone should have the same rights. Everyone. Every human being in this world. Whether we're talking about two men living together or loving each other, a woman who's moved here from Africa, a man who's just got his right leg amputated... Everyone should have the same rights. And that includes homosexuals. Who we love doesn't define who we are. The personality of a homosexual person doesn't automatically become bad just because they're attracted to people of the same sex as them. By the way, isn't that pretty obvious? Do you even hear how stupid it sounds to believe that someone's personality automatically become bad just because of them being homosexual?
In Singapore, a large amount of the population is accepting about people being homosexual. The problem is the laws, which are still there. Although the population is accepting, there are still laws which are discriminating and pushing the homosexual part of Singapore's population down. There are for example a law that's keeping homosexuals from marrying the love of their lives and also a law that's making it impossible for homosexuals to adopt children. Does it even really matter if the population is accepting as long as the laws are there to discriminate? The laws needs to be removed for the development to go forward. We will never reach a world with acceptance and normalization if there are laws which are still discriminating, long after many people has already come to realization.
Homosexuality is love, just like any other kind of love. And it's both natural and normal and nothing wrong about it. We need to start acting like this and fight for all the discriminating laws to be removed.
We want all the people in the world to feel safe and loved for who they are, without them feeling like they need to change themselves to be accepted. Homophobia makes no sense.
