this made me sick to my stomach
every straight person needs to watch this video
this is awful.
at least there’s SOME kind of positive to the situation- there’s a gofundme page for him that reached almost 15 times the goal amount and is still growing higher by the minute
I’m taking a risk posting this because I usually always get hate-mail after I post something like this. But I’m going to do it anyways. Because I hate staying silent.
i’m a super-duper religious conservative republican and this makes me absolutely sick.
if my child were gay, i would reassure them that God loves them and that i love them and should they ever need guidance or love or support, their mother carried them for 9 months and healed their scraped knees and taught them how to punch the bullies back and i am not about to stop carrying them through their hardships now. Because unfortunately, in this world, being straight is a lot easier than being gay. I wish it weren’t that way and I’m not afraid to admit that most of the blame for that is on my political party and radical people who fall into the category that i categorize myself in: “religious conservative republican.” The crazy parents in this video are probably under that category. And it makes me sick. I so desperately wish that the world were different. If one of my children (or more) are gay, I hope we can show the world that it’s possible to be super-duper religious conservative republicans and STILL love your son or daughter, regardless of their sexuality (or political party. I really don’t care what political party they choose). Because love is always the answer.
My parents, thank heavens. have always taught the “live and let live” principle: care about others, have compassion for others, love others, do good to others and serve all mankind. But in the end, live your life and let others live theirs.
I suppose this is also an apology to all those who have been assaulted by those who consider themselves “religious conservative republicans.” Because I’m one of them and I hate what the radical ones do. If they were truly religious, they would know that love is always the answer. Homophobia? puh-lease. When has the “homosexual agenda” ever harmed you?! Get the freak out. All they want to do is live and let live. It’s a real shame some of the “religious conservative republicans” can’t do the same. who the freak CARES what someone is doing with their life?! It’s NOT your life to live. it’s THEIR life to live. freaking LIVE AND LET LIVE.
this might be the most real and horrible thing I’ve watch/listened too in ages (it’s really just a listened too, if you haven’t watched it yet). I don’t want to do the funding project, but I AM giving to the Trevor Project as a result. Anyone who gives support, love, help and guidance to those who need it and apparently are NOT finding it from their family and perhaps friends — that group deserves to thrive and continue to exist.
