Sexuality through a definition is," the sexual habits and desires of a person [source]." From what I read, "...of a person," meaning our individual, personal desires. For some reason people find it in their interest to judge the sexual preference of others. I understand that being homosexual is not acceptable to everyone, but I do not understand why anyone should care who other people sleep with. If you haven't realized yet, your sexuality does not define you. Employers are not going to hire you because of your sexuality but based on your qualifications, your work ethic, your determination, your passion, your personality. We're living in the real world, you have the credentials or you don't.
What Heterosexuals are Saying
-The heterosexual people that were asked for this particular post had three main beliefs: One, they disagree with homosexuality because they are religious and view sexuality as sinful behavior two, homosexuals life their life the way they do just for attention and lastly, they feel that homosexuals are hypocrites as they "bully" those who express opposition to homosexuality.
What Homosexuals are Saying
-The homosexual people that were asked for this particular post had two beliefs: One, they (homosexuals) deserve equal rights because their human too. Two, they feel that heterosexuals are so stuck in their own personal beliefs that they miss great opportunities to experience diversity. One participant said, "If a straight person hear that I'm gay, they assume that I'm flamboyant. That's not true for all gay people. I'm masculine, like sports and all."
It's not my position to say who's right and who's right. However, I respect both sides' feelings on the sensitive topic. This post was not about creating a debate, more so a reality check to the fact that we as a society are judgmental towards each other. Whether it's regarding sexuality, race or gender, most of us live by stereotyped beliefs. It's time to grow from those stereotypes and see the world in black and white.
After reading both side beliefs and comments, all mankind deserve equal rights. If we all mind our own business, homosexuality wouldn't even be considered an issue--political or socially. In my opinion, we all are guilty of being judgmental in some way. The irony of that is neither you, they, or I is perfect. Like I always say, imperfection is what makes us beautiful. If a person does not have one flaw about them, I will not date them. Why? I realized that perfection comes with many forms of ugliness. After this post, take it upon yourself to appreciate diversity, experience it, and learn about lifestyles and cultures that you don't know much about or understand. Leave your beliefs at the door for once, so you can see the world without your judgment.
