Today, I wanted to talk about something that I've never really talked about before, for many reasons.
Partly because it's extremely controversial, and partly because I'm kind of scared to bring it up.
But, this subject is a big part of my life, and it is a big part of who I am, so I felt I need to talk about it.
Some of you may be offended when I bring up the LGBT community, but I can't censor myself anymore, I feel it needs to be talked about.
Currently, I'm the chairperson for my school's GSA, and I'm honestly trying my best, and I love every minute of it. Being around the kind of people the GSA attracts truly gives you the most safest, welcoming feeling I've ever felt.
To those who support the LGBT and their fight for equal rights, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. To those who identify within the LGBT community, I support you, and I love ya. To those who are opposed of the LGBT community and their rights, I love you too, and I don't judge you for that belief, but I wish you could be more open.
Some of my friends and family are gay, bisexual, pansexual, transgendered, and I can't even imagine the kind of oppression they go through. In Canada, it's not AS bad, but it's still not great, there's still many hate crimes against the LGBT, whether subtle or bold.
Some of you are probably curious, I know this may seem like a coming out speech, but it's not.
As of right now, I identify with being straight, but who knows? I mean, I've always only liked or been attracted to guys, but I don't want to put restrictions on love. If I meet a person who I love, and makes me happy, and I could spend the rest of my life with, and that person just so happens to be a woman, or non-binary, I wouldn't want to refuse that just because I've identified myself as forever straight. I just, don't ever want to be afraid of love, you know? But as of yet, I like guys XD
I guess I'm sort of a hippie when it comes down to it, I just love everyone, even the people who spout hate, I think those people need love most.
Anyway, I hope you guys understand and can respect my beliefs on this.
Everyone is welcome to share their own beliefs in the comments, it's not my right to censor anyone, all I ask is that you remain civil and respectful.
I love you all so much, I'll see ya later
