Homophobia is defined as negative attitudes towards gay, lesbian, bisexual and in some cases the transgender population. It’s simple, it is something which no one would want to go through, nor should they go through it. But in this day and age, there are millions and millions of people who are suffering from the implications of homophobia everyday, whilst we live our “
normal” lives, not caring, not thinking. We need to put an end to it.
Britain’s 3.6 million lesbian, gay and bisexual people see themselves confronted by huge barriers of prejudice at every level of society. The horrors of homophobia are seen everywhere and it seems that nothing has been done to prevent it. Shouldn’t we be asking ourselves why there haven’t been major movements in order to change how we view the social minorities? Shouldn’t we be questioning our priorities?
There is nothing wrong with being different. There is nothing wrong with having different opinions for your own lifestyle. There is nothing wrong about two people being in love and wanting to be in a relationship.
It may not strike you as much as it does to the people going through this type of bullying, but for others it is worse than death itself. To live a happy life with your own choices is what any human being on this planet desires, it’s what they live for, it’s what we live for.
Love, affection, trust is what is lacking in our world. To be able to walk hand in hand with someone who is the same sex as you, without any external issues evolving, seems almost too impossible to even imagine. We need love in our planet to feel as if we are all one, as if this world has no end to it or spaces between it. We need affection in our planet to know what it’s like to be appreciated. And we need trust in our planet to simply rely on each other when it comes to the tough times we have to go through. That’s life.
But life is not to hate people around you because of who they are. We do not live to harm people. We weren’t given life with the sole purpose to hurt others around us.
I want to be able to live in a world where nobody has to be judged for what kind of person they are. I want to know that there is still hope for peace in our world. I want to wake up and find out that we have put an end to any sort of discrimination. I want to change the world. I don’t want to dream about it. I want to put an end to it.
