So? February 16, 2010

I, for one, do not have a problem with homosexuals, transgenders, or whatever else people claim they are. I do think it is unmoral to be homosexual, however, I ain’t the one that’s homosexual so why should it bother me any? I don’t care if they get married or do anything that other people would consider “wrong.” Its their only shot at life and if they want to live it like this and be happy why stop their pursuit of happiness? I also have a lot of homosexual friends and one transgender friend and they are really cool people. There ain’t nothing wrong with any of them. One of the is Catholic which is a little odd but is his choice, not the church’s choice. One of my gay friends isn’t flamboyantly gay like he is supposed to be according to the stereotypes for gay men. “We are all aware of the stereotypes surrounding gender: Women are better communicators, men are stronger; men like powertools, women like chick flicks” (Silverman and Rader, 429). One of my gay friends is into chick flicks and isn’t very strong, but I feel he is confused about what to do as a gay man so he tries to follow the stereotype. Another gay friend is pretty strong (stronger than me) and doesn’t like power tools, but also don’t really like chick flicks. Just because he is stronger than me, does that make me gay? In conclusion, I accept all my homosexual friends for what they are, people, just like the rest of us.

  1. I agree with you. I don’t care who is gay. I’m not and that’s all that matters to me. I don’t care what they do or who they do it with. As long as the person is happy, i have no reason to be against them.

  3. This was really interesting, Jeffrey. I like the fact that you bring up the idea that gay people have stereotypes to live up to, too. We’ll talk about that. I also find the fact that you think homosexuality is immoral, but none of your business since it isn’t you, to be really interesting as well. Nice job.
