Its been a good while since I have taken a stroll down the streets of the one and only Tumblr… but I am glad that I am back..I’m not sure if it will be for good or just for this posting but I am here. I usually keep my mouth shut…. okay, let me not lie on here.. no I don’t.. BUT, I never get to say what I ACTUALLY think. So I decided that I would blog about it.
The media has been blown up here lately with the “coming out” of Jason Collins… and the shit hit the fan as fast as you could say “You’re a sinner” (which was very fast for some “Christians”).. I get that you’re upset that he has professed to be WHO HE IS and that the media is praising him for that, but seriously? Harassing the man for his already stressful situation and process that he had to go through to get to the point to come out. It sickens me to think that this is what the world has come to. Not that there are many and I say MANY gay people coming out and living their lives openly, but that there are so called “Christians” who bombard and criticize the ones who choose to live their own life. I don’t think they can look outside their narrow minds to see that words hurt people and that sometimes taking it overboard will drown your opinion FOREVER. Nobody wants to hear that. Im not saying that I am not a christian… I am… I love God, but I know that my God loves people and says “Come as you are”.. not come straight and sin-free… Its not possible. Im not trying to pursued you to agree with same sex marriage… Frankly, I couldn’t care less if you agreed with me on anything. I just hope that some of you can open up your bigot brains and realize that there is a bigger problem with this.. and its the ones criticizing others for what and who they love. To go as low as saying being gay and sleeping with animals is the same thing is idiotic and I cannot believe that people have actually grown into these types of people. Its not our place to judge. I understand you “Hate the sin, love the sinner”.. thats not possible for heterosexuals to do with homosexuals.. All they see is sin. First they exclude any contact with them.. then exclude anything that had to do with them from their lives… it doesn’t say “Hate the sin, forget the sinner”.. It says LOVE. I guess you could really say this whole thing is about love. Jason Collins decided to quit living a lie and is now getting ridiculed for living the truth. Ive heard someone say “I wish that if people were obviously gay that they would just live that life.”… Ive also heard that same person say “Homosexuality is a sin and they are living an immoral life.” Do you see the absurdity in this? Its 2013, people aren’t gonna agree on everything… does that mean we should beat and bruise the people who say/do/live/act differently as the “norm”? What is the “norm”? I think in todays time there isn’t a normal. Normal is what you make it. Whats normal to me, might be abnormal to you. We’re all different. WE’RE ALL DIFFERENT. Don’t belittle someone because they are not everything you are. I might make people mad with this post, I might lose friendships over this post.. in that case then I guess we weren’t really friends to begin with. Im not hiding my opinions to conform to your “perfect” world. Im not that guy. Im myself. Jason Collins is his own person. He is now living the life he has always wanted to. You don’t have to “struggle” with something to see that its not right to derogate someone repeatedly and repeatedly. I find joy in seeing other people happy and making other people happy. Jason Collins (like MANY MANY MANY others) is finally happy, and this in return makes me happy. So for you to sit there and tell someone they should be this or that because of this or that is false. Don’t tell someone how they should live their life. Be happy. Love people. Love Love. & Love Yourself.
To wrap this all up… there really isn’t a question “to be” gay or “not to be gay” its really none of your damn business.
