Homophobia makes no sense! (Part one)


 “Marriage should be between a man and a woman, because it has always been this way.”

Marriage ‘should’ be between two adults who love each other. It shouldn’t matter if they are two men or two women. Marriage is a manmade concept and not created by god. Secondly, there have been gay marriages prior to the spread of Christianity. It was more of a taboo topic and people were killed because of it, especially around the time Christians began enforcing their beliefs onto other people. Some can say this was one of the many reasons the Roman Empire fell. It may have been the norm then but it surely isn’t the new norm now, the LGBT Community has the right to marry so get over it.

 

“Homosexuality is a choice.”

It is certainly not a choice! Please stop with this lie about everyone being born heterosexual. You are born with your sexual orientation and it has been proven scientifically, you don’t choose the gender you are attracted to. It’s becoming really sad that homophobic assholes are trying so hard to invalidate someone’s life because it doesn’t fit within the guidelines of their religion. It would make more sense if you were to attack rapist, murderers and pedophiles that are actually harmful to society. Two consenting adults in a loving relationship not harming anyone shouldn’t be on your list of attack, just saying.

 

“Homosexuality is condemned in the Bible.”

We have this wonderful thing called freedom of and freedom from religion. You can have your religion, practice it day and night. You can wear it on your sleeve and scream it from the rooftops. It becomes a problem when you try to enforce it onto other people. The government realized that it can’t ban gay marriage because it was pandering to an ideology that it should’ve never been supporting in the first place. It’s understandable that your little world is being shaken and the government isn’t putting your religion on a pedestal, but can we please get over these same stupid arguments!

 

“Homosexuality is wrong because it is unnatural.”

There are at least 450 species in the animal world that have been recorded having same-sex partners. It also has been proven that you don’t choose what gender you are attracted to, with that said it is perfectly natural to be gay. Just because your religious text says it’s not doesn’t validate anything in your argument. It just makes you look even more stupid.

 

“Gay marriage is wrong because homosexuals do not procreate.”

Again, you are using the bible to justify your argument and even so that isn’t a good one either. There are couples who are heterosexual that can’t produce children. What if an elderly couple were to marry? You are shaming more than just the LGBT Community in this argument. You are shaming anyone who can’t produce children. Everyone may not want children either! What is so wrong about two adults being in a loving relationship? What is so wrong with that?
