I’m so happy that DOMA is overruled and that gay people are allowed to get married. I don’t know if my facts are right, but I’m just so happy that there is a breakthrough in gay rights.
I live in a more “conservative” country. I guess you can say that. When I was younger, the word “gay” and “lesbian” were teases or insults. I never thought that were actually gay and lesbian people in the world. But after I grew more mature, and I started watching Glee, I realised that there was a whole new world in front of me.
And I realised I was okay with people being gay. I didn’t care if they kiss or had public displays of affection. It didn’t disgust me. In fact, I thought it was sweet.
I’m glad I did. I’m glad that I was open-minded and not discriminative against a unique group of people who aren’t doing anything else either than loving someone they love.
My mom isn’t as open-minded as me. I thought she was, when we watched Glee together and she didn’t react negatively or violently. But I knew she was open to the fact because one day, she told me that she didn’t send me to a girls’ school for me to turn out lesbian. When I heard that, I was really upset. Who cares if I’m a lesbian? I should be allowed to be whoever I am!
Then I realised, if I should be allowed to be whoever I am, then she should be allowed to have whatever opinions she have. So I let it go, and from then I never mind what negative things people might say about homosexuality. Sure, I get upset when I see homophobic slurs, but people are entitled to their own opinions.
Love is love. That’s my opinion. People can love whoever they want. I support the LGBT community.
Thoughts on Graceland:
On a side note, I watched the latest episode of Graceland and I’m just love this episode so much. I love every episode, period. I wanted to create a Tumblr again so that I can reblog all those beautiful gifs (and Les Mis and Avengers), but I hesitated. Anyway, I love how realistic it is. That even though Mike is professional and graduated with highest honours, he’s still green. He’s still a “kid” and he gets affected. He’s not that experienced as he shows, because he obviously hasn’t seen much of that kind of stuff, like how innocent people just die. When Briggs shot the guys in the pilot episode, it was because those guys did something wrong. But Eddie, he didn’t. He was doing something illegal, but he was doing it to make a living. Not for the fun of it. I love the last scene where you see Mike breaking down. I wanted to cry then. I wasn’t affected by Eddie’s suicide, because I know it’s a show and it’s just acting, but I see Mike and then I feel a bit of how he felt – shock, a bit of grief – and I feel like crying too. The cast is amazing. I love them all.
