If this post offends anyone, then I am sorry but I feel like I need to say this. The world needs parents who truly love their kids, who love them no matter what. Parents turn their kids away for any reason do not deserve to be parents. When you stand in the way of your child’s happiness, are you really doing right by them? Just because your son and daughter are gay does not mean that suddenly, you can abandon them. It gives you no freaking right to abuse them verbally or physically. You have no right, no right at all. You should instead realize that your child is coming to you with something that has perhaps been a huge burden in their life up till now.
I have nothing against straight people, Christians, or any other people in this great nation, but apparently, there are people who cannot stand me. They cannot stand the idea of me of being truly happy with the man that I love. It sickens me to think that when I find him, that we will always be second-class citizens with no legal rights to protect us in times of sickness or death. In Indiana, we could not be married. We may be able to adopt. They do not recognize any marriages from outside of Indiana, which means there are no protections. In other words, if I get sick and I’m in the hospital, my family could keep my boyfriend from seeing me. We could not file taxes as a couple. He could not inherit from me. In the event of my death, my family could legally put him through a mess. I’m asking to consider your loved one and how you would feel if suddenly, you were told that could not visit them in the hospital or that you could no longer be carried on their health insurance or vice versa. Our love is just as real as the love between man and woman. I don’t have anything else to say, so I am going to say good-bye. Oh one last thing, you can’t decide who I love.
