I have a question for you. Yes, you. I have a question. Why are you homophobic?
Do you think we’re disgusting? Do you think that two men or two women should not kiss, make out, hook up? Do you think that it’s wrong for two people who love each other to express their affection physically, rather than through text messages and heart emojis?
You may think that two men or two women kissing is uncomfortable and ungodly. But how do you know that you’re scrunching up your face in revulsion because two men or two women are kissing? How do you know that you’re not just cringing because two people are displaying their affection, publicly?
Because a peck on the lips is a peck. And if you ignore the sex of the two kissers, it’s just two lips meeting each other. That’s it. Lips are all lips. Some are big and some are small. Some are darker in color and some are lighter in color. But lips are all equal. So why can’t there be universal lip suffrage?
Some of you may think that two men or two women kissing or being in a relationship is wrong because it’s just wrong. Just like how killing a man is wrong. You may denounce this glorious warm, rainbow-blooded act as a crime against humanity, or a crime against you.
So are you saying that two men or two women should not kiss because it’s against the status quo? But the status quo changes, does it not?
50 years ago, the American Psychological Association’s DSM (a handbook that diagnosed and described basically every psychological disorder) said that homosexuality was a mental illness. The status quo at that time was that homosexuals needed to be treated in mental hospitals for their “sickness.”
But the times have changed. No longer is are pure, rainbow-blood tarnished by false accusations and persecution; we can party and play all night.
So if the status quo does change, shouldn’t your opinions change as well? If of course, you obey the status quo, which you do.
Some of you may think that God (or some divine deity) specified that only one man and one woman could go together. I mean, you kind of have a point; a man’s Richard seems to fit nicely into a woman’s Bowl to form a complete whole. Yin and Yang.
But that’s pretty exclusive. I mean, a rainbow includes every colour and everyone. Inclusion is fun and no one likes to be left out.
But that’s far from this point. Imagine a box. A box has a cube-like shape, does it not? Does that mean that only cube-like objects can go inside a box? Of course not. We can put bananas in a box. We can put pizza slices in a box. We can put apples in a box. If the box is big enough, we could put a giraffe in a box. And if we fill the box up to the top with giraffes, apples, and bananas, the box is full, is it not? So if we can put objects of assorted shapes and sizes into a box, why is a man’s Richard the only thing that can fit inside a woman’s Bowl to make the Bowl full?
To say that you’re missing out is a huge understatement. You’re missing out on days of giggling and gossip. You’re missing out on the feeling of being included, accepted, and supported. You’re missing out on a fabulous community of rainbow-blooded humans, though you may think we’re animals. Because 60% of giraffes are homosexual. So with your logic, we must all be blonde, tall, long-legged giraffes.
