Unpopular Opinion in a World of Sensitivity…
Let me start this off by saying this is a rant. This is my blog after all and what are blogs great for? Ranting. Second of all, if you are easily offended please do not continue reading, and if you dont heed that warning and decided to go on, you probably will find some way to personalize this and become offended and since I did warn you, it is now your fault. Just remember that at the end of this… Don’t worry I’ll remind you.
So here’s what’s been bothering me lately. The Orlando Shooting. I know that sounds horrible, and if it’s bothering me than I need to take my conservative republican views and shove them right? Well at least give me a few minutes to explain and if you still feel the same then refer back to the first paragraph where I did, indeed, warn you. So this shooting, why is it bothering me so bad? Is it because I think gays are terrible, horrible excuses for human beings? Well no. I actually don’t think that at all. Is it because I’m religious and it’s wrong? No, I mean yes I am finding my religion again, but who am I to judge what’s wrong when I’ve made more mistakes than I have thoughts. So what is it about this situation that just absolutely burns me to the core?
It is simply this, I feel horribly for the family’s who have to bury loved ones. I’ve been there with a tragic death, and really it’s heart breaking. I wouldn’t wish that upon anyone. Let me get back to the simpleness here: All the “gay pride” and “gay support” parades and groups that are going on and on about support and gun control. For one, I do not support the fact that I’m straight. You will never see me waving a reversed rainbow flag (is that even possible?) shouting how much I love men. If I am not going to go out of my way to support something I am, I’m damn sure not going to go out of my way to support something I am not. So now here we are, and I’m sure you’re reading this thinking, “Hey, heartless is about supporting love, not gays.” But is it really? If it was about supporting love, why are we not calling these the Love Parades or even Support Love Rally.
It’s honestly this simple, if you don’t like gay people because you think they choose to make a choice that makes them struggle socially their entire lives than I honestly feel sorry for you and you should just not speak. If you love gay people and you want to shout it to the world, awesome! But don’t preach to me about gay rights and don’t you dare look at me like I’m a hateful person because I’m not going out of my way to support your momma’s cousin’s son’s new relationship with his boyfriend. I mean, do you even really know any gay people closely? People these days just take on everyone’s issues and claim to suffer with them and that’s just ridiculous. That’s another rant for another post. Phew this world.
Here’s the thing. If you want to have your Gay Pride Parades and your friends want to come support you, you all go support on! That’s great, I’m so glad that you feel that confident about who you are! I’m not even there, but DO NOT make me feel or act like I’m any less of a person because I refuse to go out of my way to do so as well, and lets not go blow it up either just because we disagree with their life style. Leave the people who want to be there be, and leave the people who don’t want to go be…. It’s really that simple. Do what you want and don’t let what other people are doing compromise your happiness. Do what you want and be happy, but you don’t have to preach it and tell people who aren’t doing the same they are wrong. It’s as simple as living your life and letting others live theirs.
As for the gun control aspect, let me tell you this. (This aspect is my biggest pet peeve) Taking away law abiding citizens guns will give you two types of people with guns, the government and the criminals. I know you’ve heard that before but I need you to really hear me. Do you really want the government who is full of bullshitting politicians who have their own agendas and gang murdering raping criminals to be the only people in America with guns? I didn’t think so. So before you preach ban guns or make it impossible for people to legally obtain guns, think about that. I am not against making it some what harder for people to obtain an assault rifle. I say some what because I still think the criminals will find a way, and you will spend all the time in the world to get them banned and turn around and still have an assault riffle problem.
I’ll keep the gun control comments there because that could take me 6 whole months to explain my stance on that view. But bottom line, I love gay people, I love straight people, I love people who can shoot guns, I love people who think guns should be banned from every where. But I am not going to go out of my way to support a lifestyle that I don’t live when I do not go out of my own to support my own. I think the world would be a better place if everyone could take everyone’s opinion, hear it, think about it, agree to disagree, explain their own and then go get food together. Or agree and still go get food together. This hate problem we have is only going to get worse the more sensitive this country grows and unfortunately we are the only ones who can change that. So remember if you are offended I warned you and if you want to share your opinion with me, whether you agree or disagree than do it! I welcome all things, except for assholes. Don’t be an asshole. :)
