Stop. Stop right fucking there. Stop exactly where you are right now and just look at this.
Let me tell you all something, alright? I will tell you something very fucking important right now, so give me your full attention.
Homophobia kills. This is an iron-clad fact that old-time higher-ups refuse to believe and acknowledge, but it is truth. Homophobia is not a fear. Homophobia is a hatred. It burns brighter than the blood spilled from all the suicides and murders of LGBT people all over the fucking world, spits and crackles louder than our cries for equality. It is an all-consuming fire, that will forever burn our hearts out.
Homophobes hate us. Many of them want us dead, because we don’t fit. We are the spare puzzle pieces on a board of solid black and white, the pieces made of such vibrant color because of everything we feel and everything we’ve gone through and are going to have happen to us. Homophobes don’t want us to exist, this is something you must understand.
But this? This is unacceptable.
You think this is okay? You think this is funny? Well let me fucking tell you kid, answering hatred with hatred does nothing but fuel that goddamned fire. We are not aiming to kill. We are not aiming to make ourselves look like the homophobes do, like we are better than them, and therefore they should be wiped out. Just because they want us dead does not mean we should lower ourselves to their level.
What you are suggesting is that murder is okay. You are suggesting that because they don’t believe what we believe, they should die. And let me tell you, that is the very fucking thing we’ve been trying to stop since this whole big-ass ridiculous mess started.
You know why they call it equality? Because it means that everyone is equal. Not, “those who don’t believe what we believe are lesser.” Not, “those who weren’t made the way we were made should not exist.” It means that everyone is created equal, and therefore should be treated that way, regardless of their preferences on any fucking thing.
Because in the end? We’re all only human. Pathetic little things parading around with our pathetic little opinions about the Earth, the Earth that’s nurtured you, created you, guided you. This is nature. We’re created this way; we can’t change that. But we can change opinion. Blowing up a couple hundredthousandMILLION people up? That’s just plain fucking stupid. We’re natural this way, this way that we live. But I guess it’s also human nature to hate, too.
So you want to be angry? Get angry. Go fucking Hulk for all I care, break a couple Linkin log cities with plastic nukes. Punch a pillow. Write an angry letter to your senator. Cry. Join a protest. Rant on Tumblr for god’s sake. But don’t be stupid. Anger is controllable, but stupidity is contagious.
Also, a little after-note? There are communities of LGBT people living in most of the red sections on this map. A nuke would be defeating the cause, brotha.
