The biggest debate going on across the country is wether or not being gay is a chioce. This is a large debate in the southern states. Between companies having their employees sign anti gay agreements, to “Don’t Ask; Don’t Tell” being revoked. Politicians try to tell their supporters how being gay is a choice for gays and lesbians. This shows a complete lack of empathy. Anyone that attempts to tell people how they think and feel do not need to hold leadership roles. Have you ever heard a gay or lesbian tell their parents or anyone else for that matter, that being heterosexual is a choice?
Thanks to “that chick from ‘Sex in the City’”, this battle hasn’t gotten any better. She goes on national TV, and states that for her, being gay is a choice. This went wild in the gay community, because the years of progress lost.
Being gay or lesbian is NOT a choice! I knew when I was less than five years old, when I looked at TV programs differently. Of course I didn’t even know what gay meant at that age. I didn’t officially come out until I was 19, which was in 1999. I started noticing boys in 9th grade, of course there was nothing I could do about it back then in rural North Carolina. I had no interest seeing girls, I did try. I was just not interested in girls romantically, I don’t see that as my fault, and doesn’t appear that I had a choice.
I am trying to educate from the first person perspective. The debate over choice is not the only debate going on. I invite anyone that reads my blog to go to my facebook page here The Dragon Writer I welcome any questions or comments at all. I want to be a voice in our community.
