A General Apology to the Gay Community

mindgames's picture

My name is Jason, and I am 17 years old. I'm a heterosexual and stumbled across this site while looking for information on the gay community after learning that my brother (age 14) is gay. I read the discussion form topic "Fags are sex-obsessed heathens" and was immediately ashamed of the straight community as a whole because of the individual who goes by "Castaway." I hope the oversized group of heterosexuals who are infected with the deadly disease commonly known as narrow-mindedness don't overshadow those straight people who don't view gay people as immoral or disgusting, but only as normal human beings.

For people like "Castaway," I apologize. Some people just don't get what it means to love your neighbor.

There are actually nice straight people. That came out
sounding really really bad but my experience with family
and some closed minded friends has made me stray
from being friends with straight people...Hum

no apology necessary

You don't need to apologize for something that's not your fault. I'm glad that there are people like you out there, and your brother is lucky to have someone as accepting as you in his family - it's exactly what he needs at this point in his life.

I accept your apology on behalf of all those not as open-minded as you. Thank you for your kindness (and I guess, some measure of bravery) for posting this. You are further proof that people can be awesome.
