Before the GSA started two weeks ago I was naive to the intolerance in my school. Yesterday I was walking to lunch and on one of the posters we put up it had "Faggots" written across it (the others have "dissapeared"). If I kept track of how many times I hear "fag",and "queer" I'll probably lose count. It makes me sick. How can people still be like this? Haven't GLBT been fighting for equality for hundreds of years? It's like a hair style that goes in and out of style. One century we have rights; the next homosexuality is disgusting.
I hate waiting and waiting and waiting for another state to introduce a same-sex marrige bill only for it to be shot down. I don't get why people are like this. How can people base everything off of prejudice? How do people make fun of anyone regardless of sexual orientation? Don't they feel guilty, and horrible knowing that they're making someones life miserable?
I don't understand.
I wrote PRIDE on my hand in huge letters today. A "fuck you" to whoever wrote that on the sign. Guess I just have to remember all the people who do accept GLBT, like the girl who I came out to today when she asked what "PRIDE" meant. It sucks how all the nice and caring people get overlooked by the bigots in my school. A lot of people have it worse then me, I'm sorry if this sounds like one big complaint.
