The cruelty that radiates from the homophobic population is simply a mask, a facade for their blatant fear and ignorance. And even then, what is there to fear? A fourteen year old trans-boy and his friends protesting peacefully about the rights that we've been denied? The boy's grief that more of his brothers and sisters have fallen, either by their hand or another's? Vigils? Teens not speaking for an entire day to protest bullying? Men confessing their love for each other? Women doing the same? A boy hoping that he and his boyfriend can say their vows and legally be married?
Here is the true nightmare that has been a reality for far too long: bullying, harassment, suicides, hate crimes, and above all, parents failing at what they should do best because their children and teens are too afraid to tell them how they feel.
I came out to my dad, I told him how I feel in this shell, and how I love this boy. Sure, I kept it general by saying I like boys, but I told him about the boy I love all the same. One day, I plan on telling our parents together. The whole truth. Now, my dad didn't say that I could transition. He didn't say I could constantly wear boy's clothes, but he said that he wanted me to be who I was. That he wanted me to be happy. Well, I know who I am, and that makes me happy.

I am Andrew Keith MacPherson, a boy who loves another boy, who protests about my denied rights, and who just wants to be free, as do the rest of my brothers and sisters. Men, women, teens and children on the LGBT spectrum, it's our time.
Let the pride flags wave in the sky, in all their pristine glory, for all eternity!!!
Those of us on the LGBT spectrum are people. We were BORN with rights.

When will people see that?

Right? We are who we are, and since we don't judge others, what right do they have to judge us?

I know right? Yet, we're singled out when we hold hands!? What is that? Oh yeah...prejudice, bigotry, ingorance, and hate. And I find it sad that so many people are okay with that. :no:
