Hop Against Homophobia Blog Event!
WARNING SOAPBOX RANT!
During most of my adult life, especially now that I write m/m romance, I've wondered why do so called heterosexual activists care about what gays or lesbians do behind closed doors. Has anyone from the GLBT community told you what to do in your own life?
2nd thing, why is it so important to people to force their so called moralities on others? Yeah, you may say, "well the bible says being gay or lesbian is wrong." Yeah well so is murdering, adultery, and war so as far as I'm concerned we're all sinners if we were to follow the so called bible code. Whatever the deal is, all people are from different religious backgrounds and some have no faith as all. Why is it important to force your beliefs on everyone?
Everyday the news is filled with stupidity about so called "Christians" in government offices talking about marriage being between one man and one woman while on the other hand, these are the same idiots who have cheated on their wives, who've had more than one in some places and erm, in some states, its okay to be with a relative. Oh just don't let it be your gay relative. *laughs* The hypocrisy is maddening! Are these really the people who want to take prominent roles in shaping the country? Good Lord help us!
That's why things like this blog hop happen! We're here to hop against homophobia, letting people know that love is love regardless of gender. I'd like to add color in there as well since this civil rights fight is reminiscent of the sixties when my own marriage might have been illegal. (I'm married to a Hispanic man) Why is history repeating itself? The racial issues still exist but now there are people who want to discriminate against you because of your orientation. WTF?
End the hate! Mind your own business! Let the GLBT community thrive and go back to the caves in which you came from. It has nothing to do with you.
Instead of spending time telling people who to love why not lead the parade on how we can end some of the issues and suffering worldwide? There are so many more pressing things to be concerned with than the two gay men who want to get married.
* Okay so I've said my peace. Now, lets do a giveaway. You have 4 days to leave a comment that includes your email and win a book from my backlist. I'll giveaway 1 from each pseudonym. BLMorticia, Michael Mandrake, and Rawiya.
Hope you enjoyed my ramble. Please visit the other hoppers in this event and good luck!
