We are all people, we are human. We don’t always love, and that is normal, because some people aren’t born to know how to love, which is unfortunate, but at this rate just the way it is. But it sparks a certain curiosity within me, and I’m sure in others, about what the problem with homophobic people is?
I suppose I can understand that for large portion of this community, their beliefs and ideas about homosexuality are motivated by their religion. It’s what they’ve been raised to believe, I understand that. And I’m certain there would be some kind of logic they behold to support their reasons. But today I’m here to say, as much as I try to accept your views out of respect for freedom of speech; that ‘rational’ view can’t be as plausible as the logical explanation attributed to why our hate on gay people is merely bred from our ye olde survival instincts that have been deeply ingrained in us since the day of the caveman.
In the bible it says ,"If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them." (NKJ, Leviticus) and in the Kiran it is written Qur'an (7:80-84) - "...For ye practice your lusts on men in preference to women: ye are indeed a people transgressing beyond bounds.... And we rained down on them a shower (of brimstone)" .Ok, sure. But let’s propose that maybe, just maybe this was written down only because man perceived gay people as a threat, I mean it seems a little obvious doesn't it? Why else would one go to such extreme lengths to enforce something? I mean, stoning a person to death?
This nowadays seems ridiculous to most modern thinkers. But back then the majority would not have thought so. But listen; we are animals. Face it. As sophisticated and intelligent as we are, we will always be, forever more, an asset to the animal community. In saying that, our ways of thinking have increased in complexity over the past few centuries; we have grown from primitive creatures to fancy schmancy polite snobby mammals who think we know what’s best for every living creature.
But once upon a time, all humans lived for was survival, and anything that threatened survival had to be dealt with somehow. If something didn’t seem right, then you had to go and scope it out to see if what a potential danger was. What I mean is, humans are kind of scaredy cats and overly weary of difference. And it all started with the caveman who found that his originally empty cave became a hungry bear’s abode. So that bear had to die. It’s the same today, except we don’t really kill to solve our differences. I mean, just because Johnny called you a name, doesn’t mean you’re going to bludgeon him to death does it? We just have to take a chill pill. Anyway, my point is, I think predominantly people are against gay people because it’s kind of, sort of, but not, but in a way, hereditary. Back in the day of JC almighty! We was all about breeding, bringing in the children! Continue the human race! And that’s what animals strive for to! We are like totally related! Anyway….imagine one day a gay man/woman from ages ago AD comes along and declares “well, this is awkward guys, but I’m gay.” That would threaten survival! But not! I mean, it would in these guys minds, because how is a gay man or woman supposed to make babies if he isn’t up for mating with the opposite sex? See? This would of posed as a threat, and would of become a view that was carried through generations of religious beliefs and (sorry, but I can’t help it) pure ignorance. So now, we either think we know why we don’t like gay people, or we just don’t like people and can’t really explain it because we think it’s wrong or whatever. But what it all comes down to in the end, is that we are nothing more than animals. Animals who don’t like threats, wary creatures who just need to calm the fuck down sometimes.
In conclusion that is why a lot of peeps think that way of gay people, because they have inherited the ‘wary of threat to survival’ gene that screws with their accepting side. But now that you know, hopefully you can take that on board and just be like; so I recognised a supposed threat….ok, do they seem dangerous now that I think about it?....No, they are just humans like us, and they aren’t hurting anyone. Huh. Ok. Well, I guess gay people are ok.
In fact! They rule! Just like the rest of the human race! Woo!
