LGBTQIA+. Identifying similar-intercourse individuals by letters can also be ironic and unhappy, opposite to frequent sense and even the Federal Constitution, which establishes that everybody is equal. Even extra absurd is the definition of a month or date for gay pride. People are what they’re for all times and it is unbelievable to have a second on the calendar to recollect deal with others with respect. Need some reflection on whether or not there’s a “completely different” sexual orientation in the intervening time? Is love between individuals against the law or is it restricted to solely heteros?

Love is a sense of the center which is egalitarian and with out discrimination. Love will probably be free to need and really feel needed and not predetermined by intercourse and/or gender. Feelings additionally happen between equals, naturally. If the inhabitants of the planet are the identical, contemplating their sexual orientation, the triviality of classifying them with letters is pointless.

Just as love for everybody shouldn’t be a “separate” feeling that exists between individuals of the identical intercourse, sexual orientation doesn’t suggest variations. It is completely different that those that don’t love, respect and observe intolerance nonetheless imagine that boys put on blue and women put on pink. It doesn’t name for public insurance policies for individuals based mostly solely on sexual orientation. Everyone has to alter their habits and beliefs.

It is feasible to look at social progress, sure, on account of many conflicts, sufferings, deaths and repeated manifestations. However, the reality is that we’re shifting at a snail’s tempo in regaining dignity and full acceptance. These are 1000’s of people who’re nonetheless marginalized and there will probably be no authorities tasks proposed by “unusual” individuals that may break conventional social limitations and assure citizenship, respect and tolerance.

The easy truth of being born with a sexual orientation perceived by 1000’s of conservatives and prejudiced as “completely different” already marginalizes that particular person. Many imagine that additionally they have the proper to drive sexual initiation, as in my case, after I was 8 years outdated, violence, threats and cowardice have been the end result.

I wrote an autobiographical e-book to replicate on these tales and the seek for happiness, when you may have so many questions and queries that require freedom. You can not transfer on to please others with out fulfilling your self. There isn’t any public coverage to supply a complete take a look at these trapped in conventions or throughout the “closet”.

The reality is, on daily basis a whole lot of gays and lesbians search for girlfriends and boyfriends to fulfill the embarrassing calls for of oldsters, family members and co-employees. How many don’t marry, in actual fact, hiding their sexual orientation? Whoever loves the identical shouldn’t be a felony and doesn’t commit against the law. This particular person shouldn’t be somebody who should stay via struggling by studying to cope with their feelings and needs, till they take management of their fears and desires with a view to transfer from disgrace to pride. Many individuals suffocate to demise contained in the closet for worry of those that nonetheless insist on questioning this love, as if it deserves much less respect than others.

Public insurance policies is not going to be sufficient. Social revolutions don’t win many followers, for instance, quota applications for individuals who like individuals of the identical intercourse. It is a matter of respect, justice, acceptance and on a regular basis equality. Dates shouldn’t be essential to make individuals conscious of prejudices akin to homophobia and racism among the many mills of a lot violence and a whole lot of deaths.

Regardless of sexual orientation, persons are the identical, take the identical dangers, stay with the identical issues, the identical doubts and worries. Everyone needs a secure, balanced and glad life. Who needs to go to a Nazi camp to be recognized by a quantity or, politely, to just accept a coding letter?

Those who “like this”, the overwhelming majority of individuals on this planet, should settle for themselves as clever, entire, glad, fruitful and helpful to a society which, from a distance, even when it turns its nostril, is aware of effectively past these individuals, Those who need to be pure and simply, respectable and glad.

It is critical to impose your self within the first place, respect and no matter. No one needs to be intimidated or hidden. Events just like the Gay Parade and Banda Mall present visibility, however are extra festive and worthwhile for the market. Of course, the proposal reveals the power of people that love the identical, nonetheless, I want greater than events.

It is crucial to proceed the battle for respect and acceptance, to boost consciousness and encourage frequent discussions to fight trivialization and violence. Deep reflection permits the elimination of prejudices, fears, complexes and disgrace. After all, a “completely different” sexual orientation doesn’t simply occur in another person’s household or in a neighbor’s home, and the verb for love is intransitive.
