It happened at a municipal faculty in Posse, within the excessive northeast of the state of Goiás. “What has a person to do with a person and a lady with a lady? All issues. For if you’re a person, you’re made for a girl. And a lady for a person. He who runs away from her is unclean. .” “, stated the instructor (stunned) in the course of the class. And he added: “If you wish to name me homophobic, you may.” Dear instructor, I do not know why love bothers you a lot. Who decreed that Two males or two girls can’t love one another? Religion? Ideas like yours are so outdated and absurd that they transcend orthodoxy. Do you assume you will have the suitable to resolve who ought to love whom? If your son or What would you do if the daughter got here out as homosexual in the future? Would you not be ashamed of abandoning her, imposing a lifetime of rejection and struggling on her? Just due to who she is?

How can such a pure and stunning feeling trigger hatred and prejudice? Why are some resentful of others’ happiness? Why do they hassle with what is most intimate in different individuals’s lives? Many “conservatives” deal with LGBTQIA individuals as examples of outcasts or oddities. Meanwhile, they commit adultery and hate essentially the most sacred, the household. Yes, same-sex {couples} can and ought to have households. They can and ought to have youngsters. They can and ought to develop outdated with those that love them. Who will inform them that they don’t have that proper?

On the social community, the opposite day, I met Internet customers questioning the household mannequin based mostly on the union of homosexuals. They vomited insults and stated “this is not household”. They quoted God and the Bible. I ask: Then, what is this God?

In current days, Jair Bolsonaro has participated in podcasts and distilled homophobia, with jokes that are appalling and unbecoming of a head of state. Such reactions, sadly, reinforce prejudice and discrimination. Especially amongst these Brazilians who nonetheless sympathize with the president. The newest Datafolha ballot exhibits that 80% of homosexuals and bisexuals disapprove of Bolsonaro. Newton’s regulation, you bear in mind? “For each motion there is at all times a response of equal magnitude and course.”

Brazil is the nation with the best variety of LGBTQIA individuals killed. According to a report ready by Grupo Gay da Bahia, there have been 276 murders in 2021. They are dad and mom, youngsters, brothers, Brazilians who simply wished – and deserved – to be beloved and had their lives interrupted by cowards. Behavior like that of the instructor talked about at first of this textual content and the President of the Republic, who needs to be guided by respect for all Brazilians, legitimizes and helps violence towards those that solely wish to be beloved. Love is love, that’s all.
