.....I made this article because I feel sad for the situation of homosexuals...I think society has been too cruel on them...And I know that I can afford to give them some acceptance & understanding...even if I am just one person....Even straight people find it so hard to keep themselves from being condemned by society...how much more is it difficult for them?..



...I sympathize with all gay people,but I rather prefer the harmless,peaceful ones...I have nothing against the loud,flamboyant ones...I think it's nice of them to be expressive,plus they are rather imaginative & creative...But to some of the liberated ones,please do not let men take advantage of you just to feel temporary happiness...and please do not prey on some poor men also who need forms of help & will do anything like sell themselves to you just to acquire the needed assistance (usually financial)....you will only be hurting yourselves & them in the end...plus I do not approve of any kind of prostitution....But if your men love you,accept you & will support you for whoever you are...then by all means, good luck & God bless to you...
*To the people who are very knowledgeable about the topic of the article & to those who just want to give their comments...I appreciate corrections & all comments...But please say it nicely...thank you...

“Is it wrong, really??? I didn’t know it’s wasn’t right…Will daddy forgive me?”

“Why wouldn’t the other kids let me play with them, mommy? I have never bullied anyone among them.”

“What’s with them anyway? Is it bad to be different? Is it really such a sin?”

Mind hazarding a guess as to whom these musings might belong to? It could be an indigenous individual…Or maybe a kid with a certain disability…Someone who doesn’t quite meet the requirements of a certain status quo could fit the bill as well…A child who did something seriously wrong may utter these lines too…But, this piece isn’t about them- at all. These personalities are already being championed and proclaimed worldwide by various organizations with noble causes. The people I’m referring to are politely termed as the ‘homosexuals’. In normal talk, you can hear them called ‘gay’ and in some situations are actually slandered with names so foul and unmentionable for the vision of the eyes plus the hearing of the ears. So, let’s get going, shall we?

According to one English dictionary, a ‘homosexual’ is defined as somebody who is sexually attracted to a member of their own gender. But now, it’s also defined as someone who does not act naturally to their biological gender. In the eyes of society, that’s a big taboo. Majority of schools strongly discourage them in many ways and the church condemns it, but should it really be that way? Basically, there are three types of homos; those who know it from childhood, those who realize it in life later on & those who become homosexual only later on. And from the latter type, many more branch out. Like those who were bullied & confused by narrow minded people into becoming gay & those who weren't able to overcome some stages of their childhood & consequentially,became gay. Then of course, there are two more subdivisions of homosexuality, those who deny it and those who acknowledge it. And that brings me to my main question, is embracing one’s homosexuality really wrong?

The Bible reasons out that whatever we were made to be by God, we must accept wholeheartedly and not change. In this perspective, homosexuality can be considered as incorrect. But then, if it is wrong, then why did God create them and did He not mention that we must accept and understand others just as they are?

Many persecute them and call them sinful, but is embracing one’s true nature a grievous offense? Were we not taught from the dawn of our lives to be honest, most especially to ourselves because lying to ourselves will hurt us the most? Is not a homosexual a person too? Does he/she not deserve to be treated like persons as we are? As Shylock in Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice puts it, “Hath not a Jew eyes? Hath not a Jew hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions, fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer, as a Christian is? If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?” We must not forget that deep down inside they are humans too. They hurt, they bleed, they love and they are like us in very many ways we wouldn’t usually admit.. They must have their feelings injured as well by the way others treat them and if we attempt to put ourselves in their shoes, we realize that somehow, they didn’t want to be this way. They must’ve wanted to conform to the standards of normal society but just couldn’t. By embracing their true selves, they are only being honest in the clearest manner and we must give credit to them. It’s not easy to admit to yourself that you are something that’s different and will be treated in a unique manner from most other people. It’s not nice to tell your loved ones that hey, I’m not who you think I am at the same time being taunted and in the process, hurt by others for who you really are. Maybe for them, gender is dissociated from true nature and maybe for those homosexual couples, Love need not follow rules. Love is merely a feeling and action devoid of connection to a matter called gender. That Love appreciates only one’s true nature and devotion. For me, it’s not wrong to be homo as long as you don’t harm others in the process of being so.
