Getting a Little Political

First of all, I don't want to get too political here. I've never been too interested in politics or arguments for that matter. I try to keep my opinions to myself because I don't like to argue or cause any kind of problems. But something I've grown to feel pretty strongly about is gay rights, especially after this season of The Real World: DC.

I'm a huge believer in equality and I know that our world will never be 100% equal, but we all have to want it to be. I was raised a Christian and I still am one, but I was raised to think that being gay is a sin. As I got older and heard people's stories and had friends who were gay, I don't think you can judge so strongly. People love who they are going to love and you can't change something so personal.

It hurts me so much to hear that people's families who were once so strong fall apart because one of the kids loves the same gender. How the parents take everything away from them because of the person they love. Not because this person is a bad influence, has hurt them in any way, or taken steps to destroy the family; but because of something so simple as the person they love.

And hearing the people can't be in the military, can't be married...these basic rights that they say every American has; gays can't do these things legally.

So here is my wish. People can get angry at me and people can say I'm ignorant or don't know much. But I just wish that everything could be equal. Anyone can marry whoever they love. Whoever wants to go into the military can. That all people men or women can make the same wages. That people don't judge based on sexuality, skin color, or gender. Go forth and be kind and it will come back to you in a good way.

  4. Aww... I'm so glad my post made you happy, glad that you have a great family and aren't afraid to show it, and glad you're my newest follower! Welcome and thank you! <3

  5. Well said Lauren. Equality for that so much to ask? I'm happy to hear that you are making your own beliefs despite being raised a different way. Glad you enjoyed my blog sweetie...I'm definitely loving yours!! :) xo

  6. I completely agree with you! It still surprises me sometimes, how judgmental some people can be towards others. I mean, stopping people from getting married just because they happen to of the same gender? It's just stupid. Of course everyone should be equal!
