Do you ever look at social media nowadays and think how low some people can strike at those who can’t help the way they are? It’s strange how much these people seem to over think everything when it comes to LGBT and minority issues.
You would think that they would want to think less about those things if it was such an issue. Social media can be great for making a name for yourself and creating relationships with people in places in the world you can only visit in your wildest dreams. It’s wonderful and there are millions and millions of oddly great human beings that populate the internet, but we don’t pay attention to them.
We give the attention, wrongly, to the ones who are controversial, who say things we disagree with. It creates debate and widens the conversation.
They create an issue out of the littlest of things like the inclusion of a lesbian couple on a game show or a gay kiss. It’s stupid how much they care, how much they need to desperately make it a crusade every time they see something that they don’t agree with for some odd bizarre reason (excuse) like their religious beliefs or generational differences.
It’s not because your old, views change, society changes, we all can better ourselves regardless of anything that society has influences.
It isn’t an issue though, to these hermit groups of people, because they can’t grasp that love will always just be love and that’s all. They overthink and it leads to misinformed thoughts, stereotypes and ways of looking at how LGBTQ people have relationships.
They have mood boards of AIDS and promiscuity and sleeping around I wrote an article a few months back on the subject of an over-sexualisation of LBGTQ people which you can read here- the-over-sexualisation-of-gay.html
I think it’s important to note that we should never stereotype LGBT people in this way because we are all the same. I mean yes, some people have a certain problem with being over eager to hook up, but that can actually be a genuine addiction, but that’s another subject all together and is definitely not the majority of ordinary folk.
That’s just it though, some people don’t necessarily have issue with it, it’s more about being able to express a different viewpoint. We should always respect the fact that people have different viewpoints. It is how we will move forward in our society. There must always be a cut off point though. It’s disgusting how far some people will go in order to get a reaction. I’ve seen some terrible things online, and I think unless something drastic is done, it will only get worse. Hate needs to be regulated.
Reactions are nothing really, a reaction is a temporary thing, and temporary things will be worthless ultimately. All the time these people spend online spreading their prejudice and hate and disguising themselves behind blank profiles and names like ‘trolls’ they make a habit of being terrible people. Why would you want to spend even a second of your life doing that?
