How Long Must We Continue This Charade?
Seriously, how many more years do we need an entire Pride Month? Are there any rights that are still denied the LGBTQ community? Are they absent from media, entertainment, or the corporate world? Is there anyone who really gives a shit if you’re LGBTQ nowadays as long as you’re not shoving your sexuality in their faces 24/7 or pushing it on their young children? As with the race baiters who keep division & hatred alive, there’s no need to keep acting like it’s the 1960s. Does that mean that racism and bigotry have been wiped out completely? Of course not, and it probably never will be, but in the modern world, it’s been isolated to a tiny sliver of society. On CNBC, supposedly a financial channel, they’ve been running segments every hour all month discussing stories of LGBTQ corporate execs, you know, because they’re so rare and isolated you can only find about 100,000 examples. I saw a social media post discussing the Matthew Shepard anti-gay hate crime. As bad as that incident was, I couldn’t help but think, “Really? These events are so rare you had to go back 25 years to find one?!” Even back then these were extremely isolated incidents. Nowadays, coming out doesn’t lead to “oppression.” If anything, being LGBTQ is considered “cool” in much of society, such as high school, college, and the entire entertainment industry. Enough already with the whining! This perpetual victimhood will never improve your lives or bring people together.
