Let's Talk...love is love


"I hate the word homophobia.
It's not a phobia. You're not 
scared. You're an asshole."
- Morgan Freeman

*Before you continue reading this I'd just like to say that I pride myself
on being open and honest and expressing my raw opinion. Which is exactly
what I'm doing in this post because it is something that I am extremely
passionate about and I will not apologise for defending what is right.*

"He's straight" "He's gay" "She's a lesbian" "She's straight" NO! Stop with the labels. People... they're people. People who have a brain, a heart, blood running through their veins and the right to love whoever the hell they want to love. There isn't a single person in the world who has the right to tell anyone who to love and what makes a family. I care about whether a person has the ability to love, that's what is important to me. I couldn't give a crap who they choose to love because love is love. 

The idea that love knows sex is ridiculous. Love is worth living for and it is worth dying for. Love is too beautiful, pure and magical to be hidden because some assholes get easily offended. I know some people like to blame their blatant homophobia on the fact that it goes against what they believe in. Which I am going to call bullshit on. Yep. I don't care if I offend someone with that comment because they don't show the same courtesy to people who are simply being themselves. I, personally, don't believe in God; but I'm pretty sure it doesn't state in the bible that God hates same sex couples so they should be bullied into a corner and discriminated against and should be treated as though they're less of a person. Here's a few things that it does state:

Romans 13:8: "Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law."

1 Corinthians 13:4-5: "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs."

1 Corinthians 16:14: "Do everything in love."

1 John 4:16: "And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them."

1 Peter 4:8: "Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins."

Now I'm going to clearly state that I don't mind people believing in God or following their religion, nor would I ever discriminate against those who do. But please, never blame your homophobia on your religion. Because you and I both know that it has nothing to do with that, you just can't get your head out of your ass and see that the world has changed. Men are entitled to love men just as much as they're entitled to love Women. Women are entitled to love women just as much as they're entitled to love Men. Because love is love. And no amount of hate, intimidation and attacks can change that. 

Hate will never win against love. Love is the closest thing we have to real magic, but hate is just artificial.

Love always, Han
