So Mike and I watched the movie Milk, I thought it was awesome and it got Mike and I to talking about how the f*%$ do people actually think that being gay is evil? There was a woman who was on a religious crusade (or so it seemed) who wanted to punish people who were gay, and supported a law to fire all teachers who were deemed gay by the state government criteria. No one has ever said something to me or near me about hating someone who is of a different race or religion or sexual orientation. I think if anyone did I would have to say something or at least ask them not to say things like that near me. Actually now that I think about it, one of the placed I worked at and we had to screen people for donation and for some stupid reason gay men were not allowed to be organ donors because they had a higher risk of carrying an STD. Please! I know plenty of heterosexual women who had a much higher risk of getting an STD then a gay man, just total bullshit because we did blood tests so we would know if someone had AIDS or HIV. So this guy I worked with, who was a weirdo anyway, made a comment about some donors he had screened, he referred to one as a "fudge packer". I have to say I minorly flipped and told him to not ever speak like that in front of me again, I scolded a man who should have known a lot better, he was like 50 and I was 24!
Anyway, I just don't get it, I think it must have been drilled into their heads by someone and they must think its right to think that way. Everyone is allowed to think whatever they want but its awful if you think its okay to hate someone for something that is beyond their control.
