I support Gay Rights. by cherry-bomb94 I support Gay Rights. by cherry-bomb94
"Homophobia is Gay"
--------
Inspired by a trip to Brighton, somewhat the gay capital of the UK.
--------
I'm actually pretty pleased with it, considering that i didn't have a ribbon to copy and i was using free coloured pencils I stole from my niece.
Either way its taken me absolutely ages due to the whole ribbon thing so I hope it's paid off!

I hope you like and feel free to comment :)


oh and i used this pic for reference of the fist: [link]

Why Do Gay and Bisexual People Want Special Rights?

Generally speaking, gay rights are about securing the same rights and privileges for all people regardless of their sexual orientation. These include things like equal employment opportunities, equal protection in cases where violence has been threatened or has occurred, the ability to serve in the military, to file taxes jointly, and various rights associated with marriage like the right to inherit property, to adopt children, and to decide the medical care of an incapacitated partner.

You will notice that all heterosexual people already have these rights and privileges. There is therefore nothing 'special' about them. They are ordinary, run-of-the-mill things that most straight people take for granted.

If I'm Straight, Why Should I Care About Sexual Orientation or Gay Rights?

If you are straight, you are very lucky that you may never receive discrimination based on your orientation. But chances are that you know or will know many people who are gay or bisexual. Some of these people may be friends or family, so it may understandably bother you if they are targeted for violence or discrimination.

The more same-sex behavior and feelings are condemned, the more hostile the environment gets for everyone. It's a burden to have to constantly worry that something you say or do, or the way you dress, or an inaccurate rumour could make you the next victim. Living in a tolerant society is better for straight people because they don't have to constantly second guess their actions.

THANK YOU FOR ALL THE SUPPORT :D

I'm really sorry for the pain you've been through. It just doesn't make sense I don't think, the hate :(
But don't lose hope, cause there's some more of 'accepting me's' somewhere else around the corner ;) and I think with each passing day it's going to get better. Good luck

I'm glad you like my picture, it means a lot to me :)
All the best
