I Hate That Word…

I read a post that completely disturbed me…

I am beyond disappointed, hurt, or fury…

Trying to understand how someone could be so simple-minded, belittling, and ignorant, does not come easy to me. This post, “I will not apologize to faggots”  how I hate that word, which is why I used * in my original post Call me a F***** Lover, visit here: https://aladyhoodjourney.wordpress.com/2017/02/02/call-me-a-f-lover/), was a slap in the face to anyone in the LGBTQIAP+ community and to anyone who supports them.

The slurs, judgement, and violent descriptions of how gays should feel about themselves in this post is a clear depiction of why suicide rates are so high for members of the LGBTQIAP+ community.

In this post, members of the LGBTQIAP+ community are referred to as:

“damn butt pluggers…”

“Those nasty ass no account, filthy, shit smelling faggots should be disrespected…”

“disgusting, vile and filthy degenerates…”

“rejects from hell…”

“sick fucks…”

Saying that who they are is “sick ass, twisted shit!”

When it came to being discriminated against, she stated, “Those immoral freaks of nature are the last things slithering that’s deserving of an apology, despicable abominations!”

But, here is the quote that got me boiling… I wanted to reach through my screen…

“You honestly want everyone who is not down with your lifestyle choices to apologize to you if we so much as look cross-eyed at your nasty ass? Well, beg me to apologize to you useless fucks and please hold your breath until I do because that way, you’d all be dead because you’d turn blue and keel over before I’d ever apologize for a goddamn thing I say about you or to you.” 

In response to a comment someone made about offending someone with this post, the writer stated, ignorantly,“If they don’t like what they see here and if they are faggot lovers, then they can just ‘unfollow’ me and get ta steppin’! By now, everyone who steps foot up in here know my feelings or lack thereof over those detestable creatures. And I hope like hell I offended some filthy ass butt pokers, I hope I did ’cause I’m hoping they hold their breath while awaiting an apology. They some dead motherfuckers if they is!! LOL!!”  

What a bigot!

On behalf of my friends that are gay… on behalf of every young boy or girl struggling with determining their sexuality, and on behalf of the entire LGBTQIAP+ community, I am so sorry that people are ignorant… that they do not see hat the words they use, hurt. They are so caught up in the right and wrong, and because the do not understand nor agree, they target your lifestyle to bash and bully. They treat you like you are not a human…

…a human with rights.

…a human that loves.

…a human that feels pain.

…a human that just wants to be treated as an equal.

We have to stop using slurs like F*****

Please know that you are beautiful, handsome, intelligent, proud, bold, passionate, and so strong to stand up for your rights; the rights of others and for what is right.

Equality!

Never stop fighting, and never let someone tell you that you are less than because of the way you were born and how you live your life.

(For more information, read It’s not a choice… where I speak out against why who we are attracted too and who we love, is not a choice)

Here are some other motivational and uplifting posts that I hope can lift your spirits through the negativity of this world:

10 things men should never say to women

  1. Calm Down! (Don’t tell me what to do…if I am not calm, its probably your fault.) 
  2. You are too emotional! (Well at least I will live longer, because I know how to let my emotions go, instead of holding on to them!) Edit

  3. You don’t have to raise your voice! (Listen… if you think that this is loud…you have no idea how raised, my voice can be…)  
  4. I don’t care! (Well, you really don’t want me to stop caring…keep it up…)
  5. What did you do to your hair? (If you don’t like my hair style, don’t say anything. It will change to something else in about a week, anyway.)  
  6. Is it that time of the month, again? (What, are you keeping track? Listen, menstruation is not the reason for my attitude, you are an arse, that is the only reason for my attitude.)
  7. I think we should take a break. (We are either together, or broke up, no grey areas.) 
  8. I want you to have my baby… (Don’t be mad 3 months later, when she is pregnant!) 
  9. You are acting like a bitch! (All I hear is, BITCH, so if you want to take that road, be prepared for pot holes, sharp turns, and falling rock.) 
  10. You sound just like your mother. (I am my own person. I sound like myself!)

Flee

a long drive ahead…windows down

warmth, dust and smog in the wind…

pounding pavement…

wheels spin.

Red, white, and blue in the distance…

Hair down & wild…

mascara trails..

knuckle gripped,

chest tight,

heart hammering…

fire lit and smoke surrounds…

…red & blue sirens blare in the distance…

no more discrimination…

 no racism…

no stereotypes…

no inequality…

no turning back!

freedom, at last….

The best Thanksgivings are Chaotic

When the MACY’s parade comes on, and you are singing along with the cast of CATS, you are having a good Thanksgiving.

If you are running late, but you have to go to the store to buy one more can of Cranberry sauce before going to grandma’s house, you are having a good Thanksgiving…

When there are two red lip stick, kiss stains on your cheeks, you are having a good Thanksgiving.

If you are wearing an itchy sweater that your grandmother knitted, you are having a good Thanksgiving.

If the 1-year-old is running around in her diaper and won’t put on her brand-new outfit, you’re having a good Thanksgiving.

When there is not enough room in the oven to bake the macaroni & cheese, you are having a good Thanksgiving.

If the game is tied 13-13, in the 4th quarter with seconds on the clock, and you are clenching your teeth, praying that the Detroit Lions make this last field goal, you are having a good Thanksgiving.

If the room is filled with the sounds of too early to be listening to this, Christmas music, you’re having a good Thanksgiving.

When your uncle is telling the same story that you have heard 100 times, you are having a Thanksgiving.

When you have given thanks, made your plate, and go to take your first bite, and then you must give it to your toddler, you are having a good Thanksgiving.

If there are stains all over the couch, loveseat, and the carpet, you are having a good Thanksgiving.
