Worry About Yourself...

So, this post may enrage some people and may be something that others agree with but regardless, it's my opinion.  Over the last few years there has been increasing conversation over homosexuality, if it's okay, and whether or not homosexuals should be able to get married.  I understand that it's something a lot of people have a personal stake in whether it pertains to their own sexual orientation or their religious views and that's ok.

It's your right as a human being to have your own opinion about things.  But to me, sometimes people have a ridiculous need to over emphasize their opinion one way or the other.  Personally I will disclose that I'm a heterosexual man, always have been and always will be. I don't understand what it's like to be homosexual nor do I see how someone would be attracted to another person of the same sex. But you know what? Who cares, it's not for me to understand and personally I think it's ok for people to like or love whoever it is that they want.  I have to many things in my own life to worry about than to worry about who another person loves or wants to take home in their personal life.  

And for those of you who do care a great deal about it, I'm sure you have more to worry about in your life as well so why are you putting so much energy into the love life and personal life of someone else?  You are neither judge, jury, nor executioner.  It's not for you to decide whether it's a sin or not and whether it's acceptable or not.  I'm quite sure that if you put as much energy into your own life as you do the personal life of others then your life would be that much better.  

I'm a firm believer that people should be able to do whatever makes them happy in life as long as they aren't hurting themselves or anyone else.  I have a rule for myself which states that if you aren't  paying my bills or hurting me or my family or anyone else then why should I care what you're doing nor is it necessary for me to understand why you do what you do.  There's been a lot of debate about whether gay people should be able to get married.  Guess what? I really don't care. If they want to, then let them.

Half the heterosexual people that argue against it are either divorced or unhappily married themselves so let me ask you this, if you can't even get marriage right as a heterosexual then who are you to lecture someone on how to be married whether they are a hetero or homosexual?  Get your life and relationship right before trying to tell another about theirs.  It amazes me how much of an argument this is and can be.  It shouldn't really be a conversation at all.  You do you and let someone else do them, eat what's on your own plate!  

There has even been debate on whether or not being gay is a choice.  Personally I think some people are born that way and some people choose.  With some people you can tell from a young age that there may be a chance that they are going to be gay and others I think choose because either they've had negative experiences with the opposite sex or have had some pivotal moment in life.  

Either way, none of that is my business nor should it be my concern.  What should be my only concern is what will make them happy and productive in this world.  And whatever that may be, as good hearted people, we should let them take whichever path helps them to be good people and happy individuals.  There are truly just to many other things in life to debate about.

We should be protesting poverty and corporate welfare. We should be protesting police brutality or an abysmal education system, not who marries who.  I hope that one day we can all get past this and debate other things in life.  I hope we can pass laws that focus more on the equity in society and in regards to humanity in general.  I hope that we can be better judges on where and when we expend our energy.  But above all else, I hope we can manage to take care of our own business first.
