I didn’t choose to be gay or who I am in love with. I was designed, created, built, BORN this way: to fall in love with women; to have a family with one; to share the responsibilities of children, bills, the home; to raise our children; to be decent human beings and to make a GOOD difference in the world.
I didn’t choose to be gay, just like you didn’t choose to be straight. You were just designed, created, built, and BORN that way— to love the other side of the spectrum.
I didn’t choose to be gay. I didn’t choose the hardships that go along with it in an unforgiving world. To be verbally spat upon by my children’s doctor, lawyers, grocery clerks, fry cooks, senators, evangelicals, and anyone who is anti-gay or homophobic, or whatever the term of the day is.
What I did choose was to live a life in truth, rather than a lie, to teach my children that love is love is love, and that it doesn’t matter what religion, race or orientation you are, you are still human, still a person, still worth loving, and deserving to love.
I didn’t choose to be gay, cause, ‘baby, I was born this way.’
I am not a criminal. I don’t deserve to be beaten to death, bloodied, and broken, because my other half and I are the same gender. Save your needle for murderers and rapists.
I pay taxes, my children go to school, I clean my home, I mow the lawn, I work, and I save money for my children’s college tuitions.
I Am Equal.
We are the same. Imagine being told it is wrong to climb in bed every night with the person of your dreams, the love of your life, the ying to your yang.
Because that is what we are told.
"Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets." Matthew 7:12
