Hey guys! What’s up?
Before I begin this week topic, I should let you that we didn’t go to Port Dickson last weekend because my uncle passed away on the exact same day we were suppose to go. Luckily we haven’t started driving when we got the news. I hope he’s in a better place.
Alright, stop with the sadness.
So this week I’m gonna talk about something that I had never really talks about with everyone. And since this topic has been one of the main subjects of conversation for almost the whole world, so I thought, why not share my opinion about it.
Hint : It’s not about Donald Trump.
Well, not actually my opinion on that exact topic but it’s about something that is related to that matter.
Okay, enough hinting!
So, a few days ago...well, actually a few months ago, someone said something more or less like this, “If you’re being friends with a gay guy, it’s possible that you are too.”
I totally disagree with what he said. However, at that moment I didn’t say anything, I just made like awkward expression and feel annoyed, because I wasn’t finished processing those sentences in my head. Not only after a few days that I finally know what I should’ve respond (typical me).
Honestly I was quite surprised when I heard that. Not just because of what he said but because it came out from a person who’s not straight. I’m not judging or saying that it’s okay if it comes out from a straight person and not if it’s from the LGBT community, but I just thought that they would be more understanding and more supportive that a straight person is accepting and being friends with them. Isn’t that what the LGBT community want? People accepting who they are? I mean, isn’t that what everyone wants?
So yeah, it happened.
So what I should’ve respond is by saying, “Go f*** yourself!”
No, I’m just kidding.
What I should’ve said is that not every friendship will turn out with them being the same person. I mean, if their friends are smoking weed, doesn’t mean they smoke weed too. And if their friends have long hair, doesn’t mean they will have long hair too.
Yes, probably most of the time it happen with all the pier pressure and stuff but not all the time. Not all people will follow what their friends do. Not all people feel the need to be the same as their friends. They might have the same thinking or opinion but that doesn’t mean they have the same attitude or in this case, the same sexual interest.
There are a lot of reasons why someone being friends with the LGBT community, maybe because the LGBT community are nice to that person, or maybe they have been friends since they were kids, or maybe they’re either bloggers or something. So it doesn’t always mean they are in the LGBT community just because their friends are.
I know that probably a lot of people might disagree with me and its okay because you have the right to have your own opinion and I respect that because the reason I’m sharing this is not because I wanna change your perspective, I just want to let you know not everything is black and white. A person being friends with a teacher doesn’t mean he/she is a teacher too. A guy being friends with a gay guy doesn’t mean he’s gay too.
So, to end this week’s topic I just wanted to say to that guy and to everyone whether you’re straight or in the LGBT community, to stop judging people through their friends. Most of the time you might be right but there’s possibility that you might be wrong.
So this week I wanna know what is your opinion about this? Have you faced this kind of situation? If you have, how did you handle it?
