Homophobia

As I said, this community is here so we can vent about things that annoy us. Here's my next one, also posted by a friend (not the abortion-bulletin friend, this one was posted by Sarah) and it makes me sick. Anyone who knows me will know why it makes me sick. Human is human, no matter what their sexual orientation.

the original bulletin:

I am the boy
who never finished high school,
because
I got called a fag
everyday


I am the girl
who was kicked out of her home
because
I confided in my mother
that I am a lesbian.


I am the prostitute
working the streets
because
nobody will hire
a transsexual woman.


I am the sister
who holds her gay brother
tight
through the
painful,
tear-filled
nights.


We are the parents
who buried
our daughter
LONG
before her time.


I am the man
who died alone
in the hospital
because they would not let my partner
of twenty-seven years
into the room.


I am the foster child
who wakes up
with nightmares
of being taken away
from the two fathers
who are the only loving family
I have ever had.
[[~I wish they could adopt me.~]]


I am
NOT
one of the lucky ones.
I killed myself
just weeks
before graduating high school.
It was simply
too much to bear.


We are the couple
who had the realtor
hang up
on us
when she found out
we wanted to rent
a one-bedroom
for two men.


I am the person
who never knows
which bathroom I should use
if I want to avoid
getting the
management
called on me.


I am the mother
who is not allowed
to even visit the children
I
bore,
nursed,
& raised.
The court says
I am an unfit mother
because I now
live with another woman.


I am the domestic-violence survivor
who found the support system
grow suddenly
cold & distant
when they found out
my abusive partner
is also a woman.


I am the domestic-violence survivor
who has
no
support system
to turn to
because I am male.


I am the father
who has
never
hugged his son
because I grew up
afraid to show affection
to other men.


I am the home-economics teacher
who always wanted to teach gym
until someone told me
that only
lesbians
do that.


I am the woman
who died
when the EMTs
stopped treating me
as soon as they realized
I was transsexual.


I am the person
who feels guilty
because I think
I could be a much better person
if I didnt have to always deal with
society hating me.


I am the man
who stopped attending church,
not because I don't believe,
but because
they closed their doors
to my kind.


I am the person
who has to hide
what this world
needs most,
love.


I am the person
ashamed
to tell my own friends
im a lesbian,
because
they constantly
make fun of them.


I am the boy
tied to a fence,
beaten to a bloody pulp
and left to die
because two straight men
wanted to
"teach me a lesson"



((I don't think any comment is necessary, do you? This pretty much speaks for itself.))
