homophobia

Posted on 2005.08.10 at 11:27
From lilevilsashie, although I think beatlette did this too...


I am the girl 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 one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack
that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be
able to walk again.
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, and 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 and 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 man who died when the paramedics 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 didn’t 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

Repost this if you believe that homophobia is wrong
