When Are We Going To Learn?

When are we going to learn compassion, empathy, understanding, and love? When are we going to work together as a community, instead of behaving like entitled snots who are “better” than our neighbors. When are we going to learn that we need the “village”? Not just the parts that that are convenient to us, but the whole damn village.

We have ʜᴜᴍᴀɴ ʙᴇɪɴɢs that were murdered this weekend because of their sexual orientation. I don’t care if they are gay human beings, lesbian human beings, transgender human beings… they are simply human beings and they did not deserve to be murdered because some guy decided that he didn’t like their sexual orientation.

We “worry” about which bathroom transgender people are going to use. They worry about being murdered for the activities they choose to participate in behind closed doors, that are quite frankly ɴᴏɴᴇ ᴏғ ᴀɴʏʙᴏᴅʏ’s ᴅᴀᴍɴ ʙᴜsɪɴᴇss. It is offensive that anyone in the LGBTQ community should have their private, intimate lives be a matter of public discussion.

We “worry” that transgender people are going to sexually abuse our little girls while we let entitled white athletes off with a slap on the wrist when they are ᴄᴏɴᴠɪᴄᴛᴇᴅ of felony sexual assault charges. Seriously… What the fuck?

We need to stop blaming sexual orientation, drinking, guns, and bathrooms for our problems. People are the damn problem. If we don’t begin making changes within ourselves and within our communities, it’s only going to get worse. We are our own worst enemies. It is time to change that.
