Heterosexual Awareness Month: Homophobes Own July
Apparently, Heterosexuals have an awareness month, as if people weren't already "aware".
If heterosexuals can have an awareness month, why can't we have Ignorant Narrow Minded Bigoted Asshole Awareness Month?
According to their Facebook page, Heterosexual Awareness Month is a month-long annual observance of straight people, and the growing struggle of the rights and related civil rights put in jeopardy. It is observed during July every year.
The first annual Heterosexual Awareness Month began this year, July 2012. Straight Pride Day was held on July 6th, 2012, where followers of Heterosexual Awareness Month wore black.
I, however, was not aware that there was any violence or animosity against straight people. Illegalizing gay marriage and gay relationships and gay bars is not going to stop people from being gay.
I'm afraid to search for Same Race Relationship Awareness Month for fear I might actually find something.
Do you know why people are against homosexuality? Because they are afraid of it. Homophobes are afraid to see a different lifestyle in front of them. It wasn't until 1967 that interracial marriages were legalized because people were afraid of it.
Giving someone else equal rights does not infringe or take rights away from you. It just makes it illegal for you to enforce your prejudice or hate. It's that simple.
