When I was a kid
I thought that ‘gay’ was just an insult
And as a result
I cried when a big kid called me it.

When I was a tween
My teacher said she was worried about two guys
Who always locked eyes
And I didn’t get why she was wrong to say it.

When I was a teen
I went on the internet and found out it all
When I started to fall
For both boys and girls and I didn’t get why.

When I was a teen
I made out with a girl from my school
It was pretty cool
But I was too scared to tell anyone.

When I’m an adult
I’m gonna tell my kids that it’s okay
To be bi or trans or gay
Or any other orientation
Because, well, it is.

You are one of the most inspiring people I've ever seen. All your beliefs I agree with 110%. You believe in so much equality and are such an open-minded positive person it's contagious. I'm only 14 but I still understand, and have experienced, some of the things you talk about. I live in the south of the USA, where people are incredibly "conservative" and have very strong opinions. Not everyone is like that, but you are piratically shunned if you are not religious, if you don't play a sport, if you don't have certain qualities you're expected to have, even if you don't support the LGBT community. I used to think "gay" was an insult too, and one time in class last year I was talking to these guys about how gay couples are the cutest thing and they thought I was insane and brought up how the "Bible said it wasn't OK for 2 people of the same gender to be together" and I said "So? Who cares? If people are in love does it even matter what the Bible thinks?"...big mistake. They absolutely flipped. They got other guys involved in the conversation and it was just horrible because I felt so bad for brushing the Bible aside like it didn't mean anything. Today, I consider myself an atheist. I don't believe in the Bible, but I am still open-minded to the possibility of there being an afterlife. 
 
What is your opinion on religion, Gods, and the Bible?

No problem! :tighthug:
 
Me too! It was hard at first but I couldn't accept there being a God, but where I live people are extremely religious so I don't freely express my opinion. I also respect everyones' view so ugh you're so cool I wish everyone here is like you :XD:

Hi there, I just wanted to inquire about the reason you 'couldn't accept there being a God,' because as a Christian it makes me curious. I would like to hear your opinion since you are obviously respectful of others and won't go all crazy on me as some people do.

I would like to say that, as far as I know, it is the act of people of the same gender having sex that is a sin. But so is stealing and murder and lying etc. But loving another person of the same gender, the emotional part, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

I just wish more 'Christians' would stop being so judgmental and hypocritical and remember that our beliefs are centered on LOVE.

I adore this poem, by the way <3 <3
