We have all been through this at one time or another and that is ignorance. No matter if you’re a lesbian, bi, gay, transgendered, intersexed or even a cis-gendered person (A male or a female who was born in their gender and or sex and is completely content with themselves), you have had some form of ignorance bestowed upon you.
It’s not comfortable and is something that tremendously needs to be addressed, for example; If you’re a gay male, a ignorant person may come up and say, “Hey! Do you take it up the butt?”, likely your first chain reaction is to be lost for words and you’re likely going to be standing there awkwardly…But in your mind you’re going to be thinking, “Why is this person asking me something so personal? Do they have any decency?! And of all times and places…Why now?”
My train of thought is, why is it their business? Their not your sexual partner, neither are they someone close to you, it’s sickening and rude, it’s like asking a cis-gendered male, ‘Hey! Do you do your girlfriend in the front?”, it’s just a question that is taboo and not meant to be asked…At least not publicly and in such a crude manner.
You may be asking me why am I bringing up this resentful topic, it’s because throughout my entire course in this life I have had myriad amounts of ignorant occasions come up and even to this very day I could probably retain about half of these vehement moments and it makes me depressed and isolated sometimes and I want you the COMMUNITY, the FUTURE to know that hope is beaming up and through this petrifying time of struggle and chaos…Ignorance is starting to dwell down and people of all parts of life are just accepting people for who they are and not even wanting to ask them questions, they JUST ACCEPT THEM and that’s something that all of us should remember and practice on a daily basis because you may never know, there might be a person sitting next to you on a train, a bus, a plane or you might even pass them by on the street and they might need a friend or someone there to cheer them up through their sorrows and pain and you might just be the person to help with that — But remember, don’t be ignorant and really try to listen to their woes because in the end, they may help you back against ignorant people, in this small, small world — Written by velvetheaven
