Happy pride month! Before 2020 hits us with another surprise I might as well make the wait worth your while. I want to teach you the ABCs of LGBTQIA, (PS thats the acronym for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersexual and Asexual). I call them the battalion because I feel like they are always at war,with themselves,their parents,the government and even you. I could go on and on about how Bill clinton gave the battalion a go ahead in 1999, and then George Bush called it off in '02, only to be revived by Obama in 2012 and now is being trumpled on by Trump. I would want to also enlighten you on how the first pride parade was held in 1970 but, we got bigger fish to catch.
I tend to compare pride month (june) to black history month(february). It is a crying shame that a highly educated,woke and revolutionalised society, needs to be constantly reminded to treat human beings with the respect and dignity that they deserve irrespective of their sexuality or origin. Before you claim ignorance or yell 'we don't do that here' I have scribbled some unwritten rules.No, this is not a disorder, they do not want your sympathy, they prefer you to be a normal human being around them. They do not want special treatment.
They do not have to explain themselves so stop questioning. They carry the highest form of energy/vibe, call it what you want.And no, it is not trendy to be gay or bi.Yes, there are christians among them, yes they do pray. No,they do not want threesomes with your girlfriend nor do they care if you are okay with lesbians but you detest gays. They are bamboozled by the fact that fornication, gossiping, drinking and even murder is okay, but being gay is where you draw the line? come on! Do not tell a member of the community that they should try have 'normal' sex and see how it goes. Do not try to 'change' them.
They don't want you to pay for their therapy. They do not need you to pray for them to see the light. They are the light, from the likes of Michael Angelo to Alexander Mcqueen to Gianni Versace even to Wentworth Miller (Alias Michael scofield from Prison break) to Ellen DeGeneres from the ellen show. Big names eyy!... Well, they all are part of the Battalion. They literally are the pillars of the creative and entertainment industry.
I am not a parent but, if you are one I got one thing to say to you.You have one job... to love, that's it!!! No more no less than your other children. They are not a bad example to the kids,you actually are for drawing unnecessary lines. No, you are not a failure for bearing a 'different' kid. You should be on the frontline with them for them...Gabriel Union and Dwayne Wade style.
No, it is not a modern problem. It is not actually a problem. It has been there since time immemorial (Your history teacher won't tell you this in school)... heck! it is captured in the Bible. Please keep your rapture theories to yourself because let's face it, no one really knows what's gonna go down. And no one appointed you judge.
They could be your friends ,your relative your schoolmate and anytime you feel like overstepping check yourself! What gives you the audacity or the entitlement to think that you are a better sinner than they are? I am not imploring you to like them either, if you cannot stand them, be about your business . LET THEM BE!!!
This article is dedicated to the battalion, you are heard, you are seen, your existence matters and keep doing you boo.
