I really want to write a children’s book in the old-school Disney style with castles and enchantment and whatnot. Except I want to write it about a Prince and a commoner boy who fall in love and get married. Like Cinderella, but with two boys. Because I see nothing wrong with that, and no one should. The way to stop people from becoming prejudiced in the future is to teach them at a young age that there is nothing wrong with two people of the same gender falling in love and getting married. I know there would be a hella lot of controversy, but I really want to write it and I think it would be so cute.
Anonymous said: Hello there. I was wondering what are your views on homosexuality. As well as if you are religious how does that affect your views.
Oooo personal question! Fun!
(Though the last time I got an anon ask it was actually from a friend of mine so I wouldn’t be surprised if I know who you are.)
So I am straight. I love boys very much. <3 But I am completely pro-homosexuality. I think that people are people and love is love, and that love is such a rare thing that it should be respected, not regulated. No one has a right to tell anyone who to love because love is none of the government’s business. I can’t stand homophobia, or people who claim that being gay is a “phase” or can be “cured”. I have identified myself as a straight girl, and others identify themselves as gay. It’s a personal matter, and it shouldn’t become such an issue. Love who you want.
Also, Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka are my favourite celeb couple.
I am not religious whatsoever. I don’t believe in god. I never have, and I don’t ever expect to. I don’t consider myself to be an “atheist” or anything like that, because I see those titles as still having a belief in something, even if it’s the belief that there is nothing to believe in. I just don’t have a faith. I live my life how I choose and take what comes at me. I do, however, have a lot of core values and a strong sense of right and wrong. But I don’t affiliate any of my beliefs with a faith. I have decided these things on my own and for myself. I try to be a good person for the sake of it, and not because I feel like anyone is watching over me, or because I have anyone to impress. I am in no way saying that that’s how religious people govern their choices. I’m just saying it has no influence on mine.
On that note, I think there needs to be a separation between church and state. Religion has no business in government. Though I am not religious, I do think, like my opinions on homosexuality, people can do what they want. Believe in whatever god you’d like. Though I’d appreciate it if you don’t try to force your religion on me. And though I think it’s great that the world is very cultured in terms of religion, I have a strong belief that religion should not play a part in any governmental decisions. Not everyone believes in the same god, and some people, like me, don’t believe in any god. So when it comes to running a country or province or state or city, religion is not a justification for anything. And to relate that to homosexuality: I live in Canada where gay marriage is legal, and I am proud of that. But in relation to both the current republican debates, and the issues with legalizing gay marriage in every state, religion is not a valid argument. You can’t make it illegal for two gay individuals to get married simply because you claim the bible says it isn’t okay. You know what isn’t okay? Stripping people of their rights because of something written in a religious book.
Not to mention I just disagree with needing a license aka permission to get married. How stupid is that?
Wow that was a long answer. Sorry, I have a lot of opinions. :P
