Little Meme

I actually didn't see an anti-homophobia meme... but this one made me very glad... so I'm spreading it.

Stolen from nosferatu_blue:

I am the mother who told her lesbian daughter to invite her girlfriend over for dinner.

I am the father who punished his son for calling you a fag.

I am the preacher who told my congregation that love, not hate, is the definition of a true follower of God.

I am the girl who did not learn the meaning of "homosexual" until high school but never thought to question why two men might be kissing.

I am the woman who argues (quite loudly and vehemently) with the bigots who insist that you do not have the right to marry or raise children.

We are the high school class who agrees, unanimously, along with our teacher, that love should be all that matters.

If you agree, repost this. Do it. You don't have to be afraid. You can handle it. You're stronger than you think.

Hate will not win.


(Yes, it's still important to know that homophobia creates sad scenarios and terrible injustice in the world, but it's not all sad. I like positive things. I need positive things, and seeing this made me smile.)
