The other day, a few of my acquaintances and I were talking. We saw a good looking young man and one of the women said “It’s such a waste.” I asked what she was referring to. “It’s a waste that such a good looking man is gay.”
REALLY? How is it “a waste”? Do you think a life partner of his would think he was a waste? Or would you think that, if he lived a life of hiding who he is, it would not be a waste?
I don’t get it. The life of a gay person has no more or less value than a straight person. We are all humans. We all deserve a respectful loving relationship. We all deserve to be treated with patience and kindness.
Being who you are is NEVER a “waste.”
