Life in the Fail Lane: Even when I try to be nice...
...I get screwed.
Some people seriously can't accept other opinions.
As most of you know by now, I'm Catholic. I don't support things that go against my faith and morals, which means I don't support homosexuality as a whole.
However, I'm nice to almost everyone I meet even if I don't agree with what they do, gays included. And I never go out of my way to belittle or demean someone when I disagree with something they do... unless they're an ass to me first; then it's fair game!
But someone immediately assumed the worst about me before getting to know me.comments.deviantart.com/1/8046…
Am I the only one who sees the double standard here? This person's basically saying in summary...
You're wrong about this and should change. But don't you dare try to change gay people!
Obviously they didn't say it in those words, but that was the general summation of their conversation.
It's pretty hypocritical honestly, since I've never told others to change to suit me.
Now, people can disagree with me. That's fine. As long as they're courteous, we can get along. But this one's putting words in my mouth, which is not cool.
I have never looked down at someone for being gay. I've never tried to change anyone to suit my ideals. I've never injured someone for being gay. I don't even know how this person could assume that over an opinion.
Just because I don't agree with that expression of love doesn't mean I hate or disregard people who practice it. Seriously people... if you're so open-minded, don't assume that about me!
I think I did a decent job of being polite when I explained myself to this person, despite wanting to rip them a new asshole for the idiotic assumptions they made about me. (I bit my e-lip a lot when replying to this person.)
I could totally understand if I'd said something outright hateful about gay people that essentially demeaned or insulted them. But I never did. I explained myself and my views in the best way I could, without insults or unkind remarks. And yet I got accused of being "hateful," "hurtful," etc.
I'm just doing the best I can to live my life the way I feel is right. Since when did that make me the villain?
I don't go around and tell others that I think they're wrong, so why is it okay when it happens to me or others who feel similarly to me?
Oh wait! All Christians are scum and must be disrespected even when they're respectful and courteous to others!
Anyway kids, that's all for now! Take care and God bless!
