So I saw on t’s blog that 20th April is the day of silence and I thought I’ll share something with you guys. Also, give t’s blog a visit to find out more about the ‘day of silence’.
So over the past few weeks I have noticed a trend, and I thought I’ll talk about it. Well its about gay paranoia! What is up with that?
Some of my guy friends have been complaining that they don’t want to hang around gay people. Firstly no one is forcing you to and secondly if you don’t want to then just don’t. gay or straight what is the difference really? Do you judge a musician who is gay and say your music is gay because you are gay! pretty absurd right? then why judge people?
I have a ton of gay friends and they are some of the nicest people i have ever met. They don’t hit on straight guys and they have a standard too you know.
What the hell do you mean when you say keep the gays away. Do gay people say keep the straight away? Pretty ridiculous if you think about it.
Sex and Gender are two completely separate things, and if you judge gay people then apparently you wouldn’t know you uneducated oaf!
In the context of Singapore a lot of people have been coming out of the closet, which I think is a great thing because there is no point living a fake existence trying to please society, if you are that way then so be it *lady gaga’s born this way is playing in my head right now!* However the public display of affection is a totally separate issue altogether. I do not like to see people drenching each other in saliva, be it gay or straight, but hey that is just my opinion!
Furthermore to my gay friends, I love and respect you guys. Peace.

While I can’t support the gay lifestyle, I do agree that judging them in that way (not wanting to be around them, making fun,…) is uncool indeed.
And I respect your point of view 🙂 x
I’m happy that my boys are growing up in a day and age when being gay is no longer so taboo. Although of course many opponents still exist, and we have a long way to go, it is nice to see positive images of gay couples on TV–“Modern Family”, “Grey’s Anatomy”, etc. Homosexuality will always exist. It has from early times and it will in the future. It is not a lifestyle “choice”. It’s time the world get over this bigotry and put all that energy to better use. Nice post.
You are spot on with this! Thank you 🙂 x
Thanks for the pingback, Love, and lovely post to boot =]
I’m looking forward to the day when, instead of spending time talking about “gay issues” and “straight issues,” we’re just talking about issues. It will be only then that we’ll have a chance at resolving them.
Peace back at cha!
Thank you for the post you did! I had no idea about the day of silence. Awesome concept but yes I agree I hope that all of us can move beyond this 🙂 xoxo
As a certified queer, I thank you. 🙂 Amazing though, it is always straight folk who remind me of Day of Silence, a pox upon me for the forgetfulness.
Funny thing about not hanging around gay folk… they likely are and don’t know it – yet.
Even though this is a great concept, I really do hope that there will be a day when the LGBT community will be given the same acceptance level as heteros. It’s just sad to see that some people are so narrow minded.
It’s so funny because I grew up around both gay and straight people and never thought it was an issue. Same goes for skin color. I had so many people in my life with so many different skin tones that I never imagined a world where that was not the norm.
We are all people. We are all different and we are all the same.
you are awesome! Your message warmed my heart 🙂 Thanks! x
I’m with t. There are so many other things we need to discuss, I’ll be glad when we can stop looking at color, gender, and sex. Or am I just dreaming?
🙂 I hope that day won’t be far! x
I read about this in a post i got a few days ago, the girl had a day of silence at work except when customers came in.
Interesting! Do you have a link to the post? 🙂
I’ll try my best to find it.
I read your comment on Pete’s, your pc could be hi-jacked.
Can you name all your security items.
Name my security items? Sorry I am a bit lost here.
You said you were being sent to another site at times.
hey! Yes I was! How do I get rid of that? But it was only with Pete’s blog
Your PC could be hi-jaked or a keylogger installed by malware.
Can you name your anti-virus, antispyware and antimalware apps.
I can give you good ones.
I am not really using anything :X cos mine is a MacBook but I think I should install something! Thank you for your help 🙂
Its not worth your while because so few people use a mac that virus and spyware makers always go for the harder things, but if you want to install something go here.
Use no.1, 2, and 3
Four and five are anti-virus but ONLY use ONE of them, you could remove them all again if you wish, but i think you should keep no. 1, its useful.
thank you! You are awesome! 😀
One of my best friends is gay so I support this!
And I cut my hair short, skype me soon! hahaha
hahah yes! How about your Monday night? 😀
I had a pink cupcake for lunch today, would that class as a gay lunch?
hahah if that’s gay, then let’s be gay together *patiently waits for the pink cupcake* 😀
I shall have to get one shipped over to you 😀
I have so many things to say here but i’ll try to keep it short 😉 First, totally agree with you, [and about public affection] and agree with t’s comment. And love your sign here about gay marriage. So true. That this is even an issue has always irked me.
Disclaimer – While I know there are hetro couples who truly love each other and health insurance becomes the deciding factor that they get married, not THE reason …. To quote myself LOL: “Same sex marriage has never been a threat to traditional marraige. The true threat to “tradtional marraige” is homewrecking women looking to steal established/older men for their health insurance.” I’ve seen this happen!
And last, the Methodist Church used to have a great quote about accepting everyone, but I have little to no memory these days 😦 so can’t share ;( Bummer. But it was good and would’ve been perfect. 😉
hahah I will wait till you find the quote then :p
I agree with your thoughts on same sex marriages. Also, home wrecking women are retarded! I don’t get why people want what ‘belongs’ to someone else.
*hi 5* finally someone agrees with me that public affection can be……
