People Are People

People’s sexuality are still challenged to this day, I don’t think you will ever be able to find a person that is satisfied with everyone’s chosen sexuality. As the world has become more accepting of different sexualities across all nations, more and more people seem to have different sexual orientations e.g. lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, transgender. There are so many more varieties of people’s sexual preferences and it amazes me that so many alternative things could be thought of. Everyone has different tastes to one another which is what a lot of homophobic people must learn, understand and appreciate.

“Love knows no limits”. Love doesn’t need to be controlled by the law. I think that as long as whatever relationship you are in with another person, whether male or female, as long as you two are happy and have a healthy relationship together, there is no reason as to why people should be against it. Gay or straight, everybody deserves to be happy. We are all humans, meaning that we are entitled to our human rights. “Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.” There is more to this article but I would like to point out that everyone is entitled to their own rights and freedoms, the list shows what we as the human race are entitled to, homophobic people shouldn’t take that right away from anyone. In fact, no human should be allowed to invade anyone else’s rights. LGBT rights are human rights too. Marriage is also a human right, “men and women of full age, without any limitation due to race, nationality or religion, have the right to marry and to found a family.” Why should the law be different for a gay, lesbian, bisexual etc person, we are all equal humans. Aren’t we?

I’m not gay but I do support gay rights because I believe in freedom of love. I believe that just because someone else prefers something different to us then why should they be discriminated against. We all have our different opinions on other things in life so why should sexuality be just a big argument, their choices aren’t harming you or causing you any distress. They shouldn’t be pressured by society and the media because they have a different view on something.

Unfortunately, same sex marriage still isn’t legal everywhere in the world, but people are continuously fighting for that fight and I hope that one day, people will be able to live in a world where everyone is equal.

I hope that this may have given you a different perspective on gay rights and that maybe you’ll perhaps think about other people’s sexuality and that you shouldn’t judge them.

Remembrance Day

Yesterday was Remembrance Day also known as Armistice, Memorial or Poppy Day. In case, you didn’t know why the day is significant it is because it is the day that we remember all the armed forces who died for us after World War One and who continuously fight for our freedom and human rights.

Across the world, it is celebrated, every country hold a celebration differently. In the United Kingdom, we wear the poppy, donate money to the Royal British Legion which is a charity that offers help and welfare to the serving and ex-service men, women and their families. Countries across the world have the two minutes of silence to remind ourselves of what the soldiers then and now do for us and their country. The silence is held on the eleventh month on the eleventh day of the eleventh hour.

I think it’s important to remember now how much the world has changed and evolved since the First World War. For example, equality, a lot women join the armed forces nowadays which I think is commendable of them because unfortunately there are still some sexist people in this world. Honestly, sometimes at school, boys still comment about girl’s actions like if we can’t do something correctly, throw or kick a ball as good as them. They then normally comment “you throw/kick like a girl”, “it’s just because you’re a girl”. It annoys me so much because we are just as capable as them, us girls can show them up. I would love to prove how strong and independent we are as a gender.

Today, I thought about why we only think about the troops for one day out of the three hundred and sixty five we have because the people that have left their families, friends and lives at home go out to fight for their nation, which contains a large quantity of people that they’ll never meet. I think these people deserve more than we actually think.

Whenever we have our silence, which is normally at school, there is always at least one inconsiderate person who speaks or laughs. I don’t understand why this person or group of people cannot keep their trap shut for two minutes and to think about the men and women who have fought or who are fighting for us.

This has been a little bit of a rant but I think it is important to write about these kind of things.

As always, thanks for reading.
