This essay expresses one's opinion about the LGBT world. What if one likes "him" or "her"? Are they normal? Am I normal?
It is quite long and very "Chinese-styled", hence a little bit hard to translate. Nevertheless, it is written neatly and has got some vocabularies related to sexuality. I would suggest you read the original essay written in Chinese.
What if one likes a boy?
What if one likes a girl?
How about being with him?
How about being with her?
A man-woman relationship is normal, and a same-sex relationship is not normal? When they heard the word "homosexuality", if not start thinking of mental disorder, then they will start thinking these poor people were abused when they were a child and got brainwashed like this. Is this traditional-secular world simply too old-fashioned? Especially, the person who said that "homosexuality is a contagious virus that needs to be hated and keep apart and rejected and tied up and exterminated", I think they are the ones who are sick.
Or is it possible that they are afraid their "heterosexual antibodies" are not strong enough to resist the "homosexual virus"?
I am not rejecting other people's opinions; I know that I should not discriminate any opinions. It is just that I really hate this discrimination. I, you, him, homosexuals, and heterosexuals are not different in all aspects, except in sexual orientation. They like a person naturally, they love a person naturally, just like us. Forcing them to like the opposite sex is the one that is unnatural. It is very okay if you can't understand this view since it is also unnatural for me to force you to accept this view, but you can't just blindly hate and discriminate against them. I have met a few homosexuals, some are very kind, some are very vicious, just like heterosexuals.
Homosexuality is not a disease, so there is no way to "cure" or "infect". Heterosexuality will not turn into homosexuality, vice versa. You cannot change homosexual's sexual orientation by showering them with heterosexual films. Moreover, they have entered a heterosexual environment since childhood. If such a long-term heterosexual environment still cannot change their sexual inclination, how can anyone think that homosexuality can be cured?
A person's life may have loved the opposite sex and may have loved the same sex, too. But the point is "falling in love with one person," regardless of gender.
It is simply falling in love with ㄊㄚ, naturally.
