- Being true to oneself isn’t wrong, even it means being a proud LGBTQ member
- We are all human beings in this world but each of us is unique and deserve some respect
- All of us have the right to live freely and be happy with what we choose to be
In this new generation, we are opening ourselves to accept LGBTQ community members. But then, we cannot just overlook some people who have closed their hearts and minds and keep judging them because of their gender and/or identity.
A Facebook page, “Kinilaw TV,” posted a screenshot photo of Bret Hart Parallag Tungpalan’s post with a caption “Pauwi ka na galing work tapos makakakita ka ng ganito, Sarap pag untugin. Sayang ang pagkalalake,” referring to two young men holding hands while walking.
Kinilaw TV reacted by saying “Nothing’s wrong in being part of the LGBTQ community. What’s wrong is judging people and condemning them for what they are.”
Being true to oneself isn’t wrong, even it means being a proud LGBTQ member. We are free to choose who we want to be but still, we cannot please everyone and there are lots of judgemental people; who continue rejecting the LGBTQ community.
And the post continued to say, “We people should respect each other’s gender preference lalo na’t wala namang ginagawang masama yung tao. Kung homophobic ka, you better shut up kasi may nasasaktang damdamin.”
Nothing's wrong in being part of the LGBTQ community. What's wrong is judging people and condemning them for what they…
“Homophobic” is a term used for people who have, or show, a dislike against a homosexual individual. Indeed, we are all human beings in this world but each of us is unique and we have to respect each other’s differences, especially when they haven’t done anything to hurt other people. And by simply judging one LGBTQ individual on a social media post, you can hurt an entire community. Just like the unwitting duo, none of us wants to be judged by a simple act, without even knowing the person very well.
Kinilaw TV has declared that they don’t have members that are part of the LGBTQ community but still they know how to respect gender equality.
Before we talk and judge someone, we must first put ourselves in their shoes to be able to understand how they feel. All of us have the right to live freely and be happy with what we choose to be. Respect is what we need to live harmoniously, and in embracing other people’s uniqueness.
