I got triggered.
I’ve been keeping my mouth shut for quite a while now, but I personally think it’s time I say something.
So what exactly triggered me? Well, there was this video of LGBT acceptance in Sri Lanka which led me to refer the comments on it. Like you probably would have guessed by now, the comment section was filled with so much hate.
Here are a few of the comments,
“The bus should be driven straight to the nearest hospital for treatment.”
“Here comes the cultural destruction of Sri Lanka, let’s call it for what it is, let’s not disguise immorality with “acceptance” and “kindness” to normalize it.”
“Homosexuality is a disease of mind, same as pedophiles who so-called ‘prefer’ children. Unnatural shit getting promoted. That’s all what this is about. I have no problem with gays or LGBT wierdos doing what they do, in private. It’s that they try to shove their so called ‘pride’ in other people’s faces. Please just do your hideous things in closed rooms. And one thing, see, almost no one gave a single fuck about your rainbow butterfly chickenshit anyway.”
“A fast growing disease in western countries now in SL. WTF?”
“Yeaaaaaaaaakkk!!!! Homos…………. Who brought them here?”
First of all, just what? Are you kidding me?
Let me tell you what I believe in and support, loud and clear, before you start coming to conclusions like me being gay.
I do NOT support homosexuality. Maybe it’s because my religion doesn’t, maybe it’s because of my Sri Lankan culture, maybe I just don’t think it’s human nature, but that doesn’t matter. I just don’t.
Me not supporting homosexuality doesn’t mean I hate homosexuals. Why would I? Homosexuality doesn’t make people who they are! If you love people for their sexual preference, you’ve clearly got a huge problem there. You should love people for who they are, not for their sexual preference.
Me not supporting homosexuality basically means that I wouldn’t say “I support homosexuality”. Simply because I don’t, and I wouldn’t want to lie to myself or the world about anything. Even that, maybe I would later on. Just to show the world that I (being a Muslim) don’t hate homosexuals and they shouldn’t either. Who knows?
Hate is a weak emotion, a sign of failure.
This applies to any kind of hate at all. From hating people without hurting them (and their feelings) at all, all the way to a massive act of terror.
The funniest thing is how people love to point out other peoples “immorality”. For crying out loud, get your own morals sorted out first. If you were actually a moral person, you wouldn’t be pointing out others faults (or ‘so called faults’ in your mind) in the first place.
Yes, I do understand that you are “entitled to your own opinion”. However, if your opinion is one of hate, I recommend you respect yourself and respect others and keep your opinions to yourself. Seriously! You are not getting yourself anywhere by expressing hate.
Also, who are you to judge other people? Do you think you are God? Well, let me tell you something. You are not. Only God can judge us for what we do. So why do you even bother? Is there something you get out of it?
Come on people! We are only humans. We all do things, right and wrong. We all have different likes and dislikes. We all have different things we support. We are all different. There is only one thing which keep us alike. Our humanity.
Are we really going to let our humanity disappear? I hope not!
