Shoving sexuality down your throat? O’rly?

Everyday there’s a poster of two heterosexual couples from films, only a few films have gay men or lesbians on a poster and they’re not well known.

Every day there is a straight couple holding hands, kissing in public, hugging each other, and even went out on dates. Not many gays and lesbians do this and they couldn’t do it because they’ll risk being attacked by bigots.

Holidays like Valentine’s Day only expect heterosexuals, no homosexuals.

There are rarely any hallmark cards that are gay.

Heterosexuality is strongly encouraged by religion, government and parents.

No one asks a man if he is seeing anyone, but asks if he has a girlfriend, implying that he must be straight because, God forbid, should he like other men. This applies to women as well.

If supposedly that gays, straights, bisexual, and transgender couples are all freely allowed to date openly, no one’s sexuality would be shoved down one’s throat.

If two men are walking side by side, holding hands, they’re just minding their business. If you think this is shoving their “gayness” down your throat, then a heterosexual doing that is shoving their “straightness” down their throats.

Being straight is expected of people therefore they are shoving their expectation down our throats. It’s clear to me that we’re not allowed to be ourselves; we’re supposed to appease the society, government, community, parents, and religion.

So I ask you, who’s shoving sexuality down’s one’s throat?
