I've just read this and I want to write this.
Imagine if you will that you have a partner you’re with (Whether you’re straight, gay, bisexual, transgender, or pansexual) and you have an adopted child, and you have a nice house. You pay your taxes, mow the lawn, you go to work, make breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you watch tv together, you help your child with homework, you talk about what to do together on the holidays, you drop your kid to school, you clean up your house, you cuddle with your partner at night or on the couch while watching a movie, and you basically just enjoy living your life.
Now there are some people who would break in to your house, vandalize your belongings, put bigoted slurs everywhere (even for a straight couple), they threatened and frightened your child, you were harassed for being different. Your lives are at jeopardy and you called the police. They do nothing at all to help you. You spend sleepless nights wondering what to do to protect your partner and your child. No matter what you tried, you can’t move out and you can’t stop the crimes.
This sort of thing has happened and can happen to anyone. What’s important to realize is that we need to speak out, we need to speak up, and we need to teach people that we’re all human beings. I would also like to point out that the true culprit that threatens families, marriages, nations, and everything else is hate, not LGBT individuals. This has to stop, this has to be recognized!
