its all well and good fighting for gay marriage and all but i dunno if i’m being cynical about the whole thing but i just feel as if the recent push to get it legalised is just a ploy to keep the gay community quiet, a way to subdue us so we don’t rise up and really make noise. it’s like let the gays get married so they’ll settle down and fade into heteronormativity and stop raging til four in the morning making people uncomfortable by making out on the streets etc it seems like a massive ruse just to put us back in the closet and i really don’t think kids who worry about coming out to their families are thinking about getting a ring i think they’re worried about the support network they’ll lose when they do - where they’re gonna live and where their financial support will come from once they do if it doesn’t have the happy ending a lot of these campaigns are gunning for. maybe it’s because that’s my mindset to the whole thing because i’m pretty sure my coming out won’t be well received and a lot of those issues will become my reality. that’s why i feel so suspicious when someone with influence starts advocating for our rights i feel that the only people who get shine are the ones fighting for the rights of one corner of the community while there are social workers out here doing good for homeless gay youth and that struggling when it comes to funding and all this money is going toward fighting for something not all gays want. it’s baffling.
