To whom this concerns,
Dear readers. It has come to my attention that things are getting down right and utterly shameful when it comes to fighting for or supporting what many people belive in. A dear friend of mine Hushicho has been poorly mistreated at a Gay pride festival. An event that is supposed to be about love and equality.
This has me royally pissed. I can't believe that some people can be so cruel and narrow-minded. And they claim to have pride in their sexuality? I say no they don't if they treat their own like a used condom. And I will not apologize for voicing my thoughts. No matter how graphic.
What I want is for this mistreatment to stop. If you are with me and I hope you all are, please rant and rave and spread the word and support your fellow gays and lesbians. If I may be so bold as to include the ladies as well.
So let us all all rise up and let our voices be heard. Let them know you will not tolerate such treatment. I believe everyone has the right to be equal. No matter your race, skin color, or sexual preference.

Agreed... I might be heterosexual myself, but equality is important indeed, no matter what race, skin colour, sexual preference or religion. Ah, the day I'll stop ranting about equality is the day I'm being put in my grave. I haven't gone through much discrimination myself, but I've seen it happen to a lot of my friends in my life.
I talk to Hushicho sometimes, and it's a real shame to hear this happening to them (Not sure what their preferred pronouns are, sorry. ). On the rare occassions that we spoke, I've noticed Hushicho was a really nice person. I couldn't find the post on the Tumblr since this must have been a while ago, but they don't deserve to be treated like garbage at all.
Voicing your thoughts in a graphic way can even be a great way to be heard, if you ask me... I tend to be a little graphic in my opinions as well, and it gets me more negative attention then I'd like... But it means people paid attention to it. I feel like mistreatment like this in general doesn't get the public attention it needs. If more people notice, at some point people will act, and it will stop... At least, that's how I see it personally. Keep your voice strong, and keep up the good work.

You could say homosexuals, about that would include people of any gender.
I've noticed the homosexuals being very out of line to the bisexuals, but there's a lot of discrimination at every angle of our own community. You have to be in it a while to get how things work, and you'll be surprised it's just as disproportional as the rest of society. Men run everything, esply white, and no one can tell your ex.ori. just by looking at you. They also can't tell if you're trans or cis most of the time. There's a whople overview of our culture to see as to why even the "sub-cultures" are the way they are.
