Privilege is not thinking there is a problem because it is not a problem for you. Equal Rights is not Gay Privilege.
I was told that the LGBTQIA+ community was upset because not everyone liked them. That they were mad because they wanted everyone to be like them.
I think differently.
I think that people like me demand change because they know there are people who are being killed because they are not straight, or are not cisgender.
They know that mental illness is higher in kids in the community because of harassment. (And yes, mental illness can have a cause.)
That is why I demand change.
I am tired of people thinking we want Gay Privilege. We want the same rights as you. And you know what. Maybe we want the privilege to walk outside our room or our house without the ever growing fear of being killed or hurt.
And that is not a privilege we have, but it is one that we all should have. It should not be considered a privilege at all.
It is the bear minimum.
We are not mad that because not everyone likes us, we all know that people will hate us forever.
We just ask for the right to love who we want and for you to not kill us for it.
