Let Gays be. One’s Sexuality is not an “Achievement” nor a “Disqualification”

Look at the pic below. Wouldn’t it be better to say “I am proud of my son. He happens to be Gay as well”?

There is nothing to be proud or not be proud of someone for his/her sexual preference or love. A person is worth respecting for who he or she is. Sexuality should NOT be a criteria in that.

But this kind of slogans make the wars of ideologies – Hate Gays Brigade and others – even sharper and totally nonsensical.

So just as I have little respect for those who target gays for what they do in their own privacy, I have little respect for such sloganeering which eulogizes sexual preferences as a way to confront the “Hate Gays Brigade”. Same difference.
