I had planned on making this an actual article but decided to do a post instead and just say what I feel about this instead of using all of these facts I have printed out beside me.
If you don’t know Tyler Clementi, please click here and then come back. Don’t worry, we’ll wait for you. *enter Jeopardy theme music*
Okay, these are only my views and blah, blah.
Now that we have that out of the way, the death of this beautiful, 18 year-old person has been haunting me since I first heard about it in September 2010. He was a college student at Rutgers University in New Jersey.
Tyler Clementi’s roommate caught him on video kissing another man in his dorm room on September 19th. Then this roommate was trying to set up a second viewing of Tyler with a man. That viewing never happened. Mr. Clementi reported this to the college and complained about his roommate. He requested a room change and punishment for his roommate.
On September 22nd, he jumped off the George Washington Bridge and his last words on Facebook were…
“Jumping off the gw bridge sorry”.
I don’t know much about his roommate and a female involved and never followed their cases because I don’t give a shit about them.
This hate with the LGBT community has me so fed up. Nobody is asking you to live that kind of lifestyle so why in the world are people preventing things like gay marriage? It’s nobody’s business what goes on in somebody’s love life.
If you scroll all the way down the page, you’ll see that I have a “Gay Is Okay” button. I have it there because it is okay. It’s better than okay. Okay? hehe
I just hope you remember Tyler Clementi. He had so much to give and it was taken away at such a young age.
I saw this on Pinterest and thought it was right on….
I used to be terrified of rocking the boat on my blog and have remained as neutral as I can be on the subject of politics and so forth. Then I thought “This is my blog, why the fuck am I worried about what I say”.
Well, I still don’t want to rock the boat but what the hell. Here it goes.
I’m not religious.
Politics piss me off.
I just want people to be able to live their lives the way they want and be happy.
I think the fact that gay marriage isn’t legal everywhere is disgusting.
I want my daughter to grow up to be a great person, whatever her views may be.
I still love you even if we don’t agree with these views.
