135 (who?)
I chose this life.
I chose to set myself up as an Outcast.
I chose to hear my best friends
Tell me that I am going to hell.
I chose to hear the words Dyke and Faggot
Spat through scornful lips in my direction.
I chose to lose the love of my Family.
To hear them say that I was sick.
That I was wrong.
I chose to place the dreams
Of marrying the person I love
In a file marked as classified
By popular demand.
I chose to have the doors of my church
Slammed in my face
Because apparently, I am the exception to
"Love your fellow man."
I chose to be chastised
For holding hands in public.
I chose to look over my shoulder
At every corner
Afraid for my life simply because
I fell in love.
I chose this life.
I chose to be a Lesbian.
For anyone who has ever been told that homosexuality is a choice...

Fortunately, few of these reflect my own personal experiences. However the countless Members of the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) community that face these things, and often worse, every day cannot be ignored. No one, and I mean NO ONE, would chose to live through that. And the sooner the biggoted individuals of the world get that fact very clearly implanted into their heads, the sooner we can live on a peaceful planet. <3

There are 49 species of animals that have homosexuality, but only one has homophobics, can you guess what species it is?

Hopefully this will help to make people more tolerant, or help in general
