You may or may not know this, but I grew up moving between Arizona and Utah my entire life. And most of the beliefs I was around growing up were that being gay is a choice, and marriage should be between and man and woman. And I am here to tell you, I don't feel that way, and I never have. Being gay is not a phase, it's not something you'll grow out of, and it's not a learned behavior. I'm sorry, but I honestly can't believe in the year 2012, people still think it's a choice and something that can be taught. I am also 100% for gay marriage, love is love. I really do think gay couples should have the same rights as everyone else does, people are people, and it really saddens me that some people believe they should somehow be on a lower level. We all deserve equal rights. I do know that a lot of people against gay marriage, aren't against gays and their rights, they just want marriage to stay between a man and woman, I understand that I really do.
But in a time where bullying and teenage suicides are at an all time high, I think it's important to point out, no matter what your beliefs, you shouldn't make someone feel ashamed to be who they are. You shouldn't turn your back or torment someone because they are gay. I just have a really hard time with people who are upset with someone for being gay, it really breaks my heart. We're all people you guys, and no matter what our beliefs are we need to treat each other with respect.
