Dear Russia (among others) — It’s not okay.

“Our brothers and sisters in Russia among many other places need our voice and our support now more than ever when their voice – having one alone – can cost them their freedom, or their lives. Just because of their sexuality. That’s basically like making something illegal and less worthy just because of the color of your skin. Sounds familiar?” – Christian Vincent.

I was about to say “‘Nuff Said” and leave it at that. But somehow I feel that it’s not enough. Excuse me if I sound like – or seem like a part of – a broken record in this post. At least I’ll spare you of “We Shall Overcome”.

Know your history. Will your descendants be looking back at you the way that you look back at your ancestors during times of slavery? Holocaust? Other forms of oppression? What do you truly think of oppression; is it really okay to muscle human beings this way? To quiet down subjects like this? Really, it’s details, trades, of a human being that are so simple, so basic, yet so significant. These are some of the things that may be shaping or partially define someone, but not the least making them less of a person.

It may seem like the right – or the only – thing to do when you’re in the moment. But think about it: haven’t you ever been feeling like an idiot in hinesight? Yup, me too. But not on that scale. Use your head. Some things need to be – HAVE to be – thought of twice or more.

I may be a Christian by faith, but it’s worth noting that it doesn’t mean that I’m against homosexuality. As long as mutual consent, responsability, and mutual respect are involved, homo-, bi-, and transsexuality are just as valid as heterosexuality – and vice versa.
