The following is a very strong and moving letter written by the mother of a gay son in Vermont........
Many letters have been sent to the Valley News concerning the homosexual menace in Vermont. I am the mother of a gay son and I've taken enough from you good people. I'm tired of your foolish rhetoric about the "homosexual agenda" and your allegations that accepting homosexuality is the same thing as advocating sex with children. You are cruel and ignorant. You have been robbing me of the joys of motherhood ever since my children were tiny.
My firstborn son started suffering at the hands of the moral little thugs from your moral, upright families from the time he was in the first grade. He was physically and verbally abused from first grade straight through high school because he was perceived to be gay.
He never professed to be gay or had any association with anything gay, but he had the misfortune not to walk or have gestures like the other boys. He was called "fag" incessantly, starting when he was 6.
In high school, while your children were doing what kids that age should be doing, mine labored over a suicide note, drafting and redrafting it to be sure his family knew how much he loved them. My sobbing 17-year-old tore the heart out of me as he choked out that he just couldn't bear to continue living any longer, that he didn't want to be gay and that he couldn't face a life without dignity.
You have the audacity to talk about protecting families and children from the homosexual menace, while you yourselves tear apart families and drive children to despair. I don't know why my son is gay, but I do know that God didn't put him, and millions like him, on this Earth to give you someone to abuse. God gave you brains so that you could think, and it's about time you started doing that.
At the core of all your misguided beliefs is the belief that this could never happen to you, that there is some kind of subculture out there that people have chosen to join. The fact is that if it can happen to my family, it can happen to yours, and you won't get to choose. Whether it is genetic or whether something occurs during a critical time of fetal development, I don't know. I can only tell you with an absolute certainty that it is inborn.
If you want to tout your own morality, you'd best come up with something more substantive than your heterosexuality. You did nothing to earn it; it was given to you. If you disagree, I would be interested in hearing your story, because my own heterosexuality was a blessing I received with no effort whatsoever on my part. It is so woven into the very soul of me that nothing could ever change it. For those of you who reduce sexual orientation to a simple choice, a character issue, a bad habit or something that can be changed by a 10-step program, I'm puzzled. Are you saying that your own sexual orientation is nothing more than something you have chosen, that you could change it at will? If that's not the case, then why would you suggest that someone else can?
A popular theme in your letters is that Vermont has been infiltrated by outsiders. Both sides of my family have lived in Vermont for generations. I am heart and soul a Vermonter, so I'll thank you to stop saying that you are speaking for "true Vermonters."
You invoke the memory of the brave people who have fought on the battlefield for this great country, saying that they didn't give their lives so that the "homosexual agenda" could tear down the principles they died defending. My 83-year-old father fought in some of the most horrific battles of World War II, was wounded and awarded the Purple Heart.
He shakes his head in sadness at the life his grandson has had to live. He says he fought alongside homosexuals in those battles, that they did their part and bothered no one. One of his best friends in the service was gay, and he never knew it until the end, and when he did find out, it mattered not at all. That wasn't the measure of the man.
You religious folk just can't bear the thought that as my son emerges from the hell that was his childhood he might like to find a lifelong companion and have a measure of happiness. It offends your sensibilities that he should request the right to visit that companion in the hospital, to make medical decisions for him or to benefit from tax laws governing inheritance.
How dare he? you say. These outrageous requests would threaten the very existence of your family, would undermine the sanctity of marriage. You use religion to abdicate your responsibility to be thinking human beings. There are vast numbers of religious people who find your attitudes repugnant. God is not for the privileged majority, and God knows my son has committed no sin.
The deep-thinking author of a letter to the April 12 Valley News who lectures about homosexual sin and tells us about "those of us who have been blessed with the benefits of a religious upbringing" asks: "What ever happened to the idea of striving . . . to be better human beings than we are?"

I really do like livejournal sometimes. People on here make me laugh. sometimes in a good way sometimes in a sad way. Especially those ones at green day assholes. I knew i was gonna get cruxified there. I just had it coming. I QUESTIONED the survey. and left out 'Good Riddance' after 'Time of your Life.' Thats worthy of capital punishment right there. ohhhhhhhh alrite anyway....................
Im going to New York next week so that should be fun cept for the fact that i have to sleep in a room with all 3 members of my family. Oh well. I thought maybe i would get lucky and magically run into Le Tigre while im there but there on tour. Pfft whatever.
Well thats all i guess.
See you later.

Holy shit summer has been boring. i get to watch my 9 year old brother and his retard friends everyday til 5 but i dont go out anyway. where is there to go? My friends are all busy working and shit. Besides, i havent really been getting along very well with most of them lately. I dunno, seems like we cant relate to eachother anymore. We've changed or maybe ive just changed? Most days id just rather be alone than be someone im not with them. I need a job and i have a plan...for after high school anyway. Im going to Ryerson University in Toronto (if i can get in) to take photography most likely. I really dont care about that part tho, i just wanna go there so i can be in toronto, right in the middle of the gay community!
I went to Toronto a few days ago, its nothing new to me, i used to live there but this time we went to different parts. We went to China Town and then to Kensington Market. I went in a some stores there and finally found somewhere i want to be. People who i can relate too, and be open with. I went in this one book store with all these books on feminism, racism, war, Queer theory and all that stuff, zines, political shirts and buttons. In that store was everything i cant talk about at home. Things that i believe, that my family does not. Things that i understand that my friends dont even know about. Things that i want to be involved in. The guy there was really nice and laid back, he showed me around and talked to me like i mattered.
But now im back at home and losing my fuckin mind. I hate watching tv. i hate going on the internet. I hate playing my broken guitar. I hate not having anywhere to go. I hate not having anyone to tlak to about things that matter to me or the music i like. I dont belong here and I have 2 more years.

Well i havent written much in here lately. Its hot outside.|
ummm a boy named Trevor asked me out a couple days ago hehe. Ya he doesnt know im gay and he cant seem to put two and two together cuz today he found out i watch the L word and he watches it too so we were talking about the one last night (which was fuckin hilarious by the way!) and he said "Oh My God you remind me of Shane!" and i was thinking shit ok, now he must know but he never said anything. It didnt even look like he really thought about it. He just started talking about something else. Anyway, i think he was kinda upset that i turned him down but im glad were still friends. He's a cool guy....most of the time.
uhh i am trying to learn the solo for Smells Like Teen Spirit. i dunno why. guess i have nothing better to do. ive almost got it. I learned Polly yesterday too. i gotta get somemore nirvana stuff and i want an acoustic guitar. that would be fun. its hard to write and play songs on an electric with a broken chord for the amp....it seriously needs tuning too. oh well i dont wanna be all technical anyways.
i watched Bend it like Beckham a few days ago. it was a little bit weird and at first i thought i was going crazy and watching too many gay themed shows when i thought the two girls clearly should be lovers. but then i read somewhere that they were actually supposed to be but the director or whatever chickened out at the last minute and re-wrote it so the girl has some creepy romance with her coach for gods sake! ew.
but Kiera Knightley was hott so i give it points for that.
I read about this thing called Love in Action. its a homo-rehabilitation place like in But ima Cheerleader. Honestly what is wrong with these people? Hmm I wonder if theyve ever seen Biac? haha
Their website www.loveinaction.org disgusts me and even just reading it got me thinking about things but i know they pyscho christian assholes. and watching the L word made me feel better. i was reminded of why i started watching that show in the first place. Makes me feel like i belong somewhere. That, and shane is sexy. and so is laura....jeez i hadnt seen any episodes with her until last night. haha im gonna have such good gaydar now!
I went to value village again. Its a long story but the guy at the cash thought we were high. we werent but it didnt help that all we could do was burst out laughing. and theres christina sounding like shes ready to hack up a lung or something.......oh ya....that store is my refuge from the world lol.
hmmmm i wonder if theres still pizza left? i go see now.....

I was watching But I'ma Cheerleader(best movie of my life!) a couple days ago and my mom asked me wat it was about. so of course i had to tell her, and then she decided to come and watch it with me right when the sex scene started. its not graphic or anything but it is two girls. i changed the channel and she said i could watch my movie if i wanted, she wouldnt be freaked out or anything. So i put it back on and pinched myself to keep from giggling. Then my she asked me if there were many openly gay kids at my school. I told her about Jeremy and she told me about some guy from her school who brought a guy to prom and now hes a human rights worker. My mom defiantely does not have a problem with gays, but if i told her, i know shed tell my dad. Hey maybe then i will get sent to the place like in the movie. Sadly, that would be the only way i'd get some action any time soon. |
I made Cait watch the movie with me too and she loved it. I love being able to have someone to talk to about sexuality and the girls i like with. She just goes right along with it. its pretty funny. Shes like "no marie that girl is not hott" or "I saw whatsername today and she is georgeous!" Cait also frequently checks out our library's copy of "Empress of the World." The love story of 2 teenage girls. haha i told her she is soo gay. I think shes a dyke at heart.
anyways i took this quiz.....
