What makes me angry is this perceived requirement that we in the GBLTI community are meant to always be completely respectful of those who hold opposing views to ours.
Yet in terms of our basic human rights and personal freedoms, we’re attacked by bigots who use religious freedoms and archaic attitudes to “hold us down”.
And we’re meant to always just sit back down, smile and say “Please sir, kick me in the mouth again. I hope my teeth didn’t scratch your shoes.”
Screw that. This isn’t an argument about what football team is better or whether you should tip for good service.
This is an argument about our right to exist, and we deserve to be angry and opinionated about it.
