Oh those Beautiful Bastards XD
Because there’s a huge difference between spreading information and acting upon that information.
Let me give you an example:
There is spoiled hamburger meat in a school. You have two students, Sally, and Jimmy.
Jimmy sees that the hamburger meat is spoiled, so he goes around to tell people about the bad meat and make sure nobody eats it.
Sarah on the other hand notices that they have had less-than-stellar food lately, and decides to circulate a petition demanding higher quality food before presenting it to the principal. The principal sees this and decides to do something about the bad meat.
Now, while Jimmy did help to make sure nobody ingested the meat by informing them, he didn’t really do anything about the problem itself; the meat was still tainted, just everyone knew that it was and not to eat it. It was Sarah who decided to bring attention to it and go to the higher-ups about it and get things to change. Jimmy saved some upset tummies for the short term, but Sarah saved the tummies for the long term.
Does it make sense now? Spreading information is not going to change much. Yes it’s going to make people informed, but that’s it. People still have to do something with that information, or else it’s just a never ending game of telephone.
"Why don’t you stop telling oter people that they chose to be who they are?"
—Because FUCK Freedom—
I was merely asking WHY the notion of chosing who you want to be is bad, I a curious about it, why? Don’t you love your freedom? Don’t you love the power to chose what you want to do with your life?
If you aren’t happy with who you are, wouldn’t you want to power to change into something that makes you happy?
We are not born gay, we are not born trans, we are not born otherkinish, we are not born serial killers…we are a white sheet of paper waiting to be written on and that does not make you worthless.
I think I get where you’re coming from with this, you’re referirng to the people who make the argument of “We can change you, we can take the gay away”
Technically speaking…yes, they could...HOWEVER, that DOES NOT mean it’s the right thing to do, one person has chosen to be gay and that decision HAS to be respected, because if you try to change them, you’re an opressor, because you can, doesn’t mean you should.
You people in Tumblr are WAAAAY to simplistic for everything (Except gender, that is the only thing where unnecesary complexity is acceptable) bad news for you, in life there are hundreds if not thousands of variables for everything, there is no “Black and White”, there are multiple colors, I know you don’t like that, but that is how the universe is and unlike your destiny, that is something you CAN’T change.
