So in the wake of Orlando I think its time to talk about hope. As a gay guy from America I have to say this weekend killed me a little inside. Not only was there a horrific attack against the LGBT community but now everyone and their fucking mother are trying to pretend like this had nothing to do with the gay community.
Dear straight religious people, at some point you’ll have to accept this was a product of the culture you’ve created and enforced. Do you know what its called when there is a hate crime…. hate crime? hahaha…. this was actually a fucking massacre…. but anyways:
Do you know what its called when a hate crime is committed and everyone turns a blind eye? Thats called OPPRESSION you cunts.
Was this man crazy? Yes.
And did he have access to guns because America is an insane shithole with flimsy laws? Yes.
But would this attack have happened if this man was raised in a culture that didn’t teach him to hate gays?… Well now, there’s a question for you….
But enough about those cunts who are downplaying what just happened this post isn’t for them. This post is about what to do now.
This is one of those instances that was about death. We suffered and mourned the loss of 49 lives. But after mourning comes an intense desire to live.
And thats exactly what I have. I have a big fork in the road coming up in my life and dammit I want to make the most of it.
I want to live. I want to really really live. I want to find love, adventure, friendship, joy, humor, and excitement! I want to make an impact on this world! I want to finally stop being dragged through life and finally start actually living. Because unfortunately, with the world we live in, you never know when you may be dancing at a club when all of the sudden you and everyone around are on the floor bleeding to death.
Need some inspiration? Ok well look at this:
This is Hawaii
This is an actual castle in Germany
This is a real beach in Thailand
Why are we looking at these? Well because over the weekend we saw what horror, bloodshed, and hate looked like. What we to remember is that there is still so much beauty in the world. Life still holds meaning, joy, and love. Adventure is still out there, its just waiting to be found.
Take all the pain and hurt from this weekend and lets mold it from mourning, into passion. Remember to live life to the fullest. To embrace every single moment because you never know when it may be your last.
Tonight before you go to bed, hug your mom. Or your flatmate… or fuck, hug your dog. They love being hugged! Just show someone you care. Embrace and feel the love!
