Words for thought
borrowed from radarnocturn

I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.

I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.

I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.
We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.

I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.

I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.

I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.

I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.

We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.

I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me.

I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman.

I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman.

I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male.

I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.

I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that.

I am the man who died when the paramedics stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.

I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I didn’t have to always deal with society hating me.

I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind.

I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love.

Homophobia is wrong.

musings...
I've just lit a stick of incense. I usually can't indulge in this particular passion of mine, because my grandmother (who lives with us) thought it "stank". Which is kind of hypocritical, since she smokes a pack of cigarettes a day...but thats not what i wanted this to be, its not a rant, so i'll stop. I'm using an incense burner my parents got me for my 21st birthday. A blue dragon perched on a castle, breathing fire down a long stone pathway. As for the exact brand of incense, its from a company called Liquid Blue ( www.liquidblue.com ). The specific type is called "Mushroom Vision" (yes i GET the reference, NO i'm NOT a druggie. :P ). Incense has always intrigued me, watching the plumes of smoke ride up from the glowing tip, like some ethereal filigree. Then watching it vanish into nothingness like magic, as if something so delicate cannot remain in our banal, logical world for long before it is destroyed. And what remains of the incense itself, does any of its ethereal power remain in the still, lifeless ashes the smoke has left behind? Littering the base of the burner, looking very much like the bleached bones of the dragon's past victims. Like bones, are the ashes devoid of all energy and life? Do the ashes envy the smoke, being trapped in the world of the physical, while it soars into the heavens?
