Today, I would like to talk about a topic that I have thought about for a very long time. For me, it’s a bit sensitive and difficult to write because I’m not in this circumstance. But after researching about it and talking to those who are in this circumstance, I have more motivation to do it.
People always ask for gender equality, but it does not work effectively like it can, especially for the LGBT the community.
For the entry today, I want to be with the LGBT community. I hope that this blog can show my and Mingle2 community’s support to them.
Since more and more countries approved gay marriage, many LGBT people came out. While there are a lot of gays, lesbians, trans… many still hide their sexuality for personal reasons.
When asking why they do want to come out? I usually receive many kinds of answer. One of my friends said that if he came out, he thought that he would lose his job. Another revealed that she was scared of the judgment. Or “my mom is not open-minded enough to accept that I’m a woman, but I love women instead of men” – an anonymous user on Mingle2 share with Support Team.
Everyone has their own story, own reason; however, it can be focused on some main points.
First of all, they can’t stand being rejected by their parents or family.
Family is where we receive love and share the love. In other words, this is the most peaceful place in the world. No matter what happens, even if the world outside turns its back on us, we still have our family. But, what if we will get rejected by the one we love most because of our sexuality? This could be the worst thing in the world.
Gays, lesbians and the third gender, in general, love their family, they don’t want to make their parents disappointed about them. So, they choose to keep their sexuality a secret.
Pitifully, many people in the LGBT community give up on their true love and get married to a straight person, and have children to make their parents happy.
What is the happiest thing in life? I myself believe that it is when we are with our lover.

For those whose son, daughter, sister, or brother who are in the LGBT community, gender is not something we can choose. It’s natural. So, if your son, your daughter, your sister, brother reveal their inner personality, please support them, don’t hurt them. Your son, your daughter love you so much.
After all, you only want our relatives to live happily.
On the other hand, the prejudice of society prevents LGBT community from showing who they really are.
Currently, many countries approve the law of same-gender marriage, but some are still strict, even though gay marriage is considered as a crime.
I know somewhere in the world, there are a lot of people discriminating against the LGBT community. Many gay or lesbian or bisexual or trans or queer are facing physical and mental abuse.
As for as I’m concerned, not only the third gender but also their families and relatives have been suffered the defamation.
Many gays, lesbians, trans…choose death as a rescue. According to a statistic of the Trevor Project, LGBT youth seriously contemplate suicide at almost three times the rate of heterosexual youth, and LGBT youth are almost five times as likely to have attempted suicide compared to heterosexual youth (2016)
As I mentioned above, gender is nature. It is not society’s vice or a disease. No one has the right to prevent and force someone to be who they are not. Let them be who they are.
LGBTs are human beings. They have full rights compared to other genders. You can choose your lives, so can they.
Sometimes, there are a lot of issues in the world make me feel so weird. For instance, you can protect the animal, you can love your dog, your cat, but why you are so hard to your fellow?
Consequently, the pressure from the family, from society makes a big psychological barrier for gay and lesbian and bisexual and trans and queer to reveal their sexuality. They can’t be who they are.
The citizens of the whole world fight every day against hunger, natural disasters, atomic bombs… to make life better. But, your fellow, they are not fine. What do you think about it?
I hope that you can look back on this issue?
