I wanted to start this post off by saying that I will be voting “Yes” for Marriage Equality is Australia.
It’s been an interesting couple of weeks regarding this topic, there are lot of people who feel like they are being pushed into saying “yes” so they are voting “no”. Which I honestly think is the LAMEST reason ever to vote for No for anything. Have a backbone, think for yourself. For all those people who are saying they are voting because they feel bullied into voting Yes…
How little respect do you have for yourself? I mean, truly, honestly?
You are really admitting that you care about what others/strangers thing? That you don’t have the respect for yourself to stand by what you think and believe. If these “libtards” and “left wingers” told you NOT to jump off the edge of the cliff and kept telling you not to do it…Would you do it, just to spite them?
I don’t really understand why someone would vote “No” and especially since I have seen no reason, legal or common sense wise, that has made me go “That’s a good point”. However, I do respect those people who are voting “no” and not because they were just trying to spite other people. They are actually standing to their own ideas, rather than following a crowd.
Think about it this way…If you’re voting “No” because the “yes” side have made you feel ‘silenced’ or are ‘mean’…Guess what genius…This is what homosexual people face EVERY SINGLE DAY! Except it far more extreme than you feeling attacked by strangers on Facebook. Gay people being discriminated and having to hear no every say, they face being kicked out by their families, possibly killed by a family member. Most gay people are killed by someone they know for being gay.
So sorry if I don’t feel sorry for you if you feel you are being attacked by the Yes side.
I have seen none of these attacking from the Yes side…Only once recently and I was so embarassed for them…Apart from that I’ve seen people who are trying to understand why people would think it’s alright to Vote No…All I’ve seen from the No side is that stupid video that actually had nothing to do with same sex marriage and more to do with safe schools…Which are two completely different subjects. I have had a tonne of vote no pamphlets in my letterbox. Let alone the disgusting hate speech through by the very far right Christians who are wandering up and down malls telling them that they are going to hell.
Gay people are attacked every day…Not once in a while…EVERY SINGLE DAY…They are literally dying by the hands of others, because of bullying and for fear of being outed.
So no, I don’t feel sorry for those who feel attacked on Facebook because people don’t agree with them. This is what gay people deal with every single day…Get over yourself, if you want to live in a country where gay people can’t get married. Go live in North Korea, or Russia. Since you seem think it’s okay to continually discriminate while crying “victim” because someone doesn’t agree with you.
