What is the Gay Agenda?

While back, I noticed that #FearTheGayAgenda was trending on Twitter. Now, it’s not what you think it means. It isn’t a bunch of closed-minded conservatism-loving republicans fearing for their heterosexual minds on whether we are storming their schools and homes like the capitol building so that we can convert their children and/or their spouses. It was a sporting event but, in fact, the gayest sporting event besides football – professional wrestling.

But this got me thinking, what is the actual gay agenda? Because no one asked for it, and I’m a registered and card-carrying member, I thought I would share with you what is the gay agenda. You don’t need to hide your kids, your husband, and/or your wives. We aren’t looking to snatch people up.

The Gay Agenda

I’m about to blow your mind with this. Are you ready? The gay agenda is nothing more than to be able to exist the same way as heterosexuals. That’s it. That is, in fact, the gay agenda. The gay agenda is to live in a world where you don’t have to worry about someone deciding if you deserve rights just because you aren’t “like them.” Or random strangers calling slurs out at you because they find you and who you love to be “wrong.” The gay agenda is literally just anyone LGBTQ+ being able to go out into the world without fear.

Society, at some point, has made the world into a heteronormative world. My guess: Someone caught their lover, who was gay, and decreed that it’s “immortal” to sleep with someone who happens to be the same gender as you. To make it sound more powerful, they took the word of The Bible and made linked it to their cause. Sound familiar? It’s because it’s still going on today—people just the Bible to cover up their prejudice all the time.

People try using God and his word to put fear into people. That’s one thing that hasn’t changed. Julius Caesar could bang Brutus, and that was totally fine. You try to hold hands with the person you are dating the same gender as you down the street. You could get slurs thrown at you, or worse, you could actually get gay-bashed. It’s even worse if you are trans or non-binary. They could end up dead. While society has gotten better, it’s still has a long way to go.

So what helps the gay agenda progress?

Representation, tolerance, and acceptance. The more you see LGBTQ+ more in the media, the more it helps make LGBTQ+ people seem “normal.” The heteros might not want to see it, but it’s needed. This is how I look at it: Do I want to see all the heteros making out all the time? No. So you can suck it up for the minimal amount of “homosexuals” that you’ll have to deal with while I’ll have to watch you 95% of the content made towards the heteros. The media that we consume is that much hetero.

The best part of having representation? Eventually, you won’t give a shit if two guys are making out on your screen because it will be just normal for everyone to see. The benefit of it is just a normal thing: more acceptance and less hate. That’s all the gay agenda—more acceptance. We can’t stop being gay just as much as the heteros can’t stop being hetero. Everyone wants to be accepted, and frankly, everyone should.

DaBaby wouldn’t have been made those comments if we had more representation because that creates more understanding and acceptance. Are you starting to understand the agenda more? Granted, you still have ignorance and idiots in the world. But at least it wouldn’t be as common or slightly socially acceptable. While most people are more mindful of things, we still have prevalent homophobia and transphobia.

It’s not your job to understand why. It’s your job to be supportive

Like, I just recently got called a faggot by a random person that I didn’t know. Why, you may ask? They didn’t like the help I gave them, and they saw the LGBTQ+ pride necklace that I wear. Tell me how that’s okay. Why is it okay for hetero couples to have sex on your tv but not for LGBTQ+? Tell me why it’s okay for people to get berated for identity as male but wanting to wear nail polish. Why it’s okay for people to belittle people who don’t identify as male or female and want to use they/them pronouns? Tell me why it’s okay for trans people to be called by their dead names and the wrong gender. Spoiler: It’s not.

Using “children” and “the Bible” as a crutch to support your answers to those questions, then you are massively part of the problem. It’s also just horrible. Why do you care so much about what others want to do with their lives? As long as it’s not hurting anyone or anything, let people live their life. Life is too short for you to be sitting at home angry that the gay agenda is being spread when it has no impact on your rights, life, safety, or well-being.

Hopefully, this has helped you get a better grasp of the gay agenda and what it actually means. If you would like to help spread the gay agenda, it’s easy to do and you don’t have to be gay. Support equal rights, donate if you are to organizations like GLAAD or the Human Rights Campaign, and just be a supportive ally. That’s it.

Questions to avoid asking LGBTQ

While we like to think that we live in a more accepting day and age, there are many ignorant people out there. Some of those unaware people might not know that they are ignorant. So I thought I would share some no appropriate questions to ask people under the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer community. Some of these you would consider common sense, but you would also be common sense for people to know how to wear a mask, but that’s an article for a different day.

Is this because you all are snowflakes?

No, this isn’t because LGBTQ is snowflakes or sensitive. It’s just that many people ask questions that are invasive or come across as you trying to devalue someone. It’s okay to have questions and to try to understand them. You have to understand you might not ask some of your questions because they are invasive, following stereotypes, or just something you shouldn’t ask anyone. Keep in mind: These are just general things to avoid. Each person will be different; some people might not care if you ask these questions. Here’s the actual questions:

WHAT PARTS DO YOU HAVE?

Again, you would think that this would be common sense, but we wouldn’t need this article. So asking a transgender person what genitals they have is like asking how big someone’s penis is or details about someone’s vagina. You don’t do this. While I’m not transgender, I know I would like someone asking that of me. Unless you are super close to that person, I would assume like you are about to bang, you really shouldn’t care about whether someone should have a vagina or a penis

HOW DO YOU KNOW?

Before you ask this, I would ask yourself, “How did you know?” So if you are straight, “How did you know that you were Heterosexual?” I’ll give you a moment to ponder that. Did you ponder it? Does it seem like a stupid question? Because it is. If you ask, “when did you realize…,” that is a little more of a better question. Just like heterosexuals, LGBTQ is born the way they are. Lady Gaga didn’t write a song called “Born This Way” to be cute. It’s true. You are born that way at birth, but you might not realize it until down the road. Everyone is going to be different with this. Granted, “When did you realize…” is still a super personal question that I wouldn’t say right off the bat.

BUT AREN’T YOU REALLY JUST GAY?

This question is mainly for the Bisexuals out there! Let’s say this together: BISEXUALS.ARE.A.LEGITMATELY.ORIENTATION. There’s also a reason it’s called LGBTQ and not LGTQ. Besides, it rolls off the tongue better like both genders are legitimately and need to be more respectful than it should. There’s so much biphobia in the world, and frankly, it’s unneeded. Just because you have been with the same gender doesn’t make it any less valid that you might find them attractive along with the opposite gender. It’s like assuming that bisexuals are going to cheat on you because they like both genders. 

Are you sure? You don’t look or sound gay

Please explain to me what looking or sounding gay is. I didn’t know that a sexual orientation looked or say a certain way. I’m afraid that’s not right in so many ways. You can’t go off stereotypes presented in the media. Stereotypes are mistaken ideas or beliefs that many people have about a thing or group based upon how they look on the outside, which may be untrue or only partly true. While homosexual males might like Celine Dion, Cher, etc. They aren’t necessarily extraordinarily flamboyant and wearing pink bows while waving a rainbow on the street. They are shirtless and wearing sex harness that shows off their abs while in their underwear. It’s called pride wear. It’s like the old saying goes, “you can’t judge a book by its cover.” So please stop judging people based on outdated stereotypes. It’s not classy. Here’s my tale about it. 

I hope these inappropriate questions get the ball rolling on thinking before you speak. Like I mentioned prior, responses can vary on the person. I just generalized everyone like how most people generalized the LGBTQ community for years. Please think, “how would I respond to this” before you ask something. That would help a lot of our world issues if we did that more.
