Same Sex Marriage

Sat, 07/12/2014 - 16:02 -- DASHAUN

Why does America care so much? It's not their decision, it's the decision of the people getting married. Why are millions of people concerned about two people? It's not  their lives. Then people want to throw in religion? What's religion have to do with love? NOTHING! If this is the land the free, why aren't we free to marry who we want? It's  not a big deal. And then society wants to shun us. They don't know what gay and bisexual people go through. The looks we receive ad the comments directed toward us. They have no idea how many times I've woke up hating myself. They don't know how many times I've wanted to change because I thought something was wrong with me. They don't know how many times I've put on a smile just to keep people from asking questions. But you know what? I've learned to love myself accept myself because I deserve better. I've learned that there's nothing wrong with me. I've learned that I'm a warrior. Same sex marriage is ok. Nothing's wrong with being gay or bisexual. We are humans too. And we deserve to marry and be happy.
