Our society fears what opposes them, or what is different.
To some, it’s like a threat to have something unfamiliar. In this case, bisexuals. For as long as humans have been on the earth, there’s always been some kind of prejudice, whether it be because of race, culture, religion, or something else. Now there is prejudice against bisexuals.
A lot of people probably don’t hate LGBT people, they push them away. And, well, this is self-contradictory, but when people push others away, that usually gives way for hate.
LGBT people haven’t done anything wrong in my point of view. But for the people who push them away for the sole reason that they are different? To them, it’s probably just because they are there. Those people expect everyone to be the same. Boys to like girls, girls to like boys. And when something upsets the balance of their world, they react by pushing it away and showing hate.
So much of our world is familiar to us. LGBT people are part of it. But for a lot of people, they don’t accept and embrace that. They hate it instead. To be honest, I can’t say for sure what causes that hate. Maybe you just have to be one of those people to truly understand that. But my guess is that people fear and hate the unknown. The unfamiliar. In this case, that unknown variable is bisexuals.
Kelvin Onyango, it takes courage to ask your question. I’ve always wanted to ask this question, but now see me trying to answer, so thanks for asking..
Bisexual people are only one part of the LGBT and these days, it’s LGBTQIA2S+… These are people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and/or gender expansive, queer and/or questioning, intersex, asexual, and two-spirit.
In the same society, we have thieves, we have terrorists, we have corrupt politicians; but there are so many LGBTQIA2S+ who are making lots of positive contribution to society. I am of the opinion, we are on the outlook for the splint in our brother’s eyes instead of the log in ours. The Bible says that Christ allowed a prostitute to wash his feet with her tears/hair, and then poured on and maybe massaged his feet with all kinds of sweet smelling perfumed oils.. I mean, he dined with tax collectors, he did the opposite of what the pharisees and others thought is true religion.
So here goes, the only true religion is the religion of love, hating only increases the hostility and judgement, so why don’t we all take a step back and understand a person just as they are. Someone be like….It’s easier than done.. 🙂
On the same vein, there is research that confirms that even animals have bisexual and gay tendencies; here’s the thing, there is no one more special than the other in this world, we are here but for a short time. I wonder, if Christ was to live in this century, how would he live?
And again we all know LGBTQIA2S+ may happen through nature and through nurture. We don’t know other people’s stories until they tell them, some never have the courage to tell, coz they probably do not have safe spaces to tell those stories. Maybe if we take the time to listen, then it may not bother us too much that someone is as they are.
I think the society tend to judge LGBTQ harshly because most people do not support their ideals, but for me l think everyone has a choice to make in life.
Most people find it disgusting to have individuals of same sex being intimate with each other.
Some people just don’t like the lifestyle because of religious reasons.That’s perfectly okay, you don’t have to like everyone or everything.
I think the whole LGBTQ concept is unacceptable in the society because is totally alien to our traditions and in total contradiction to our African beliefs and culture
The main problem started way way early, whenever they decided to make us believe we are sexual beings instead of human beings. If we look at it with a third eye, the whole argument is all about the difference on how people enjoy sexual pleasures… it would be easier for everyone to put bed matters kwa bedroom when we are outside we become human beings, so that protective parents and siblings won’t try to get on offensive mode..
