Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

Racism against the gay soceity

with 3 comments

In class we had talked about the controversies on whether gays should be allowed to serve in the military. Before this discussion in class someone had posted a status on Facebook saying he agreed with Obama when he said, gays should be allowed to serve our country. In response to this status someone had disagreed, so I asked the person why they are humans they should be allowed to. He said well I wouldn’t want to get raped or anything and to that I said okay that is against the law just because someone is gay they are not going to rape you. Plus I never thought about it this way, but when we watched the video clip in class it is true what the military veteran said, it’s about professionalism. So just because someone is gay they can’t be professional on the job? Just because someone is gay they are incapable of fighting for our country. Like someone said in class its like they talk about gays as if  they were from a different breed. After responding to that person on Facebook he proceeded to say that, maybe it was best for them to go to the military so they can all die, what can I say I’m a conservative. I was in total shock and could not continue the conversation with such an ignorant person. There are really people out there that feel so strong about this issue that would wish death on a group of people, that is just disgusting! Like really what makes you so qualified to judge another person? I really wish I knew why people feel like they have the darn right to judge anyone! Some people say well that isn’t what the bible says and that they should not be able to get married. What if that person doesn’t believe in God? and if you do believe in God well leave it up to him to decide.

  1. I completely agree, the statements the person made are completely ignorant and inconsiderate. This just shows how deep-rooted stereotypes have been driven into our society. To state that gays will rape you is completely ridiculous. Rape is an act committed by people from all different backgrounds, and sexualities. No group acts as a unified whole. All whites don’t act a certain way, and in the same manner, all gays do not committ the same acts either.

  2. Yea, this is a touchy! Gays should be allowed to serve in the military in my perspective. I understand some might say they might get “hit on” or sexually assaulted but like that guy said gays in the military are very professional. There are always a time and a place for everything. Putting your life on the line by joining the military to find companion just is not worth it. I really believe they are trying to only serve their country and that’s it.

  3. I totally agree with everyone, gays should be allowed to serve in the military. I don’t understand why so many people are homophobic. I have a couple of gay friends and they all say they hate it when straight people assume that they are attracted to them just because they are gay. People need to get over themselves and be more open-minded.
