It's a sad sad world
Today I ended up in a discussion about gender and homosexuality. This happens quite often because I can not keep quiet when people are narrowminded, but today was a pretty unique situation because I have never in my life outside the internet have been met with such a genuine hatred against my thoughts.
This person talked about how scared she was when her daughter found interest in Spiderman. She was afraid that her little girl wanted to be a boy, or worse, a lesbian!
Yes indeed, not only couldn't she see the purpose of allowing children to play with the toys they want, she even thinks that homosexuals are simply disgusting. She even did vomit noises to emphasize the feeling of disgust she feels.
None of my arguments was logic to this person and I felt sort of empty after our discussion.
How is it possible to feel that hate? I get so sad thinking about everything she said and how many people out there who is sharing the same opinions as her.
