Just Kiss me

There are many things in life that people take for granted or assume that are for certain collectives, but the cry for equality all over the world from minorities is not a call to be considered the same, is to be treated the same.

To be considered the same and to be treated the same is a fine line that some extremists don’t seem to see, a nuance that does make the difference. When African Americans suffered segregation and fought for equal rights, they were not looking to be considered Caucasians, they simply wanted to be have the citizen rights that were being negated to them; same applies for women on all sectors of society and so on.

I happen to be lucky enough to live in a country where equal rights have been embraced to a point where the new generations are not embarrassed anymore about showing public affection or even holding hands if they so happen to be of the same gender, where the right to kiss in public is the most natural thing in the world, but as an American expatriate, my heart goes out to all of those people across the ocean that are still fighting for the simple things that most take for granted.

The LGTB community doesn’t wish to be considered straight people, we don’t even want to be treated as such, but as tax paying citizens, we do believe that there are certain citizen rights that are being negated to us, hidden behind a thick layer of religion and even in countries such as Hungary, “the protection of family” is used as an excuse. I am a gay father to two gay sons, we are a family and our friends and family consider us as such. I love them and look after them, their well being and growth as law-abiding citizens. In my head and in that of millions around the world a family is a family and marriage is marriage, whether this is between two men or two women, or a man and a woman.

Hay algunas cosas en la vida que muchas personas dan por sentado ó incluso asumen que son exclusivas para ciertos colectivos, pero el grito de igualdad alrededor del mundo de mano de aquellas minorías no es uno que desee que los consideren lo mismo, sino el de ser tratados por igual.

Ser considerados lo mismo y ser tratados con igualdad es una delgada linea que algunos extremistas se rehusan a ver, un pequeño matiz que hace la diferencia. Cuando los Afro-Americanos sufrieron la segregación y lucharon por la igualdad de sus derechos, estos no pedían ser considerados Caucasicos, ellos simplemente querian los mismo derechos como ciudadanos que hasta entonces se les habian negado; lo mismo ocurre con las mujeres en todos los sectores de la sociedad y asi sucesivamente.

Cuento con la suerte de vivir en un país donde se ha conseguido la igualdad, a un punto donde las nuevas generaciones ya no se averguenzan de mostrarse afecto de forma pública o incluso de cogerse de las manos si resultan ser del mismo genero, donde el derecho a besarse en publico es la cosa más natural, pero como un Americano en el extranjero, my corazón va a todos aquellos al otro lado del oceano que siguen luchando por estos derechos y por aquellas cosas simples que muchos toman por sentado.

La comunidad GTBL no desea ser considerada heterosexual, ni siquiera pide ser tratada como tal, pero como ciudadanos que pagan impuestos, si creemos que hay ciertos derechos ciudadanos que se nos niegan, escondidos detrás de una gruesa capa de religión y en donde paises tales como Hungría, “la protección de la familia” se usa como excusa. Soy un padre Gay de dos chicos maravillosos también Gays, somos una familia y nuestros seres más queridos nos consideran tal. Los amo y cuido de ellos, su bienestar, desarrollo como ciudadanos de provecho. En mi cabeza y en la de millones alrededor del mundo, la familia es la familia y el matrimonio es el matrimonio, ya sea entre dos hombres, dos mujeres, o entre un hombre y una mujer.

“Nadie se da cuenta que algunas personas usan energías tremendas para simplemete ser normales”
Albert Camus

Life is a series of transitions. It’s not about where you are right now. It’s about which direction you’re going. Smile, and drink a frappuccino.
