HOUSE DADT VOTE

For years centuries even the word gay was non existent. It was either someone was 'sick' or deeply disturbed. The year 2010 has arrived and you would think that most of the world would be alright with gays and/or lesbians. But thats not the case in some small towns.

A small town that is gossip central and has very strong views is the last place someone wants to be open about. A person shouldn't have to be afraid of who they are, they should be proud. But it is hard to be open and proud when the majority of a community is against it.

Why must people live in fear of being who they are? If the world is so free and accepting, why does this happen constantly? Being gay isn't a disease, and just because a person is attracted to the same sex; doesn't mean that person checks every one out. To the people who think that;s what happens, don't flatter yourselves.

It is 2010, get with the times.
