I can’t tell you how frustrating it is to hear the words “why have they got to shove it down our throats”.
A woman as The Doctor.
A mixed race family in Eastenders.
A boy kissing another boy in a music video.
“I’m not racist/sexist/homophobic BUT…”
But nothing. Just fuck off. If you say ‘but’ then you’re racist, sexist or homophobic, which ever it is that you just ‘but’ about.
The world is not full of straight white men.
The world is a diverse mix of nationalities, and mixed in to that are women and the LGBTQ+ community.
I’m sorry to burst your small minded bubble but the world is waking up. Eyes are being open and TV, music, film and fashion all need to represent reality not your bigot’s paradise.
Genocides are still happening world wide.
Members of the LGBTQ+ community are still being imprisoned for daring to be out about themselves.
Women are still being treated like property; even in the UK and other western countries that you think are so liberal.
But you’re taking offense at people who have no choice over how they were born? That makes you an actual dickhead.
Why can you not just accept people for who they are?
More importantly why does is bother you? Is your ego really that fragile?
Maybe you need to look at yourself before complaining that the world “isn’t what it used to be”.
The world has never been all white, all straight or all male, and the world isn’t “shoving it down our throat”.
This is reality.
