ITS OKAY by Mirrei ITS OKAY by Mirrei
Anyone who lives in the US knows that at the moment, the internet is brimming with anti Obama and anti Romney commercials and ads. I seriously can't go on a site without seeing something either bashing one of the political people or promoting them.
But this picture isn't about that. This picture is about something else. A concern that does not directly affect me. As most of us know, same-sex marriage is something that is illegal in the majority of the USA. Which is outrageous. Love is love. True, I was raised in a family taught that it's okay if a boy loves a boy or a girl loves a girl. But when I was younger, I found it to be strange. I was okay with it--as long as one of those people wasn't going to interact too much with me. To me, they were different people. I have greatly changed my views on this. People who are gay, lesbian, pan, bi, a-sexual, straight, transgender--anything. IT'S OKAY. It's not a decision, and even if it is, isn't it a free country? Should we dictate what is or isn't okay? Do we have a right to control love?
The other day, I saw an ad promoting Mitt Romney, saying something like "Marriage should stay pure. Obama won't save America's standing."
That is ridiculous. Ridiculous.
I can't imagine the world saying because I love a boy, and want to get married to him, and raise a family, I'm tainting my nation. Because that's always been "right." A girl and a guy. But why can't two guys be okay too? Or two girls? Even if it hasn't always been that way, whose to say we can't change it so it can?
It's okay. People need to know this. People need to believe this, and agree with this. It's okay if two guys makeout, or two girls hold hands as more than friends. Love is love.

I am a straight girl supporting LGBTQIA rights, because it's okay.


Love is truly blind. Love doesn't see sex, race, origin, religion, OR views. Love sees chemicals that matches what the other person lacks. Love fills holes that are otherwise empty, and that can't be filled by material things. ~xNe-Rdx

Sorry about not uploading stuff... I've been busy with summer work and also, I was trying to make a picture on paint tool sai. I spent about 3 hours on it and was almost done but forgot to save it, and it was lost and I got all depressed and stuff. ;_;
PS
This was super fast and super sketchy... So, uhm, not the best of my work. >.< Also, it looks all bloody and creepy... i don't know why it turned out that way...Maybe it's because these two men's love can't be? Yeah, uhm, Disregard the blood-like drips if that sends a wrong message.
