Speaking Out. - May 19th 2013, 12:43 AM

HEY GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! .

OK, so on Facebook and in real life, I see a lot of d***heads LOL, people who just don't want to show respect. For example, yesterday, I saw a guy admitted he has a problem with homosexuals and proper attacking them, saying that they should stop because it makes them uncomfortable, saying that he would never help out a homosexual and they shouldn't act like that in public. "It's Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve". *shudders*.

Anyways, I told him "I don't accept Homophobia in my News Feed or anywhere else for that matter" and that finally shut him up .

Also, the other week, I had a Mental Health class and they were mucking around , making suicidal jokes, undermining the issue, IN THE MIDDLE of a Mental Health "Discussion".

You see a lot of disrespect and idiots but is it OK to speak out against it, like what I did with the dude last night? . OR is it better to leave your thoughts to yourself? .


“At times the world may seem an unfriendly and sinister place,
But believe that there is much more good in it than bad.
All you have to do is look hard enough,
And what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events may in fact be the first steps of a journey.”

I think it's better to speak out about it like you did with the guy. We need more people to speak out against others who are judgmental. I'd also say don't keep your thoughts to yourself if your thoughts have the potential to make a positive difference in the world.

I think it's okay to speak out about it. There's a proper way to do it, such as how you did it. As long as you aren't hostile, for instance, saying ("F you, I hope something bad happens to you") doing it in a polite but stern way, you can make an impact.
