International Day against Homophobia | Education | Scoop.it

Kim Simplis Barrow, the Special Envoy for Women and Children, has released a great video for the International Day against Homophobia.  Great timing, and her message is well said and delivered.  It has gone far enough.  It's a matter of human rights, and nobody should be bullied or discriminated against.  The diversity of Belize is what makes it the best.  Thank you, Miss Simplis-Barrow, for doing such a great job.

Via Homophobia news watch
Angela Saflekos's insight:

Homosexuality is neither moral or immoral as in terms of sexual orientation  but what does make it moral or immoral is personal opinions which stems from religious beliefs (bible) however this is only one perspective. The bible should not be looked at for life guidance but should live by reasoning. Homosexuality is not 'wrong' because it is legal and there is no law against people of the same sex being together romantically as there is no law against heterosexual people being together romantically. Many different reasons why people could be homosexual.

Going the distance: My phobia for homophobia

"Let me try something here. You know how most of us love chocolate? There is that one person you meet, once in a blue moon, who proudly announces that he or she is no fan of chocolate.  The path to understanding how or why on earth this person could possibly dislike chocolate, it being the answer to most of your problems and/or cravings, is similar to how I feel about people who claim they are homophobic. You wonder how that person has lived their life with this essential item missing from it. And feel sorry for what they have been missing all this time".

This article describes people who may be having trouble accepting or wanting to be proud that they are gay. It also differentiates between different areas that homosexual people could be more comfortable to be proud than other places.
