Thought Bubble | ♡ Same Sex Marriages

Alright, peeps. This may be a sore subject, but I just have to speak (or rather, write) my peace on the matter.
I will admit here that I never once changed my Facebook profile picture to resemble that of a rainbow filter over my already adorable face. Why? Because I have never not been a supporter of those who wish to be themselves through and through.
I am aware that this may be hard to understand and that a few may never fully grasp that there are many of us out there who, while we are not bi, gay, lesbian, trans, or homophobic; we see through a much wider lens.
I firmly believe that one can never have it both ways:
I believe that we are only our souls inside a temporary shell. When we die, we go to heaven.
I believe you are wrong for not being heterosexual.

You can’t.

Why? You may ask.

If you truly believe each individuals’ shell is temporary, then why does it matter if other want to change theirs while they’re still alive?
Is it really hurting anyone when these awesome lovely people decide to physically alternate their appearance to match their soul?

I mean, we can’t all be born perfect.

On that same note. I understand there are those who label themselves “bisexual,” and in all honesty, that should be what we ALL identify with.

The cosmos are not talented enough to always, without fail, place every soul in what we societals deem the correct shell.

In conclusion, love is love is love.

We should be ashamed of ourselves for judging others who are simply extending that love beyond the societal norms.

I applaud you.

To eternity.
