A World With Differences

Hello, and happy Monday!

In today’s society (at least here in America), there’s a culture of accepting people, no matter what their background or belief. Another piece of today’s culture that seems to be extremely prevalent is the LGBTQ+ community.

Before we go any further, I want to make something clear:

I do not want this post to be one that’s completely condemning an entire population. Yes, there are things that I disagree with within this specific community. But, I believe that people within this community are just as valuable as people outside of the community.

Also, what I cover in this post doesn’t necessarily reflect what the Roman Catholic Church as a whole teaches or believes.

With that being said, let’s get to the rest of the post.

As I said above, I think that the people within the LGBTQ+ community are just as valuable as those outside of it. They are just like those outside of the LGBTQ+ community in that they were created by and in the image of God. They are valued and loved by God.

And if I meet someone who's a part of this community, I will try to see them as I would see anyone else.

But just because I’ll try to see them as a fellow human being who has value, that doesn’t mean that I agree with everything they do.

There are communities around the world that are legalizing gay marriage. I have the belief that marriage should remain a sacrament solely between a man and a woman. I don’t think that two people of the same gender should be able to get married.

Marriage is something sacred and ordained by God. And I don't think we should mess with the way He created it.

But sexuality isn’t the only aspect of this community.

The LGBTQ+ community not only includes different sexualities, but also includes people’s gender orientation. An example of this is the transgender community.

I’ve seen something on social media here recently that said that there are only two genders and this post had an infographic along with it.

I agree with the initial statement of this post: I believe that there are two genders and only two genders. I believe that there are only males and females.

God only created male and female. And I believe it should remain that way.

I also have certain opinions about gender in general.

My overall opinion is that there are only two genders and people preferably identify with the gender they were assigned at birth.

There is the transgender community that consists of people who identify as the opposite gender than they were assigned. And these people may undergo surgeries to change to the gender they identify as. And there are also people who don’t identify as either male or female and are a part of the non-binary community.

There are probably other groups within the gender discussion, and I apologize for not covering you guys. I just don’t know a lot about the LGBTQ+ community and what I’ve covered so far is pretty much the extent of my LGBTQ+ knowledge.

All of this information has a point.

If you are a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I support you as a human being. I see you as a human being just like I am. I believe you deserve to have the same opportunities that I do. Y’all are just as deserving as I am to be happy and healthy. And y’all deserve to chase your dreams just as much as I do. Y’all have just as much dignity as myself or anyone else.

But there are things within your community that I don't agree with.

These things include: gay marriage, more than two genders, and people who identify as a different gender than the one they were assigned at birth.

And with that, I don’t really know what else to say.

If there’s something I left out or I got wrong, please comment below and let me know. I’d be more than glad to learn. And if something within this post resonated with you, please don’t hesitate to comment or share.

Until next time!
