I have always wondered why people are always so concerned about the orientation of other people’s sexuality. It baffles me that someone else would go to such extremes over the fact that someone is in love. For me, I have never been concerned with this issue and I find it shallow to concern oneself with such things. What others do with themselves is their own business and no one else’s. The media has become more diverse on this issue by casting more gay or lesbian characters, but I still notice that people are uncomfortable by this. One thing that we could do to increase the amount of diversity is make a point to shut down negative comments and attention. If you hear or see someone discriminating against the LGBT community, make a point to divert their negativity and support them by reassuring them that who they are is not something that should be bashed upon. I see a future with an even more diverse outlook on this situation. I think the next generation will be more accustomed to seeing gay couples and will not have the prejudice predisposed in their minds. I look forward to seeing a day when we can accept all of the diversities among one another. In the future I think that it is necessary to challenge these areas of lack of diversity so that our society can become better as a whole. Without challenging these social constraints we would not be where we are today. Segregation might still be happening if it weren’t for those brave people who stood up for what they believed in and shut down the oppression of each group. There is nothing we cannot overcome as a society as long as we stand together and exemplify the mannerism that welcomes diversity.
