I've heard way too many friends express disgust over hatred/ intolerance being spewed all over their facebooks, mostly from ROmney supporters. But instead of saying anything, they are choosing to 'be the bigger person.'
You know what? The bigger person DEFENDS the minority. The bigger person stands up for what they believe in - for what they know to be right.
The bigger person says, 'It's FUCKED UP that human beings are having their rights VOTED on, and aren't being granted the same rights that others have.'
Do not EVER let a bigot silence your voice. Your voice is the only one you've got.
Why aren't you using yours?
No hate for them - their intolerance blocks logic and compassion from their hearts and minds. But I'm sorely disappointed in you - because I hold you to higher standards than them.
I expect better from you - from me, from us.
USE your fucking voice. You used it to vote. Now use it to spread love, to stamp out bigotry.
To show support for those who desperately need to hear it.
