Hi Guys, First of all I have to say sorry for missing a blog. It was my birthday last week and I got caught up in all the festivities and couldnt find time to blog. I was going to do the follow up blog to Face Off 2, but once again something far more important has come up so I’ll get to that in the next blog.
If you haven’t already heard it, make sure you check out Hillary Clintons speech on LGBT rights are human rights. This speech blew me away. Absolutely amazing and I finally feel like someone said exactly what needed to be said.
One of the points she brought up was that the world is worse off for not treating gay people equally. At first I was a bit taken a back. I know that we are worse off for not getting treated the same but how is the world worse off for not treating us the same? She followed it up with “all the LGBT people out there with brilliant ideas or amazing contributions that aren’t contributing because they feel supressed”. Imagine all the amazing things that women have done that wouldn’t be done if they were never given rights? Imagine all the things that black people have done that would have never happened if they were never given rights. This got me thinking. I am a giant Oprah fan, and even if your not a fan of her you have to admit that she has made a massive contribution to the world. Now imagine that either women or black people were never given rights and therefore the oprah show never existed so therefore the thousands of good deeds she has done never came to fruition. The world indeed would be worse off for not having made that decision. The world is worse off for not making the same decision now with gay people. Its Time. Watch the video, share with your friends. Let me know what you think of the speech in the comments below.
