when i was younger, i didn’t understand the limitation of speaking about things such as religion in school. i thought everyone was overthinking and preparing for something that would never offend other people. obviously, as i grew older, i started to see the reasons behind the ban. i have always believed that other religions were as equal as mine, if not more sometimes. i saw the flaws and strengths of of each faith the way i saw my own. i am only interested in discussions when i feel like the topic is not trite or petty, but i can see why we don’t talk about gay rights in school. i understand that that’s not what certain people believe in, and even though i strongly do, i don’t think my stressing that it is simply equality will change their opinions or bias. i feel that if you can’t hang, then we just have to let it go.
