Love is Freedom by tokyogirl0093 Love is Freedom by tokyogirl0093
This is an old art project I did for a graphic arts class when I was about 14.

We were supposed to choose a topic that we strongly believed in like: animal rights, anti-bullying, women's rights, breast cancer (those are just a few topics my other classmates decided on) and I chose to do mine on Gay and Lesbian Rights... which then led my entire class to just assume that I was a lesbian like the ignorant masses they are- just because someone is a supporter of the LGBT community does NOT automatically mean that they have to be Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, or Transgender. I mean, what? Just because I'm straight I have to either hate anyone in the LGBT community or I have to just ignore them...? It really annoys the CRAP out of me when people make such close-minded assumptions and I feel sorry for those people who seem to be able to only see the world in black and white. :no:

Anyway... I'm not TOO satisfied w/ how it turned out but then again, I tend to judge my own work pretty harshly. The teacher gave me an 'A' and I ended up making friends with a bisexual girl who said that my piece inspired her (though no one really knew she was bisexual at the time) and she ended up coming-out to me a few weeks later. Even after graduating high school we're both still really close. :hug:

Comments/critiques are appreciated and encouraged but please be gentle. :meow:

I generally like to thank, because it's all true what you write here, and love is the freedom to choose, and it can be any person who may be gays and lesbians or heterosexual, anyway, and I truly believe that all people should have the right to love someone which they whatever gender they like.  Meow :3 CURSE YOU! 

Yeah it is a story that you wrote has been so amazingly done, Heart I think I've fainted. LoveHere's a kiss for you, my love!  and you were right to be here to talk about, Nodand because the world has been some people, who do not realize that gays and lesbians are also people, and they are easily bullied and be spoken back and of course I think they are people who are tease gays and lesbians has been very nasty people Bleh .
And it's all good for me,:D (Big Grin)  because I don't hate gays or lesbians.  Meow :3 :happybounce: And, of course, love makes it freely to has been a person who is free to fall in love with the same-sex people. Blush  

However, what I wrote are all true, and what I really think so, and I wrote a review on here for all the same-sex people and what I think of them. :) (Smile) ;) (Wink) Meow :3 La la la la

Thank you for having the courage to speak out even when you might have been categorized and stereotyped. It was a very strong thing to do. People like you are the ones who change the world.

I think this is absolutely beautiful.

Being gay is a fact of nature and life. People need to accept that and just move on with treating each other as fellow, equal human beings. :)
