I remember watching this Singapore made documentary about teens; it was an episode about homosexuality. They didn't state whether they were for or against it but you could tell they were leaning towards the opposition.
I recall the journalist going up to two young girls on the street who were holding hands, eager to know if they were 'dating'. Naturally, they declined to be interrogated.
The journalist was obviously mocking them. When I was in secondary school, I held hands with female classmates. Not because we were in a relationship, but it was a way of showing that we were close friends. When we walked to the public library, students from other schools would yell out something degrading.
It is frustrating homophobia still exists because I don't think people understand that love hath no boundaries. A man can fall in love with an animal and pledge his marital vows to her and it will still be love.
Its not about the exterior, physical part, its not about anything; because there aren't any rules to true love.
A few nights back, I was thinking about this, plus the fact that some people don't get jealous when their partner makes out with another person of the same sex even if it was all in good fun. (Their reasoning being: Its not like I'll fall in love with them, I'm straight! I can never love a girl/boy!)
Having said that Love hath no boundaries, these people clearly don't believe in love either even if they claim to have no problems with homosexuality. Its like they don't believe their love can be real.
