We live in a strange world, where we ignore the one who loves us, then loving the one who ignores us. We live in a strange world, where the poor walk miles to get food and the rich walk miles to digest food. We live in a strange world, where society will judge the truth and worship the lies. And we live in a strange world, where we blame the world, never grasping the fact that we are also part of this world.

We’re all humans, we all deserve rights. Every human deserves equal rights, even those who devastates nature, those who slayed fellow humans, and those who are just true to what they are, true to themselves. Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual, and Ally, I’m Ervin Goh saying No to Discrimination!

I am not here because I am a part of LGBT community; I am here because I know that LGBTQIA are also humans, and just humans like us. But before I start voicing my thoughts and opinion, does anyone know what is LGBTQIA and what does it mean? LGBTQIA is an initial that is intended to emphasize a diversity of sexuality and gender identity-based cultures. We are all familiarize on LGBT but QIA generally refers to Queer, a term which refers to individuals or groups who “queer” or problematize the hegemonic notions of sex, gender and desire in a given society. Intersex is a person whose sexual anatomy or chromosomes do not fit with traditional markers of “female” and “male”, while Asexual is a person who generally does not feel sexual attraction or desire to any group of people. There is also what we called “Ally” or typically any non LGBT person who supports and stands for the rights of LGBT individuals.

“In the beginning, God made Adam and Eve; not Adam and Steve, nor Eve and Jane”, Anti-gay Christian ministers have used this as a bottom line to propagate the myth that homosexuality is ‘unnatural’. On the other hand, passages in the Old testament book Leviticus, prohibits “lying with mankind as with womankind” and the story of Sodom and Gomorrah have traditionally been interpreted only by Christian church as condemning and prohibiting homosexual acts, but it is not explicitly identify. I’m not questioning what the Bible stated us; I’m just saying what the Bible did not tell us. Even if you read the whole bible 500 times, you will never ever find a verse stating “homosexuality is a sin”. I’m not trying to sound like a biblical scholar; I’m just pointing my fingers on how blind so many Christians are, due to misunderstanding on the word of God.

On my 16 years living in this tragic world, I’ve never seen the world on its halfway yet, but I’m continuously opening my mind on what is this world, what’s happening on this world, and seeing the reality behind lies. Humans judge fellow human by their own point of view, sometimes we must understand other’s perspective first, before we voice out negative comments that will pulverize their feelings and dignity as a human. Instead of meddling around, and judging the lives of one individual, go and change your attitude first. Mind your own problems, mind your own business! You’re just wasting your time on someone else’s life.

Society builds walls between LGBT communities because they believe that this is what the Bible says, but the truth is we are creating walls between humans, because discriminating LGBT is discriminating fellow humans, and discriminating his children is discriminating the Almighty God. Eliminate the hates and selfishness; get out in the world full of pretenders. It’s better to live in your own world than to live in a world full of fakes, in the world full of hypocrites! Shape your world or someone else will. Stand out! And say No to Discrimination on LGBTQIA community.
