The respect comes comes from accepting that you don't understand homosexuality and that is it is different and let the people be. The respect comes from acknowledging that you have no right whatsoever to oppress, put down, or categorise people accorinding to religious, political, and cultural beliefs. The respect comes from acknowledging that people have the right to re-interpret cultural customs such as that legalised form of slavery, called marriage. The respect comes from accepting that marriage between a man and woman is not sancrosat, it is not the pinnacle of all relationships, and that all other forms of relationship are equally valid.Originally posted by SilenceGold
I failed to see where the respect importancy came in to make those things on the list to be more accepted in the present society. I really think it's just one word, fear, that made it harder to be acceptable for all of those things on the list.
The Respect comes from letting it be!
