I am tired of hearing this. I am 21 years old and Mexican. My family is homophobic. My own sister does not accept the fact that I am gay. Then who will? My family who suppose to support and love me will turn there backs against me and be ashamed of me. This is bullshit; the only person to depend on is you. I will be the only child in the family to get his Doctorate Degree, yet they seem to put more focus on the fact that I am gay. They want me to marry a girl, but I will not lie to myself. I have been emotionally beaten and I will take no more. I also feel that movies such as BRUNO give a bad image to gay people. Even though it’s a joke to some, people who are close minded really believe what they see and hear. Even then just because I am Mexican people judge me and think I am ignorant. Today, I have discovered how cruel the world is. It has also made me think about my life, and why people treat other people like shit. I tried so hard to be liked; I even went out of my way to do it. This is the reason why I am who I am. Enough is enough, people come and go, we trust and rely on others, but the fact of the matter is, we have to love ourselves! Anybody who feels hurt, ashamed, unwanted I have a message for you. FUCK THEM! Be true to yourself, do what you want to do, but do good to yourself. And if you still feel alone, don't because you are not alone! People who discriminate people are the people I HATE. I will promise this, I will not back down for anybody. You are special. You are unique! You have the choice to be eaten by negativity. Don't let this happen to you! We control our actions, we choose what to do, and the only person responsible is you. Use that anger and put it to good use. Believe it or not, but there will always be someone looking up to you.
