I am typing this in response to my friend being attacked for being herself. William Roger's once said: "We will never have true civilization until we have learned to recognize the rights of others." This is true. We should learn to accept everyone because as human beings we have that potential. People should be judged by the content of their character, not by who they love, who they worship, what party they are, what nationality, or color of their skin. We are all human. I was very upset to learn that my friend was attacked just b ecause of someone they loved. And also by people they did not know. I sometimes wonder when we will reach the point where there will be no more hate. IT CAN START HERE! Here on DA. I propose making an official Equality group for DA on here. I am also making an equality badge. Stay strong my friends and as my friend Oneese says "Stay You"!.

Thank you sweetie! I have faith that someday we will all accept each other for who we are, and not judge each other for how we differ.

I love my girl and she loves me and that's all that matter in our house! :)

I first came to DA a few months ago and found a sad story about :iconcelticknotgirl: and :iconbikinigirl24: I would ask you to look into their love, their story, their tragedy and include them in the In Memory Of folder.

From what I understand, the two met here on DA, fell in love, everything was going great for them in their lives then celticknotgirl got hit by a drunk driver that drove up on a sidewalk while she was in California for something. bikinigirl is ok though...I mean not hurt...physically.I saw a lot of art and stories dedicated to her here on DA. I'll look some up and get back with you.

I hate how people judge by skin, gender, who or how they worship, and/or who or how they love.
And the worst part is they can't just 'man' up to their hates and hide it behind things and lines like; "Jesus hates you gays", "You're American so you're a fat retard", "You're a Muslim so you want to blow up the world". Just say you don't like "them" at least and don't generalize and hide behind stupid shit.

Yes! But you know everyone has preferences, and even that is part of acceptance. I accept some don't like me because I love another woman. I don't particularly like people who are gloomy all the time. But I accept them for who they are and try very hard to not push my own personality or ethics on them.

That's all I ask, let the person beside you be who they are without judgment or pressure to change to your way of thinking. Be open to letting people be themselves and let other be themselves.

People didn't like the way Einstein looked and acted, but look at what he did. People loved Washington and wanted him to become nearly a king here in America, but he stepped aside. I do not agree with the Mormon doctrine, but admire so many people who are Mormon because of how they lead their lives.

Stereo-types, generalizations and excluding people because they think or feel differently only hurts us as a whole.

Acceptance is the only way, I think. Setting aside your own ego-centric beliefs and hate when something new (that doesn't hurt you or yours-and knowing what is REALLY hurting you and yours is) to let others live their lives in their happy ways is KEY!

I hope this makes sense. :)

I know, just let people believe what they want.
The only things I hate are stupid people and hateful people, if only because they make things happen that mess with others ability to choose.

I agree, I find it disgusting and sad that people are still so close minded that someone gets treated badly or less just because of who they are in sense of who they like, race, religion etc.

And even who someone's personalty doesn't appeal to you, it doesn't give you the fucking right to hate on them. It doesn't.

Why not?

Well because there's this thing and it's called respect. Sad, most people don't seem to know what it means.
