A statement on equality

Everyone is entitled to equal protection and rights. We are all unique individuals, and we deserve to be acknowledged for that. No one is, and should be, above any individual, because our differences are what makes us the same – for there will always be people better than us as much as we could be better than others.

Life is only fair. It is as fair as experiencing pain while others rejoice. This is why we need to experience both pain and happiness. Think of how much children suffer while we successfully achieve a goal, or how many people rejoice to the gift of new life while we wallow in misery over a tragic incident.

Life is only fair because as much as we have faults and positive traits, we also have as much pain as our happiness. And we are not alone through it all.

Life is only fair because no one is purely good or purely evil. Life is only fair because the sun shines and the rain pours, regardless of who is happy or sad.

As such, the equilibrium of our life should not be misunderstood.

No one has the right to judge other people for who they are, for what they can or cannot do, for who they choose to be, or for everything else that defines their very existence. We are not, and will never be, better than anyone else but ourselves.

To judge someone puts you in a much better position to be judged.

If you fear judgment from people who do not – and are not willing – to understand, then think about the millions of people out there who are currently wrongly and unfairly condemned for being who they are. DO NOT EXERT PREJUDICE IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE JUDGED HARSHLY.

No one has the right to condemn a person’s existence as much as others don’t have the right to persecute you for being true to yourself. Being true to yourself is not a sickness or a tragedy. You are just being you, and you shouldn’t feel bad about that..

Being different – gay, lesbian, bi, transgendered, asian, black, white, old, young, rich, poor, atheist, polytheist, pantheist, monotheist, etc. – does not mean you are less human than everyone else. Being who you are and being strong enough to be proud of it means you deserve to be as happy, as loved, and as cared for as much as everyone else does.
