Omosessualità: cosa non è
Spesso cerchiamo di spiegare cos'è l'omosessualità avendo cura di evitare tutti i luoghi comuni, gli stereotipi, ile etichette. Ma è necessario cambiare prospettiva, come Second Class Citizens ci propone in questo video in cui illustra cos'è l'omosessualità smontando i luoghi comuni.
Nel video What Homosexuality Is Not troviamo una serie di frasi fatte che solitamente definiscono l'omosessualità ma che, in realtà, non la definiscono affatto. L'omosessualità non è una credenza, non è una scelta e nemmeno una fase.
Qui sopra il video in inglese e con sottotitoli in spagnolo. Dopo il salto il testo dell'intero video. E una domanda: secondo voi cosa non è l'omosessualità?

Now that you know what homosexuality is not. Let us tell you what homosexuality is.
Homosexuality is the attraction to members of the same sex. And that about sums it up. It's SO simple. So why do we make it into something so complex in this country? In this world?
When it comes to homosexuality, I am so SICK & TIRED of hearing people say that they're traditional or they're conservative or they're religious or they do not believe... When they're really just homophobic.
Well guess what. Whether or not you're traditional, conservative, or religious. Whether or not you believe in homosexuality... IT EXISTS. WE EXIST. And we have been oppressed for far too long.
