As of now, in the 21st century with an immense load of development and technologies and what not under processing and with emergence of this so-called millennial generation, we're all still pretty unsure and to be precise unclear and ignorant about sexuality or gender preferences.
I've seen people living in the modern era with medieval thoughts like one should stick to their biologically specified gender which is totally nerves racking. And it's absolutely horrendous to force someone to abide by someone else's choice and alter their preferences and wishes just because of societal stereotypes. Although, with the recent activities and protests by the LGBTQ+ society there have been positive changes which are clearly noticeable as the governments are now recognizing third genders etc. But do you think they are still comfortably welcomed by everyone??
The words GAY, LESBIAN and TRANSGENDER are used for mockeries and name-calling and pieces of comedy by numerous famous comics and teens who get easily influenced walk upon the same paths and do the same. I mean are these guys sane enough? They're the ones creating stereotypes about dressing and appearances and what not but also at the same time joking about other societal stereotypes.
In most of the countries we have this age around 18 years where a person is given a legal tag of being an adult and given most of their legal rights, but do you think this skeptical view of sexuality is letting them enjoy their legal freedoms? I mean it's totally the person's choice about how they dress or appear or how they want to but they're gender shamed by these mockeries.
Is there a way to stop this? Is there any way we could get rid of this inhumane behaviour?
Let's face the reality, nature made genders only to ensure effective reproduction so that the species does not go extinct. Nobody was asked about their sexual preferences before birth and we cannot do anything about it but can we at least be human enough to let people understand, know and freely speak about their gender? (It's still a taboo to talk about it transparently)
Let's not be narrow minded enough that we begin reciprocating the society that existed a century back. Let's not lead the Homo sapiens sapiens community towards regression. Whomsoever it is, whatsoever their gender is, it's solely their choice and will. We are all humans first, were all given birth by nature and with equal rights. Let's live freely and form a socially neutral and acceptable society for everyone.
