Brazil is (almost) Gay!

Since the beginning of this year (or the end of the last one), Brazilian media have been running on the spot about the gay rights. Whether through soap operas, news or magazines, they have  been constantly showing to the people that homosexuality is absolutely normal and we must accept it as something natural. In a nutshell, they are forcing it into our minds.

Last month, the Supremo Tribunal Federal (Brazilian High Court), unanimously voted for recognition of homosexual union. By this decision, gay couples have right to marry, adopt children, leave an inheritance for his companion, as well as it dependent on the statements of income and the health plan. That’s to say, they may build a family.

Some Senators also want to give them a special treatment or, in other words, to make a new law to protect them of any assumption of homophobia - and It is really hazardous.
Let’s suppose that a gay does not get a job in a competition with other heterosexual. With this supposed law, he/she could allege that did not get the job because its sexual orientation, and so, to fill a lawsuit against the company that did not contract him/her.

The article 5 of the Federal Constitution says that “Everyone is equal before the law without distinction of any kind.” If it was true, why to make such a law?
Well, if you are a Brazilian, you know that the article 5 is a bullshit! But it is not the case...

Ok. Gay couples do not have to be shunned by society for being homosexuals. It is their option and it ought to be respected. But, why to try to force it into our minds? I will always respect any one who respects me, that’s it! If you shows respect towards me, so I will do the same towards you and it has nothing to do with sex, race or colour!

I am not homophobic and think that all people must be respected regardless its sexual orientation, religion, colour or race. Nevertheless it doesn’t come into my mind that it is  normal. It does not make any sense because a male and a female fit together perfectly - and this is Nature Law (lex naturalis)!

If you want to be gay, Ok, but do not come forward to say that it is normal. In my point of view it is not; it is only a type of faddism.
