Is Gay World the Answer?

The pun is intended here.  However, let me begin by talking about my attraction for certain gay celebrities.  Rock Hudson is the first name that pops into my mind.  I was ‘oh so mesmerised by that tall stature and those Adonis looks.  Come September and Pillow Talk Rocked my world at a very impressionable age (I am in a punny mood today).  A revelation of his orientation and his ailment did nothing to diminish that twinkle in my eye at the mere mention of his name.  Then came the appreciation for Matt Boomer (Neal Caffery – White Collar), Jim Parsons (Sheldon – The Big Bang Theory), and the most adorable and multi-talented Neil Patrick Harris.  Neil Patrick Harris is an all-time favourite in the family.

The question is why do I think that the world should turn gay?  Again, am being punny.  We need a happier world than we already have.  Peace is a missing element.  In addition, the most disturbing trend in India of the regressive, demented, dangerous mind-sets pertaining to women in the name of religion, society, power play, lust, and/or lack of proper mental grooming, has provoked me enough.

I can write pages denigrating the jaundiced views and lack of sensitivity of the nation.  Scores of people have expressed their outrage at the recent rape cases, in media and on social networking forums.  I can do the same.  However, I am thinking of the solutions, alternatives, and in my opinion, a perfect solution has presented itself.  The title is self-explanatory.

So how would it work?  A toad and snake fight is not fair unless, toad has equal amount of poison and sharp teeth.  People from Mars and Venus cannot compete because that would not be a fair duel.  Personally, I see all the pros in this solution.  If the entire world were gay, the power plays will not include sexual exploitation between genders.  Most crimes against women will not be committed.  Any crime, if committed, will not be coloured by gender.  Men will not have to commit to women and hence that emotional/planetary gap will have no basis.  Women will not be subjugated to complying with the male sensibilities.  There will be no ‘saas-bahu’ (mother-in-law/daughter-in-law) drama, no bride burning, no dowry, no rapes…  Families will comprise either moms or dads with the children, or just couples cohabiting.  The familial pressures will be gone too.  I can already dream of a more peaceful co-existence.  There might be dirty games of ‘Desperate Housewives’.  Nevertheless, targets will be different.  Men and women will be better friends with no sexual tensions.  Any high-handed attitude of spouses will be between the same gender, making the fight even, or not.  At least, it will not be as disparate.  I can envision healthier families and healthier society.  Men and women can come together to procreate, in vitro, and share the responsibilities.

This thought process, expectation, is gleefully naïve and I am ready to be ridiculed for holding such an opinion.  The thought seems so perfect that it is thrilling.  It does seem to solve major perspective issues pertaining to women and the LGBT community, and in turn, creating a better and peaceful world.  This is just a thought.  Orientation is not something that can be changed at will, or can it?

The contention here is that this world was never supposed to be perfect, or none of us would ever want to leave it.  There are already so many distractions in this bling-bling world.  The imperfections, hardships, anomalies, and crime keep the people on their toes.  Keep the people connected to the almighty in some ways.  I can already hear a few readers cringing.  Let me set the record straight.  I am neither accepting nor justifying any of it.  We were not supposed to be doing any of this.  We were to come to the world with only one goal – to be good, meditate, and strive to achieve entry into His kingdom.  But human nature and human failings converted the peaceful world, that we inherited, into a chaos.  We started considering it our ultimate destination and lost sight of the higher goals.  (My spiritual side always kicks-in.  J)

Coming back to the topic, I see only pros in this thought.  I leave it to the readers to agree or find the cons, and comment.  Happy pondering!

    If the dream is to have “happier world and peace” why not make the pun more interesting? Why gay? Let everyone be asexual 😀 (pun intended)

    Is Gay World the Answer

    I wrote this article in the December of 2014. In light of the recent Orlando shootings, I have come to the conclusion that a gay-thinking world is the solution to all our phobias – religious, personal, orientational, political, racial, or gender-related. I have not done any research, but my observations are that except for being highly critical of poor taste in fashion or home decor, homosexuals are pretty much non-judgmental about most other aspects of human existence. They are, in fact, more accepting than any other group.

    I would like people to accept our misplaced egos and biases as anomalies that are condemnable and realise humanity and the entire cosmos is HIS bouquet, with variety so vast and beautiful that we will be fools to even think of converting this world into a single-coloured, grey world. These thoughts can only be harboured by people of myopic vision, with little knowledge of HIS Divinity and Grace…God help those who have lost the real meaning of HIS Love and think that they are the saviours of HIS Doctrine…
