“I’m beautiful in my way cause God makes no mistakes I’m on the right track baby I was born this way. No matter gay, straight, or bi, lesbian, transgendered life. I’m on the right path baby I was born this way.”

This song by Lady Gaga entitled “Born this Way”, was popularized in honor of the members of the LGBT community. The song clearly speaks to us that there is nothing wrong with being gay or lesbian as long as you’re happy with how you are and what you are doing. Pointing out the presence of gender discrimination in our society, the song is trying to say that, “So what if I am a lesbian, this is my life not yours. “

So why is it a big deal to most of us if we see two girls being intimately sweet with one another, or guys acting and dress as if they are girls? What is wrong with that? How ...view middle of the document...

However in our society today, we do it the other way. Kids who are exhibiting peculiar actions are being teased in school. They suffer from extreme bullying in and out of the school. Same goes for the adults in the work place, not every one of them is given a chance to prove themselves and that being a lesbian or bi does not make them any less of a person. But these people are being criticized, judged, and hated mainly because of their gender. We fail to recognize their rights, and yes they are not normal, I mean they do not act according to their gender but this does not mean that they are different from us and that they should be treated differently.

We all have our own kind of happiness and I believe every one should respect whatever it may be. We should not dictate over someone’s happiness since in the first place, we are the pilots of our own lives, we have no right to say what is wrong and what is right for we are not God. We should not allow others to take away our happiness, and more importantly, we should not take others’ as well.

If only this society knows how to value and respect one another, then what a lovely place it is to live in! That is why I am glad that our society has been recognizing little by little these people who are part of the LGBT community just like Ellen de Generes, Neil Patrick Harris, our very own Vice Ganda, Aiza Seguerra, Bebe Gandanghari, Charice Pempengco, and of course Boy Abunda. They are just one of the few bravest people who I look up to because despite of all the judgments by our close minded society, and all the criticisms they are receiving, they decided to stand tall, and chose their happiness before anything else. The fact that you are not afraid to fight for yourself and for your happiness makes you the strongest person.

So let me end this paper with this line from the song “We Can’t Stop” by Miley Cyrus because I find the line really bold and powerful:

“Remember only God can judge you, forget the haters because somebody loves you.” “And we can’t stop, we won’t stop, we run things things don’t run we. Don’t take nothing from nobody.” “It’s our party we can do what we want, it’s our part we can say what we want, it’s our party we can love who we want, we can kiss who we want, we can sing what we want.”
