i have a question for you guys.
every time i express my support for the kurdish LGBT there are always some kurds (and other nationalities) who say that this is not what kurds should be focusing on right now.
they say the important thing is FIRST to secure kurds their rights and THEN start discussing LGBT rights.
these people always say that i am "diluting" the kurdish cause and that has made me wonder why so many use this exact reason for not dealing with their prejudices against LGBT community.
can it really be that human beings can't deal with more issues about freedom than just one at a time?
i mean, dealing with your prejudice against kurdish LGBT in your community is something private, something you yourself have to start changing. it is so different from the freedom fight for kurdistan because that fight is not taking place in one's own home, that is a fight taking place in parliamentary and the streets.
i ask kurds to consider why they are so hateful against kurdish LGBT and i ask them to consider it at home and in private but it is as if they are saying "we don't have time for it what with our time-consuming fight for kurdistan." i mean, really? the average kurd is not fighting for kurdistan and could spend that time getting over their issues with the kurdish LGBT community.
and it is quite ignorant, i think, to say that the fight of the kurdish LGBT does not belong in the fight for kurdistan. of course it belongs there, of course we can fight for their rigths as well as our own, i mean it is the same thing. freedom is freedom.
what do you think about this excuse that kurds should not focus on kurdish LGBT rights because it is too busy fighting for the freedom of kurds?
(it makes no sense to me, i find it contradictory) .
