Why is it that we tell addicts “it’s not your fault” when they make the conscious choice to do drugs? Addicts are not victims. Addicts are not born that way. Addicts are criminals. They are a drain on society. *editorial, I am a former long time drug user. I am qualified to speak on this subject* We grant addicts the freedom to marry. We make wide latitude for their behavior. We celebrate addicts that “recover” from their poor decision making.
Being gay is not a crime. It IS NOT their fault. They are not victims. It is not a choice. Yet, we vilify them. We try to legalize being second class citizens. They pay their taxes and do not miss work due to “gayness”. We give them zero latitude. We allow them to be denied services at the whim of the business owner.
Something is wrong here. It is not the people that want to live their lives in the same manner as any other “non-criminal”. It is with us for allowing us to do it to them.
