I have a beef with the gay community. I do not like how we treat one another.

I have this friend who started dating this guy. They really hit it off and started to spend lots of time together. Basically, my friend went out of his way and treated this guy like a king. They grew more fond of one another and had sex. This wasn’t a hookup, as my friend really had feelings for this guy, and thought the guy had similar feelings. They continued to see one another and everything was great.

Well, the other day, after a few weeks of this, my friend signs on aim and up pops the other guy who proceeds to dump my friend. He didn’t even call him to give him the news. Now, when I found out about this Wednesday morning, I was seething mad. I don’t know if it is because I am very loyal to my friends or because this friend is just a sweetheart and didn’t deserve this (who does?) or because of the total shittiness (yeah, that is a word now) and cowardliness of the way the guy handled the breakup.

I cannot understand why, when we get teased, discriminated against, threatened, or worse, we still find it acceptable to treat each other with disdain. The example above is oh so minor compared to what I have read about and know happens all of the time. My issue is not with what happened but how it happened. I know I am new to all of this but I truly think we need to make a concerted effort to treat each other better. To treat each other how we want to be treated. That is such a cliché but it is so true. It would make our world a better place.
