In the silent moment of my peaceful accord, I try to enjoy the celebration of the end of my school life. Yet I cannot come to the point of tranquility that I deserve after spending two decade preparing for what is often described as the ‘real world’.
Negative impression of reality has allotted my mentality coming to the sentiment that I cannot face what is out there for me. Having an idea of what my future would like leaves me drained for what I see now is a person with an unhappy successful existence. A person who spent her life trying to prove herself to be worthy of every oxygen she breathes for the day and worthy of all the bountiful blessings.
But in truth, what scared me more is that I may not be able to share a life of wealth with someone, most particularly with children. All of us have plans on creating a family of themselves but that is not the case for me. I fear that due to my incompetent being that I don’t want to have a blissful family that I can share with the remaining days til’ death.
I lived a life with full of suffering, to the point where I witnessed my mother crying for she can’t give her own child a supper. That moment, even for a single minute, scared me that it may happen to me in the future. The thought of not giving my children the life they deserve is what keeps me back from facing the truth the world is a monstrous place. That anytime it can black out for you and only you.
That does not add up the case for even now I have no definite plans yet of whom I want to be. Just imagine spending years in college where I could have all the time to think of who I would want to be after college is not enough then how will I ever decide. Option is not the answer. There are too many professions to choose from but the real question is will it fit me and the most important one is will I be happy.
A bountiful life is what every one of us wants. Rich people are still unhappy despite all the riches and fame they acquired. In my case, a happy life is simple defined as me having stability. With the fast-paced environment surrounding me, a single click can change my future. Each one of us wants that stability. A stable job, stable income, stable relationship but what we must aim for is our dream. Though we sometimes dream the impossible and it may sound metaphoric but it’s real.
I never dream big for it alarms me to think of it as unachievable and that when I didn’t get it I would tear apart. Though dreaming is very healthy for it gives you the moment of divine happiness just thinking about a particular one. If you were to ask me what my impossible dream is, that is to be a bird.
A bird has the freedom to travel and ran away quickly when they face danger. That is what inspires me to dream of becoming a bird. For there are times when I feel so scared that running is not enough to escape it but flying from it can give you a breath of fresh air.
I would like to fix this fragmented reality am dealing in the moment. Would like to have the moment to think of the person who I want to be wherein people that I know wouldn’t care. The life where no one expects from me anymore and only I expect for myself. A journey of life where I can shout to the world that I am truly happy in all its gores.
The question about moral crisis still occurs up to present times. It’s like a dream from the past that keeps haunting our present, even our future. There are indeed different moral crisis facing our society as of today. Every issue depends on the character, age, sex and beliefs of those who are affected. What may be good to some is bad to others in accordance to what preference they are. Some of us ask what the real issue of the present day is. When and where did this occur? Is this a crisis or just a flow of change? These are just some of those questions I would like to raise with regards to the moral crisis of homosexuality.
Homosexuality is the relationship between both sexes. A sexual behavior attracting same sex to be involve in a romantic relationships. Those who are attracted to both sexes are termed as “Bisexual”. In a specific term, those men attracted to men are called “gay” and those women attracted to women are called “lesbian”. No one can explain how people become homosexual. In scientific studies, it is the irregularities of genes resulting to homosexuality. Some say that it’s the nature or environment that affects the way of thinking. But other claims that it is the individual itself that develops thought of homosexuality alone, in a short term it’s inborn. But these findings are just opinion to answer the question of homosexuality.
In the early years cross-dressing is merely just a joke for the people and is only done in plays in the ancient times. Because women are forbidden to act in dramas and skits, men are more likely to play their part for entertainment. But today, cross-dressing among men, even women, is quite a trend all over the world. This is due to what we call democracy among people. When you see a man wearing skirts or girl clothes we have the tendency to think that he’s gay and that goes the same with women wearing men’s clothes. In the past this is a big issue of homosexuality especially in the Catholic Church. Many are criticized and down-played due to their personal preference. For in the eyes of God there are only two types of human, the men and women. And those who are outside the circle are aliens. But due to changes in cultures and beliefs among people, homosexuality is the span of time is accepted in the society.
Many think that homosexuality is not a bad thing since the society already accepted it. But if we look in to the reality there are some moral issue concerning homosexuality. Due to the spread of homosexuality, there is identity crisis among teens. If we will look through the early years, boys and girls claim themselves as straight even if they develop feelings at the same sex. They are afraid to admit that they are homo because the society and even their family won’t accept their nature. But today, teens are more outspoken about their feelings and thoughts.
Even in the entertainment industry, homos are quite popular and trusted. Some of these popular personalities are Boy Abunda, Aiza Seguerra, Vice Ganda, and Director Joey Reyes. This became quite a rage not only in entertainment but also in other fields of expertise wherein creativity is needed. So as to say, homosexual people especially gays are more creative when it comes to new ideas leaving out others in the corner.
Also because of homosexuality disease like HIV/AIDS are spread because of the sexual relationship done by same sex. This usually occurs among gay relationship. They are more likely to have HIV/AIDS because of their sexual habits. Pedophile also is said to be an effect of homosexuality according to psychiatrist and psychologist. Even molesters are said to be homosexual but this does not mean that all gays or lesbians have the tendency to molest or abuse others.
In America, homos have a free world. They can marry their same sex partner without any discrimination. But in other countries like Moslem countries, marrying the same sex is prohibited. Even being a homo is prohibited. For them it’s a sacred sin that should not be practiced nor be considering as a right. Even in our country, the Philippines, homos are not discriminated or pressured. Still we can’t avoid judgment from others, especially the conservative people. There’s just certain aspects wherein homosexuality is not allowed like in marriage. But in general, homos here in our country have the same rights and obligation like an ordinary person.
Homosexuality, because of their lack of confidence about themselves especially in their physical features leads to cosmetic or plastic surgery. Many of the homos today practice surgery just to improve their looks. Maybe it’s because they want to look like what they really wanted to be or maybe it’s a sign of insecurities among the opposite sex. This is quite a dismal for our Creator, God, because this shows him that we are not happy with what we have. But still this practice still goes on up to the present times.
Many of us should probably think that homosexual is just another culture. A change that is acceptable among the society for it shows how people can express their feelings and emotions without any hesitation. Still, homosexuality can affect other culture and other ideologies. Some cultures are disfavor because they are against homosexuality. We can accept homosexuality but we should not let it take over the most favorable sex, men and women.
