I know where I’m going with this one, just hear me out. We live in a world where finding a partner is a big deal, and given the modern world that is brainwashed by the media, where influencing people is so easy, anyone can be made to believe in anything, even regarding attraction.
Without offending anyone or implying that I’m a homophobic, I want to point out a few things that, according to me, has given homosexuality a big boast in our generation.
The first thing I want to point out is the lack of emotional support. This lack of emotional support doesn’t let anyone to explore how they actually feel about anything or anyone. People nowadays only care about the things and people that make them look good to other people that they don’t even care about; the world has become so pretentious and inconsiderate. In this world, we would definitely seclude ourselves in someone who would show us a little affection genuinely, which is really hard to find nowadays.
In this search for emotional support, one can only find comfort in their own gender, because there is a natural connection between a male and a male, and a female and a female—they somehow know each other very well, maybe because they know themselves.
Here, if we talk about the connection between a male and a female, it is not that easy to make a real connection as both the genders feel differently—it takes real hard work and emotional load to fully understand each other, but this is not the case with the same genders.
A male can easily understand another male, and a female can easily understand another female, this cuts off the emotional load that one needs to understand the opposite sex. As I said earlier, the world has become so pretentious and inconsiderate, that one cannot muster up enough energy to deal with the emotional load required to be straight anymore, so they end up finding comfort in their own gender.
If you are a homosexual, or you know someone who is, I don’t think you or they chose to feel the way you or they feel, it just happened, and this might be the case—you or they became a good victim of the modern society.
The second thing I want to point out is the trend. We all seem to prefer trend over anything; if you are not in the trend, you are not cool. This leads many people to believe that they are homosexual even if that might not be it, and they go with it. The fear of missing out is very high in our generation, it has been driving people to do a lot of crazy and mindless things just because they don’t want to be missed out. In this case, having a sexual preference might not be so crazy and mindless, unless, people have given up their actual sexual preference just to keep up with the trend because it’s cool.
The third and the last thing I want to point out is the mind-numbing social media—I know I am using one to talk about it, but it sure is mind-numbing if you don’t access proper contents. We have unlimited information available in our hands, but we prefer to neglect all the informations that could help us grow and distract ourselves with pointless entertainment. This as a result, deprives us of our mental ability. Without strong control over ourselves, we sure are to get swayed away by the influences around us. This goes back to the lack of emotional intelligence completing a vicious trap.
I, personally, have no problem with homosexuality, or bisexuality, or the transgenders, or the others who prefer an unusual sexuality, what I mean here is how the modern world can impact people to see themselves differently by pressuring them to find a partner and taking away their emotional support, their ability to reason, and their capability to stick with the way of the nature.
In conclusion, it might not be a disability, but a lack of ability.
