    YouTube has recently added a rainbow-colored heart right next to the YouTube icon. There you can find a video about people whose identity does not fit to the binary gender system.
    Seeing the amount of dislikes and the bad comments just makes me loosing any faith in the human kind :/

    Their video about celebrating gay marriage got such a positive feedback.
    But why are people responding so negative to this one???

    People have different views. But why does everyone should be such a cunt about it. If you don't agree with someone is different because they are different, don't mention it. If you don't like someone because they are different, stop being a colossal cunt and walk off.

    While there may be those who just get mad at the drop of a hat about anything outside of their comfort zone, I do think some displays are pushed too far. If you orient yourself a certain way, then that's fine. I'm glad that people don't need to hide who they are. But, do I need to see this sort of thing everywhere I go? I'm sure plenty of people would get upset if there was something of this nature of #ProudToBe, but instead of people identifying themselves outside of the binary gender system, it would have people who identify themselves within it.

    Really getting sick of this kind of shit. I don't have a problem with people making their own choices, its none of my business. However, that doesn't mean I want to get linked to a blatant propaganda video every time I login to an account somewhere. I fail to see why this can't just be someone's personal life that doesn't have any effect on everyone else. I'm not going to bug anyone over their sexuality, but I really don't appreciate having it shoved in my face all the time by videos like this.

    This is exactly how wars get started and sometimes people get hurt or killed.

    "You're not like me, you're weird"
    "Why is it I'm weird cause we don't like same things?"
    "Man and women is how things should be"
    "Is my life, let me do what i want."
    *Some debates are started, some actions are taken, protest are done, rules are changing, enforcers are taking action, people are "Purging the inhuman" Making stories spread nationwide, No actual work gets done cause of distractions of things like this, and all the online social justice warriors are trying to be everyones hero*

    THE END.

    Life in 2 minutes. It sucks yeah, if i don't like something, i just avoid it, not comment or show my distaste or dissatisfaction. We all only have one life, we all deserve to do what makes others happy as long as it doesn't conflict with others.

    (Please tell me if i was too harsh, i wasn't intended to be and will rewrite any context that may been offensive.)

    most people in the world are 'regular' 'old fashioned' male and female, yes?
    most people in the world have two legs and can hear, it doesn't mean we need to be shown deaf people in wheelchairs all the time, right?
    nothing wrong with being deaf and in a wheelchair, or nothing wrong with not being sure what gender you are etc, but i can't say it's normal (as in majority) for our 'species'... i don't hate them, but i wouldn't want to be them.
    maybe it's not that simple, i'm happy to listen!

    Eh, the way I see it, there aren't very many people out in the world who are in a wheelchair and/or deaf and are getting hate slung at them at anywhere near the velocity that queer people are. The only reason that "pride" campaigns exist is to reaffirm others that they can be accepted, not necessarily to flaunt their sexuality

    Well, I used to wonder what friendship could be why there isn't heterosexual pride or cis pride or something like that. Then it was explained to me. They don't want to shove it down our throats. They do it to stop being hated for what they are.

    EDIT: Typo

    Meh. I'm indifferent to a lot of things. I don't care what you choose to identify as. I don't care that you want to dress up like a fox. I really don't care that you want to physically alter your appearance. However, to say that those who don't agree should keep quiet? What. The. Fuck. To also think that people should accept it, or they're bad people? Really? Talk about being a hypocrite.

    I don't care that little Sally wants to be called little Billy. I shouldn't have to care. Call me heartless, but it's not for me. It's not my place. It shouldn't be shoved down my throat. It's the same thing with religion, vegans, and just about everything else. You do you. It's not me.

    Not to mention anyone can get hate forced at them for no reason. There people on daily basis getting the same kind of attention for no reason what so ever, and the only reason is cause they are bullies who are on power trips and think they can do whatever they want. There been two consistant acts of dumb things happening as a attempt to make a difference and someone gets hate forward to them in form of news. Is not just the people who are being indifferent, is regular common people as well. (Not to sound insensitive.)

    At least more than 50% of the america, Or even the world have situation like this. I had situations like this, is not directly linked to any controversy, but i had been bullied before, just cause people wanted what i had and they didn't or whatever. That was over 20 year ago, things haven't changed, not even knowing or learning about my diagnosis with aspergers syndrome, and as a kid in 2 grade no one knew anything about it and will still have problems then and do now. That is life, a end less struggle for some people one sided opinions being dominant. I think japan and their Less limited views on homosexuality are a bit well developed according to some anime that is being created. :)

    That may be for some, but not all. I've seen plenty of "it's my time to shine after living in darkness" moments to know that there has been more to it than just giving these folks comfort in their choice.

    I was bullied for no reason at all. That guy just wanted someone (literally anyone) to bully.

    Because they did not talked about people like me who are identified as a GBA ever since they we're born >:c

    Talking seriously it can be:
    -People got stuck with the typical SJW tumblr stereotype *even through not every non-binary gender person in the world is like that*

    -People is really stupid. Nuff Said

    Some people like the spotlight. Never understood why. It shakes me, violently.

    I need a safe space..

    People care too much, if you live your life without hurting others you're fine by me. And if a man thinks he's a horse, I'd rather let him live happily as a horse, than miserably as a man. It doesn't make him a horse, but there's no reason to try and convince him of that.

    Some times for safety reaons, I understand what you mean but when in rome, do what the rome people do, Mostly the idea would be to just have a sectiion cut off and dedicated to these kinds of things where is more focused and supported instead of downplayed and degraded. :unsure:

    But even then, humanity don't have to be so curel to each other, but i don't see a change anytime soon, unless our lives were like the story book "the giver" :creep:

    Youtube mainly consists out of 13-15 year old edgy egdelords.
    The comments section is a slither away from total anarchy.
    Everyone and anyone can spam whatever shit they can come up with.
    It's truly disgusting.

    I meself couldn't care less.
    Let people be.
    If people want to be homosexual/trans/transracial(idk if that's a word but eh) then let them be.
    I'm not controlling your life so I don't have a saying in it.
    Who am I to decide your future happiness!?

    It's just such a shame that not everyone has the same mindset like that.

    Eh, if they want it public I say let it be so, I'm sure they understood there would be backlash before approving it.
