How do you say that being one amongst the LGBTQIA+ community is ‘unnatural’? I am a straight atheist female of today’s generation but I know about it, then how don’t you, the nobels of the ‘we know it all’ generation who have read and comprehended all of the religious texts and scriptures?
I only believe in myself and accept my reality. Just because my reality and I, in essence am divine, it does not make me religious but spiritual because religion, today, is ignorant of reality and only spreads inhumanity and hatred. Clearly, this system does not work anymore and needs immediate change or it will be completely removed if it persist to be so delusional as it is currently and I do not attach myself to such institutions of discrimination.
In Hinduism, Vishnu, in his Mohini avatar, lures the demons who were males to get his purpose served and to save the world from any mishap. Here, his behaviour indicates of his sexual orientation as a gay person. Similarly, Ardhanarishvar, which is essential state in which all people actually are because everyone has masculine and feminine traits in them, if we take it literally, that avatar’s sexual orientation would be transgender. Arjun took the form of Brihannala, a eunuch in Mahabharata, just like how Shikhandini became Shikhandi. In Christianity, in the Gospel of John, in ‘Disciple Whom Jesus Loved’, it is indicated that Jesus loved his disciple John and this love was in the aspect of sexual orientation. Jainism discards all kinds of attachments and sex (although sex is natural) but as it explains the stages of a being’s life, it indicates the states of both homosexuality and heterosexuality in the second and third phases out of four stages of its life. Buddhism mentions Ubhatovyanjañakas and Pandakas. Sikh marriages are non-gender specific, allowing all to identify and practice their sexuality freely and treating all with equal respect, as is inhibited in their community naturally. Quran treats males and females as equals, which they are. It also doesn’t specify any gender roles.
If the Goddess has formed herself, other Gods and their avatars and everything and especially, when Shakti is the Goddess, the creator and the creation in herself, then clearly all sexual orientations are one and equal and natural and functional. Therefore, in essence, all of us are natural and equal. When did they become unnatural? How and why? Who gave you the right to claim them as being unnatural? When you do not shame the creator but respect them, why do you shame the creations of Adi Shakti? What is not natural is the hatred and bigotry that humans, especially the ones who have blind ‘faith’ on misleading religious institutions are spreading in the name of ‘nature’ or the creator or God as they say. I am not writing this to say that everyone should ‘accept’ everyone because nobody has any right on another being’s existence. I am asking to stop shaming others for just being. I am just trying to say that we have to live and let others live.
