if you talk to animals

Chief Dan George once said
“If you talk to animals, they will talk with you, and you will know each other,
If you do not talk to them, you will not know them, and what you don’t know, you will fear.
What one fears one destroys….
It is one of the truest saying i have ever known. I don’t particulary know about talking to animals.. But I do know how we try to destroy things because we fear them..
We create rules to prevent things that are against our norms, hoping that the rules would destroy what we fear.. ‘the abnormalities’..
Isn’t our homophobia created out of fear? When a man loves another man, we are afraid, because we don’t normally do the same. Then we create rules to destroy that. We bring religion to justify our action.
Countless homosexuals are forced to keep their feelings to themself, lest the society would judge them..
Native Indians had one simple rule. Live and let live.. But we the champions of civil rights and personal liberty can’t even accord that basic right to live the the life of their choice to homosexual people..all because they chose the same sex partners?
We fear them and we want to destroy them.. and we call ourselves civilized?
