A few days back an Interview crossed my way. A friend of mine actually made me aware of HOP and then I got word from this interview. It’s a two-piece interview from the Blog “Chaos in the moonlight” and K-Lee Klein with CockyBoys owner Jake Jaxson, Benny MoreCock and RJ Sebastian.
All three do not only work together, no, they also live in a loving relationship together.
The interview literally made me cry, it made me laugh and it inspired me – all on the very same time.
In my job (I’m in school to become a elderly care nurse) I’m confronted with Homophobia quiet a lot. By now we already have had gay co-workers or even gay citizens and I’ve always been thinking that today that shouldn’t be a problem anymore. But for a generation that has been raised under totally different circumstances and other standards it’s not easy to adjust and accept what seems so easy for myself.
So I found myself swallowing and numb in shock when a elderly woman says to me, “No, I don’t want this faggot to touch me” or, “If he’s gonna come to care for me – I’ll scream as loud as I can.” In the first moment, my first reaction was being shocked and appalled but then I took a moment to think and I realized that this generation is so different from my own.
I’ve been raised in a very tolerant environment, even though my dad is very homophobic, or I rather searched myself such a environment. And for me there’s nothing worse than to see people getting bullied because of what they like, whom they love or whatever. For me love is love. Who cares if a guy loves a guy, or a woman loves a woman? Love is Love and we all have a right to love and to be loved.
In my opinion people who act all so mature and spit out homophobic hate are just scared. Scared of things they don’t know anything about. They’re scared of cliches and pre-justice. And this fear doesn’t even give them the chance to look further into the topic and actually learn something about the topic. They just prefer to sit in their little world not a bit open and willing to maybe see something different or even give other’s a chance to show them that, even though their way to live, their way to love might be different, it’s nothing bad or disgusting or deadly at all. It’s just different from what they think is “normal”. But to be open means to look over the border of your own plate and actually step out into the world and get to know something new. Sadly there are still so many people who are not ready for this.
Yet again it’s 2013 and SO MANY great things are happening these days. Gay’s are gaining more and more rights. Gay marriages get legalized. It’s a great time and if we keep up the fight, keep standing up for what we believe in, I’m sure, many more great things are going to happen. The world has changed. And even though I have to accept the opinions of the elderly’s at my workplace, I yet find myself trying to explain to them that it doesn’t matter who loves who. It’s not always about sex (sure it’s a great deal) but it’s not everything. And I’m surely not getting them to love “gay lifestyle”, but maybe I can get them to over think things? Sometimes it works, sometimes it does not. But that’s okay!
So long story short, KEEP fighting. KEEP standing up for WHO you love, keep voicing your opinion. Don’t back down if something doesn’t go the way we might like it. There’s always a next chance. There’s always a new tomorrow. Don’t lose hope. This a good time, a great time to change things.
Please, take a few minutes and actually read this interview from Jake, Benny and RJ! Those three men are probably the most inspiring and amazing men I ever got to know. So humble, so talented and so loving, not only to each other but also to their fans, their fan-base and their models. They’re like the living-prove that love does exist and come in a lot of shapes. In the case of those three it comes in a throuple. Something I have never really got to know before and here I am – blown away and so amazed by their love for each other, the support and acceptance.
A huge thank you to those three for making my world a little brighter, for all the inspirations and strength I have gained trough you – even if you are not aware of it.
And thank you for sharing a piece of it trough this interview. To show a piece of yourself and maybe inspire other’s to do the same and encourage them for their own lives and the future. Just… thank you!
Also a huge “Thank you” to K-lee Klein for doing this interview and for standing up for the cause! Thank you!
I’m gonna shut up now – just read the interview, take these few moments. Read it and share it and join this amazing cause. Help changing the world towards a brighter future, a future where we all have the same rights no matter who we love, who we are and who we support!
