ladies and gentlemen,
in my most sincere words before anything else, know that every one of you holds dear to me.
you always have enjoyed the comforts of living..
but today i read something i really have grieved about. it was on rage.
it has been our legacy to only do the best. we live and strive to attain the highest possible credits gaining that merit anybody else wanted. we risk ourselves to serve much yet we never enjoy a position where we are totally accepted through your judgments.
to further alleviate us from some minor discomforts in life we have provided good things, if not everything. good entertainment—on your dull and dreary moments for time worth spending with your loved ones. positive, right?
we have given good literature to read. perhaps a fine poetry you can relate with to enlighten your mood? uplift your spirits? we have also written sensible articles and books to incite, stimulate your minds—our desire to spend some quality time with you on your solitary times.. we were never selfish to not share what we’ve got. sad you didn’t even care who’s done what. you were too preoccupied with some other things.
i believe we’d spoken with you when we made things less perplexing amidst all this convolution. but you’ve been nurtured and educated in a manner based strongly on conservatism and tradition: you were quick to judge our deficiency, our imperfection, us being atypical. i didn’t know what infuriated you, perhaps your beliefs have clung already so firmly that your principles and you won’t square some sensitive matters you find too uncompromising..that you have developed disgust and hatred among us.
you went to the world with a thinking that everything that we do is detestable, abomination to say utmost, because of what we are as labeled. those were probably, unconfident to say, what your church have taught you of..quoting out some things from life’s Ultimate Reference a little too literally.
on your most stressful stretch you seized and took away some of your time drawing to your office den listening to a soothing music we happened to compose. to even give yourself some further break you went out to an art museum to see remarkable artworks. we didn’t fail to amaze you.
after that visit you may have realized you could have done better with your newly-renovated bedroom so you again consulted someone who can help—an interior designer. we can only do more for you: we lit the cities, we painted the towns, put pavements on the streets, carved impressive sculptures, erected magnificent structures. we taught the children at schools. we have taken care of the frail and ailing. we clothe the men and groomed them. we turned simple girls into stunning head-turner ladies.
as you browsed on the internet today there again the articles on our depravity, they’re everywhere. so you wrote on the comment section strong words against us. everyone there thrives on negative criticisms... you were livid and pissed as ever.
tired tonight, you went off early to spoil a little on a fine dining restaurant; a cuisine prepared by one of the most fabulous chef of your city. it was an extraordinary meal it even surpassed your preconceptions about fine dining.
…and then you went home. soothing yourself over on that nice designer couch, muscles flexed just staring at the spectacular warm illumination from that piece-of-art lamp you bought from modern designer lighting, and went off to sleep later on the comfort of that bed designed by mitchell gold.
ever wondered who am i and why you have this letter it is to deliver our message. we deserve the merits, make us feel as important, loved. i could be your brother or your sister, or your long-time partner, a spouse, a better-half, your son or daughter, a nephew, your neighbor, a co-worker, an inferior or a boss, your best friend.. or just a random guy on the street who by all those times you’ve come across with but always ignored. i’ll just wait for you when you will be ready.. perchance we can have coffee and talk something interesting later..
with you always,
bender, and the LGBTs
