I’ve witnessed this popular trend develop over Facebook in the last several months. These Confession pages are meant to be an outlet; for the typical social media user who needs to vent every once and a while. These pages offer a link that allows the user to submit a post anonymously for thousands of followers to see. Sometimes it can be overwhelming due to the high volume of confessions getting sent over a certain period of time. I’m only following 3 myself because any more, and those are the only posts you see in your news feed!
I made my first confession on Prison City Confessions about my views on the debates happening now in the Supreme Court. This was prompted by something that infuriated me in my news feed. Someone I knew in high school posted this picture with the status “How it should be and remain”.
I definitely don’t go out of my way to cause confrontations, so that’s why I wanted this to be a confession. It’s just a real personal issue to me because I have quite a few gay friends. And it’s weird that I have to admit that, but it’s the truth and I’ve never had a problem with it. I don’t look at my gay friends any differently than I do my straight friends.
I realize now that there’s no reason for me to be ashamed of my opinion. Friends are friends, and I will absolutely support my friend’s right to be together. This is my confession:
“I’m a straight guy, but all these same-sex debates really do affect me, too. I’ve been in college for the last 3 years and have met so many awesome gay people. It just seems ridiculous that our rights should be any different. I can’t believe people are still homophobic to the point that they’d deny someone else’s happiness.. Get a freaking life! Gay couples deserve the right to get married and be with the one they love just as much as anybody else does. Is that not right? If you don’t think so, then you have a serious problem. If you’re against same-sex marriage because of the bible, then i’m done with you. .I won’t debate this subject with anyone who refuses to use logic.My parents were religious too, but they raised me well enough to let me think for myself. If there really is a God, I’d like to think he’d want us to be accepting of others. All this hate and judgement is what’s really wrong with our world. Don’t let your religion blind you from something that’s right in front of your face.” – Taylor Henderson
