Dear Humanity,

My name is Dylan Perkins.
I am 20 years old.
I am a University Student.
I am an Australian Citizen.

I am Gay.

I have a job.
I pay my taxes.
I have parents who love me.
I have friends who I adore.
I am a Human Being.

I am the same as you.

If you speak to me, I will listen.
If you cut me, I will bleed.
If you ask me, I will tell you:

We are the same.

I read books.
I listen to music.
I watch movies.
I hang out with my friends.
I swim.
I walk.
I run.
I sleep.
I wake.
I love.
I breath.
I cry:

You and I are the same.

But I am not treated the same as you.
I am treated differently.
I do not have the same rights as you do.
I cannot marry.
I cannot adopt.
I cannot have security in my relationships.
I cannot be free.

My question to you is: 


You and I breath the same air.
We both fall in love.
We both worry about the future.
We both seek happiness and peace in our lives.

So I ask you again;

Why am I treated differently?

Some speak of the sanctity of Marriage
Yet Divorce rates are high.
Celebrities have fake weddings all the time.
Is marriage really still sacred in this modern era?

Some tell me that the Bible calls me an abomination
But how well do you follow the commandments of that Book?
Thou shalt not kill,
Thou shalt not commit adultery,
Thou shalt not steal,
Does everyone follow these?
Am I any more abominable than anyone else?

You may say I make generalisations
But generalisations are made about me
I am judged and found lacking even before I show you who I am

Why am I not treated the same?

Is it because you are afraid that I am different from you?
I am not!
My sexuality is an issue only because it is made into one!
It is not my sexuality that is important,
It is my humanity.

I am Human.
You are Human.
We are the same.
I simply ask that you treat me as such.

Okaaaay, first things first mcgooglykins  linked me to this and OH MY GOD! SO. MUCH. LOVE!

And now onto the main attraction. I have decided to steal this picture meme from bergann  because it looks like fun.

Ask me to take a picture of any aspect of my life that you're interested in/curious about - it can be anything from my DVD collection to my favorite pair of shoes. Leave your choice(s) here as a comment, and I will reciprocate by taking the pictures and posting them as an entry. That way you get to know a little bit about my life.

Seriously, go wild.

Hey kiddies,
I am rather impressed with myself at the current moment, because I am up before midday. It's like ever since uni finished for the semester, my body has had this unquenchable urge to make up for any and all lack of sleep I may have been subject to during uni, which could be okay I s'pose, but, y'know, not so much. 
Anyway, I am going to Supanova on sunday with Jerrica and Samantha, and Lucy will be there too and I have to say - I haven't seen her since literally last year, so that should be kinda cool :D

Anyway, I've seen this meme floating around and thought I might fill it out. 

1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicise those you intend to read.
3) Underline the books you LOVE.
4) Reprint this list in your own LJ so we can try and track down these people who've read 6 and force books upon them ;-)

You know, do the polite thing. 
Assure you that I'm not going to blow you up and that I will indeed try to use this regularly. :D
