I'm very shocked that a few topics have popped up that discourage LGBT rights/code. This community is a legal community, not an underground illegal trade. @LGBT.Coder can make a project about this if she wants, because Hopscotch is a place where
That's what makes Hopscotch such a beautiful place, not because of code, but because we are one of the most diverse communities out there.
We have people from Europe, Africa, Asia, South America, Australlia. We have different religions such as Christianty, Hinduism, Buddhism, Muslim
If we said LGBT was against a Christian religion, how would a Hindu and Buddhist feel? That's like telling them you can't pray at your own house with idols because that's against your religion
I am standing up for people like @LGBT.Coder
Because people don't necessarily want to talk about this, because it's against certain religions, it will cause flame wars. But really, if we just respect what she has to say, and we let people code, we can have a positive impact on this.
Imagine what she or others who are apart of the LGBT community are going through when they read
THIS IS NOT APPROPRIATE
THIS IS AGAINST MY RELIGION
There could be many people in the forum that have an LGBT family member or they could be one themselves, how is it fair that you say that to them? As long as we are here to code, there. Is. No. Problem.
My best friend is bisexual, and I simply said
We're still humans, we still talk, and think, don't we? We just think in different ways, you're still beautiful in every way
Why don't we just think like that when we see LGBT.Coder? She's making a collab, she's nice, and people slam her right away
It's not fair.
Hopscotch is a place where EVERYONE can broaden their perspectives and learn from others. I was forced to go to "Church" and learn about Christianity to pass History, but we're not forcing you to accept this. You must respect them as we will respect you.
We are still humans, we just think differently.
Please, if your Christian or in another religion that's against this, please consider not reading it or remember this topic. Please try and encourage LGBT coders, as they may not be doing so well in real life, but we can teach them here
