So today I was checking LiveJournal. Like I do. And someone had posted to an icon community I watch for the show "One Tree Hill" with an icon that was pure text, defining, dictionary style, marriage as being between a man and a woman.
I was...kind of confused at first. One Tree Hill is, at least in my opinion, very queer friendly. More importantly, the icon had nothing to do wih the show. I just didn't want it on my friends page.
If the post were about the icon, or were in some kind of discussion community, or was from someone I knew I would reply with how much it bothered me. But this doesn't seem the context for that.
The thing is, I can't figure out if what the person did was wrong. I know it upset me, but it wasn't like the icon said that god hates fags. I feel like it was inappropriate to use that icon, but if it were an icon about how marriage is for everyone I know I wouldn't have reacted the same way. Both would hurt and offend people, both are irrelevant to the show, but one I agree with and one I find offensive, ignorant, and ugly in sentiment. I believe in freedom of expression, but well-
I just don't want that hate on my friends page. I don't know the correct course of acton here.
