Scene 2 Take 1

Scene 3 Take 1
C: Why do these people behave like that?
How can there be people like that in this world?
What is wrong with these people?
(C is a female doctor. Another doctor was after her husband who is also a doctor.)
The same story line continues...... over and over again.
We live in such a homophobic world. I do not see how this is different from apartheid. We are being profiled and chastised just because we are different.
How does a person's sexual preference obstruct or cloud his judgment? How does ones action, lifestyle and believe affect the life of others who form the majority? What happened to accepting and respecting each individual for his right of existence and living?
Of course it is wrong to go after another heterosexual. What more when he is already taken. In this case married.
Sometimes our behaviour is less than desired. But there are bad apples all around including within the heterosexual community. So why the discrimination and stereotyping?
