          Dear Mr. President,  

                Hello, my name is Autumn Contreras and I’m going to be an incoming freshman here at CSU Chico.  Today in our society, LGBT discrimination is a major issue. It has fi

    • Well for starters I really enjoyed reading your writing, and I totally agree with everything you wrote about. I too this year came out to every body, my friend, family, and school. However I am bi not lesbian and my coming out probably was not as hard as yours was. I have had a lot of people come up to me and ask me about it and most people are really accepting but of course there are always those few people who try to bring me down and judge me for being me. I mean yeah its hard having to talk about this with people especially family because its such a sensitive and new topic to people. Im really glad I read your article because it really helped me realize that what I have at the moment isnt so bad and all the negative people in my life right now trying to bring me down will eventually well leave me alone about it and realize that its not such a big deal. 🙂

    • Dear Autumn :
      I am amazed by your post about “LGBTQ Rights”.Because coming out to the world about your sexuality is a fearful situation when acceptance is not always assured.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “ I categorize myself in the LGBT even though we shouldn’t have labels for anything or anyone”.
      Another sentence that I agree with was: “ I do have to admit that our generation has gotten better with fully accepting the LGBT community than back in the 1900’s”. This stood out to me because I also agree that our growing generation are finding themselves to be more accepting and it’s a great comfort to know that the world will grow not to judge but to learn and understand.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because the way you explained how you felt about the situation and gave the readers details makes me eager to anticipate your next reading.
