We're not broken, we're wired differently by kingpin1055 We're not broken, we're wired differently by kingpin1055
One of the commonly-used arguments of the anti-gay/anti-lesbian/anti-bisexual/anti-transgender/anti-same-sex marriage crowd is that our orientation, our feelings, our sexual preference is "a choice" - a rather offensive and dismissive way of summing up something that is written into our very fabric even if not necessarily into our genetics.

In response to those who ridicule the nature of our orientation and attraction, I've been inspired to create the above concept, featuring the international symbols for man and woman and the colours of Gilbert Bakers's rainbow flag to highlight the fact that it's a part of our nature, and was never a choice... a response similar to Lady Gaga's "we were born this way", but without any issues of the concept being born from the lyrics of a song:

We're not broken, we're wired differently.

Great job! Very interesting concept. The only criticism I have is that maybe you should mix a hetero man with a women in there as well. To properly portray all forms of relationship equality standing side by side. Otherwise, great work as usual!

Hmm, I'll have a look into that.

Thanks for the critique, Johnny. :)

One of the best gay right arts I'd ever saw.
