Shame on you all

Dear Editor,

Re: Street talk about fa’afafines

You are all very disappointing human beings. 

Pervading your views, you all know absolutely nothing about what makes people ‘ people’. What shocks me even more is how completely narrow minded all of these people are. Using the ‘holy book’ as a cover for what you think? 

Or maybe that is how you think? 

Do you know what the history is of the ‘holy book’ (you’d be surprised)? 

And why it is dangerous to take such a narrow view of its teachings? 

As human beings we are complicated, and everyone seeks acceptance, Samoa is becoming a very warped brain washed society where instead of hearing actual facts about a deed, I get a bible verse and a full stop.

It is also disappointing to see a young child (19) with a simple ( non informative), automated (almost machine-like) answer to something he can not fathom fully. And the 45 year old woman saying there is only a “boy” and “girl” ...”Anything is rubbish” is just sad a pathetic and ignorant. 

I hope you all get clarity. Junior (22) gets it, respecting people for who they are, good on you. As for the rest of you, shame on you all.
