Equality? PT1

Posted in Gay Rights, Love, Politics, Rant with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 13, 2010 by phoenixjeff

A foreign concept in deed for the United States at this point in time, is Equality. Hateful, bigoted people want to, and are succeeding in denying rights to a myriad of individuals, right now I’m talking about the EXTENDED GLBTIQ Community. Gays, Lesbians, Bi-Sexuals, Trans-Gendered, Intersex, and Questioning(sometimes Queer) individuals…..

Supposedly, according to the Right and a few “Moderate” individuals, the 14 Amendment doesn’t apply to the “GLBTIQ” community. I do NOT advocate the changing over night of a nation, what I do argue against is that this would be an over night change, that somehow the legalization of Gay Marriage would have detrimental consequences to “families”, as if their haven’t been children brought up in gay household for centuries., what these people are really saying is that a “gay family” isn’t good enough, and their children don’t deserve to have their parent’s love for eachother validated by their state, their Slave’-Taxing STATE, for thats the onyl definition I can give an institution that unFairly taxes their cisitzens.

I have a Myriad discontent to voice about the mistreatment of the  Trans-Gendered and Intersexed community, like their continued lumping in with the gay community much to their Chagrin. These people ARE NOT a Sexuality like, Gay, Lesbian, and Bi-Sexual, for they can either of those. Trans-Gendered people and Intersexed people are GENDERS!! and Sexes!!…A Trans-Man for example can be either Gay or Bi-Sexual, this may be a concept hard to grasp but its the truth…so many details so little time, Goodness forbid that someone take the time to learn about people other than themselves, and grasp the basic human fact that the world and all of our experiences are relative and not black and white set in stone.

Marriage for the Gay Community is FAR from the only worry the gay community has to face, in my opinion Hate Crimes protections are Paramount, followed by Adoption and Worker’s Rights, but seeing as though Marriage comes with 1000s of unspoken rights, Gay Marriage has moved to the forefront of the Gay Rights Movement. I do not believe that who I have sex with should be a legal means of deprivation of my Livelihood, basically I shouldn’t be able to be fired from my job for Gay Sex. The “Ick” factor has been used in various “tasteful” articles these passed few months, for the feeling straight men get when thinking about two-men kissing as opposed to lesbians. This isn’t valid, I don;t understand how in a society as socially and technologically advanced as ours that this is accepted SCIENCE, and Political Logic?!

Adoption should be a no brainer, a child wants to be loved. The “Right” would rather deny a child a family, and be alone than to allow a child a loving caring household…

They Equate Homosexuality with Bestiality and Pedophilia, simply put Gay MEN are rapists of everyone including animals. The Right argues that opening up Gay Marriage nationally will lead to Beast-Human Marriages and Child-Man Marriages, seriously? Theres a BIG GIGANTIC difference….animals and children are not consenting adults, and Animals Children cannot sign CONTRACTS, so how would this open up any type of Marriage except those performed by TWO consenting Adults…..but then even if that argument is negated logically, someone will always play the Polygamy card….I wont even get started…

Some might argue that they just want marriage for straight people and don’t mind civil unions. I negate this with various websites, and propaganda filled television interviews that denounced gay marriage and ALL marriage “related” institutions…so once again GAY RIGHTS ORGANISATIONS that point is inValid….we need to get smart, we need to get organised and we need to separate ourselves from those mis-informed Gay “Rights” workers who would advocate Civil Union over Marriage because its “easier”…I’ll bring up one of my favorite all-time Quotes from the Original Civil Rights Movement of the 60s…”Seperate is NOT Equal” my anybody’s Scales…

United States: Health Care Bill

Posted in Politics with tags , , , , on December 24, 2009 by phoenixjeff

I don’t understand what’s going on in Washington. It used to be that the United States was the leader in world Progressiveness, well in the technical sense on the world stage. Our country represented something the “American Dream”, to me more and more that dream is for new comers to the country and not those of us who have ancestor who built it. Before I begin to ramble let me get to the meat and potatoes per-say, it makes absolutely no sense to me that people are complaining about a “Public Option” saying its socialism.

To me this is a certain group of people way of getting re-elected leading me to believe more and more than people don’t care about the nation as much as they care about power and the money they are receiving from these lobbyists from the insurance companies. It scares me also, because I dont want our country to end up like the dystopic United States of the movie “Manchurian Candidate” where every form of government around the world has been infiltrated by super-corporations. If it does happen..or already has..we would never know, for we are just the little people.

As far as socialism goes, that argument can easily be defeated by simple logic. We all pay for things everyday that we may never use, insurance in general is a “what if” expense. Nobody complains about property taxes going to public schools and we all have to pay those, no matter if you live in a house or apartment, rent goes toward a piece of lands property taxes to. You may never need to call the police or use an ambulance but tax dollars go to these things everyday, and lets not even mention how many tax dollars goes to the most well-funded military on Earth. I don’t understand how people are saying its socialism to take care of your citizens, which is the sole purpose of the government in general. If thats socialism, then we need a little bit of it, as a matter have we have allot of it on some level or another, how dare Republican and conservative Democrats use this as a weapon against the President…its not entirely their fault though, Americans have notoriously been interested in propoganda, just look at the entertainment industry’s handling of Tiger Woods, they didnt only go after his personal life, but his Sports record…for shame..

Ugh, I love Politics, and even though they may be boring, or “corrupt”, there will always be something to talk about.. :O)
