On one hand gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgendered and intersexed – along with kinky straight people – are deemed lesser than other citizens and undeserving of rights because we are somehow different from so called “regular and moral people”
and yet neither gay sex nor lesbian sex results in unwanted or teen pregnancies or place the woman’s life or health in danger of pregnancy or creates the need for reproductive rights legislation which assures a woman to have control over her own body and that includes the right to abortion….
it would seem to to some minds, we are damn if we do and damn if we don’t.
and it occurs to my mind that these people claim to believe in a deity of a religion in which judging people is reserved for the deity.
and you know: Jesus had 2 Dads
kidding, he didn’t exist.
It’s interesting to me how alarmed, concerned, freaked out that some straight people are over gay sex – with never a whisper about lesbian sex
Just as an aside, these usually religious righteous straight types actually are more obsessed with gay sex than any gay person is.
Do you think it’s a Queen Victoria thing – women don’t do that?
Or that women on women is somehow less threatening?
Or that women are second class so it doesn’t matter?
It might be because many men are convinced that lesbian sex isn’t real or it’s just what gals do in between men for for a male audience.
Or that we’re convertible……
Is that why these offended and frightened straights fear gay sex so much? They worry that it’s them who are convertible?
If that is the case, then fearing makes no sense, since if they were convertible, they’d like it.
Sex is risky and life threatening, regardless of gender and orientation. The more partners a person has, the higher the chances they will have sex with a risky person.
There’s all kinds of sexually transmitted diseases – AIDs is hardly the only one.
But it’s risky sex that’s the risk, not sex per se.
If you really want to reduce AIDS in gay men – and I notice you ignore that lesbians have the lowest AIDs rate of all the groups – then the best response is a combination of education, circumcision, and encouraging stable and monogamous relationships.
Let’s just say it: Gay Marriage.
Cold hard truth is that marriage settles people down to monogamous relationships – sure some will stray, just like some straights stray now.
And, let’s say this cold hard truth: AIDS is not a gay disease. Globally, it’s Heterosexual. It only has the gay stigma in the US/Canada because gay men were the first to be diagnosed with it.
And everyone should be glad that they did, because AIDS is an equal opportunity killer and there are no innocent or deserving victims – there are just people who got it through bodily fluid contact – sex, needles or blood.
Gay Marriage is not going to change marriage – straight people will still marry – what gay marriage will change is the gay community.
Gay isn’t going away, the bill of rights does not contain a footnote that reads “this offer is not valid for gay people”, so, if the real concern is the spread of disease, then encourage a behavior change – reduce the risk, make gay marriage legal.
we’re here, we’re queer, get over it already
stop projecting your insecurities and problems onto that we exist
behaving a particular way doesn’t offer reward or rights, conformity is non-adaptive and anti-social.
Are my thoughts queer or is it just because I am that they are deemed so?
but you know, when you consider the calibre and force – the absolute truth of the words and assess the quality of thought
queer really becomes a value added to the thought
outsiders can better compete in the market place of ideas, because we’re not grabbing for the blandest most mass appeal words to say and really, the volume of lies and distortions, the public political process has lost all sense of truth or morality and is invested in complete imaginary replacement of anything that resembles reality.
but the public believes it and it becomes real in a sense after a while
because people are really unwilling to find out about things that they don’t know about.
and really, if you had any courage or conviction or genuine belief in what you believe; then information that contradicts it shouldn’t be a threat to you to the point of corrupting the education of the population or engaging in so many lies to obtain power.
in total contradiction of your stated values that you say qualify you for office.
well, the only criteria for office is being willing to sell out to the highest bidder
and that means that you have no morals to sell out.
