Do you follow or “like” posts on this asshole’s blog? Then I declare you guilty by association. Maybe it’s not fair, but I feel very strongly about those who spread hate and bigotry. And if you keep giving acceptance to this idiot, then you’re part of the problem. I don’t care if some of his posts are likeable or not. I don’t care if your religion demands that you have backward beliefs about gay people. I don’t care if you’re just paying back Mr. Sedona’s likes on your blog.
Be his blogging friend if you want. This is a free country. But I can see each and every one of you, and if you frequent his blog, then please don’t visit mine. This is my line in the sand.
“Marriage is the most difficult thing in the world,” he said, “I’m talking to you as someone who has been married 24 years, marriage is so difficult that if you do not go to church every Sunday and your whole life isn’t built on a bedrock faith in God and you don’t have kids and your whole life isn’t built around those kids and none of that’s in place and you’re married, the odds of you staying married are close to zero. Divorces will now triple. Gays will never stay married. They just bought themselves the biggest bunch of unhappiness and legal bills that they could ever imagine.”
Oh dear! I’ve been with the same man for 22 years and our lives aren’t built on a bedrock of misunderstood scripture, children who hate us, and the hypocrisy of going to church every Sunday while voting for virulent racists.
My partner and I should probably start saving for the divorce.
40 years ago the Not-Christians said that Gay relationships never last more than six months.
The word: Homosexual was an adjective before it was a noun. Those who desire today to kill homosexuals (and there are many) are the descendents of those who first killed the homosexual in themselves. The quest for a full life of today’s gay liberationists – if it is to be realized – will lift the penalty of death for the homosexual in all women and men.
Gay liberation, on the surface, is a struggle by homosexuals for dignity and respect.
Of course we want to “come out, : (that is, to end our hiding) to forbid such terms as “faggot,” and “dyke,” and “queer,” to hold down jobs without having to play straight, and to change and abolish laws which restrict and denigrate us.
“The goals of gay liberation, including the elimination of capitalism, imperialism, and racism, are premised on the termination of a system based on male privilege.”
I don’t agree with the idea of eliminating regulated Capitalism, but I’d welcome the departure of imperialism and racism.
To look at an isolated event within the context of a timeline is to find a foreshadowing of the present:
Here is what happened in the year leading to Stonewall:
June 18–June 22, 1969 – The National Convention of the Students for a Democratic Society, held in Chicago, collapses, and the Weatherman faction seizes control of the SDS National Office. Thereafter, any activity run from the National Office or bearing the name of SDS is Weatherman-controlled.
