This is a touchy subject and one that can cause problems such as death threats. I am going to risk it all and say what needs to be said. Look I am straight and I am happy to be that way. Just like I do not want my rights to be threatened I do not want to see the rights of people who live alternative lifestyles threatened. Just like I want to be happy I recognize the happiness others wish to pursue.
With that being said here are my problems with this rights issue.
1. Buisinesses are being forced to create wedding cakes for those that pursue same sex marriage even though they do not believe in it.
Look I know it sucks you might not be able to buy the cake that you want or that dress whatever it is you are being denied because of your sexuality. That is really a painful thing that others cannot see that two humans want to buy something to celebrate the commitment they are making. Considering the fact the economy is hurting it is kind of lame that small buisinesses would not want the money drawn into the location. Lets talk about beliefs for a second. Not every Religion supports the idea of equal marriage among everyone. When others protest against that business because they do not support equal marriage rights its inflicting right issues against that business. THE RIGHT TO PURSUE RELIGIOUS FREEDOM. Those that do not accept your il”legal” tender are not telling you they hate you but they do not want to sell out their religious beliefs for Gold. Does that make sense? It is kind of like a celebrity that claims Christianity (Katie Perry) but then tells little girls to be famous they must sell their soul to the Devil. No I am not saying you are selling your soul to the devil by supporting the same gender community. That is not it at all. However you are selling out your beliefs if you choose to support it even though your religious beliefs say not to. Does that make sense? I hope it does.
The Solution: Find a business who does not care who you are or what you believe. Who simply do a good job and want to make money. Maybe you can find a business that DOES support YOUR marriage. Wouldn’t you rather work with someone anyway who is happy for you? Genuinely happy? I know I would vs someone who is putting angry energy into my wedding cake.
You need to find good local quality goods without suing someone over your rights. When you sue someone over your rights you are denying them of their own rights. Nobody wants rights denied either way. It is not fair for a business to make CNN or Fox News for refusing service and being sued.
Celebs Speaking Out
It makes me sad that we live in a society full of insecure people who feel the need to have to speak out on their sexuality. It does not affect me who you are with or what you do. I love the talent that celebrities share with us. I do not love their sexuality whether they are straight or not. We follow you because you have a skill and we admire it. We do not want to be influenced by others sexual decisions and choices. We need to move on past the barbaric mindset of sexuality separation. It really is no big deal who someone else loves unless it is involved with your children or marriage directly. Which then it becomes a personal problem. I hope that it does you love your children no matter who they are or what they are for who they are. The Divine created them therefore they deserve to be loved? Got it? Love does not include judgment. Love includes learning and growth. Ellen Page recently spoke out and I remember her for her talent in movies like Juno and the other one where she was in that skating competition. I love her spirit as a person I believe she is a young centered good person who can do amazing things. Did I care she is not straight? No. I love her talent and the good she brings to the world. At least the good I HOPE she does bring. Sexuality has nothing to do with it.
Gender in the Military
If I am a straight person who is married or single I do not want to have to worry about someone that is non straight to hit on me if I was in the military. That is a fear of mine having males hit on me and it happens. Rape on both sides happen. That is the scary fact. Women would bunk with women to separate the rape risk between men and women. Men chill with men in the sleeping quarters to avoid women from raping them. Now what if you have someone that is the same sex who has an addiction? This leaves straight men and women potentially open to not be in a safe place. I have been almost raped by someone of the same sex as me. It is not a fun experience an unfortunately this does happen. It is scary to have another female try to climb on top of you against your consent. I shoved this person backwards and they did not get very far. Sadly this is not the circumstance every person experiences. Rape happens in both the straight and the non straight communities. Can we have females who like females and males who like males in the same sleeping quarters without rape occurring? I hope and pray as a society one day we can. Until every person grows up and can look at someone without seeing breasts or the penis and they only see a human being we will never see a safe environment like that. Until then we need to find away to allow people of any gender to safely pursue a career. I hope that makes sense. It is not anything against lesbians or gays it is simply as a straight person I do not want to be held down by a female or two who thinks I am sexy. Once again this was almost my reality and it does happen.
If your parents do not accept you or another family member does not for who you are know that is okay. That does not make them a bad person they simply cannot digest it considering the religion. If they are threatening towards you that is very sad because no matter who we are or what we do or have done we are still human beings. That is the thing all of us are human. If you do have someone that is close to you that is this way try to move past the religious side of it and love that family member because they are a human being. Look at the good that they do not just what you see as bad.
Please do not force what you want to do on another religion that is not very fair. Just like you want freedom to live your life without persecution so do people of certain religions. Unfortunately Priests and Pastors receive death threats for refusing services. Unfortunately people who ask for services or permission to get married receive death threats. Is it fair on either end? No never. It is not. There are states that allow Court house marriages. There are churches that allow same sex marriages. Find one that SUPPORTS you. Do not force someone to support you through suing. That is not okay. You are literally wrecking someone else’s life over your beliefs? There own financial stability? Is it okay to destroy others just to get a point across? I understand getting rid of businesses that support slave labor or child labor. Getting rid of a business or a church because it does not support a lifestyle is barbaric.
Am I living in the Middle Ages?
What’s my time period Again?
The LBGT community is actually causing distractions from other issues like:
We create war by forcing the rights of other people on others who do not wish to have them. Look at the conquering of the Catholic Church…????? Forcing Jesus on others did not create world peace nor will it ever. Just like forcing the same sex issue on straight people will not help them accept you it will only make them angry at you as they see their own religious rights dissolve. Once again work with businesses and organizations that support you!!!!!
If this pollution continues you will never get to enjoy being married anyway. You will simply hold the hand of the one you love while you both die of cancer or suffocation. It is your pick at the current pollution rates. Can we stop focusing on the rights of everyone and do something so we can have rights to live for???? Because none of us are going to live long if we keep allowing chemtrails to happen just sayin.
Once again what time period am I living in? Why do people work for only a few cents a day in this “modern” society just so I can go to FailMart and buy my goods at a low low cost. It is not a low cost when other people are beat or work in cold conditions or conditions that are to hot. Or a child skips out on learning to read because they are paying for their disabled parents. Should you be allowed to buy a rug that a child broke their back over to make? No that should be against everyones rights. But unfortunately it is not.
When will we stop being distracted by an issue that should not be an issue to begin with?????
Can we please move on no matter what community we are involved with and choose to focus on a better society? It will not be created through screaming about marriage. We need to be screaming about pollution, genocide, war, greed, poverty, and modern slavery.
Nobody wants their daughter sold to a pimp as a sex slave. As long as a family is starving someone’s son or daughter has a price on their head.
Please realize debates like this are simply a DISTRACTION from what is REAL.
P.S. I am a straight person who loves everyone and I really do not care who you love. If you feel like you want to be married go ahead and do that. If a piece of paper tells you that you are in love then go get that piece of paper. Because that is all your love will become that LEGAL TENDER to BENEFITS as a COUPLE. Is there love in money? No. So if you want that piece of paper like a straight person can go get go ahead and get it. You deserve to be equally as miserable under a piece of paper as the straight community has been for thousands of years. Look at the divorce rates if you do not believe me.
That piece of paper does not define LOVE. -END RANT
