I am a bit ornery this morning. Looking at last night’s post put me right back into that mood. Lol
Here’s what I don’t get. I understand if a person’s “God” is morally opposed to being gay and abortions. Ok. Fine. Suit yourself. But don’t go trampling over other people’s rights because of it.
It would be one thing if it was like “hey, the world is a wonderful place where we nurture and take care of each and every child born into it”, so thereby abortion could indeed be seen as a travesty (maybe) but nooooooo, we live in a world that can’t even give enough love and support to the children that do have parents that care….. let alone the kids that have no one. Anyone heard any good stories lately about foster kids? Homeless kids? Immigrant kids? Need I go on?
Then ok…let’s go to the “being gay is against nature” thing. Is it? I don’t believe that scientific evidence backs that theory except for the procreation bit maybe and well….you can refer back to the last paragraph for my stance on that. Don’t we have too many kids already in this world and also……a lot of gay (lgbtqia) people want to have kids and families and get married. They want to conform to traditions and society. They just like to enjoy what they enjoy sexually. If it’s within the age, consent and desire of all involved…why should anyone give a fuck?
Seriously like people must be so bored to take on these fights of hatred and intolerance. Why can’t people be part of the solution? Be part of spreading compassion and love…….and to top it all off…most of these crusades are carried on by religion. That boggles my mind even more. Religion seems nothing more than a game of “I’m better than you” to me sometimes and it just makes my stomach churn.
Not to say there aren’t wonderful aspects to most religions, because they seem to all have their own merits but in general…..I think I’d rather start a cult than be part of any religion. The only one at this point in time I would consider joining is maybe the Unity Church down the street. They are the only church I know that openly welcomes trans people too and they are very non-denominational and inclusive and some have female pastors, which I love. But group activities have, generally speaking, never been my thing really.
I’m not trying to keep harping here. But these things just don’t make sense to me. The judgement. The superiority. The looking down on people without even bothering to see where they are in life, what they need, how we can support them. To see what their own life journey is about.
I am of the firm belief that every single problem has a win/win solution. It’s just that this may include giving people space to be themselves, to take care of themselves in the way they need and know how to. We are not all alike. I get that. But fundamentally speaking we all want pretty much the same things in life: happiness, love, acceptance, a feeling of belonging plus all the comforts (trappings) and accolades (pompousness) of modern society. Don’t we? Most people do it seems.
But you know what…….
Sometimes I actually like being angry. Sometimes like this morning, running on 5 hours of sleep and headed into a full day of work I can actually use that jolt of energy. Leave it to me to always find the silver lining somewhere. Lol
Enjoy your day!!
