No question we will continue to experience discrimination for the rest of our lives. In addition to the overt discrimination, which we often see and read about, many people will continue to discriminate covertly, and lie while doing it.
One thing I will not do is let the assholes get me down. I've lived through too much, worked too hard, seen too much. This is our one life, and I will live it the best I can.
VERY good point, Carl, one I've made myself elsewhere. Equal rights means IN ALL VENUES, including employment and in patronizing services and businesses, and this is very likely to be one more fight toward completely securing those rights.
I don't think the GOP and the religious "right" is finished quite yet with demonizing the LGBTQI community. Yes, we have finally been given equality when it comes to marriage, but there is still a lot of legally sanctioned discrimination still on the books in many states. We have a lot of opposition ahead of us.
Daniel, as it comes to the GOP looking for "another group to demonize," ultimately I still think they may settle on US - atheists. The problem with such a decision is similar to that with the Mexicans: we're growing in numbers while they're shrinking.I think this behavior and its history need to be pointed out publicly. Not only is scapegoating minorities a reflection of their insecurity and an insult to the egalitarian policies which represent the US at its best, it just plain doesn't work in the long run. If they want to lean on small government and lean spending, traditional Republican planks, I'm fine with that, though I'll still oppose it where it goes too far, but their religiously driven social policies went beyond the pale 10 squares back.It's time for the GOP to grow up and drop their belief in Santa, the Tooth Fairy, and Yahweh.
When God was a female, sex with any man was part of her sacred rites, and inheritance (and power) were through the mother's line.
When the Levites, and other male-god worshippers, took over (by conquest) heterosexual marriage became the only acceptable system because each man wanted to make sure each baby was his. Not taking into consideration the possibility that his wife MIGHT have another lover or three. This is how all the woman-hating verses crept into the buybull.
I wonder if women who loved other women had anything like turkey-basters, and a willing man on the side....
I'm joining the laff-riot.
(Rabbits are not necessarily fwightened widdle animals; they just know how to be quiet and mind their own business. AND when it's needful, they can really BITE! Been there...still have a few scars.)
OHMYDARWIN!!! Queer Weddings??? EEEEWWWWWWW!...
ROFLMFAO!!! Bunch of clueless, frightened little rabbits!
Okay, I'm confused: just what is FoF saving those marriages FROM???
