I see a lot of speculation about young people and homopobhia in the USA. I work in a large public school district every week. Those of you who think kids today are more accepting and tolerant are deluded! It's NOT true. I hear the word "Gay" and "Fagot" used every week as a form of slander. Spend some time in school rooms before you make assumptions. With adults saying everything is okay, who are the gay kids going to turn to? You're assumptions and apathy about kids today does not solve the problem of rampant homophobia among young people. It is common place. - Gary
Same sex marriage leads to Hitler cats in drag. THIS is what tolerance leads to.
Jason, I think you're right. What I have noticed, particularily among the younger generation, is a tolerable acceptance. I think as long as their is no compromise, acceptance will follow. This holds true for anything. Thanks for the comments, my friend. Be well.
I think acceptance starts with tolerance. It is impossible without it. I think the move from bigotry to acceptance is in impossible quantum leap for most otherwise.
Great article. Read the comments after. Most seemed to be of the 'tolerant' bent. As in 'I don't care, doesn't affect me, whatever two people want, ' etc. Started me thinking, is tolerance acceptance in these peoples minds? I mean, does tolerance lead to acceptance, or is this just a morally ambigious form of self deceit? Will it lead to a 'deal with the devil', a compromise? As we know personal compromise works, in a limited sense. We can justify it to ourselves. Still doen't make us fully happy. But political compromise doesn't seem to work out as well, just kicks the can down the road for others to wrangle with later. Most of those comments I read I classify as passive tolerance, as in if it happens, okay. If it doesn't, okay. But not acceptance. The fight for acceptance must continue on all fronts. Let me sign off now. Just some of my thoughts when I read the article and comments. As always, be well. Peace.
Massive lesbian / gay wedding ceremony in Cleveland. More than 200 couples.
I want to spend today with positive thoughts.... This video was from the Advocate. Interesting perspective artwork. A point of view that I'm not used to when thinking about Israel.
Remind me to stay away from the caribbean please.
Sandi - Jamaica is gay hell here. here. wikipedia. Time magazine suggested that Jamaica was the most homophobic place on earth. The horrible island nation also has the world's highest murder rate. A lot of the rest of the Caribbean is also described as homophobic. I don't know. Must be something in the tropical air.
