I feel like I’m going to explode with anger.
I am sick of people spreading false information.
I am tired of people sticking their heads in the ground.
I am sick and tired of people pushing their ignorance and hatred onto other people.
Go away, you stupid f#cks.Protiguous, 2020
I don’t care what your gender/preference/orientation is.
LGBTQIAP+ .. whatever.
Really. I don’t care. We all have preferences. You are no different than the rest of the world. We [should] all have the same rights.
I don’t care if you ‘come out’ or if you keep it ‘locked up’.
(You should be who you truly are.)
It doesn’t matter to me what you like to poke it in, or like to be poked from, or with, or where, or not at all.. as long as it is mutually consensual (and both are reasonably aged, you goddamn pedophiles).
But: I am so tired of hearing it on the news, seeing it on TV, movies, plastered over social media.. so STOP SHOVING IT IN OUR FACES! (Here’s looking at you, Star Trek’s: ‘Discovery’! If I wanted to see two men making out in the engine room, I’d go join a ship again or fire up PornHub! I’m sure it’s on there somewhere..)
If God has a problem with your preference: He will take that up with you in the afterlife.
If Nature has a problem with your preference, she will intrinsically breed out of existence that which does not propagate.
If NEITHER ONE has a problem with it, then NEITHER should you!
So I tell you this: It is not our/society’s place to shun or promote any choice related to mutually consensual sex of reasonable ages.
My, deeply personal, opinion is that ‘gay’ marriage is an oxymoron.
I believe two people of the same gender cannot truly love each other the same way a man and a woman love each other. Lust? Sure, easily. But Love? Nope. I just haven’t seen any proof.. YET.
But I will NOT stop you, or put you down, or in any way not allow you to live your lifestyle choice, as long as what you do is totally mutually consensual.
I’m sure some asshat will take a warped view of my comments as “your way allows [insert nasty bigoted view here]!”.
NO, it does not. Consensual implies informed.
Alcohol, drugs, and youth all impair one’s judgement.. and that prevents the ‘mutually’ consensual part.
Abusing trust, authority, responsibility, or lying is not consensual!
- Every Being is initially created equal.
- Every Being initially has the right to live.
- Every Being has the right to defend itself.
- Every Being has the right to communicate.
- Every Being must accept the consequences of its actions.
I use the word Being to go beyond the narrow scope of person, country, planet, or lifeform. Meaning sentient robots, talking cows, androids, aliens, and yes, even lawyers, are all covered by these Universal Rights.
For example (sorry vegans): Earth cows do NOT have these Rights until a cow communicates to us earthly humans that it [they] do not want to be eaten [read: slaughtered] anymore. That they deserve and want the protection of these Rights. Or that we humans discover/realize that they are intelligent creatures and thereby deserving of protection.
I want the wording to be vaguely-specific. No set of rules can encompass all actions, desires, and outcomes by listing each and every combination of factors. (Talk about a Cartesian explosion!!)
I know philosophers have been wondering things for thousands of years. Does our mind think for our bodies? Do we have spirits? Do we even exist? Does anything really exist?
Whether there is a God and an afterlife, where we may be punished or even rewarded for what we do in life… or if there is Nothing. As in poof you’re gone. No more. Entropy wins. Everything freezes to Nothing.
I say to you. It doesn’t matter which is truer…. so do your best to do your best. Make Everyone as happy and comfortable as you can. This includes You. Just remember “Everything in Moderation”.
Just thinking around down here…
The degrees of goodness: helping, nurturing, caring.
The degrees of badness: murdering, harming, stopping, hindering, and annoying.
The degrees of intent: willful (deliberate), involuntary, ignorant.
The degrees of thought: premeditated, random, intentional, unintentional.
The Levels of Evil:
- Willful and premeditated killing of another Being. (murder)
- Willful and premeditated harming of another Being.
- Directly harming another Being without intent.
- Indirectly harming another Being by negligence or carelessness.
- Accidentally harming another Being.
- Allowing harm to come to another Being.
- Allowing harm to come to oneself.
Abortion is murder. Please read this page through to the end.
Are we both in agreement about the definition of murder?
Good. Glad we agree.
So then what is abortion? We all know what the act itself is.
To kill a baby. An innocent baby.
A life that you started.
By whatever means, planned or unplanned, You had some role in its creation.
Even if that act was instigated by an evil act/person.
Sad, but true. Every choice in your life led up to that moment of conception. Whether you walked through the park, or drank too much at the party, or whatever. If You had made another choice, chosen another option (decided to NOT have sex), You would have been somewhere else and not gotten pregnant.
BTW, I firmly believe rape is one of the most heinous & wicked crimes one can commit against another person.
BUT, that evil act does not make the baby bad, or disgusting, or a bastard, or any other vile word you can think of.
The baby, that human, is innocent. Why would you punish that little bundle of life, of joy, for something two other humans did? It has committed no crimes, harmed no one. All that it knows is that life -until now- has been good.
If you’re arguing to the likes of “It’s her body!“.. Doesn’t that exact same logic also apply to the baby also? It has its own body. You can’t apply one level of sanity to yourself then deny another life that very same right.
You might try to rationalize that abortion is okay because the baby hasn’t been born yet. What the freakin difference does it make if the baby is inside the mother or outside? Just because the mother is removed from around the baby, the baby doesn’t suddenly become self sufficient! The child is totally helpless inside or outside.
Kind of arbitrary to declare any person has a right to live or die because they changed housing.. Don’t you think?
You might to to rationalize that abortion is okay because the baby isn’t alive yet. (Uh.. what?? Who really thinks that?)
Growing, moving, reacting, laughing, and thinking.
Sure seems alive to me.
Oh, “babies don’t think yet” you say..? (Science says they do.)
Is your compassion for someone limited to your estimation of their intelligence?
BTW, babies do think. Try talking to your child. Yes, now.
Look into its eyes. (That is, if you don’t murder it first.)
You might to to rationalize that abortion is okay because ‘the mother wasn’t planning it’.. or it’ll be ‘tough on the mother’.. or ‘the world is too tough/horrible/bad/evil’.. or that ‘she’s not ready to be a mother‘.. or that ‘she had other plans‘.. or that ‘its her body‘.. In the words of Penn & Teller, “BULLSHIT!“.
Hardly a human on this earth is prepared to take care of another new life.. at first. But we all can learn from each other and our mistakes. The world is literally getting better every year. Crime is falling, nations are rising, technology is helping everyone connect.
But all tend to manage. We live, we love, we survive.
Please don’t murder children.
They have as much right to live as we do.
There are two times that I can fully understand the need for an abortion.
1: Where the mother’s life is at stake. It’s up to her to decide the fate.
2: Where the baby will not be able to live to birth. Again, it’s the mother’s choice.
I will argue until the bitter end, beg of you, to please make the right choice. Let the baby live. Give it up for adoption if you must!
But, I am not without compassion and understanding.. I will not shame you for deciding what must be the hardest decision you will ever make. I will still be your friend.
Heck, I might even drive you to the clinic.
