Hey guys. So I just watched Ted, which was surprisingly deep for a comedy film about a talking teddy bear. But anyway... With regard to homophobes, I say life is too f***ing precious to waste it on people like that. You have to put yourself first and to hell with anyone who gets in the way of that. Anything less is a failure to value your limited time in this world correctly.
I enjoyed the movie. It was silly, but it did have a few deep moments.
Anyways, completely agreed. Homophobes should be ignored. What they say should have no effect on your life.
LGBTQ folks are uniquely gifted in that we get to choose our families as opposed to being stuck with those people who share bits of our genomes. The society in which you live is another matter. Even though SC is about to be forced by federal courts to recognize gay marriage, that doesn't change the reality that one can be fired from virtually any job (except federal contractors) simply for being gay. I long for the days of retirement, when I'm not shackled to any state and can choose to live wherever I like.
I actually completely disagree that homophobes should be ignored. Life is not a serenity meme. They should be called out and shamed every time they utter their disgusting and vile vitriol. Homophobia is a social construct, you don't change people's thoughts by sitting quietly in the dark being noble.
Homophobia is largely dying off,with the exception of the internet,which is a generational problem rather then one we can solve right now - the internet is the "final frontier" of all equal rights because it represents humanity at it's pure core
The internet is humanity's voice,unobstructed by all the other noise like politics and oppression
The internet is like Milton's 'mind': it can make a Heaven of Hell, and a Hell of Heaven. It once was the safe refuge for oppressed people, t find like minds, now it is becoming the last vestige of unkind thoughts, trying to find like minds.
Interesting viewpoints. I read an article somewhere which argued that what we're seeing is greater liberalisation in the West and greater repression in other places like Russia and Africa as a consequence and reaction to this. However I think overall the trend is definitely positive. I do agree that we owe a debt of gratitude to those who broke down barriers at their own expense.
I'm not sure I agree with your portrayal of the Internet PB. People present different facets of themselves in different situations and the Internet is no different apart from having some anonymity to make people be more open perhaps. Also the law is increasingly reaching into the Internet to regulate conduct between individuals. Some aspects of humanity are downright barbaric and cruel and the effect of this on real lives in the real world is an appropriate target for mitigation.
What are people doing this weekend?
