Seriously. The littlest things just tick me off.
oh, and don't forget human stupidity. God, if you're up there...tell Scotty to beam me up.
Star Trek jokes aside, I was just minding my business, browsing through some gay rights stamps and anti-abortion stamps (practically dousing myself in oil, ready for roasting now that I think about it. Flame on, haters, I don't care.) and I was reading some of the arguments that popped up in the stamps. I shall now share my personal opinion on the matters, so help me God. I have a right to do so.
I know I sound angry, my little potato chips. It's because I am. Ignorance will be the death of me. I'm not claiming to know everything, but before I dive into an argument and start flaming the heck out of somebody, I like to take a breath, get my facts straight, and present them reasonably. Thus, a debate ensues and not a meteor shower.
my opinion on gay rights/marriage:
Gay marriage doesn't bother me in the slightest. I support it, really. Two people that love each other are getting hitched. Last time I checked, that's a good thing. Am I going to get in your face if you don't support it? No, not at all. That's your opinion, and everyone's entitled to one.
What really bothers me is when people get anal about it. It's not really that big of a deal. People are not meant to be stuffed into nice, neat little boxes. The world isn't black and white.
Also, hating on gay marriage goes along with the principle that everyone is strictly male/female. That's untrue; there's always been a percentage of the population that are hermaphrodites (people that are both male and female). Should they not be allowed to get married? Technically, that's a gay, lesbian and straight relationship.
Some of the arguments I hear almost make me laugh, though. Just stuff like
At one point (correct me if I'm wrong) I believe the bible says to put homosexuals to death. That'd be murder nowadays. Plus, it's just wrong.
'IT VILATES TEH SANCITY OF MARRYAGE'
Marriage is two people that love each other devoting their lives to one another. That seems like a positive thing.
'TEY CANT HAZ BABEHZ'
So? What's that have to do with the price of tea in China? I mean, there are some cases in straight relationships where the couple can't have children (the woman can't conceive, the man stopped producing sperm, etc). Is that 'inherently evil'?
I also really don't understand just why homosexuality's a sin. I'm straight as a board, always have been. I'm also a Christian. But to me it feels like some kid in biblical times wanted to play a practical joke on a gay friend and like, took some red paint or something and painted on a prophet's wall 'Gays are evil' or something like that and the prophet took it seriously, writing it down in Leviticus. (God, that section is scary. I read it once out of curiosity, slammed the bible shut and haven't picked it up since. It's probably collecting dust on my shelf as I type.)
Also, interesting fact: I recently discovered that there are more sexual orientations than just bisexual, heterosexual or homosexual. This was pretty fascinating to me because I only learned what homosexuality and bisexuality are when I was...eleven, I think? And I like learning new stuff.
asexual - feeling no sexual desire whatsoever
pansexual: completely gender-blind (as opposed to bisexual, which is liking both genders but usually favoring one over the other, so I've heard)
in all honesty, when it comes down to it, I'm pro-choice. Regardless of her actions, a woman should have bodily autonomy. However, I'm all for responsible pro-choice. If you're just annoyed that you'll have a snot-nosed kid running around the house and you don't want the trouble of raising the thing, that's not a reason to abort. You should have logical, clear, well-thought-out reasons as to exactly why you want that abortion. Such as, you can't support the child, the child has some disease that will be extremely painful, the child will die and kill you in birthing, etc.
And if you have a spouse, you should talk it out with them first.
However, if a woman feels she's not physically, mentally or emotionally ready for a pregnancy (not only can there be physical afflictions, there can be a slew of mental problems that come along with pregnancy and childbirth) then she deserves to be able to abort the child. If she feels ready for that, by all means, keep the baby. It's her right, because it's her body.
Okat, I feel a lot better now. If you read this, wow, you are awesome to read all of my ranting. Gold star. A for amazing
