    I am a lesbian. I live in Kentucky

    and It makes me sad to think that I may have to move out of state to marry someday. We need equality here as well!

    Offensive? Maybe, But We've Come A Long Way In 70 Years

    This article appeared in 1943 in a magazine called "Mass Transportation."  For those who may find it offensive, the good news is that we've come a long way.  If it seems funny, it's because of how far we've come in much of the world.  I'm a man, but I have women in my life and...

    than the simplicity of the concept itself - everyone is human. That is all that matters.

    Why are people labeled? I actually find myself comfortable talking to bullied people.

    My niece said something to my sister

    Double Standards

    Much of the inequality I feel is down to the way I am perceived and viewed by others, and the expectations by society to live and act to a certain standard, which differs from that of a man. Think about this. If a young man keeps a very untidy and messy apartment, he is not...

    Everyone is equal at the start.

    It just changes when we degrade our view on ourselves or if we think ourselves higher. Not only that! But, if we have 5 school days, shouldn't there be an equal amount of 5 weekend days? But seriously, we are all equally made. We're no longer equal when we judge others wrongly...

    Equal

    No human being is better than the other. We are all equal, no matter where we come from, how we look, what we believe in and what we practice. If everyone put their differences aside, the world would be a better place.

    Equality is a precious currency,

    traded with rewards. So many situations when people dismiss or bow down to each other. Is true friendship seeing eye-to-eye, as equals? Is that also how simple it is to really respect another?
