    I Am Not Gay-But If I Were, What's It To Ya?!

    We've all heard the rhetoric. The bottom line is, it's none of your damned business if I am or not. Gay people are NOT out to turn the world GAY, they just want to live in harmony with everyone else. How would YOU like it, if the MAJORITY of people WERE gay, and we had laws in...

    Prison

    I worked in a prison for a bit and it was the most horrible experience! I saw people, guards, and staff members laughing at inmates, beating inmates and treating others like trash, simply because they could.  I saw some horrific things and cannot understand how any...

    My Heart Breaks For Trayvon Martin And His Family

    I know others in this group have recently written about this story. It is outrageous that nothing has been done to the man who shot Trayvon Martin. He was unarmed walking in a gated community and because the neighborhood watchman, George Zimmerman, felt he was acting suspicious...

    Every closet racists tries to justify their

    narrow-minded views by calming that they only "speak the truth." You do not, you only parrot your own ignorant assumptions and your warped beliefs. How to know if you are racist? Whenever you clump one group of people into one category based on race, culture, religion, etc...

    (from Wonkette.com) It has not been a banner

    year for our armed public servants from the City of New York. When we last left them, they were executing a two-pronged strategy to protest Mayor Bill de Blasio’s alleged anti-cop rhetoric, first hijacking the funeral of two murdered cops, then refusing to do their jobs. What...

    Prejudice + Power = Injustice

    Prejudice and Power are a very scary mixture. When they are mixed the result is invariable injustice. My partner and I are very much in love. We make each other very happy. We support and care for each other. We got together when I reached out to help a depressed person like...

    Which Is Why:

    I speak to others with sensitivity, and am careful in the words I choose. There may be personal life choices that I do not agree with or find healthy, but I will never call anyone a curse word or imply that their lives do not have value as all living beings have value and should...

    I hate bigotry so much

    that a difference in opinion about women's or lgbt rights or something that sounds racist to me could end a friend ship. Sometimes I wonder if I'm doing the right thing or if by not tolerating their opinion, I'm the one who's the real bigot.

    Why?

    Injustice is truly awful.

    One part of our history is the fact that we repealed the death sentence. How many innocents were killed by the state??? And injustice is everywhere!!!!
