|Jun. 26th, 2011 @ 09:41 am I'm back and you want me to comment on what happen this weekend ok...|
|As you know, the New York Congress passed the Same-Sex Marrage law Friday. People around the country have said in the GBLT community this is a victory, while many Christan groups says this is as far as "arnarcy" (yes, Super Bowl Champion David Tyree said that). My as I recall in one of my pervious posts, here's where I have stood and I'm going to stand:|
"I'm not supporting this movement for same-sex marradge but I am not going against it."
Personally I don't care who marries who in New York. Doesn't bother me, doesn't make any sense to really care. Bi or not I have drawn my line of support on this to 'indifferent' many times, I'm standing by that line. Yes I went to the pride parade but not to support the adgenda: I went to support people. I'm not here to go out as far as to say gay marradge, I'm here to say that these people are getting attacked because they're gay and it's wrong for that.
As for the way things go from here, no big deal. Not something that matters to me. So long as people don't drag me into it (which many times over seems to be the norm with this issue) do whatever you want.
Let's be honest though, on one day a year I will likely be behind the idea more than anything of being not-straight. I however have to draw two lines. One, I'm not for or against marring a guy. Doesn't bother me. The second and more important issue is the matter of 'pride.'
Here's how I see it: Pride means you did something or made a choice to have that happen. I chose to be an American, I chose to be a gamer, I chose what blogs I use. To me pride about being gay is just a concept I can't think would matter. If people were 'born this way' then what does it matter to people who are straight? Do I see any straight pride parades? Don't think so. Harsh yes, but if you want equal rights then you have to look at things on an equal playing field.
To me the GBLT concept of 'pride' is an out-right joke. I've said it before and I'll say it again: I'm not 'proud' that I was born to like wearing dresses, it's just something I do. I'm not 'proud' that I'm White, it's just something I am. I'm not 'proud' to be Chatholic, it's just what I believe.
I will support people, I will not support pride. I will not be donating to Pride Houston only because that they use pride more than power, they use 'we're out because we have to show you we are' not because 'we're out because people are still getting hurt by this.'
If you want to help, and want to do something, be my guest. If not, well ok whatever. It's PEOPLE I respect, it's PEOPLE who taught me I wasn't straight, it's PEOPLE who made my frilly dress and pink panties.
I will support people far sooner on any level, than I will the Same-sex movement, and a hell of a lot sooner than I would pride on any level.
