Some basic stuff about me: I'm from Texas, but my Dad is from El Salvador. Despite this I do not speak a lick of Spanish, though I can German fairly well. I also English well too, please note the lovely vocabulary that is my blog title. I attend a University and study Geology. Rocks are my passion, unlike fashion.
Warning: I do post ponies. Why? Because it's a good show. You should watch an episode, it's surprisingly good.
My blog is not typically saturated from them, but it's definitely one of the regular things I post.
There's a lot of Scenery, Geology, Animals, Pokemon and whatever I find humorous or interesting on this blog. Essentially, I re-blog anything I like, as this is my personal blog you see.
Have you guys seen this? Anyone who has learned ANYTHING about American History knows that this is just wrong, plain wrong. How on Earth is this guy still able to run?
Wasn’t the whole point of America being founded was to find religious freedom?
And besides, hasn’t anyone learned anything from religious leaders? Not to mention how many denominations of the bible there are, the interpretations, easily skewed and can be seen so many ways. Not one view can be seen as correct, or absolute. When it comes down to it, the Government just cannot be run on beliefs, rather on facts, and universal morals that the country as a whole can agree on.
It is the Government’s duty to insure equality, and to protect citizen’s rights to believe what they want to believe and not receive any form of discrimination.
I just recognized why the term “privilege, ” pisses me off so much. It’s usually in the form of a “you message,” not an “I message”… for you psych majors out there.
To the LGBTQ movement, “you messages” put people on the defensive. It’s attacking them. It also sounds like the blame is being laid on them, even if it’s a call to the system, it still sounds personal. “I messages” are messages that express your feelings and opt people to listen and they can still adress a fucked up system.
“Cis gender people have the privilege to go to the restroom whenever they want without being harassed.”
“I want to use the restroom without being harassed just like everyone else.”
Which statement sounds more approachable? Which one do you think will have a greater impact? Which one, do you think, will cause more people to listen?
