Donald Trump & Equality

When it comes to moving equality forward Donald J. Trump is the worst candidate possible on the face of the earth. He has done said he would repeal same-sex marriage his first in in the Oval Office as well as ACA also known as ObamaCare. If anyone has a fighting chance at being in office and making a real change it would be Hilary Clinton. I did have thoughts on Bernie Sanders, but with his ailing age, and chronic health issues, and this stress the office puts on you I don’t believe he would survive his first term of office and his predecessor would have to take over and that could be a tabernacle of a scene so call it one. So my overall opinion for a condidate would definitely have to be the Democratic Hilary Clinton!

Homophobia 

Homophobia is still one phobia that is vastly looked upon. Homophobics are still trying to state the homosexuality is still a choice of the human race. I can attest from my point of being a homosexual that it is not a choice.  Then there is another thing that gets on my nerves. People who say they don’t care that you are gay, bi, trans, etc. But yet they don’t approve of same-sex marriage. They tell me they have no homophobic characterics in their body, but yet I’m my opinion they do when they object to samesex marriage.  I can say that we have come a long way in getting equal rights and treatments in our country and other countries worldwide. The fight isn’t over yet. In fact it has just begun. We still have a long way to go to make sure everyone has the same equal rights as the heterosexuals (opposite sex relationships) do.  There has been one movie/documentary that I have enjoyed since its release and shared and talked about on many occasions …

Family Equality Discrimination

It is a complete shame that many families discriminate against their family members for being who they are, gay. It shouldn’t matter who you love. Love is Love. I know that I do have to deal with this form of discrimination with my family and distant family members. The only ones in my family that I know of that supports equality is my mother, brother Lawrence, sister-in-law Tonya. My other brothers and distant family members don’t approve of equality. They don’t believe that same-sex couples deserve the right to marry and they won’t acknowledge it. My eldest niece that I have nothing to do with, is gay. Her parents don’t approve of her being gay and believe that it is a lifestyle choice of being gay. They have had enough nerve to blame me for making her gay. Well I can say that I had nothing to do with that. You’re either gay or your not, its not a choice. It’s hardwired into you. It shouldn’t matter who it is that you love. As long …

Equality

With the recent #SCOTUS ruling, Marriage Equality is now the law of the land across the United States. United States of America has made tremendous history that will go down in the history books. Their are still bigots over the #MarriageEquality. With me being a part of the LGBT community I can not understand why people would want to discriminate against the LGBT community. We are all created equal. We were created by the holy spirit to be who we want to be. The bible says that we should not judge nor discriminate against others, but the hypocritical religious freaks apparently don’t want to support that part of the bible but they are so-called faithful believers of our heavenly father. If they were such faithful believers, they wouldn’t be discriminating against anyone. Sexual Orientation shouldn’t be something to be ashamed of. This is the 21st Century. God created us to be who we are. If god didn’t want “gays” he wouldn’t have created them. People believe that being gay is a “Life Choice”, in which …

Supreme Court Marriage Equality Ruling

06/26/2015 Update: The United States Supreme Court in Washington, DC has declared Marriage Equality across the nation. Today is a day to go down in the history books. States will now have to recognize same-sex marriages that were performed anywhere in the United States and will have to issue the licenses as well. Todays vote was a 5-4 vote in the Obergefell v. Hodges. Companies across the Nation are rejoicing the the decision as well, including American Air, Target, etc., & Tim Cook. To View the #SCOTUS Ruling you can see it here. Original:   The US Supreme Court has added a non-argument day to their calendar for Thursday June 18, 2015 at 10:00am. This event was added to deliver the opinions on matters that have been argued in the Court. This in my opinion could be the delivery of the Marriage Equality across the states. On April 28, 2015 the court heard the oral arguments in the cases of Obergefell v. Hodges 14-556-Question-1 & Obergefell v. Hodges 14-556-Question-2. So come this day we will know …

Equality

  Well it is June 2015, and a ruling is expected from the Supreme Court Justices on the matter of Marriage Equality across the border. They will decide if all states should allow same-sex marriages and recognize them or not. I can say that I will be watching and waiting for the ruling on this matter as it is an important matter that needs to be taken and since no one wants to take action on it, the U.S. Supreme court should as some states refuse to even recognize the marriage from another state as it is banned in their state. I believe that everyone should have the same equal rights and opportunities. This country is supposed to be a free and welcoming country and so far it isn’t showing it. With this ruling it will finally allow same-sex marriage in all 50 states. It is already legal in 36 states and the District of Columbia. The ruling is expected to come at the end of the month. So I will be watching and waiting …

Marriage Equality

I have to say that there is a lot of talk going around worldwide, that everyone don’t deserve to have the same rights as others. This post is specifically related to the LGBTQ community. As a member of this community, I believe that everyone no matter their race, religion, net worth, sexual orientation, or anything, they should be entitled to the same benefits to the same benefits as everyone else has. This is the 21st Century and people need to come to realize that we’re not back in the Stone Age. If a heterosexual has one right then an LGBTQ person should have that same right. These aren’t privileges. These are rights. In my personal opinion, the most oppressive people that are against these fundamental rights are the conservative right wing republicans. Yes, I am a devote Democrat, but there are things that I do not believe in that the democrats have done and accomplished. Yes, I know I will probably get some backlash from the public as well as my family members (distant) about my …
