What Went Wrong In The 1st Place


You're straight or gay if you look at your hands a certain way or have an index finger that is freakishly long, or short I do forget, as it's not really the point. The question of what separates gay and straight, is what is wrong in the first place. I might mention that I am not gay or straight, and NOT something in-between but a different being, bisexual. Biphobia and lack of confirmation on our existence is still evident today in even the most progressive Lesbian, Gay and Transgender casted tv shows who use the B as a highway. Bisexuality is how how you are before you're gay, or if you "decide" for some CRAZY reason that you're not Really gay but straight? You will be bisexual for awhile!

I've decided to stay rooted on this spot of so called indecision. When I asked myself, do I want to be gay or straight what is it? I couldn't decide and it bothered me on the insides. And then, I got it: Every time I ask that question I will not be able to answer it. I cannot like one or the other. I cannot fall in love with one or the other. Will I meet that person for forever, I hope so! But I cannot choose how it will go, and it'll always feel very wrong to try. I'm 100% proudly bi. To clarify, it feels wrong in that way it must feel if you're straight and think about being gay. Eww. A gay who shudders at "that", a lesbian who'd rather not handle certain equipments. Total yuck factor, for me it would be wrong to choose, something I am not and a lie no one should be forced to live.

I do believe there are progressions in humanity and that enlightenment was not just one period of historical time. Intolerance however has always equaled invisibility and a fight to be seen. All canon must be re-created, facts and fables. In my opinion our country of America is the best machine for this, constantly re-drawing ley lines of legend, myth and memory to produce popularizing therefore polarized mass life forms: Barak Obama, American Idol, George Bush, iTunes. And inside the fight must continue, how many people like the gays according to "popular stats" ? See our machine keeps track of that, correlating Brokeback Mountain jokes with an increase in scores, and sad slight upticks in Bill O'Reilly and downticks in Al Gore. We all have to keep fighting at the same time, Each Other Them Us, not a destructive force but with a firm, challenging cunning that is ready to refresh memories. Like perhaps never before, we must know that there are people right behind, never spoken and still not ready to emerge.

Lila Rose, yet another UCLA Freepk

Not only are legacies left and slaves sold in this way to build churches, but the right is openly defended by the church. In 1836 the great Methodist Church in America, holding through ministers. and elders, and members, in their own church 250,000 slaves, said in their general conference in Cincinnati that they had no right, no wish, no intention to interfere with the relation of master and slave as it existed in the slave states of the American union. - Frederick Douglas speaking on Slavery and Religion, 1846

FROM FRC.ORG - Racism Alive and Well at Planned Parenthood
A shocking set of recordings was released this week that could prove disastrous for Planned Parenthood's ties with the African-American community. Lila Rose, a pro-life student and reporter at UCLA, launched an undercover investigation aimed at exposing the racism of the nation's largest abortion merchant. With the help of an actor, she contacted Planned Parenthood clinics in seven states, inquiring if they would be willing to accept a donation earmarked for the abortion of black babies. The results were jaw-dropping.

Rose was appalled to discover that every last clinic agreed. Not one employee objected or questioned the request, even when the actor insisted that the purpose was to "lower the number of black people" in America. When the caller phoned an Ohio branch, he was told that Planned Parenthood "will accept the money for whatever reason." Read the outrageous transcript from the Idaho clinic, which is also available with Rose's other recordings in a montage at

Yes, Margaret Sanger was a racist. Doesn't mean that abortion is wrong to me because she advocated for it. Would be like calling Christian's racist, since they perpetuated and OVERTLY approved of slavery in this country. History does not forgive, but we can. Especially when we try and fight for what's right in this world...having the right to choose to have a child is something right in this world, especially with the prevalence of rape and sexual assault in this country!

Which is why as a Bruin, an African American, and a Woman, I DENOUNCE Lila Rose. Ms. Rose represents a continuation in a long line of lying, cheating conservative wackos from UCLA. Following in the steps of the
RACIST, LYING Andrew Jones and THEIVING Sheldon Ross, Lila should feel quite welcome to the club! Face the music, for illegally taping others without their consent. Face the music for creative editing, entrapment and misleading volunteers who are just there to help! Funny how O'Reilly's even supporting illegal actions such as this these days...how far are we away from breaking and entering? Or is that allowed now too?

What is to be thought of a nation boasting of its liberty, boasting of its humanity, boasting of its Christianity, boasting of its love of justice and purity, and yet having within its own borders three millions of persons denied by law the right of marriage?—what must be the condition of that people? - Frederick Douglas speaking on Slavery and Religion, 1846
