A Random Ramble Through My Mind

Let’s dig down and see what we find shall we?

Hmm must be something down here, ah yes me oft stated desire to be transformed by surgery and genetic engineering into a fully intersexed being. But I’ve explored that recently so onto other things such as the othering of we queers. If I achieved the body I want I would be considered a freak and not quite human by many. Then again many, especially the theocrats like Don Wildmon and Matt Barber among others, in general do not consider queers fully human. We certainly don’t seem to deserve equal protection under the law but we do semm to be good for the odd fund raising letter and scare mongering,

"The gravity of this situation cannot be overstated. Right out of the shoot, Obama has told the world that he is signing off, without exception, on every demand of the extremist homosexual and transsexual lobbies. The radical homosexual agenda and religious and free speech liberties cannot occupy the same space. It's a zero-sum game. When 1 - 2 percent of the population is granted special rights based on deviant sexual proclivities and changeable sexual behaviors, to the detriment of everyone else, that's called tyranny of the minority. People of faith and those of you with traditional values: hold on to your hats - it's going to be a bumpy four years," concluded Barber.

Of course this is all in the name of power, they need a out group they can paint as all powerful but who in realty is weak enough to push around. Queers fill that bill nicely because we are a small percentage of the population. This makes it easier to lie about us because many people don’t know any queers (or don’t know they know any). Then there is the fact that it has become unfashionable to be openly racist which was the default for a group to other in the past. So we are othered, called a greater threat then Al-Qaeda and blamed for hurricane Katrina.

To bring this full circle I want to other myself even more. Am I mad? No just tired of living a stunted life trying to fit into these scumbags perception of what I should be.
