Chuck Norris a Manly man with a Karate black belt, who kicked more ass than i can ever count in his movies, a woman's heart-throb for some time, is a Conservative Republican, he supports Romney on this year's Elections, So There is 0% chance he'd ever approve of something as Gay as Spirits Day.
Er, I think "Spirit Day" should commemorate a time when Bullying should be stopped toward ANYONE and not just one minor community.
Spirit Day should'nt be geared toward homo's only, cuz I find it contradictive when they spit at us for believing in traditional concepts, and they flagerate us by calling us 'Homophobic' and 'Intolerant' when it has absolutely NOTHING to do with the ideal.
Traditional Marriage doesn't have anything to do with Religion or Morals for that cause, but simply for social benefits that help to keep our community strong and in peaceful order & having a group of people charging in & saying "Hey, let's change this and how's about changing that to keep only us happy & all of you pissed off at us in a way that you'll retort to aggressive behavior cuz we provoked your ass. You all happy with that?" is certainly not a way to win the hearts of a kajillion people.
Showing respect for our sects, beliefs & cultural traditions is tolerance, not vacating our ethics just to suit the needs of a few. That would be intolerance, wouldn't it?
So technically, "Spirit Day" should celebrate awareness for Bullying in schools, neighboring suburbs, alleyways, starbucks plaza's & the like. Makes better sense that just only one primary group, which is actually selfishness & wanting something only for themselves at the expense of others.
totally agree with you dude, that's why i Chose Chuck Norris cause well, no-one would think even at the deepest regions of their minds to pick on Chuck Norris, without Chuck Norris finding out and round-housing their ass before it could even happen, anyways, I totally respect gay\lesbian/Bisexual Communities, cause after-all I'm no God to judge someone, but of course I know a "few" who totally takes they're pride to the wrong level so yeah you get pissed sometimes...
Although to lay it as it is; I may disagree about the liaisons of certain communities, like atheist groups & political parties, mixed marriage & some religious sects, but that doesn't mean that I'm against the people for poo-poo sakes. Your an atheist too, but your a different kind of atheist; your extremely kind & generous & don't bicker or get involved with something you disagree about & you respect other cultures/ethicist as much as I do, and that right there is a sign of a real man to me. (unlike other ones out there which made me judgmental to the very core. ) Hell, I don't feel too comfortable about Muslim's either, but one of my dearest friends is Islam & he's a fucking darling to talk with & I was labeled as his 1st ever friend on the net & we did a lot with each other. Just goes to show that beliefs don't matter shit, Sammy & Simon style.
Y'see folks, it's like what Jesus once said; "Look, oh ye of little faithlessness audience, can't we all just shut our mouths, stick to our guns & get along like your all supposed to. It's not like I just died on the bloody cross & made some random schmoe so dog-goned special all of a sudden."
Well, maybe not like that, but still, we can learn from others who ask for humbleness. Like THIS Epic guy right here---> [link]
My dada always told to set an example for others to show & I stuck with it all the way. Too bad he had to end up not following what he preached & died a lonely death in his cell block.
Pink pledge shirt? Whut about blue? Or red? or green?
Well, my point is just my opinion (but there is also fact to it) but I'm not really afraid of homosexuality, I just don't approve of it. That it all.
That, and I support the 2nd Amendment, which I hope can also 'certainly not a way to win the hearts' of a few like me on here. Unless if their hostile which may ALSO prove my point as well.
But don't get me wrong, bub. One of my closest friends here is also gay & he's fine to chat with cuz his *ahem* attitude is nice & it's a person's behavior that defines them in a community, as human history has proven.
There, I'm done. Now I will go watch some "HalloweeN" fan films on YouTube.
Ok mate, sounds like you need to go to a tolerance museum, or just chill out in San Francisco for a couple of days. I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume you've come across the more butt-hurt of the LGBT community. Understand this little truth in life: there are people who bring shame to every community because they take the community's ideals to the extreme. Where their hearts are in the right place, they can be a little naive about it. I am both shocked and greatly apologetic for your friend if he were to come across these posts, as they are incredibly hurtful. Spirit day, if you take the time to read the little exert, was inspired by the 2010 suicides of teens of alternative sexualities and gender identities that took their lives due to bullying. While I am glad that you are in the nature of inclusion, please understand and respect where the inspiration is coming from. I do like your idea though; if you plan on celebrating today, celebrate by standing up against bullying in all of it's forms. As a religious bisexual currently dating someone of my own gender, I can tell you I fully understand your disapproval, and the pain of this community. I can't ask you to understand, because I would never wish this on anyone. I do ask though, that you offer all of your brothers and sisters your patience and your tolerance. There is by far too much hate in this world, and far too little knowledge that a few words can slice just as effectively as any knife.
Also, real men wear pink, and I completely agree with you that homophobia is the dumbest damn word to describe it. Met someone with actual homophobia once though. Her story was incredibly fascinating.
Tolerance isn't about changing our foundations to suit concepts that blatantly go against our established laws and morals, rather, it's about equal treatment along with a commitment to try to help spread awareness and understanding in the hopes of helping those (who feel that we're "bigots" and what not) for the better. Tolerance is about "hating the sin and not the sinner," so that we do not judge others and instead simply try to help them. Of course, people have free will, and if they choose not to receive any help, then we just don't bother them.
I'll agree on that behalf.
Basically, it's just the heathen brands that I'm concerned about & it goes all on everyone, whether it be of any personal belief or culture. Hell, I disapprove of Atheism, but y'know, the dude who made this dev is great friend of mine & we respect each other to the absolute degree. I don't bother him with his way O' life & he don't bother with mesa way O' life.
And I also see where thou art coming from. I think what I meant was is the majority of certain groups, for instance the LGBT group; some members are hokey while some just want to mellow out & enjoy the rest of the day which I'm fine with. (though why do most of the LGBT support people who are NAMBLA guys is beyond me, but I ain't going that far.)
Statistically to me, Homophobia is as non-existent as Racism; we are all the Human race & some folks just act all big about it & throw it out just for randomness sakes because they don't get what they want in life & throw a fit about it. I sure wouldn't. Just because someone doesn't share their viewpoints doesn't mean they are against people, but as an Asperger dude, I'm a little more into the social fact of thing, rather than a just opinion by a said few, which is lame & not truthful at all.
Utah also ranks as the nations leading cause in teen suicide, cuz they feel too much pressure of what da' Mormon church puts on 'em & it's kinda stressful enough for them cuz I was once a member myself, all pompous & haughty n' stuff. But then, anyone committing suicide is always more harsh on the parents than anyone else on their side.
Well anyways, I hope that I didn't bore you too much with my forensics, cuz I sure was.
