When I went to Google search engine this morning I noticed the following statement:
Proud supporters of the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia
Trending: Get with the Nation, New York!
It leads to a beautiful song I have nothing against. What’s wrong is the difference from what the song says and what is actually happening.
Fighting for equity, dignity and social justice
Genders are just different, physiologically, mentally, biologically, etc. There will be differences. I agree there can’t be a different treatment by law, for example, due to gender.
As defined, dignity is more of a moral thing than something to be imposed.
This I agree with.
Legalize same sex marriage
As described in all the old religious documents and books. Same-sex marriages have been added to the definition in recent years. Personally I don’t agree with this as a catholic but I don’t judge. My issue is having it forced unto everyone.
Fighting for love and understanding
Nothing wrong with this, but again, this is not something you can force into people and/or their beliefs and moral. That’s where I don’t agree with it.
Empower lesbian, BI, trans and queer women
Empower them to do what? Empowerment comes from within. A different thing is being judged by society, religion and moral.
Depending on your beliefs, this would go along with most religious teachings where the law of God is reflected on the law of men. I do agree that treatment does more than putting someone in jail or other extremes.
Gays, lesbian, trans and BI are humans too
Yes they are, but again beliefs and concept of moral shouldn’t be changed by force. Being tolerant is different than being forced to do something.
End transphobic murders and youth homelesness
No murder is right, no discussion about that. I assume the homelessness is due to their “gender identity”. I agree none should occur.
This can’t be forced either, this is driven by everyone’s beliefs and concept of moral.
Depending on how you look at the “other genders” mentioned and your beliefs a family has only this definition. There are some exceptions where grandparents or other close family become a family for a child. Also we have the case of adoptions.
Society, beliefs and moral determine what a family is. Legally I understand the reasons, besides that, it can’t be forced.
I assume it’s referring to rights like marriage (by law). This again goes back to the definitions of family and marriage already mentioned. Besides those, I agree. It becomes a belief/moral thing afterwards.
Nothing against that, just without infringing on other’s rights on the process.
Not different from normal bullying, shouldn’t be there. It comes back to society, beliefs and moral.
It all comes down to the main term
And what they want to change it to:
Nice song and all, but the infringement of everyone else rights is not how this is done. Forcing our kids to have other “genders” on their bathroom is not the way either. It’s not discrimination to separate physiologically in restroom, just a matter of room equipment, privacy and security.
I’ve had friends, peers, etc. with different sexual inclinations and we can coexist. It’s a matter of respect. I’m sorry, but I can’t let my rights get trampled just because someone wants to force something against my beliefs, moral and my own rights.
