So we had someone report on Homosexuality for Religion Class.
Anyway, the guy was rather funny, I’ll admit. Got me laughing at most of the jokes he cracked. He was Bi-leaning-Gay too, so that was his motivation for picking the topic, he said.
And I’ll even say that nothing bothered me about how he put forward the whole ‘homosexuality is a sin’ and ‘I’ll just be sorry to god when I get there’, because, lets face it, this is the typical Bullshit,weasel reasoning that you get when you try to make your discriminatory world view look LESS arrogant and close-minded than it is, but at the same time, not be willing to admit it is at all close-minded. I’m used to this. Nothing new to me, and it’s no skin off my back since I’m not the one deluding myself into thinking I should apologize for something I find there to be nothing wrong with.
I didn’t even care about when he said that.
What DID get to me though was his rather condescending outlook towards transvestites and transexuals. It’s just disgusting to see that he can go on saying he thinks less of them when the same could be applied to him, y’know? I mean, what’s with all the hatin’ on trannies? D’:> Shit, I now remember Alexis from American Virgin— but I’m going off track here.
Another thing that bothered me was that he kept re-affirming that homosexuality is a choice and what not, and all I could do was stare at him. Shit, man. It’s people like that who’re setting equal-rights activists- and other people who are more assertive than me to care for this stuff- back a billion years.
This class seriously makes me go gonzo. You hear him telling you all these things that offend your logical and moral judgment as people, and instead of seeing that as what it really is- a flaw of your religion- you try your best to either justify it, write it off, or just go on saying, ‘oh, if this is how it is, what I understand to be wrong isn’t’. What the hell, people. Id think you’d be a hell lot more intelligent than that.
See, this is why I think people should be confronted and made to talk about this shit, or at least make them THINK it through instead of just being cowardly doormats who cling onto beliefs that they can’t even completely affirm themselves.
Yeah, I’m really only ranting because I know for a fact that Jess and Jamie were also to a degree, bothered by the presentation Homosexuality— albeit maybe not for the same reasons at all.
Plus, Jess said she wasn’t going to blog about it so I decided I would. LOL
The humorous part of the class was actually when they showed a clip from Milk and Jess, Jamie and I mortifiedly did our best to look away and block out all the spoilerific audio.
After only 3-ish small plastic cups worth of gin+pineapple juice, I was tipsy. Brilliant, Jamie. Brilliant. And just when I thought I had embarrassed myself enough and I was finally homefree… I was waving goodbye to my newfound ‘friends’, happily wishing their safety and good evenings, when I turn around, and 2 inches away from me was a sign, high up as my collar bones, for Dimsum and Dumplings.
I walked into a sign.
In front of people you really don’t want to embarrass yourself before.
It may have been the booze talking, but it was liberating. Having actualized a fear everyone has harbored inside themselves gives one nothing left to be anxious abou-
Yeah, I’m bullshitting. It was embarrassing.
Yeah, I’m going to be a total man-bitch and have a repeat performance of Jamie’s lulz of the day. ;’D
