I am so sorry to have been quiet for a while. I go through depressions now and again - thankfully not those gut wrenching-can't get out of bed depressions, just the blues. But, I find that I have to struggle to keep a good attitude during such times and I just about wore myself out doing that. Going further, though.... I really didn't have much to say.
Today I was watching a very interesting documentary on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He was a bit before my time, and what an interesting person! I couldn't help but repeatedly hear mirrors of the struggles as we LGTB.
So, in doing a bit of surfing, I see this trash. http://boyboxrebellion.blogspot.com/2013/01/fischer-were-now-new-rosa-parks-and.html Who is this guy? I can't believe anyone takes him seriously, but, they do.
I do tire of the way some find justification in fabrications. I'm not a stickler for facts vs. opinion, but I do expect opinion to have some sort of factual support.
And that, I guess, brings me back to Mr. Fisher and my earlier viewing of MLK, Jr. documentary.....
I found the speeches here: http://www.edchange.org/multicultural/speeches/mlk_birth.html
There is something in the soul that cries out for freedom. There is
something deep down within the very soul of man that reaches out for
Canaan. Men cannot be satisfied with Egypt. They tried to adjust to it
for awhile. Many men have vested interests in Egypt, and they are slow
to leave. Egypt makes it profitable to them; some people profit by
Egypt. The vast majority, the masses of people never profit by Egypt,
and they are never content with it. And eventually they rise up and
begin to cry out for Canaan’s land.
MLK's background conversations all spoke about the necessity of the populace to become tired of allowing the repeated denial of equality. He spoke often about the town where the demonstration was orchestrated was not the audience, just the back drop. The true audience is the nation and world at large. I must admit, I am guilty of being somewhat content with life in Egypt, as MLK talks about above, in that I am living quite closeted; in slavery to the injustice of current America - so, admitting that, I can also see that Mr. Fischer seems quite content that we all stay in Egypt. He isn't satisfied in freedom. He feels the need to not only subjugate but to justify subjugating people.
The good news, much like America today in regard to Civil Rights of African Americans, Negros, Blacks.... I get lost in the names over the decades so how about we call them PEOPLE!, so too is America growing tired of these Fischer types. Where once Ellen DeGeneres lost her show for coming out, and where Will and Grace came and went - now Modern Family shows that people are people are people, so too are the very PEOPLE this man feels justified in subjugating. It reportedly took 40 years to reach Canaan from Egypt, so who knows how long this journey will take. What I do know, this goof will fall off his flat earth sometime - hopefully - soon.
