Rant: Gay Marriage from the Being Feminist FB page


Good Morning!

I’m Max!
I’m not a content creator for this page.
I’m a writer, the parent of grown children, a novelist, a transgendered guy, a feminist, a loud mouthed trouble maker, and an anime fan - among other things.

I hope all the people who left over JD’s post find their way back and bring some friends.

I am avidly pro gay marriage. I don’t agree with JD’s reasoning, but I see where it’s coming from and I could almost agree with it.

Humans are complicated beings. Pretty much every behavior we have ever had has had good and and bad impacts on various individuals.

Groups of humans self regulate by generating culture and normalized behaviors. We self homogenize over time. Individual water molecules do their own thing in their range, but the tides are still pulled by the moon towards the shore. For humans, our moon is our overall will to do what is right and have the approval of our peers.

My desire is for us to move towards equality being the right thing, freedom of choice, respect of diversity, empowerment of individuals, and personally, I’m really excited about space exploration and extreme longevity, but the species is diverse and there will always be people who want other things.

Restoring to individuals the right to choose their own mate empowers us, pulls us all towards freedom and respect shining a brighter light on the rest of the world, pulling behavior away from coercive and diminishing compliance that narrows all of our choices.

We must define ourselves. To do so we need freedom of choice.

So even if I wasn’t a bi-transsexual man, I’d support gay marriage.

Reading some of the comment thread on JD’s post...

Folk! The way to disagree with someone is to  present your own argument, not call names or shun someone because you disagree with something they said. When you call names, you diminish two people... the one you’ve just reduced from all they are to a few nasty words, and yourself because you couldn’t find a constructive way to present your own ideas.

Christmas Blog Hop

Joyous Holidays! Merry Christmas!


How was your Thanksgiving? I hope you had a great time! For your reading pleasure, I offer you this scene from my current novel. Syn is going to have a Christmas like none other! The prize for this blog hop... is that if you comment on this post, you'll be entered into a drawing for the 5th, which is when Christmas Carnival is going to release, and that is the prize. It's going to be a very hot and wicked book... Christmas on a colony where sex is the center of everything. It's a kinky, BDSM book, so if that's not your thing, you'll be welcome to pick a story from my back list!

You Rock!

Saturday's Edit!

This post is going to get edited multiple times over the next few days :) I've got story and art to add in. I've never been one to wait till Christmas or want a surprise, but maybe I've been wrong, so I'm exploring this idea of timely gifts :)

Confessions and a Cassock

Confessions and a Cassock  by Sebastian Blade
copyright 2010  All Rights Reserved He had red hair, fine golden copper, dark green eyes. He'd been a runner in college, strong and fast.  Black suited him. His slacks lay perfectly over a firm ass, the little white at his throat that promised he was a decent and upstanding man, a servant of God. And he was. Monday through Friday he taught at Saint Sarah's Academy. Sundays he worked in the parish, counseling and genuinely caring for people. He'd watched children, built fences, milked cows, changed tires, and read letters to people. God called him to be a servant of men, and he was.  There were some thoughts to wrestle with though. When he'd been a younger man, back in his college days, he known an uninhibited brunet who had made him wonder what path he wanted for his life.  It was Saturday. The questions always came back.  The brunet had become a lawyer. The brunet's name was August Richards.  Father Anderson knew that he shouldn…
