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.

“Are you lost,” he asked, voice amused, deep and as comfortable being in the shadow. Panting, the red silk of her gown moved against the curve of smooth breast, The same gown hugged her waist, slowed down behind her almost like a wedding train, but in the brightest red. Violet eyes stared up at him, trying to decide if he were a friend. The question was hard to answer. “I....” He leaned a little, his smile confident, engaged. Dark eyes seemed to swallow her whole as if she were a sugar cube melting in his champagne. “Well, what is it, my pretty cardinal?” Almost as if compelled, as if tell him the truth were her most sweetest desire, she admitted, “I came in with the offering girls because I’m looking for my brother. I think the king is holding him because he’s a journalist and an activist for democracy.” Both her hands covered her mouth, those violet eyes wide with shock. “You think the king keeps political prisoners,” he said, on ha…

“You’re right. There is definitely something there,” Hilde said. On the bridge of their little salvage craft, she touched the data display, the 3d image of the ice shelf they were exploring.
They were, technically, getting paid to disperse oceanographic sensors for the University of Tokyo. Doing a little salvage on the side was just a perk.
“What’cha think it is?” Duo asked, pulling his wet suit up over his shoulders. His hair was growing out again and was down past his shoulders if it wasn’t in a ponytail. Silver touched his temples, metallic and shimmery. Anti-aging technology kept him in peak condition, looking early twenties, at oldest. Anticipating his swim, the gills on the side of his throat opened, tingling pleasantly.
“Early plane, like fuck,” Hilde said. While she had always had a couple years on him, it didn’t show at all. Her hair was flame red curls now. One eye was completely artificial, thoug…

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.

You Rock!
