Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.

<rant>

I have kept pretty quiet on this journal about what I think of the US politics scene right now because I have people who read me (and who I consider friends) on both sides of the fence. Apart from a meme or two, maybe. Until now.

SEXUALITY IS NOT A CHOICE OR A LIFESTYLE!
Linked writer says it better than I ever could.
Thanks to rm for the link.

Cue the flame wars, but I am entitled to my opinion as much as you are. This is not opinion, though. It is a biological fact. We cannot CHOOSE our sexuality. We can suppress it and become mentally ill or we can live as $deity-or-nature intended - as our true sexuality.

Yes, I am heterosexual. I know that many of you are not. I feel so worried for those of you in the US that are not vanilla-hetero in case the GOP ticket wins and hope, for your sake, that Obama / the Democrats win(s).

There you go - I have said my piece.

I hope like hell he wins, too. I'm very scared of McCain/Palin...mostly because of her! People don't seem to get it. I'm very scared. I'll be voting for Obama, and trying to convince everyone I know to do the same....

Of course. What is it they said in 'Real Genius'? Ah, yes. It's a "moral imperative"!

I will admit that, as an American, I am quite often ashamed of my government. Right now is no exception. Sarah Palin scares the hell out of me. Religion and politics do not mix.

I will also be one of the first to say that I love my gay and bi friends... unconditionally.

Exactly. I thought there was supposed to be separation of church and state in the US!

Actually the Constitution doesn't say anything about separation of church & state. It just prohibits the Government from establishing a national religion.

Right there with you.

I might not be American, but Sarah Palin scares the bejesus out of me :o(

And I might have decided to spend my life with a man, but as an openly bisexual woman, I completely agree with your comments about sexuality.

My vote is going for Obama for so many reasons. McCain and Palin are just frightening. While I respect McCain as a veteran, he has NO business trying for president... and Palin? YIKES!

I just hope that we have the numbers to back Obama up in November. I am hopeful.

Obama HAS to win!

Anyone who thinks sexuality is a choice needs to consider just one simple question: would you voluntarily subject yourself to hate and bigotry when you could just follow your natural instincts and be heterosexual? If the answer is no, then obviously sexuality isn't a choice and the question is moot.

I don't think the Republicans are dumb enough to try to legislate sexuality. And wasn't the military's "don't ask/don't tell" policy started under a Democratic President? Neither party has a monopoly on bigotry. It's sad. Ignorance is always sad.

That's really the best way to describe it. *sigh*
