Listen To The Children, They Have Something To Say

Our male dominated Congress and President want to hold tight to their phallic symbols like Assault weapons.  The Children are raising their voices because those people in Congress and the President do not understand common sense.  Congress and other like minded troglodytes share their thoughts with us.  They go like this…”Guns don’t Kill People, People Kill People”.  Let’s break this down further.  It’s people with Guns that kill people.  To act as though the gun is incapable of such devastation just makes sense.  That is what is described as semantics.  Then they all run around saying ‘you’ll only get my guns from my dead body’.  Nice visual crazies.

The Children are tired of dying at the hands of crazed individuals.  They are tired of the lip service paid by our Congress and President who take millions and millions of dollars to do the bidding of the gun lobbys.  This isn’t new in America where children stand up for other people in the face of injustice.  The Freedom Riders did that in the South in the 60’s because it was time do the right thing even if others are hanging on to antiquated ideals that are harmful to America.

In Florida, they decided not to take up any gun control legislation but found their focus in Porn.  Apparently in Florida, porn is a health risk.  Really because I think the 17 murder students and teachers would whole hardily disagree  and say Gun’s are the health risk!

In a Texas school district, School Children who opt to protest will be disciplined.

“A school is a place to learn and grow educationally, emotionally and morally,” Rhodes wrote. “A disruption of the school will not be tolerated.”

I’m pretty sure protesting the murder of school children nationwide is educationally, emotionally and morally important.  I’m assuming those in the administration are mostly male, gun owning, morally bankrupt people.

The children will be heard.  Some of these children will be running for office in the next several years.  Those gun lobby loving corrupt anti-American and anti-family values will have to face the fact that their jobs are definitely on the line.

My question for all these people who think this is a second amendment issue is this…”Why do you need an AR-15 or AK-47 assault rifle?  If it’s for protection I would suggest several classes of gun safety and target shooting because if it takes more than one or two bullets to protect yourself you really suck at it and shouldn’t own a weapon of any kind.

PRIDE

Pride is even more important this year than any other year.  It is important because the leaders of the USA are anti-LGBTQ.  President Donald J. Trump would do anything the Freedom Caucus wanted because he lacks conviction on any matter and is easily manipulated because he is weak.  He is weak because he is led by his own insecurities.  Vice-President Mike Pence would have us living in 1950’s America.  Where McCarthyism ran wild and women had very little respect from men.  He in his own words says he refuses to be in a room with other women whom are not his wife.  Apparently he doesn’t trust his manly urges to cheat or assault women.  Thus telling the world…he too is a weak man.

These men are afraid that associating themselves with the LGBTQ community will make them seem less manly.  So how do they handle it?  Well they ignore our right to exist and fight to destroy all the protections that we as the LGBTQ community need from people like…well like them.

This year PRIDE is so much more to our community.  We will not go back.  We are proud of the people we’ve become.  No more closets, abuse, verbal assaults, physical assaults or having our rights removed because the fact is we are Americans too.

Remember Martin Niemöller Words

Martin Niemoller gave us a poem that has been modernized and used a lot since the rise of Reality TV Star turned POTUS Donald Trump.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

This is important because it was true for him and many others during Nazi rule.  America is a far divide from the Fascist state of WWII Nazis, however, it could easily be guided there by the white supremacists advising the President right now.  Steven Bannon and Steve Miller are by their own admissions pro-white and anti-anything not white.  They’ve spoken and written about their predilections so this isn’t something one can just deny.  Although, there are those who believe the Holocaust was just made up.  These people are also believe the Bible is the word of God.  They deny any and all empirical proof and data to the contrary to their belief system.

That brings me to Caitlyn Jenner.  She is the self appointed voice of the Transgender community.  Ms. Jenner supported Mr. Trump during his election.  Touting his attributes of fiscal conservancy.  This week Mr. Trump along with white power man, Jeff Sessions, AG of USA, turned the tied of equality in America with the reversal of Transgender rights.  She offered this little gem for all of the Transgendered children in our country affected by this new wave of hate.

“I have a message for the trans kids of America. You are winning. I know it doesn’t feel that way today or every day, but you _ are _ winning. You are going to keep on winning so much you’re going to get sick of winning. Very soon, we’ll win full freedom nationwide, and it’s going to happen with bipartisan support.”

They are winning with no help from you Ms. Jenner.  You’ve faced very little struggle with your Transition.  People who have faced the odds like Jazz Jennings and faced the mean spirited, backwards minded, pretending-to-be-Christian people.  She has fought many difficult battles and continues to fight for Transgendered Youth in not only our country but the world.

Now that there is a potential of being affected by Mr. Trump and his Cabinet’s Transphobia and Misogyny you have something inspirational to say.  I wish you luck Ms. Jenner on your journey but beware of Mr. Niemoller’s words…they are coming back again.  HATE can’t be disguised.
