Good morning, everyone!
I’m not typically a politically active person. For years I didn’t vote (insert any number of apathetic excuses here) and I rarely got involved with anything outside of my own little life.
This year, however, I’m feeling more and more like I need to lead by example, in the hopes of inspiring others to stand up, speak out, and be the change they want to see in the world. I’ve not only voted, I’ve been very vocal about the necessity of voting, despite all the roadblocks put in place by the Conservative government.
Now, if you’re not Canadian, that has little to no bearing on you,
so I will set that aside.
The reason I bring it up is to give you an example of the relatively recent changes in me, which leads to why I’m sharing the following article. Essentially, I’ve always been passionate, but as I grow older I am becoming more vocal about it.
If you’ve followed my blog for any length of time, you will have noticed an underlying theme: sexual suppression is the cause of a great many evils in this day and age, our ignorance of our own sexuality is appalling, and our aversion to speaking openly about this topic leads to a great many problems on both a personal and societal level. If there was one passion driving my continued presence here in the blogosphere, it is the hope that somehow I will touch people, inspire them to take a firmer grasp on their own sexuality, to explore and discover their selves, and armed with the confidence and comfort this knowledge can bring, to go out into the world spreading a philosophy of love wherever there is hate, of joy wherever there is sadness.
The exact extent to which our culture’s concept of sex is broken is too big a topic to go into in just one post, but here is a hint at the scope of it:
The following article says a great deal about the “civilized” western mindset.
It’s not a very long article. I hope you take a few minutes to read it.
I was left scratching my head afterwards.
Society seems so backwards sometimes.
In any case, I found the point this young lady is trying to make very eloquently stated in the actions her group is taking. It points out a lot of oddities in our culture, and gun obsession is only a part of it.
If nothing else, I hope it makes you laugh.
