Free Your Mind

I'm a Gleek.  It's true. I'm not afraid to say it.  There are so very few programs that celebrate the diferences in our lives that make us who we are.  One of the biggest things I like about  it is that they celebrate all kinds of beauty. One example of this is Mercedes.  She's a bigger girl.  She KNOWs that she is fabulous, sexy and amazing.  The last episode I watched was one where the football coach (a woman who is not very feminine) finds out that students are using thoughts of her to help "cool off" after making out.  She is devastated. Who wouldn't be?  I felt it.  I saw the pain flash across her face and my heart shattered.  I won't lie I felt like I was her.  I am aware that I am not most peoples Ideal. I have never thought I was beautiful, sexy or amazing.   I am very blessed to have a husband who does not look at the stereotypical beauty and swoon.  He finds everything about me beautiful.  Every last scar, every last stretch mark (yup I'm that heavy).  He tells me every day how beautiful I am, and how much he loves my shape, and my body.

I really hope that we can stop seeing only this

as beautiful and start being realistic!

Start seeing the beauty everywhere! Look at these women 
How can ANYONE say they aren't beautiful. They are amazing! Beauty should not be confined to one stereotype. 

Stop calling People like Kim Kardashian and Scarlett Johansen  "heavy". They aren't.

Expressing my opnion

Because I can.  It's my blog, and I have a right to say what I want.  Even if it's politically incorrect. 

This frustrates me It's been going around facebook for awhile.  

First of all, do you know of a gay person that is forced to drink out of a separate fountain? or considered less than human because of the way they were born?  Or forced to go to school with only gay people? No.  It is not the same.  Stop trying to make it look like it is. 

Second, you HAVE equal rights. You are looking for rights that are above and beyond. Any Man has the right to marry any Woman.  is that not equal? 

I recently had a friend post on Facebook, again, that being gay isn't a choice, but being a hateful bigot is.  The term "bigot" is in and of itself hypocritical. 

— n
a person who is intolerant of any ideas other than his or herown, esp on religion, politics, or race

So, in calling me a bigot for standing against gay marriage, you are a bigot for not being tolerant of MY beliefs.  So stop.  The people screaming "TOLERANCE, PEACE and LET ME BE" are the ones who do not show those same qualities. I don't care what you do in your bedroom.  Just keep it there. Don't rub it in my face.  Don't try and cram your beliefs down my throat, and I won't cram mine down yours. Stop asking for extra "rights" and stop being a hypocrite. You have a domestic partnership, which provides the same privileges as marriage, without the title.  Marriage isn't a legal ceremony, it's a religious one.  If you can find a religion allowing it, Go for it! Just don't expect me to support it.  

I love everyone. I really do.  It's not about hating, or denying someone love.  I want everybody to feel the joy I feel with my husband. We are on a slippery slope and it is dangerous and frightening.  I want my children to be raised with Christian values, and to be kind to everyone.  But I will teach them to fight back if their ideals are attacked.  Do not attack me, or my beliefs and expect me to just sit down and allow you to trample MY religion and MY freedoms.
