Ann Widdecombe’s rant at the European parliament was just about par for the course for someone so openly patronising and who firmly believes that science has the cure for homosexuality. I am all for vivid analogies, strong language, and somewhat controversial views. God knows my posts do tend to ramble on with poetic soliloquies and […]
Film Review: “Disobedience” – Hashem Help Me!
Film title: Disobedience (2017) Director: Sebastián Lelio Disobedience is a compelling and beautiful film relating the transgression of two women in a more than conservative society run by men and religion. Nothing new you might say, but that is what makes the film even better. It is a drama that anyone can relate to […]
A Loving Father’s Thoughts On LGBT Rights, Feminism, And Intersectionality (2): The Feminists
All these feminists giving blowjobs like it’s missionary work – Jessa Crispin (Why I’m Not a Feminist: A Feminist Manfesto) I‘ve never given much thought to the feminist movement in general, and feminists in particular, but having delved a little deeper into the matter, I now realize that I was right not to. […]
A Loving Father’s Thoughts On LGBT Rights, Feminism, And Intersectionality (1): The LGBT’ers
Part 1 – LGBT And All That The modern Feminist Movement and the Gay Rights Movement share a common enemy – hegemonic patriarchy – Shawn Donnelly The fact that I thought that LGBT was a rock band, similar to AC/DC, just shows you how loving and innocent I was, thinking that all these […]
God And Gender Identity: What IS God’s Perception Of Dignity?
By accident, I came across a document that relates the adoption of a resolution concerning human sexual identity, by the Kansas Republican Party. The resolution focused particularly on the rights of transgender individuals. The resolution was submitted on February 17th, 2018, by Eric Teetsel, a delegate for the third district, and was adopted. The actual […]
Three Colours – Blue, White, Red
And there I was, thinking that all you needed to play football for your national team was (i) citizenship, (ii) more than average skills and, (iii) to be picked by the trainer. Silly me, I must say. It was pretty much obvious that you must also be of the appropriate ethnicity, to avoid cynical remarks […]
“Transgender” As A Noun – A Step Towards Gender Equality?
I wasn’t planning on writing anything else on the subject, so quickly, until I received a few comments, pointing out that I had made a terrible mistake, making me (for some) unworthy to write anything on the subject of transgender people. On a “Feministing Community” website, I also came across the following devastating statement which […]
Would You Accept A Transgender Person As Your Secretary?
Erratum – I have been correctly told – “correctly”, because that’s the way it is (is it the way it should be?) – that the word “transgender” without the term “person”, should not be used. It is deemed to be insulting, in the eyes of transgender persons. If you think about it, my unintentional misuse of […]
I Can See The Toilets, But Where’s The Bar?
Rightly or wrongly, I cannot relate to how members of LGBT communities feel about themselves and the situation they find themselves in. This does not mean that I’m not aware that, most of the time, these human beings are the victims of severe and unwarranted discrimination. The fact is, that due to my own sexual […]
The Moral Landslide: Defying Discrimination
I’ll be honest with you. Before writing this post, I had no idea what a “LGBT person” actually was. “In what sort of world is this guy living?”, I hear you ask. Well, I live in the same world as you, but the meaning of this dreadful label that has been tagged on the shoulders […]
