I Support Gay Love

This past week has been a landmark one in the gay rights movements.  While some states came closer to allowing same sex marriage, prospective Obama-2012 voters lashed out at the President for his lack of support and failed campaign promises to the community.  The week was rounded up by a former football star commenting that allowing gay marriage to happen would create utter "anarchy".

In light of all this, I would like to re-post a portion of a post I wrote a couple of years ago, "Not Special, Just Equal", when I was dissenting with a fellow HuffPo commenter on whether or not gay rights mattered at all.

The end of the post goes to something I have been saying all along - this is not about sexual partners, but LOVE and who a person can and will love.  That seems to get forgotten by the anti-gay rights folks when they are spewing their often ignorant and bigoted hate.

I don't just support gay marriage or, even, all gay rights.  I support GAY LOVE (or, better, LGBT LOVE).

Here is the end of that post, reiterating this very stance:

What bothers me, too, is that in all the hubbub and din, all the people decrying "gay sex" as deviant and gay people as aberrant for engaging in it - just for larks, of course - is the idea of Love.  Being gay isn't just about - isn't really at all about - who you have sex with or want to have sex with.  It's about who you can and will Love.  Yes, homosexuals are sexually attracted to the same sex.  But do not forget, that attraction - just like with straight people - can and does lead to more than just meaningless sex.  It becomes relationships, it becomes lasting partnerships, and long-term affairs.  It becomes Love.

And that is what this battle is really about.  No one can choose who they fall in love with - not straight people, gay persons, bi individuals, or anything in between.  And, therefore, it is not a choice for the lesbian who falls in love with the woman who becomes her partner of 20 years or the gay man who falls head over heels for the person he knows is his soulmate, no more than it is a choice for the woman who marries her high school sweetheart or the man who rekindles a romance with the woman he never got over from college.  We don't choose who we love...love has it's own agenda.

The most beautiful thing about this is that Love always wins.  It will prevail; it always does.  And gay people will win their rights.  I guarantee it.

In the meantime, to all the naysayers, I say think long and hard about the reasons you are against homosexuals or gay rights/marriage.  Remember what this country stands for, and take some time to re-read the teachings of the man you base your religion on.  You have a "choice", now - and the choice is to choose acceptance, understanding, and compassion over denial, ignorance, and hatred.  You like to ask, "What would Jesus do?" and so I posit that to you now - what, indeed?

    It has normally been stated that he who controls the media, controls the minds of the men and women. The printing press gave an advantage to people who utilized it.
    Nowadays, these who regulate the data have practically unlimited qualities to control and capitalize on that facts.
    As a result, information and facts technological know-how has been a sport
    changer in virtually each individual sector perception its arrival.
    The era of large facts is now the changer of the match.
    All right so, who owns the future in the up coming
    time period?

    Nicely, allow me choose a stab at it, but very first to capture
    you up to pace on this topic, why not read this book under:

    "Who Owns The Long run?" by Jaron Lanier, Simon & Schuster, New York, NY, 2013, 416 web pages, ISBN: 978-one hundred forty five-16549-67.
    Also the writer of "You Are Not a Gadget" which was a person of his earlier textbooks, posted by Classic Press,
    240 webpages, 2011, ISBN: 978-030-738997-eight.

    The creator operates now for Microsoft Investigation, prior he is
    experienced stints doing the job with all types of companies which use data to
    drive revenue - he's worked with algorithms for significant-frequency investing,
    and complex desktops for insurance policies organizations pinpointing hazard examining all the big facts at their disposal.
    He is viewed organizations like Google, Microsoft, Facebook shift forward of the pack -
    providers like Cisco, Oracle and some others build the devices to just take
    the sport to the highest amounts.

    Wonderful, and this tends to make sense, his expertise, encounter and observations
    are relevant for the potential and in hindsight.
    Now then, what of the long run, will major info still rule the earth or will AI, Robotics, BioTech and NanoTech acquire
    the guide? Nicely, I suppose I could submit to you, as may
    well Jaron Lanier, that in these sectors, massive facts will assistance all those
    businesses leveraging that info the most effective arrive at the leading and command and own all those industries.

    Think about how critical big info and computing electric power is to synthetic
    intelligence? Without the need of the computing electrical power it's not beneficial
    at all is it? What of robotics, similar point suitable, and you have to merge AI with robotics to get to the
    fullest probable there, all over again, huge data is keenly
    crucial to accomplishment. In BioTech, the very same issue, we now see
    that do not we? DNA isn't basic, it takes
    computing electric power to determine it all out.
    Materials science is simple in strategy, but elaborate to make it do
    the job for you. It appears that large details, and details technologies will rule the sport for the future
    period won't it? Make sure you look at all this and feel
    on it.
