In general, most things are accepted today.
Remember, I'm not saying everything is totally, but at least in the United States there are laws for pretty well every kind of discrimination.
Women now have the right to vote (quick side question: if women are considered totally equal, why do they still say guys can't hit them? That would imply inferiority) , Blacks can use the same drinking fountains, there is no more persecution of Jews...
However, it seems that in a lot of places, gays are still not accepted. We seem to be the last large minority (oxymoron, I know) to be fully accepted.
Whenever I first get in the water and start going at swimming, I always go through three stages in the water.
The first lasts just minutes, and it is just my muscles not being prepared to work, and still getting warmed up, thus the aptly named "warm up". This one is a little tough, but I know it won't last long.
Stage the second is the glucose stage. This is where your muscles start using sugars they have stored up to create more energy for you to move. This stage is more stable than the first stage, as you feel stronger, and move better than the first stage.
Human comprehension seems to be painfully limited most of the time.
I've been thinking now, you know how we divide time? This seems rather arbitrary. Time does not come bundled up into little packets, so the only thing we have to compare time to is our units of time.
Mathematicians think of time as a fourth dimension, one that we always move along, but not always at the same speed. If you move in a space ship at near the speed of light, then you fly to a star and back in 20 years, you may have only aged 2 years compared to your friend on Earth whom aged 20.
When was the first time you kissed someone?
For me, the first time I really held hands was with girlfriend #2. The only thing I could think about the whole time was how it felt like a limp starfish...
I lost my Kissing Virginity 2 years ago to a girl I never knew well, around a campfire in a game of spin the bottle. Novel experience. Not overly pleasant though. This girl had a huge crush on me...
Made out, trying to save THAT one for a boy at least. I've already given out 2 too many of these to girls.
I still have my virginity, thank you.
LGBT just seems unnecesary and stupid.
Before you freak out, I'm saying NOTHING about gay people. Just the concept of gayness.
They have said genes are a contributing factor, but where do these genes come from? These days at least, being gay is often a sure ending of your genes right here and now.
There does not seem to be any reason for why gayness has to exist.
However, had I thought about it, I would think that there has to be at least a FEW people that are attracted to their own gender, or both, or are physically one gender and mentally the other.
Imagine there's a man with a lamp. A MAGICAL man. With a magical lamp. Or woman. Whatever you prefer. Anyway, he turns his lamp on. A minute later, he turns his lamp off. At 1:30, he turns it back on. At 1:45, he turns it back off. At 1:52.5, he turns it back on.
You get it? He halfs the time every switch.
What state will the lamp be in at 2 minutes?
Zeno once said, "at any given time, a moving object is actually at rest. Therefore, motion is impossible."
That means that at any given time, you are actually not moving, therefore, how can you move?
A while ago, I was passing notes with my girl-friend. (I shall say girl-friend, and guy-friend. I only mean relationships when I say boyfriend.)
And one of the papers that we wrote on many times, I put in my notebook, only to have it fall out today. And on it was me complaining about being called queer or gay and all that good stuff.
And, my teacher apparently walked by, picked it up, read it, and recognized my handwriting.
I was okay with that, except that she felt the need to mention it.
Today, me and Uber Christian played leapfrog. I've never really talked to him about what he thinks about my gayness before, and so it's a relief that he's not like this one guy who today just said "GAY!" as I walked by then ran away.
We're supposed to go to Mcdonald's tomorrow for a school orchestra thing. I really don't wanna go, because it's long, I'll miss swimming, which seriously causes me extreme emotional distress (I wish I could always be swimming. I'm always so happy there), and I'll have to eat nasty fatty Mcdonald's food. Bad and bad for you.
The clock turned to 10. Things were winding down. My brother was in the bathroom brushing his teeth. However, I still had excess energy.
I grabbed one of our sleds I called a Crotch Rocket (it has a handle the right place and size to look like a huge dick) and asked my brother if he wanted to go sledding.
Well, no matter. I went outside the hotel myself, and when I walked through the yard to the ski slope, I stopped for a second.
The snow softly falling down, and no one else around.
I ran up the slope about 200 yards.
I sat on the sled, and started down.
Some of us, I'm sure, remember when Tophat talked about the three types of love. If you don't remember this, it essentially goes:
There are three types of love.
Sexual attraction. Just as it sounds. Sexually attracted to someone.
Romantic attraction. You just love this person as a person, and you want to spend time with them.
Aesthetic beauty. You're not attracted to this person, but you realize that they are a great and maybe beautiful person, but you have no lust for them.
I really don't hate religion. It gives people something to believe in larger than themselves.
I really don't hate religion. My main problem with it is that I don't want to go someplace and have some other guy tell me what to believe.
I may have been religious if Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism didn't exist. I think religion is something you should contemplate on your own, and get your own ideas about it.
I DON'T like how people go places to have other people's ideas fill their head. That's not the point, in my opinion.
In case you haven't noticed, the United States is not a true democracy. That is because a true democracy SUCKS ASS.
For example, take California. They use propositions to vote on EVERYTHING. Someone once said "In California, chicken coops gained valuable rights on the same day the gays lost them"
Rhapsody in Blue is probably the hardest song I've ever played on the piano. It's a well known piece by our friend Gershwin. The hardest part is where you're playing triplets with your left hand and eighth notes with your right.
It's hard to mix those. Anyone ever done Rhapsody in Blue?
And, we have this new guy in orchestra to help clean up the room, and apparently one of my friends whom is like best friends with him told him I was gay, and he didn't believe her!
I just want to laugh at that for some reason.
As Shelby is here, I shall refrain from ever refering to this person as anything, as he told me to tell no one. And Shelby, if you figure it out, tell NOBODY!!!
On the bus, a guy told me he needed to talk. We went to the back, and then he said that he thought he was either gay or bi. He knew he'd always been bi, but he said he didn't know that it was THIS gay. He was freaking out about this.
It was hard on him. He was crying, and could barely talk. He kept saying how much it sucked, and had the Why Me? attitude.
He asked me how I had dealt with it.
Me and my project partner, named Kayla, for a huge project, all went to the University of Washington to research things today.
We were reasearching Walt Disney. We found a couple very large books, and I was carrying them while she led. Kayla is the take-charge sort of chick. I was basically the pack mule the whole time.
