Two for one special…

And here I was wondering what the hell to write about when this popped into my headlines. I’ve got a two for one special happening today.

First, take your seats everyone…I want to address American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer: ‘Gays are Nazis’ comment.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I think I laughed so hard, I might have pee’d my pants. Really? Now, we’re Nazi’s? As a Cuban-American, Gay, Jewish, Female I am at a loss for words. I never thought that I would be classified as a Nazi! Damn, and I was just getting used to hearing all kinds of other nasty names.

Okay, on a serious note, because after all, these are serious allegations…we have been persecuted, fired, beaten, tortured and killed because our lifestyles, but we’re the Nazi’s? How am I even supposed to take these allegations seriously? Has common sense left the building?

Snatched from other headlines:

Bigotry backfires: El Paso anti-gay ordinance leaves many without benefits

The ballot measure, initiated by a group of conservative Christians aimed at promoting “traditional family values” asked voters last November to make health care benefits available “only to city employees and their legal spouse and dependent children.”
Tom Brown, pastor of the Word of Life Church, organized the ballot measure, but did so without use of an attorney to advise on the verbiage.
When 55% of the voters approved the measure on Election Day, they eliminated coverage for some 200 people who don’t fit that description — among them city council members and other elected officials, who aren’t technically city employees, and many former and retired city workers.
“This is an example of how direct democracy can have unexpected consequences,” wrote Federal Judge Frank Montalvo, quoting James Madison.
“Any of those people who were excluded from benefits in the ordinance will be excluded from benefits,” said Mayor John Cook after Tuesday’s city council meeting.
Kudos to Federal Judge Frank Montalvo and to Mayor John Cook for standing firm in the face of opposition.
Oh, and by the way Mr. Fischer, we had nothing to do with the ballot in El Paso backfiring on the conservative Christian group. That was all about…dare I say it…gay’s being persecuted once again.

A little confused…

No, I’m very confused and I’m hoping someone can explain this to me. In this day and age when so much is happening around us that merits everyone’s attention…the unrest in the Middle East, Extremist Groups threatening retaliation, Our grand President throwing Israel under the bus (and for the record, he does not speak for me), the Economy tanking, in spite of all the Bull Shit that politicians and the media are feeding us about how America isn’t heading into a recession and I’ll not go into the vast amount of homeless, jobless, and hungry Americans right now, either. Gas companies raping us at the pumps, Insurance premiums out of control, BILLIONS of our hard earned American money going overseas to rebuild, help or just “pay off” Countries that harbor the same terrorists that want Americans dead, not to be dismal about this, but doesn’t it seem a little ludicrous that we are providing the means for these assholes to kill us?

And yet, my 15 year relationship seems to merit more attention, and more energy than the real problems we are faced with today? Someone please explain this to me because I am at a loss for understanding. Since when is my personal relationship with another consenting adult so important that it merits people losing their focus on the real problems at hand?

Do you think that by banning the word “gay” from schools it will make us go away? Do you now think crying that the heterosexual couple is being discriminated against is going to solve the alleged homosexual problem? Are some people that fucking stupid? Sorry, my frustration gets ahead of me…

I, for one, am tried of being the scapegoat for the people who are not willing to face the real issues that plague our Nation and the World. It’s a poor ass excuse that has overplayed its effectiveness.

While people are actively fighting to keep us as second class citizens the world is moving on, terrorist are scheming more plans, natural gas is running out, war is threatening to brew in the Middle East, Israel is in danger of disappearing, the World’s Climate is changing and not for the better, our dollar is losing its value by the day, our technology is falling behind, and our Nation continues to be in crisis…

If it’s the religious aspect that has you stuck then hear me when I say that your message has been delivered. We heard you or at least, I heard you. Now I ask you to treat us fairly and have enough faith in your God to let us sort it out with our maker, when the day comes.

If it’s the political aspect that keeps you stagnant, remember that our great Nation was founded for equality for all, not just for a select group of people.

There are more important and pressing things happening all around us than to focus all this energy on continuing to oppress a group of people simply because of our sexual orientation.

Imagine the change we could make in this world if we could all come together as one equal and uniformed voice.

End of rant…

Bullying by any other name…

  is still bullying.

I am actually at a loss for words. It seems that everyday I hear something that just throws me for a loop.

I know I should be used to the crazy and insane news about bullying, after all, there is a huge anti-bullying movement happening all over the country and the world, but that doesn’t seem to be the case in a South Florida Pompano Beach High School.

Bullying is not just physical. It comes in many forms and one of them is abuse of power. We reprimand, and in some cases even arrest people for bullying, but what do we do when the person bullying is supposed to be the one setting an example?

I’m not surprised that Broward County officials are concerned. Children learn by example and here’s a chance to attack the root of the bullying problem. Now, the question is, are Broward County School Officials going to face this problem head on, or are they going to just slap his principal's hand and sweep this under the proverbial political rug?

In my most humble opinion, Broward needs to use this unfortunate event to send a very clear example that bullying whether as a student, teacher, or school official will not be tolerated. Period.

Reality check…

red-hat-reality-check I believe this post is way overdue. Here are some harsh realties about the GLBT community that a lot of people just don’t realize or have some VERY skewed views about.

First of all, contrary to some popular belief, we don’t go around “converting” people to become gay or lesbian. We leave the converting to the religious zealots.

Secondly, most and yes, I do say most lesbians are NOT men haters. Actually, we don’t even think about men a lot. Sorry, guys, but we just don’t and we certainly don’t think about you enough to hate you. That takes a lot of energy that frankly, you’re not getting from us. Myth busted.

Third, as for the “we need to find a good man” theory. A lot of us, have had a good man or two in our lifetime and yeah, it didn’t change the fact that we are still lesbians.

Fourth, it really pisses me off that some people use pedophile and bestiality in the same content when referring to gay’s. Listen up…just because you don’t or refuse to understand something, doesn’t mean we go around having sex with children or we want to screw your dog. That’s sick and if you really believe that, I suggest you start taking a good look at yourself instead of blaming us for tendencies you may hold, it’s called being responsible for yourself. There is help for that - get it.

Fifth, another shocker. We haven’t ruined the institution of marriage – that was ruined a long time ago and without our help.

Sixth, there is a BIG difference between “Special”, distinguished by some unusual quality and “Equal”, the same as, alike in quantity, degree, value, etc.

Don’t fool yourselves, we aren’t trying to take anything away from anyone. We only want the same rights that any other person or couple has, including the right to marry and the benefits that go along with it.

Harsh reality: We pay taxes, we work, we spend money, we grow old and we die, just like everyone else. The only “special” thing in our lives is that we are continually discriminated against by our Country, our Nation, our People and our Government.

Seventh, we don’t need saving and even if we did, it’s not going to happen by your hand.


Eight: The comment Ellen DeGeneres made about the toaster oven was a joke! You know…humor…haha…funny. Geesh!

Anyone want to add to the list?

And the award goes to…

jackass-award-300x300Mr. Rehyansky, of Hamilton County, Tennessee, argued that men were naturally more promiscuous than women and “it fell to men to swing through the trees and scour the caves in search of as many women as possible to subdue and impregnate – a tough job but someone had to do it”.

The PinkNews headline reads:

US judge says lesbians can be ‘cured’ by male soldiers

In all seriousness, I must say that when I read it, I actually started to get pissed. I mean how could a United States Judge sworn to uphold the law not only justify, but encourage men to rape women…really? Don’t believe me? Click here to read the article for yourself.

All I can say is, wow! I am stunned, but let’s get honest here, folks. For as much as Mr. Rehyansky wanted to make a valid point and an impression, what he left me with was a comedy vision of my brother swinging from the vines mumbling, “Me, Tarzan. You, Jane.” As he pounds his chest. Too damn fucking funny! Okay, I laughed so hard, I cried! <— (It’s a sisterly thing. I adore my brother!)

With all that we, not only as Americans, but as humans beings are dealing with…

The possible and probably retaliation from known terrorist groups for Bin Assholes death. That our economy is crap and getting crappier by the minute! Sorry, no denying that, folks. And that Mother nature is kicking our asses! How many millions of acres burned in Texas and how many dead from the tornado outbreak? Oh, and let’s not forget the earthquake in Japan and the fear of Nuclear disaster due to the tidal wave that killed thousands of people. And that children are needlessly abused and dying everyday, many by the hands of straight, self advocated Christians. And that our valued vets are returning home, homeless. And don’t even get me started on the damage we, humans, are doing to the only planet in the universe that sustains HUMAN life…you’re telling me that lesbians need a “cure”?

So, yes, in the midst of everything happening in the world today, I found this statement hilarious! You dumb ass idiot!

My final thoughts on this? For all who agree with Mr. Rehyansky, you can all go and swing through the trees, scour your caves and maybe find a clue, while the rest of us try to find a cure for Cancer, Diabetes, Alzheimer's and try to protect the little decency that’s left in this world.

I’m not broken or diseased.

Oh, in case you think I forgot, noooo thank you, how about you subdue and impregnate some common sense into your mind, instead…it’s a tough job, but someone has to do it. :0)

Obsessed with the thought of sex…

lesbiansex Wifey and I have had many discussions about sex and the one reoccurring thing that keeps popping up (no pun intended) is that I think differently about it than she does.

For wifey, there is a time and a place for sex. For me, the time is now and the place is anywhere we have a few minutes alone. So, that has led to some interesting conversations that, believe it or not, have made me, the erotic author, blush.

Here’s a secret, for all the explicit writing I do, I can’t talk about sex, at least not with women I consider femmies. If wifey breaks into a discussion about strap-ons or dildos, I break into a sweat. Don’t ask, I couldn’t tell you why, but rest assured that wifey has had a lot of fun with that one, believe me.

Back on topic, now…here’s the thing with me, I don’t talk about it, but I am always thinking about sex. Sex in the shower, while doing the dishes, in the backyard, while driving, in a plane, at the movies, before surgery, when I’m not feeling well, when I am feeling well, sex after sex. Oh hell, the list goes on and on. We even have a running joke that I’ll be thinking about sex on my death bed. LOL

Ask any butchie, anytime, if they want to get laid and I can almost guarantee I’d know what the answer is. Ask a femmie and you run a 50/50 chance of success.

Okay, I’m a little obsessed with sex, I get it, and no, I don’t have sex as much as I think about it. It’s not physically possible, but that raised the question for me, is there truly a difference in how often femmies secretly think about sex compared to how often butches think about it? And if there is, could it possibly be because, just perhaps, butch woman are genetically made up differently than their fem counterparts?

Alright, let’s hear your opinion…

All this talk about…

Arianna Babies! Well, I have to say that at the very least, the subject has us thinking about starting a family and understandably so.

Apart from the fact that our cousin is pregnant, our good friends just had a baby, and 9 out of 10 couples around us has kids, we’ve talked about it for the past 15 years and neither one of us is getting any younger.

Babies. Babies. Babies!

Okay, maybe one baby wouldn't be so bad, right? I mean, couples have “Oopsy” babies all the time and they manage to make it work, especially with the economy the way it is.

The problem with us having an “Oopsy” baby is that we would have to plan the entire event. Kind-of takes the element of surprise out of the equation, doesn’t it?

Rationally, I can think of a thousand reasons not to have a baby, but the truth is that I can think of that many reasons why we should.

Nothing is official so don’t get your hopes up, but I would love some input and feedback.
