I read recently of an actress and writer who was disappointed that neither of her children were gay, but felt that the consolation was her son was autistic.
Really? Quite mind boggling for the average person.
This is one example of kind of world which is evolving around us and society is making it appear "normal".
No one is happy to be straight or have children who aren't inclined to dress up in the garb of someone of the opposite sex. They feel as if they aren't part of some exclusive club.
Whereas families who don't live in some exalted bubble, have to deal with these issues day in and day out, without feeling the need to vomit the information across social media.
There is a new show coming on television about a fourteen year old boy who is "famous" online for wearing make up. Online "fame" rarely translates to the world of television. So we will see where this goes.
I have no problem with children experimenting with cosmetics, but to be put on television like some kind of performing seal, is distasteful to say the least.
The parents of this child, and the parents of children who are pushed into the public eye, should be questioned on their motives and their abilities to raise children.
Moving on to another odd event which took place in an employment tribunal today.
A "judge" has declared that veganism is the same as religion, and people who have this philosophy, should have their rights protected by law.
Some people will use this ruling, prior to it being overturned on appeal, to create havoc within companies and fill the courts with ridiculous claims.
One being that someone who is a veganist, could refuse to drive for a living in case they kill or injure a passing gnat.
We sit back and allow these kind of lunatic judgements to pass without really making a fuss. We accept that we would be in the wrong if we railed against the madness.
Well, now is the time to take a deep breath and say "no more"!
People can believe whatever they want to believe. If they want to worship shop awnings and consider themselves to be Awningists, I have no objection
Admittedly, Awningists sounds a bit like Onanists, and that would be a fair description, but if they're happy and they worship their Awning gods in a quiet respectful manner, I'm happy for them.
Likewise, people who want to be a different sexual orientation to that which they were born, can quietly go about doing something different.
But wanting everyone else to do the same, isn't the best way to find the path to peace and serenity.
Throughout time, people have been had different sexual preferences and in some cultures they were accepted.
In other cultures, they would have been persecuted and are, in some less enlightened countries, still being persecuted.
I would never want the UK to return to the dark days where homosexuality was punishable by law. We are an open and inclusive nation and all the better for that.
What I feel is happening, is that in some people's minds, heterosexuality is in some way wrong.
There is nothing wrong with any sexual orientation which doesn't deliberately hurt others and is practiced by people over the age of consent.
If someone chooses to dress in a suit, with a nice shirt and tie, with shiny shoes and a rolled up umbrella, then they should be allowed to do so. Ballet dancers don't need to be flamboyant.
Similarly, a person who wants to go to work in a pink and purple tutu, then that's equally ok, and I'm sure they'll make a fine police officer.
Jumping around these subjects, I noticed today that some female politician was all over social media and other news outlets, proclaiming to have found true love with a person of the same sex, and declaring herself, pan sexual. make your own jokes
Well, whoop de doo.....but these relationships happen all the time, all over the world, but most people don't feel the need to do it in public.
Politicians imagine that they are of such importance, than that they think the public has to be informed of their private lives.
They are constantly bleating about a lack of privacy, but cannot wait to get in front of the cameras. But that's Liberal Democrats for you!
From what I gather, this relationship was going to be made public in a newspaper, so she outed herself. Surely this is unnecessary in this day and age. No one cares about her sexual preferences, and would probably have had public sympathy if it had been reported.
There is a madness around and a feeling that society is running out of control, and in many ways it is. If we were all treated in the same way, a lot of people wouldn't feel marginalised.
Some of us are still happy to identify as male and female. I know it's considered old fashioned, but I don't actually care. Everyone should be able to be whatever we want to be. I'm only looking for equal treatment of the heterosexual community.
I want us to be on a par with the rest of the communities out there.
There must be no anti hetro abuse, and we should be allowed to wear jeans if we feel comfortable. Women should be able to be women and not be ashamed of themselves.
This stance has to be taken now, before we become yet another oppressed minority.
This short article is a pan serious production for people who still possess a sense of humour.
PS.... I have decided to self identify as a Haitian firefly.
