I’m not one to watch the news…because it’s super freaking depressing… but a couple of days ago I was listening to Elvis Duran and the Morning Show (the best morning radio show…EVA!!!) and they brought up the situation that’s going on in Indiana and Arkansas (this is how I pronounce it…ARE-Kansas…I like it better that way). For those that don’t know what’s going, because your like me and don’t watch the news as much, Indiana and Arkansas had passed a law/bill allowing Religious Freedom. Which to me just sounds like letting people legally discriminate against others that have a different sexual orientation than what they’ve been told to believe is correct. I completely understand that every one has the right to believe what he/she wants and I respect that, but when it comes to a point where your demeaning or degrading someone for who they are is not acceptable. When I was younger I was taught to treat people the way you would want to be treated, amongst other things like…Emily-Ann don’t put that in your mouth…Emily-Ann stop moving so much…Emily-Ann don’t touch that…and my favorite one was “coño niña para de correr tanto” (which basically means WTF girl stop running around so much) I know you wouldn’t be able to tell from the Awesomeness that you reading but I was a demon child. On the news the other day (yes I watched it, but only because the control was no where near me) I heard a family owned business refused service to a paying customer because of that persons sexual orientation, and that makes me wonder how they would feel if that happened to them (I’m pretty sure they would feel like crap ass). I’m not trying to disrespect anyone’s religion, and if I did I’m truly sorry (I have absolutely nothing against religion…I honestly don’t understand it because I’ve never been a religious person).
Being that we’re in the year 2015 one would think we would have learned from the past struggles this country has had with segregation. I for one think it’s freaking (this is really meant to be the other F word *wink*… but I’m trying to some what sensor myself) time people be accepted for who they are. I don’t mean to get all patriotic and shit but America is known for its diversity… soooo WTF bruh. Just because someone doesn’t fall under another persons definition of normal or right doesn’t mean it should be held against him or her. On that note, I would love to hear your thoughts on the subject so don’t be afraid to write to me. Whew… Holy cheese sticks its exhausting being serious.
Love, everything about Ya, from the Moon and Back,
P.S. from what I read the other day, Indiana has made some adjustments to the law stating that no one can be turned away due to their sexual orientation.
