Today, social rebel rousers are called ‘activists.’ Last century they were called ‘shit stirrers.’
When I read my newspaper this morning I learned a new word – “heteronormativity.” I am not sure what this word means but I think it refers to people who believe that being heterosexual is normal and, by doing so, are perpetuating heteronormativity.
To change this belief, the Australian Association for the Teaching of English want it to be compulsory for high school students to read LGBTIQ literature to try and destroy “heterosexual privilege.” What on Earth is “heterosexual privilege”?
I am heterosexual but have never felt privileged (or proud for that matter) of being heterosexual. To steal a line from the LGBTIQ lobby, “God made me this way.”
Was it only a couple of years ago it was stated that recognising homosexual and lesbian marriages would not send western society down a slippery slope. Perhaps they were right, it seems to me we are slithering down a greasy pole to the bottom.
The mantra of the ‘me too’ movement is the woman has to be believed. I suppose this is because acts of sexual misconduct usually take place when no one else is around to witness the incident.
The reality of this is the accused is guilty with little or no chance of proving innocence. But, what if the accused and the accuser were both required to take a polygraph test? While polygraph tests are not ‘foolproof,’ they would provide a very strong indication of who is telling the truth and who is not.
This requirement would reduce the number of false and damaging accusations being made against innocent people.
When a person is taken to a specified place on a specified date at a pre-arranged time to have their life terminated, it as called an execution.
Many western countries have abolished executions because they are considered to be cruel and barbaric acts.
When a woman goes to a specified place on a specified date at a pre-arranged time to have the life of her unborn child terminated, it is called and abortion.
What a difference a word makes.
No matter what reason is proffered for the abortion to take place, the unborn child is the innocent victim of circumstances not of their own making and is robbed of their one and only chance to experience life on planet earth.
