The STRAIGHT Agenda!
Sneak hug!
manlypanda
A primary goal of the heterosexual agenda is to promote the lifestyle in public schools.

Talk about straights and straighness as loudly and as often as possible.
Portray straights as victims, not as aggressive challengers.
Give heterosexual protectors a just cause.
Make straights look good.
Make the victimizers look bad.
Get funds from corporate America.

1. Destroying Christian morals
* Changing the definition of marriage, even if doing so infringes on the religious rights of Christians not to recognize it as anything other than sin
2. Promote pseudoscience that legitimizes heterosexuality, such as claims of a never-identified straight gene
* Censoring evidence that the "straight gene" is a hoax
3. Censoring speech against heterosexuality by branding it to possibly be "hate-speech"
* Censoring biblical statements condemning heterosexuality
4. Establishing affirmative action for heterosexuals
5. Expand hate crimes legislation to include sexual orientation
6. Ending the military's and Boy Scout's restrictions on heterosexuality
7. Stopping children as young as 5 years old from attending therapy to repair their sexual preference
8. Promote heterosexuality in schools
* In places like Massachusetts and California, where the straight lobby is the strongest, it starts as early as pre-school. They tell seven- or eight-year-old boys, "If you only like girls, there's a chance you may be heterosexual," or "If you only like boys, maybe you are straight." Well, at that age, all members of the same sex "have cooties."
* You're planting a seed that can totally mess up the normal development process later, when at 12 or 14, kids enter the age of sexual confusion and have trouble discovering the same sex.
9. Force businesses to accommodate their lifestyle
* Suing an online dating website for discrimination
10. Undermining the resolve of latent heterosexuals so that their will becomes too weak to resist the temptations of heterosexuality
11. Pushing for legalized adoption by straight individuals and couples

LOCK YOUR DOORS! SHIELD YOUR CHILDREN FROM THE EVIL MENACE KNOWN AS...THE STRAIGHT AGENDA! THEY'RE COMING FOR YOUUUU!

Do you see how RIDICULOUS this sounds when one word is replaced? I just took an entry from a conservative website about the "gay agenda" and added the word "straight." Notice how they say "victimizers" in the beginning. They know they are oppressing and persecuting gay people. They know it! But hey, it's okay because they're "Christian." *rolls eyes* These people are so ignorant that it's painful. These people actually believe that homophobia does not exist, and that it is actually a cleverly devised tactic by the gays to move up in society. Whaaat? Last time I checked, there was no LGBT meeting about their agenda and how they're going to manipulate the masses into becoming gay. This makes no sense.

Union is NOT enough. Marriage gives full rights to gay and lesbians as couples. I am sick and tired of gay people being treated as second class citizens. I want to see a revolution happen.

GET OUT of people's bedrooms. It would NOT affect you in any way, shape, or form if gays and lesbians were given the right to marry.

If you need me, I'll be fighting for gay rights alongside anyone who is willing to stand up for justice.

Job!

The past...

I got to thinking about my old friend just now. The friend I'd had since I was three years old. Three years old. And about how, as soon as she got into high school, she dropped me like dead weight.

And here's what happened...Collapse )

Well, there you go, there's my sad, reminiscing post for the evening. I hope you are all doing well.

Trouble don't rhyme...
Sneak hug!

Well hi! There's not really trouble in my life, I just couldn't really think of a good title, haha...

I haven't updated in a while. I've been in a sort of transitional period right now. I'm really trying to get a job and not being very successful, but that doesn't mean I won't keep trying. I've also been having a lot of trouble with self-image right now. I bought work clothes the other day, and I was really disappointed in myself because of the sizes I had to buy. I've gained some weight over winter, which I know everyone does, but I just never thought I'd gain this much. And I'm not overweight or obese, it's just a personal thing, I guess.

I really want to start working out in the summer. I want to go outside more, but it's too cold right now. I just don't feel right with myself at the moment, I guess. I'm up at 3:00 am again after I stopped staying up super late a while ago. But I'll get back to it.

I need to set some goals. I mean, I have goals, but I need to write them down.

It seems like when one part of your life is going right, other parts seem to fall into disrepair...I'm determined to have EVERYTHING going right at one time. I don't want to dislike the way I look anymore.

I've mentioned this in other entries, but I'm going to be making more youtube videos...I just don't know when or about what yet...I'll figure something out.

So yeah, this is my venting entry that happens everyone once in a while. Thanks for listening.

Winter Olympics and We Are the World
Sneak hug!
manlypanda
It's just before the opening ceremonies and I CAN'T WAIT! They keep having commercials, but I guess that's because they don't want to have that many during the ceremonies. I can't wait for figure skating! I especially can't wait to see Cathy, Chris, and Allison Reed in the Olympics!

And now, the conversation of me and whiteelephant19 

We are so dumb, haha!Collapse )

Yep, there you have it. Oh shh, the opening ceremony is starting! See you on the other side!
 

Time for another entryyyyy!

So nothing too much has been going on lately, just a few things.

Yay!Collapse )

School is okay, it's a pretty hard semester, but I'm going to get through it. :) After this I'm going to transfer to a 4 year school in the fall, I can't wait! I really love the campus, and the aparments are so awesome!

The other thing that's been going on is that I've been growing my hair out and learning new hairstyles! It is now midback, about 28 inches. My first goal is waist length, second is classic (picture below), and my third is knee length! I've also learned how to do: a cinnamon bun, a rope braid, an infinity bun, a half-up infinity bun, "messy bun" torrinpaige style, a half celtic bun, and I guess by proxy a figure 8 bun, since it's just a vertical infinity bun. I'm so proud of myself! :)

So anyway, that's what's going on, hope you guys are doing well!

Also, hiwhiteelephant19


 

It's my birthday!

Just thought I'd pop in and say that before the day ends, haha!

My teens are over, hello 20! I'm going into my 20's with high hopes and an optimistic spirit!

I love you all, see you next year when I turn...21! The big 2-1...drinking age. Although, for some reason, I can't see myself drinking all the much when I'm 21 and older...I don't now, and it doesn't appeal to me all the much...but hey, I can go into clubs and stuff! But I don't do clubs either all the much, either...haha! Oh well, it'll be awesome and big!

I love you all!

*munches on birthday cake*

Greetings one and all.

Another sort of random entry.

I came back to making videos on youtube not too long ago, a few days ago. It was fun making videos and making friends back then, but I never really got noticed. Not that it bothers me too much, but I'd like to make music videos and such and share it with others.

The point is, I need some good ideas for an introductory video. I've already made a text one, saying that I am back, but I'm not sure what to say in a video without it being a boring vlog with no point. I want to make interesting, funny, cool, smart videos! I will be using iMovie (on my boyfriend's laptop :D), so that will make it look better, but what else should I do?

Let me know if you have any ideas!

Yeah, another weight-related entry.
Sneak hug!

So, according to my BMI, I am 0.4 away from being overweight.

Uhm...really? To be honest, I've never really depended on BMI to determine my ideal weight or body image. I just found this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/77367764@N00/sets/72157602199008819/detail/ on vaginapagina (here's a slide show: http://kateharding.net/bmi-illustrated/) and I think it does a really good job of showing how inaccurate BMI really is, as was said in the community.

I have gained some weight this winter. But honestly, who hasn't? You've got Thanksgiving, then Christmas (or Hanukkah), the New Years..it's a very celebratory time of year! And I love it! :) Plus, it's very cold and windy, and sometimes snowy and icey, and not many people want to go outside. So, to me, it's very understandable that someone would gain weight this time of year.

I am 5'5 and weight 148 lbs., and I feel that I am far from being overweight. I look at myself in the mirror and I look...normal. In fact, I think I look pretty good. :)

So I have to ask, why are people still using BMI? I don't think it's accurate, and I think it leads to a lot of people being misled and causes some people's self-esteem to be lowered.

What do you think?

End of an Era

The title of this blog is a tribute to one of my favorite bands, (old) Nightwish, whose DVD performance of their last concert on the "Once" tour. It was also their last concert with former (and amazing) singer Tarja Turunen (who I loooovvve! :D).

I'm sure a lot of people are going to be making blog posts and videos about the end of the decade, but I don't care! I want to do one of my own! :)

This year, and this decade, has been absolutely huge for me. In 2000, I was ten, and I turned eleven on the 24th of January. It looked like Y2K hadn't happened after all. I moved from my house that I had been living in for seven years into one that was in a new city, and I transferred to a new school for my 6th to 8th grade years. I didn't exactly have the best time, I had just come from a very bad situation in my previous grade school, and this one wasn't much better. Luckily, it was only 3 years, and I received the Michelangelo Award for Outstanding Achievement in Art. Yeah, it was just a grade school award, but it meant a lot to me.

I graduated from 8th grade and began attending high school, which was a big step for me, and I was nervous. I had a lot of good and a lot of bad experiences there. I met great friends, and good teachers, but before my senior year I decided that it was time to move on and go to a different school: a public school that many of my other friends attended. I had a good time there, and realized how different public and private school really were. At my private school, I knew almost everyone, or at least saw the same people everyday. There were about 200 people at that school, and all the teachers and staff knew everyone. However, at my public school, I would see different people everyday. At 2,000 people, it was hard not to treat everyone like a number, which they did. I did have good times at both schools, though, and I am glad I had that experience. I graduated in May of 2008.

After the summer, I wanted to take a year off, but my parents advised me against it, so I attended my first year of college. I had originally wanted to go to a 4 year college right off the bat, but after some consideration, I realized it would be cheaper and more practical (And just as good!) to attend community college, one that many people I knew had gone to. I was taking a lot of interesting classes, and I liked college a lot. Unfortunately, that fall I became very ill for two weeks, and was forced to drop my classes so I did not fail. Luckily, that spring I did not become seriously ill, and passed with flying colors, as I also did that summer and the following fall.

That brings us to this month. Today. December 31st, 2009. I cannot believe this year, and this decade is ending. On one hand, I am very sad. A lot has happened to me this year. I have overcome obstacles, met amazing people, and learned so much. But, on the other hand, I am able to move on with my life, and learn more, and do what I want with my life.

There have been many sad moments, and many happy moments, too many to mention them all, and too important to mention just one. I will say that I am incredibly happy at this point in my life.

I thank those of you who have been in my life, and have given me advice and support during my time on livejournal, and in real life! (Wow, LJ spell check says the word "livejournal" and "LJ" are misspelled! XDDDDD)

See you next year! ;)
