Hello dear world, it’s Tuesday.
WORST PICK-UP LINE (TODAY)
*guy gets hit in the head with a golfball and is lying in the bunker*
“Maybe we should get some ice to but on that bump”
“Ice? no, I was thinking more… Champagne? Eight o’clock?”
Oh boy, he used the old heaven line as well.
I love terrible pick-up lines. They always make me laugh. I mean, what is not hilarious with a guy coming up to a girl in a bar saying, “What would you like for breakfast?” It’s crazy. Who falls for that? Who actually goes home with that guy?
Do you actually like it when a guy comes up to you and say, “Did it hurt? When you fell from the sky? For, with a face like that, you must be an angel.”
That most be one of the oldest lines in the book, and most guys probably have memorized.
Now, I am of course not saying all guys are like that. I bet not even the majority of them are. The nerd guys around here are probably awesome.
And that wasn’t even what I was planning on talking about. The movie just disturbed me.
What I wanted to talk about was Miss California, who answered a question in the Miss USA pageant. As nerds we often pride ourselves with having good values. We accept people for who they are, and don’t judge them. At least most of us don’t. Most of us are very open to same-sex marriage, and feels that people should be able to fall in love with no matter who they want, no matter if they’re male or female. It’s love that matters, not the sex of the person you love.
So, in the pageant Miss California, Carrie Prejean I believe her name was, answered a question asked by judge Perez Hilton. He asked her if he believed that the rest of the states should follow Vermont (the fourth state that legalized same-sex marriage), why or why not.
At first she said that she thinks it is great that americans can choose between one and the other. THEN she said that she was raised with the belief that marriage should be between a man and a woman.
A lot of people were offended by what she said. Perez shook his head before they changed the camera, looking incredibly offended. But not all disliked what she said.
After reading comments on the videos that are up on Youtube, one is really amazed over the amount of idiots there are in this world. And not just from one side, no, many people on both sides wrote crazy things.
I feel that she is just a person who stated her opinion. Like she said, she was raised that way. You, like me, might have been raised with the belief that people have the right to love anyone they want. I don’t care if you sleep with, marry, mow the lawn or bake cookies with someone of the same sex. It’s your choice!
But just a few decades ago, this wasn’t okay.
It is an opinion. Just like you have the right to yours, she has the right to hers.
Just because you feel that yours is right, doesn’t mean you have the right to condemn someone who doesn’t agree with you. Like I said before, I LIKE same-sex marriage. People should have the right to marry whoever they want. JUST, as people have the right to their opinion.
Don’t hate her because she was raised differently. Are you also one of those who hate religion because it exists?
Just let people be who they are. It’s not as if the woman is leading the village train of angry farmers equipped with torches. She was JUST raised differently.
I love gay people. They’re awesome. I don’t think they shouldn’t be regarded as everybody else, because they should be able to get married just as everybody else. It’s a right everybody should have. Marriage should be for everybody, not just for those who decide the want to spend their lives with a person of a different sex.
Marriage is a promise, not a “man chooses woman” situation. It simply means that you have promised to love somebody, and that you are stating it to the world. You say “I love this person, and I want all of you to know that”. Why don’t homosexuals have that same right?
If you are christian and gay, you want to get married in a church, by a priest.
And why did they come up with the idea of “partnership”? Why not just let them get married? It doesn’t hurt you or anyone else? It doesn’t serve any purpose when you deny them that right.
I don’t understand.
It truly doesn’t make sense.
But humans have simply not gotten as far as we would like to pride ourselves with.
For example, women. In Sweden women didn’t have the right to vote, until 1921. (We had an “age of liberty” during the 18th century when women were allowed to vote, but I don’t think it was “for real”. If you understand….)
Women have always been regarded as lower creatures. Not as good as men. When women weren’t regarded as that anymore, people needed other goats to blame. The gays became the goats.
If that makes ANY sense. At all.
And now I have screamed for too long. I hope this post doesn’t offend anyone, that was really not my meaning in any way.
