Breaking Down the Bedrock

Today has been pretty quiet. Not a lot of news, so I was catching up on some blogs, email, even managed to tackle an enormous pile of laundry...

You know, casually practicing my "sinful nature,"as Sally Kern, and the likes of Sally Kern, call my lifestyle "choice."

Seems on Easter Sunday, the day of all that Jesus stuff- rebirth, and renewal, love and kindness- Sally missed an opportunity to throw her hands up in the air and say, Save me sweet Jesus.

Clearly I was wrong. I don't think gay people are like "cancer" and should be "eradicated."

Not our Sally. She stuck to her guns, comfortable in her ignorance, using the bible to prop herself up on a pedestal of intolerance on KFOR-TV's "Flash Point."

I'm going to decline, too, to give up my, as Ms. Kerns calls it, "lifestyle which is so destructive to individuals, is at the heart trying to tear down what is the bedrock foundation of our society, which is the family and traditional marriage."

I'm going to keep tearing down our society. I'm going to push the envelope with my three children and my legally wedded wife. Not only that, I'm going to proudly proclaim my kids two dads, two wonderful gay men, and not for one second feel any shame.

That and go to the grocery store.

I'm not sure I've quite felt so powerful as I did today, walking down the pasta aisle and picking out my favorite brand of crushed tomatoes. Because that decision? Well, let me tell you, that decision is part of my homosexual agenda.

Although I think we should have a his and hers kinda thing. The homosexual agenda and the lesbian agenda. I know the guys would be far more stylish, have more parties, and actually network. We lesbians would be far better at process, pot lucks and sharing rides in our Subaru station wagons.

In comfortable shoes.

You know what? I do want to tear down that bedrock Sally Kern is so comfortable living on. I do want to get out a chisel and a jack hammer and blast it away. Because any bedrock that requires calling people "cancer" and deeming a change to their worlds as a threat greater than terrorism?

It has to go. Anything that keeps that kind of hate in tact, anything that makes someone like Rep. Kern feel like she can say publicly on Easter Sunday her brand of bigotry is supported by God? That needs to go.

Personally? I'm going to go infiltrate the Elementary school by showing up, two moms, two dads, at my kids parent teacher conferences. I'm going to attend little league baseball games by the thousands.

I'm going to go to the PTO meetings... okay, that may be pushing it.

I know that each time I do? A few more people realize lesbians are regular folks with kids and mortgages and we forget the water bottle sometimes, too.

And Sally Kern- and all those who feel so privileged to throw hateful stones at me? Well, those stones are going to be coming from her own bedrock.

The one crumbling underneath her.

please make a video of you saying this as a speech and send it out into the world. you speak the truth., something that sally kern wouldn't recognize if it hit her upside the head.

Great post. Sally Kern has some serious problems, not the least of which is that she's delusional. Unfortunately, so are a lot of people.
I'd say ignore her and her ilk, but I know that's completely impossible. But wouldn't it be nice if you COULD ignore them and they'd just go away?

You rock! Gimme a piece of that jackhammer! I'm out there, too, every day - chipping away, knockin' that bedrock DOWN! Who wants to live in a damn patriarchy, anyway? Especially if you're a woman, f' christ' sake!

Seriously though- your post was very true, and very inspiring. It made my heart beat alittle harder and alittle faster. Thanks.

If I traded my car in for a WRX, would that count as a demonstration of solidarity?

Blogger Sara said...

um... what's a WRX?

but YES, let's go tear it all down. start fresh. with open arms and open minds...

7:24 AM  
Blogger Sue J said...

LOL Bob! I don't think the WRX quite makes the mark. From wikipedia:
The Subaru Impreza WRX is a turbocharged version of the Subaru Impreza

Do we gays ever have turbo charged vehicles? Or am I just hanging out with a dull crowd (station wagons, pickup trucks, the occasional VW bug ...)?

But if you got one, your kids would worship you.

But beware, it's a short step from there to (shudder) NASCAR posters.

But fear not, there's another way. I was thinking about you and this phrase from a novel I'm reading kept running through my mind:

"Keepie Uppie Queen".

Do you or Jeanine have any such playground titles in your past? Something useless, but fun, that is at least semi-physical (e,g., if you ever got into magic, Charlier passes, French drops) but within the coordination capacity of 12-year-olds.

Hacky sack? Spitting for distance? Yoyoing? Skinning the cat? Not that, on the monkey bars, silly.

Something totally non-gender-identity-charged, and your kid can have his girl friend do it with him and you and Jeanine.


But something where your trickery and guile can come into play so that (at least at first) the big people can impress the short people.


Somme of my old Y director past coming back. I remember my counselors (all age 12 to 16) in a Saturday Day Camp we had -- every week while we were waiting for the last of the kids to show up, they adored playing "duck, duck, goose". Of course I played too.


Or you could show them how to optimize a database, but somehow that might not be quite as impressive as spitting.

Where the heck do I get off thrusting my advice on you when you're the one who inspires me?

Irregardless (hey, I'm from Pittsburgh), where you lead....

how about spit and drink whiskey?

okay, so I don't like whiskey at all but...

> how about spit and drink whiskey?
> okay, so I don't like whiskey at > all but...

You could always reverse the order

I still think Keepie Uppie is the way to go.

Jeanine: knee, knee, foot, head,

Soccer ball: bounce, bounce, bounce, bounce.
Ben: That's really cool.
Sara: That looks really popular, too.

She's baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack." Have you read Pam's posting on Bilerico this morning?

I swear to lack-of-god that I'm gonna take a poll: can I stop being nonviolent just this once?

[b]Description[/b]

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
[b][/b]
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
