Coming from the Greek word for same homos
1. the species of bipedal primates to which modern humans belong, characterized by a brain capacity averaging 1400cc( 85 cubic in.) and by dependence on language and the creation and utilization of complex tools.
Homo did not become a slang term for same sex couples until the 1920’s.
For all our lives, we’ve been taught to catiogorize things. Everything has it’s place and every place has it’s thing. Put a lable on it and stick it on the shelf with the others. This, check…that, check. Why do we feel that it is so god damn important to slap a term on something? Well, catigorizing can be helpful and rather important in most cases.
In chemestry, you better know how to lable. It really sucks when you mistake h202 for h20. It is the deferance between being burned from the inside out and being hydrated. It is always good to title your books. You don’t want your five year old picking up your favorite playboy magazine rather than a bedtime story, but then we get into the less difinable things like love, ideas, the world, gender, language, sexuality and people.
In recent news, the federal government of the United States legalized marrage for same sex couples. This is wonderful in so many ways, but it’s also rather bittersweet. Couples are still discriminated against in most places and they still get labeled as, homosexual.
Why can’t we just be humans who love humans? Why do people have to give a name to whom we love? Why should it matter at all? Well, if you get down to the very bottom of it, we go into basic human instincts. To breed and make more babies. The only way that is possible is to have the male and female sex cell. So, most people belive that we can only and should only love the opisite sex.
This is not true. Bisexuality and homosexuality exists in almost every spieces, yet it seems that the fear of this only lives within one. Sure, you might only be able to make a baby with one type of pairing, but not every kind of love has to result in giving birth to a child. You can adopt, or just not have kids at all. It’s fine. The human spieces is going to live on for however long it will even without every woman and man on the earth fucking eachother.
I believe in the rite to love freely. With whomever we want, whenever we want without being discriminated against and having labels put on us. Who the fuck do you think you are telling me what is right and wrong? We all have the goddamn rite to love.
Sorry guys, no video today. Youtube isn’t working and I no longer have a computer.
