And yet somehow the UPS driver still always delivers my packages to my neighbors’ houses. 🙄

yeah and at the point people have rolling ovens delivering pizza, maybe they should just have gotten one at the store and cooked it at home.

we have this and yet most people on the planet are sure their invisible friend or friends lets them control other people’s rights and genitals. religion is mental illness, devoid of evidence and facts, and is not even internally consistent. i think of the “bible” a collection of dead sea scrolls as the early internet – poetry, propaganda and porn.

it never made sense to me that a being capable of creating the universe, would fixate on one planet, on one species and about gentialia.

the bronze age scrolls had a very limited understanding of the universe and why the deities were invented, placeholders. put aside in the dustbin of history, owing to religious conflict often ending one or both sides. If not other disaster – disease, drought or geological or climate event.

Queer Professions

There may be some truth to the ‘gay jobs’ stereotypeThere is an unusually high concentration of gay or lesbian workers in certain occupations. For example, both gay men and lesbians and are overrepresented in psychology, law, social work, and university teaching. And there are real occupational patterns behind some popular stereotypes, from the gay flight attendant to the lesbian truck driver.

There may be some truth to the 'gay jobs' stereotype

CDC Worker With Lanyard Instills Faith That Lesbians Will Fix COVID-19A photo of a woman working for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has inspired an outpouring of love for lesbians on Twitter from users who feel comforted in the face of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak by the sight of a woman assumed to be lesbian with a lanyard around her neck.

https://www.thestar.com/opinion/letters_to_the_editors/2020/07/16/jk-rowlings-transgender-comments-are-misunderstood-and-misconstrued.htmlJ.K. Rowling’s transgender comments are misunderstood and misconstrued | The Starwww.thestar.com

from the article:

“she is raising an alarm about the increasingly common trend to use a gender-neutral term, like “people,” to group together the LGBTQ community with biologically born women, (who identify as women), to the point where it is becoming unacceptable to use the word “woman.”

Nina Notes the word “heterosexual” is missing from the above paragraph.

and it is a problem for White Heterosexual Women to be included on par with LGBTQ2, some of whom are white, the most visible and represented portion of the qmunity.

White Heterosexual Women are the group most likely to be allied with part of PFLAG – Parents and friends of. leveraging their lesser than heterosexual male privileged, on behalf, so as each group steps up, the idea is turn around and help the next group to access rights and dignity of person.

There is no question that equitable linguistic representation demonstrates respect and tolerance for more complex gender/sexual identities. But, scrubbing language of essential gender-specific words, which work eminently well for society at large, and arguably for most women, can hardly be called tolerant or respectful.”

Nina notes: including self definition as well as determination, each to our own identifiers and labels and not sticking them on others, each to our own.

so – who is what, and who has what rights. in 2020. this is why heterosexuals are not in the qmunity of LGBTQ2, not because they are oppressed and murdered less, they are not, they are often married off to their rapists, after all, white heterosexual women were the chattle of the heterosexual men, property under the law, not named in the law as having rights; while there were laws against sexuality and passing for a gender in the terms of that centuries ago era;

with ethnicity of any person often reduced to being property rather than persons, with or without full legal rights of financial and body sovereignty.

LGBTQ2 were marginalized in that society, over time and nations.

Billie Holiday: Lady Blue

Our Daily Elvis

July 17, 1959

Billie Holiday died in a New York City hospital from cirrhosis of the liver after years of alcohol abuse, aged 43. (While under arrest for heroin possession, with Police officers stationed at the door to her room.) In the final years of her life, she had been progressively swindled out of her earnings, and she died with $0.70 in the bank. Holiday had a longtime addiction to drugs and alcohol, but evidence suggests she died from a kidney infection. Among Holiday’s best-known songs were “Lover Man,” “Strange Fruit” and “God Bless the Child.” It was not until 1986 — 27 years after her death — that she was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

She served time in prison and had a number of lesbian relationships while incarcerated. Throughout her career, Holiday was openly bisexual and was rumored to have dated a notable…
