On Humankind and Inane Comments on Social Media

We would all profit by doing some research, with bona fide sources, before posting comments on Social Media. Words are like tossed stones. Once in the air, they can never be retrieved.


Also, people should focus on people's hearts and not on what they do with their lower abdomens. Humankind, scientists tells us, has been walking this Earth for a good 200 thousand years. Way, way before current monolithic philosophical ideologies came into place.  Homo Sapiens, then, must have had all sorts of experiences... 


Sad to see, in our opinion, unenlightend comments about the repeal of DADT, the long-awaited-for Equality policy signed by the American government. DADT had been "the official United States policy on homosexuals serving in the military from December 21, 1993 to September 2011. The policy prohibited military personner from discriminating against or harassing closeted homosexuals or bisexual service memebers or applicants, while barring openly gay, lesbian, or bisexual persons from military service."*


It's true people in this hemisphere have their relative freedoms and, especially in the United States, folks are able to express their opinions freely regardless of what you or the next person might think. That is an exercise in Democracy. Not many can say what they think, unfortunately.


It's also clear to many that the United States Army is an All-Volunteer-Force and that, apparently, people are there because they want. And are paid for it!


There is a solution, though, for those who dislike the current vanguardist shift within this specific military organization, to wit: they should brush up on their skills and move on to other jobs where, perhaps, they will find shelter for themselves and their outdated opinions.

  1. Very much the truth...it is like religions that want the government to place a seal of approval on their hatred and desire to discriminate...if you want to do that, you can still do it, just don't ask the government to do it for you.
    You can belong to any of those Evangelical-Fundamentalist cesspools of ignorance and still be a bigot.
