Tag: LGBTQIA

Scandals to the right and to the left, I just wanted to drink some coffee. . . .

Well why not make another post about another Hollywood elite coming out as a possible rapist?Again we are asked to find proof and again someone is hiding under the roof of alcoholism to deem their actions acceptable. Worst of all what Kevin Spacey has done by lurking under the umbrella of love in the LGBTQIA is unacceptable. He took the community and then threw them so far out, that he might as well have thrown mud on them laughing while walking away in a very Underwood tone.   

Taking such a beautiful community and hiding a 30 year old crime under it, is beyond heart-wrenching. It was so extremely tone deft coming from a man who portrays such a well spoken egotistical southern gentleman . Kevin, you should of known better. YOU play the problem with America and on a personal level you COULDN’T even get it right.

Shocked? Not really, Mr. Spacey always had a creepy vibe to him on the screen but I just thought it was his choice of characters.
Surprised? Surprised that a Hollywood actor blames alcohol on his ability to jump on a young child and commit adultery? Should I be surprised because a boy came out? Because neither of these moments are surprising to me. Boys are raped too, we just had a talk about this didn’t we?

Appalled? Only at Mr. Spacey’s apparent disregard of the community he should of opened his arms out to. This is only about pride and Mr. Spacey figures that while his credits roll so high under his series and movies pretty much we will accept.I am not sorry to say WE DO NOT ACCEPT.

I am NOT sorry there Kevin. Not all of us are going to sit quietly while you continue to backtrack your way out of the spotlight. You want to tell me about your privacy? No, see, you took that away from yourself and your victim(s). See I know they will come out of the woodwork. You did that side smile and wink thing didn’t you? You really are not that far from the characters you play, in fact, now I see you were never an actor you were in fact always committed to the parts you played because that was you.You were always this guy whose shadows foreshadow the human inside. We found you and we will fight you.

All I wanted was a cup of coffee and to read about how orange face will soon be impeached, however, instead I got another heart pumping, body aching truth that the people who we thought we could trust we can’t. You are all going down and with your sinking ship I bid you a fare-thee-fucking-well.

Overcoming

It seems like every time I turn around there is something to be outraged about. I am always unsure of how to begin my epic rants on the bull fucking shit that is going on in the world today.

How do WE address the bullshit tax code 45 is putting out or the way that Pence was the gd sign off of us no longer allowed to sue the monsters of banks and pay day loans?

How do WE even begin to talk about the paraysis of a nation due to political mayhem and the forthcoming of women who are speaking out against their abusers?

ICE agents holding on to a 10 year old cerbral palsy victim for a gal bladder surgery?

HOW THE HELL IS CORY FELDMEN? IS HE ALIVE STILL? MAN IM WORRIED.

It is so much to take in every day and so I thought maybe you need a relief too? I want to tell you something that I experienced yesterday that I thought was absolutely beautiful. Several things actually… so here is my story…

My friend S and I were on marco polo the other day and she was telling me some stories and I had to stop because she kept reminding me of great memories that I HAD TO TELL at that moment. You know those moments when you want someone to stop talking so you can spew out a memory so you wont forget it? It is one of the things I do like about the app, i can pause hers, go into my own and then go back. I remembered how my grandmother was moving and called in the middle of the night because she couldnt make pudding. We took all of her tools and packed them as she was moving in hours and  it was the funniest memory I have of her before she passed way. I never had a good relationship with her so it was so delightful to laugh hysterically with a friend of a moment that I was really annoyed with at the time but absolutely love later. I LOVE good memories, ones that slip behind all your daily struggles and suddenly reappear to make you feel that life is well lived. Those are the best arent they?
Going on with my day I had decided that it was time to go to a meeting as an ally of the LGBTQ community locally. I wanted to attend their meetings but had never stopped my daily life to make it a point to go, and the other day was it. I wanted to see how they operate, how people locally are affected or what they have to bring to the table.  It was a good night to attend. There were several teenagers there who were going through their transition from women to men, a man going through transition as a woman, and new joiners who moved here recently from Puerto Rico. There was a good group of just Allys there and not just those who are LGBTQ. It was one of the most accepting places I have visited. When we went around to introduce ourselves a few people were too scared to talk or nervous and they said ‘Thats fine you talk when you feel like you can’ and they moved on and there was not that….. awkwardness in the air. I sat there sincerely stunned at some of the stories unfolding and some of the amazing mothers who sat there so proud and so supportive of their transitioning child(ren). For the first time in a really long time my faith in humanity was restored in front of my eyes.  It made me realize that with all the chaos and pain there is hope.
That is all for my story for now, as it is TRICK OR TREAT night tonight and I must get the kiddos ready to participate. If you can though please go to soemthing locally, even just to sit as a bystandard. Listen to stories of other people and I hope maybe you too will find that there is amazing things happening all around you that you just do not see.

 

 

AOL, Caffeine, Nicotine, and Death! (06.30.2017)

Some times you have to lighten up the mood, and you need to dive in to some regular conversation. There is a lot of hope out there in the world and there is a lot of damage too, however we need to find a little bit of a limelight for our souls. We can not fix the world all at once but one by one we can fix the world; or however that saying goes; and we hope that the podcast this week helps lighten up the more heavier previous and future posts.

Want to remember AOL? What was your screen name? Do you even log in any more? Does anyone have a disc for free minutes still floating around in their old CD spindle? Good days are behind us, and the classics will always remain true to our heart.

Discussion on writing is always a hard one. How do you feel about your own writing? (Feedback is necessary) Did Hemingway have it right with his rum bottle? Did Hunter S. Thompson find his voice through his drug and alcohol use? Up for debate always why alcohol and drugs inspire people on a deeper level.

We briefly speak of the wonderful month of June which is PRIDE month!We support all of our friends and family that are a part, an ally, an advocate of the LGBTQIA community. We respect you however your self has designed you to be and although not eloquently spoken we do wrap our hands around your beautiful selves.

Rant Time begins!

Oil spills, the earth, how are we not taking care of the very thing we live on? We can not figure out how people would rather have wealth in their pocket than a future. Some things are beyond the realm of sanity and there is no fighting that.

On to varying degrees we put our spin on the service industry; We Salute our Shorts to you; and this is one industry both Miles and Crawford know deeply. IN all honesty, quit giving fake tips on Sundays, no one appreciates it.

When is the next podcast? Well currently we both have been overbooked in life however this week we are going to catch up, roll, and laugh on. Episode 4 is going to be great and all about the great FREEDOM!
