Kids React to Gay Marriage

This is a great candid video, the children are honest and adorable. Maybe our society really is getting better if this generation continues to be as open minded as they are in this video. Its interesting to see how they make sense of everything and how open they are to share their options.

What the Research Really Says about Gay Parents and their Kids

Great Article I found posted on Facebook the other day….My two take-aways:

“being raised by homosexual parents does not harm children’s social development, education or emotional health”.

gay parents “tend to be more motivated, more committed than heterosexual parents on average, because they chose to be parents [emphasis added],” while heterosexual parents have an accidental pregnancy rate of nearly 50%.

Gendercide !

I came upon this book a few years ago and it changed my life in the way that I view the world we live in. They have also made a documentary (2012).

… MORE GIRLS HAVE BEEN KILLED IN THE LAST FIFTY YEARS, PRECISELY BECAUSE THEY WERE GIRLS, THAN MEN WERE KILLED IN ALL THE WARS OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY, they write, detailing the RAMPANT GENDERCIDE in the developing world, particularly in India and Pakistan. Far from merely making moral appeals, the authors posit that it is impossible for countries to climb out of poverty if only a fraction of women (9% in Pakistan, for example) participate in the labor force. China’s meteoric rise was due to women’s economic empowerment: 80% of the factory workers in the Guangdong province are female; six of the 10 richest self-made women in the world are Chinese. The authors reveal local women to be the most effective change agents: The best role for Americans… isn’t holding the microphone at the front of the rally but writing the checks, an assertion they contradict in their unnecessary profiles of American volunteers finding compensations for the lack of shopping malls and Netflix movies in making a difference abroad.

Get Yourself an Asian Bride!

Clink the link above to see one of the many available websites that offer American males an opportunity to find (dare I say *buy*?) an Asian bride. This one was founded in 1995 by 3 then-single males in Arizona.

In their FAQ page — “Is age an important factor?”

Answer: Studies show men and women seek different goals in marital partners. Men seek youth and beauty. Women seek mature, older, healthy, intelligent, successful, financially stable men who will love and respect them, with the ability to protect and provide for the family. It is a fact of life.
The Russia culture lends itself to reasonable expectations and has not been media programmed with a youth-oriented outlook on life.
Many Russian men lack a certain maturity towards family and relationships.
Most Russian women are extremely mature for their years.

Facebook New Gender Options

Around 2 weeks ago, Facebook introduced 56 gender options that members can choose from to display on their profile. Although I was aware of LGBTQ, I never knew that there were this much variety until our class discussion today. Is this common knowledge in America? I assume they faced high pressure in order to make these changes. Do you consider this an improvement for society?
