Current Controversy. Homosexual Culture vs Nature Part 1

1 Nov

I thought that a discussion about this was timely due to the current debate that is raging at the moment in Australia about same sex marriage. Due to there being a postal plebiscite on wether there should be Same Sex Marriage in Australia. I’m divided on the Issue.
I have been interested in theories about why people are homosexual for a long time. I have never told many people about this before but for along time I felt like I was a female spirit trapped in a male body.  As a teen I wasn’t really attracted to either sex. Later I was attracted to females. It was in my 20’s that I accepted who I am.  I found out later that this is called gender dysphoria. Another factor was my low testosterone levels making me more effeminate than my male peers it was many years later that i found this out if I’d known about it during my teenage years it probably would have made them more pleasant rather than the hell that I went through as a teenager due to being different to everyone else.
This personal connection has led me to look into this subject. As with all things that I look into I like to steer away from extremism. There is extremism on both sides of this debate. Anyone from within the community who questions the established narrative is treated horribly basically to pull them back into line so there are those in the community who go along just to keep the peace.
To be honest upfront the conclusion that I have reached after many years of study and based on my own personal experience with people in the LGBTIQ community.  is that there is a small percentage probably 2-3% of the population that are most likely born with a disposition to be attracted to the other sex. The rest are doing it for cultural and other reasons.
Micheal Foucault was the first historian to look into the development of sexuality. His book the History of Sexuality.is a standard text in LGBTIQ studies.
He thought that even though Homosexuality might be a social construct that doesn’t mean that it isn’t real to the people who are experiencing it. He preferred to trace the history of how society has gotten to the stage that today,  His focus was on how western society’s views have shifted over the centuries.

What’s relatively new, is 1) the idea that our desires reveal some fundamental truth about who we are, and 2) the conviction that we have an obligation to seek out that truth and express it.

Within this framework, sex isn’t just something you do. Instead, the kind of sex you have (or want to have) becomes a symptom of something else: your sexuality. Though Foucault traces the origins of this shift back to the 16th century, our modern conceptions of sexuality really take root during the Victorian era

In the Victorian era it became an either or proposition as they sought to classify everything in society into discreet categories. Foucault argues that this way of thinking is a trap.  how do we know when to stop. how do we know that anything is in the right category. Sometimes knowledge can be a enlightening at other times it can be a trap.

A better use of our collective energy than fighting the biology vs. culture war.Is realising that changing our ideas is possible: that’s what Foucault helps us see, by showing us that our categories are not set in stone., we arrived here, and that means we can still go elsewhere—but in order to do that, we have to follow Foucault’s lead and start asking the right questions.
Social construction has moved on since the days that Foucault was writing about it.
http://www.slate.com/blogs/outward/2014/03/04/sexuality_as_social_construct_foucault_is_misunderstood_by_conservatives.html

Today the definition is a  social construct or construction concerns the meaning, notion, or connotation placed on an object or event by a society, and adopted by the inhabitants of that society with respect to how they view or deal with the object or event. In that respect, a social construct as an idea would be widely accepted as natural by the society, but may or may not represent a reality shared by those outside the society, and would be an “invention or artifice of that society”.

A major focus of social constructionism is to uncover the ways in which individuals and groups participate in the construction of their perceived social reality. It involves looking at the ways social phenomena are developed, institutionalized, known, and made into tradition by humans.

In social constructionist terms, “taken-for-granted realities” are cultivated from “interactions between and among social agents;” furthermore, reality is not some objective truth, Rather, there can be “multiple realities that compete for truth and legitimacy.Social constructionism understands the “fundamental role of language and communication”

while this theory was being worked out . Their were other people who thought that social construction could be applied to homosexuality.
This post is already getting long so if readers want to find out more there are plenty of sources out there.

Just to finish this part. There are many aspects of  a constructed reality . it involves emotional, environmental,nutritional , physical and several other aspects. it a complex issue that unless you are willing to spend considerable time researching is hard to comprehend.

The other side of the story is that Homosexuality rather than being a constructed reality is based on biology. To me this is the easier option for those who feel this way. It require little self examination. it can be yep I was born this way and that’s it. This is a byproduct of the Victorian eras classification system that is still in effect today. Society need us to fit into a discreet box. Its easier to accept the category than to fight against it.

Conspiracy Corner. Mandalay Bay false Flag.

14 Oct

Several Online contacts are posting about the Las Vegas shooting being a false flag event. I had  heard the term before and vaguely knew what its was but this event prompted me to look into the term,it basically means that an event happens  eg Las Vegas shootings. The government carries it out then someone else takes the  fall for what happened in this case Stephen paddock.
The accompanying image was share by my FB friend Sara C  . It seems to be being used more and more frequently wether they are happening more frequently is a different matter.

There are several that I have heard of off the top of my head.

Gulf of Tonkin incident, 9/11 , London Bombing,  Sandy Hook massacre,  Pulse Night Club shooting and now the Las Vegas shooting. These are just American ones there have been two that are suspected Australian ones Port Arthur Massacre and Martin Place Siege.

It occurred to me lately after re-watching 9 seasons of X-files and 24. it seems we have been conditioned for a long time to think that the governments of the world are hiding something from us.

it seems people are more likely to think an event is a false flag if those in charge are slow to provide the general pubic with information about the event .

I have not made up my mind either way as way  I am leaning toward there being something suspect about the Las Vegas Shootings.
its strange how there always seems to be some sort of training exercise going on in the vicinity of the event. three that I know of are 9/11, London bombings and now Las Vegas shootings.
I’m more of the opinion that that the government takes advantage of events that they know are about to happen by letting them play out or bolstering the event with crisis actors or second shooters ectera.

September 23 Disappointment.

25 Sep

Even though I wrote about the sign meaning nothing and the probability of the events outlined in Revelation 12 actually happening. Yet as I watched the sun setting and looking for the moon and the planetary alignments. I couldn’t help but be disappointed that something didnt happen.
I can get the attraction of the pre trib rapture view of end times. not having to be worried about what is happening in the world knowing that you’ll be taken up at some time and avoid all the bad things that will happen during the end times.

i was repeating and examining my life for the week preceding the sign just in case iI was wrong and they were right. I was secretly hoping they were right. Life has been pretty sucky these last few years. At times it feels like its careering out of control.

There”s the constant battle with pain. The pain meds make me pretty dysfunctional If I don’t take them I’m functional for a while but then the pain overwhelms me. I power on as I know that f not me then who else will look after what is happening around me.
So  the idea of the rapture has some attraction. It will happen eventually but not til alot of other things have happened before it happens . I hope I can hold out til that day,

 

Final Revelation 12 Update.

22 Sep

I have seen some Youtube videos that argued that the rapture could take place a day or two before the sign on the 23 September,  I’m assuming that  the timing is based on what is happening at Jerusalem as that is the place that the scriptures refer to and are talking about.
Thanks to O Daughter of Zion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W5L-Sa-NdBU&feature=youtu.be
She pointed out in that video that a similar sign had happened 190 years ago.
what is interesting is that it was on that day that the Mormons propose that the angel Moroni gave the golden plates to Josepth Smith to translate.
Since 3 BC and 2017 there are 170 chances of the sign happening as stated before Jupiter takes around 12 years to get back to Virgo again. It could be due to Jupiters influence but in the last century.  a number of important events have happened in years that Jupiter is in Virgo. 1969 man went to the moon and 1945 the end of WW2 to names a few. it could all just be a big coincidence.
Another  thing I have heard is that the sign has to be Virgo as  Revelation 12 says a women clothed in the sun. The pastors proposing this assume that Virgo is the only woman in the sky but she’s not Aquarius is as a women traditional .its just because the Stellarium program that they are using Aquarius looks like a man. There is also traditionally another women in the sky and that is Ophicius but once again Stellarium has it drawn as a man.
So which one is really the women that revelation 12 is talking about Virgo, Aquarius or Ophicuis, These are all on the elliptic so could be clothed with the sun when the sun is in the constellation.
We will know one way or another by the end of this weekend.
In my view there are still too many signs that have to take place before the Savior comes again  I feel that it will happen soon Hopefully in my life time. But most likely before the end of this century.

 

Revelation 12 Update

13 Sep

It bothered me that with my last presentation about revelation 12 that I wasn’t able to say for definite how often the conjunction of the 3 planets Mercury, Mars and Venus occurred. For the last few weeks I have been running different Iterations through the astronomy program Stellarium looking for  how often the conjunction of these three planets happened in Leo.
The conjunction needs to happen when Jupiter is in Virgo so that it fits the description in Revelation 12. Jupiter is in Virgo every 11.85 years. Then it could happen at each 12 year period . but it doesn’t. between 3BC and 2017 AD there are 170 times that Jupiter has been in Virgo. I will slowly look through each of these times to see if the conjunction happens at any other time.

Thanks to Micheal Hieser we know that it happened on September 11 3 BC and it will happen again on the 23 September 2017.  So that is about 2020 years apart. SO it at least happens every 2020 years. To prove this I went back to 4023 and we have the same conjunction. so it seems to hold that it happens about every 2020 years. Steve Cioccolanti has found another alignment near to 6000BC. I cant remember the exact youtube video that he mentions it in its either this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XA6JcY-ikec or this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GrZo4aKeMg.
I hedging my bets here some say that the rapture of the church will happen on this day or just before. As stated in the last video I don’t think there is any thing significant in this that is conjunction in the  the sky.  I’m happy to be wrong and be raptured to be with Christ.
I will keep looking to see if there are any other times this junction has happened

Graylife 01 Surviving life

30 Aug

I consider myself a survivor Many people don’t know what I’ve had to get through to still be here today. I was born with transient IGA deficiency. Immuno Gobulean A (IGa) is part of bodies immune response to fight off infections. The other common ones are IGe , IGgand IGm IGd
IGa is mainly involved with the mucus membranes, it protects it form b=getting infections. https://primaryimmune.org/about-primary-immunodeficiencies/specific-disease-types/selective-iga-deficiency

I was Ok for the first year of my Life probably because I was breast fed and getting my mothers Immunity.  Once that wore off I became very sick and nearly died. To solve the problem I was put on continueas courses of antibiotics. Still i would sometimes get sick mainly bronchitis. This lasted off and on till I was four

Sometimes I wish that I hadn’t been born in this modern age of antibiotics in the old days I probably would have died, Then I would have been spared the suffering that I’ve had to go through in the rest of my life and since I would have died as a child I would have gone strait to heaven to be at Gods side.

But then I’m also glad that I live at this time I think of all the great advancements that have happened just in my life time and I’m grateful to have been able to experience then and see were the world is going.

The scriptures call the last days the great and dreadful day of the lord I think that’s because it will be great for some and dreadful for others.

I wont go on for now but suffice to say that if transient IGa had been all that went wrong medically i would have been ok with it but it was just  the start of a long life with all to frequent medical diagnoses for different Illnesses.

Giving yourself outs. 

17 Aug

On the radio today I heard a guy talking about why he couldnt give up smoking. He said that he had tried many times but just didn’t have the will power.  It got me thinking he was giving himself an out for failing. 

In some ways we all do this. I didnt get that job for xyz reasons. They are just outs obsuring us from the real reason why a certain thing didnt happen that we dont want to face up to. So that when we fail we can blame the out. 

I was thinking that in a lot of ways disabilty can be used as an out. Sure with diabilty it can be a legitimate out for not doing something.  I havr no legs so i cant climb a ladder. Is a legitimate out. 

I do it my self some times i use my disability as an out for not doing rhings thar i know im perfectly capable of doing but dont feel like it that day or a more common thing for me is that im too afraid. So I use my didiabilty as an out.  

It really annoys me when perfectly capable people use outs for no good reason. Im sure they think its a good reason. The guy on the radio and his lacking will power reason. Its an out for failing before you have even failed. 

I dont really know how to word what I’m thinking.  To me its a predermined outcome in one of two ways if you try and then fail the out is there to mask why u really failed

Or the out can stop u from teying anything that you know your going to fail at. So a person would only end up doing things they are good at or if they feel like they are good at nothing they’lljust sit around and turn into a blob. 

Instead of having outs we should acknowledge our strengths and weakness. I come from a long line of short people so i acknowledge that basketball isnt something that is going to come easy to me. If i want to be a basketballer then I’ll have to acknowledge that weakness. If i wanted to play basketball i could use my families short stature as an out. Insteas i could focus on my small size being an advantage . 

Its all in how we see life. Do we use outs to avoid living life and pushing ourselves . Instead we can get rid of outs and rise to the challenge.
