People who dismiss the unemployed and dependent as ‘parasites’ fail to understand economics and parasitism. A successful parasite is one that is not recognized by its host, one that can make its host work for it without appearing as a burden. Such is the ruling class in a capitalist society.

I also think you're using the word "homophobic" too broadly, when you say opposing marriage equality is homophobic. I think you need to define what "homophobic" means. What's your definition, what's the definition from others?

Merriam-Webster: irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against homosexuality or homosexuals 

Me: irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against homosexuality or homosexuals*

*all such fears, aversions and discriminatory feelings or actions are by nature irrational

Opposing marriage equality states that queer people are fundamentally different from — and lesser than — straight people.

Opposing marriage equality states that queer people do not deserve the legal rights afforded to straight people. 

Opposing marriage equality is homophobia.

Shout out to all the socially aware white people who follow me and just silently reblog race related posts instead of saying “not ALL white people” or “we’re ALL human” because
1. they understand and know that it’s not about them and
2. that obviously equality has now been achieved and blindness is not the answer.

Y’all don’t get enough love, I appreciate y’all

LOOK AT THIS MAP

The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) has released this new map of marriage equality in the United States, showing just how far we have come in the last decade. In 2004, 10 years ago, Massachusetts was the first to legalize same-sex marriage, and now there are 32 states + Washington D.C. with marriage equality, 3 states on the cusp, and 4 states awaiting imminent decisions by the courts. Ladies and gentlemen, this is history. We have dreamed of it, we have fought for it and we have won. The LGBT community faces many more important challenges, especially in countries which still imprison and execute homosexuals, but I think this map should bring hope for LGBT people across the globe. The view is changing. Equality is coming. Don’t give up now, we are too close for that. It gets better!

i think it’s so funny when people “hate gays” like why the fuck does it matter who i sleep with at night? “i hate straight people because you sleep with the opposite sex” see how fucking retarded that sounds? just as dumb as you all do who say you hate gays.  also, if you use the bible against gays, you’re equally dumb as fuck.  you know a man walked on water, a snake talked, and some guy lived in a whales stomach in that book too?

I despise when people try to come up with reasons against feminism. feminism isn’t there to degrade men or ignore their issues, but rather to boost women in areas where they struggle. it’s an equality movement- that strikes the issue from the side of the women. there should be a male movement too, if men feel oppressed. however, feminism’s role is not to end oppression/bias against males; that’s not its goal.

we aren’t in a congress round. you don’t need to try to fabricate a “unique” argument that’s unpopular. here, the anti-feminism argument is unpopular because it goes against the equality movement and IT’S WRONG. don’t even try to bash it. don’t even try to belittle women’s issues because you’re obstructing the path to justice.

this isn’t a radical movement. it’s common sense because you should want equality for all. that’s what the movement does, at its core.

For my part, meeting innumerable others from all over the world and from every walk of life reminds me of our basic sameness as human beings. Indeed, the more I see of the world, the clearer it becomes that no matter what our situation, whether we are rich or poor, educated or not, of one race, gender, religion or another, we all desire to be happy and to avoid suffering. Our every intended action, in a sense our whole life – how we choose to live it within the context of the limitations imposed by our circumstances – can be seen as our answer to the great question which confronts us all: ‘How am I to be happy?’
