it took 15 minutes for my aunt to start my family saying shit like 'muslims are taking over the country' and 'well this one guy on big brother was saying homosexuals need to go get fixed by a doctor and he got told off and I mean, it was just an opinion' followed by my dad, uncle and aunt saying 'well they just need to get over it. It's just an opinion.'

Okay, I don’t care if they end up hating me for this but these opinions and arguments of opinions are kind of a bit over the top.

1) Muslims are not taking over. They’re looking for a nicer place to live than, oh, I dunno, WAR TORN IRAQ AND STUFF. Granted, some of them should probably go through more legal routes of travel if they can, but just because they choose to come here doesn’t mean that they’re gonna take over Australia. They’re doing what they can to escape. Isn’t that what we would do?

2) You cannot ‘fix’ a homosexual. It isn’t a decision to like the same sex, it’s just the body doing the same thing it would for any other person you found attractive. Any ‘fixing’ would end up becoming a cruel, arduous brainwashing, which I’m not sure is legal, but even if it is it sure as hell isn’t the right thing to do and I’m sure any doctor would be frowned upon for it. Look at the Hippocratic Oath, for example: Doctors take a vow before completing their studies in which they agree to be an advocate for their patients. If somebody decided to take a homosexual for ‘treatment’, and the ‘patient’ was against it and told the doctor they weren’t in need of any, the doctor would not treat them. They must serve in the highest interests of their patients and if someone was condescending enough to take them to see a doctor about their ‘condition’ then surely what would be in the patient’s highest interest would be a confidence boost, so that next time they’d be able to tell them to f*%^ off and find somebody else to play nurse with.

3) Just to repeat: YOU CANNOT ‘FIX’ A HOMOSEXUAL. THEY AREN’T F*%^ING BROKEN. AND MUSLIMS ARE NOT TRYING TO TAKE OVER THE COUNTRY. THEY ARE TRYING TO ESCAPE BECAUSE HERE IS PRETTY AWESOME COMPARED TO IRAQ.

If people are going to make assumptions like this, then people will get the wrong idea.

If people say ‘homosexuality must be fIXED’ and it catches on, then yeah, the homosexuals will need fixing for all the confidence and anxiety and depression you fling them into by making them think they’re burdens on society. They’re just people. On an atomic level, we’re all pretty much the same, so why say people who are attracted to their own gender are any different?

If you act as though Muslims are taking over the country, what will all the racism get you? ANOTHER WAR. WHICH IS WHAT THEY CAME HERE TO AVOID AND WHICH I’M SURE NONE OF US WANT. If they’re going to come here, we might as well show them that we really are a good place to live and that they chose the right place to make a new home for themselves. All it’s affecting is tax, and really, you don’t notice much of your tax. It’s taken out of your pay automatically. No time to notice it’s gone, and most people do just fine without their extra however-many-dollars a week. Immigrants only make a couple cents of difference, so stop whining, becuase surely this argument has been had enough over the last decade that we don’t need to even think about it anymore.

There’s my input on the matter. Sue me.

Day 2: Obama Fails to Solve Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 Crisis

Has Obama done anything yet about Malaysian Airlines flight 17 — other than congratulate the terrorists??? No, of course not. Coyote Obama is too busy going down to Nigeragua bringing back thousands of gang members to be future Democrat voters.

Just so typical — no hand on the tiller.

Obama’s speech at the NCLR conference 7/25/11  

The president expressed support for DREAM Act and CIR, but did not propose a strategy.  DREAMers in attendance shouted “Yes you can!” at the president.

"Diana Martinez, 18, an undocumented student, was one of 12 arrested after refusing to leave their sit-in in the Hart Senate Office building.
An estimated 65,000 undocumented students graduate from U.S. high schools each year.”

"A group of undocumented students have been demanding the passage of the Dream Act, which would give unauthorized young immigrants a path to legal residency if they complete a college education or serve in the military." 

"Mais toi, t'es Québécoise"

Quand j’expliquais à un ami lors de notre session à l’étranger, que chaque fois qu’on me demandait d’où je venais, je devais réfléchir avant de répondre, il m’a dit “ben non, t’es québécoise!”.  

Quand je parlais de la réalité des immigrants, on a remarqué de façon désinvolte “mais ceux qui sont arrivés ici petits, comme toi, c’est plus des Québécois qu’autre chose”.

Et quand je rappelais à quelqu’un qui disait ne pas comprendre certaines mentalités des immigrants, que j’en étais une, il me disait “ouin ok, mais t’es plus Québécoise là, c’est pas pareil”.

Vous pensez pas à mal, au contraire. C’est parce que vous voulez dire que je suis incluse et intégrée, que vous ne me voyez pas moins Québécoise que vous. Vous pensez pas à mal, c’est plutôt dit parfois comme un compliment.

Je veux juste vous faire remarquer que quand vous le dites comme un compliment, vous impliquez que ne pas être québécois est une mauvaise - ou du moins moins bonne - chose.  Vous dites un peu, que je suis assez Québécoise pour que vous fassiez semblant que je suis seulement ça, pour que vous me pardonniez la partie de mon identité qui vient d’ailleurs.  Croyez le ou non, tout le monde ne rêve pas d’être blanc, d’être Occidental ou d’être Québécois.  Je suis aussi fière d’être Yougoslave que je le suis d’être Québécoise.  Quand vous agissez comme si c’était une faveur de considérer l’un comme un détail, c’est vexant.
C’est pas ça que vous voulez dire, je sais; vous pensez pas à mal.  Ça veut pas dire que c’est pas blessant quand vous ignorez de bon coeur une partie de l’identité de quelqu’un.

  • Ne décidez pas de l’identité ethnique ou culturelle d’une personne à sa place.

C’est pas parce que quelqu’un a passé un certain nombre d’années à quelque part, ou même qu’il est né à quelque part, que vous savez mieux que lui ou elle qui il/elle est.
