Sex and Second Life

This site is a true reflection of my comings and goings within the virtual platform known as Second Life, it is mostly my first person recollections of anything happening. Enjoy the read and do follow and share if you liked what you found

Being Human

As every year, I proudly joined the Stand 4 Love initiative, which stands for equal civil rights when it comes to marriage, not only in the US but world wide; marriage is after all one of the things we strive to accomplish as human beings, to be there for our spouse, to take their names, look after them and start families, something that is negated to us by simple concept and that most European countries are slowly adopting, seeing how it is a necessary step for our society.

So as every year, I took my pic, wrote something short and nice about my point of view in the topic and shared it on all social platforms I could possibly think of. As I was reading reactions, shares and comments -yes, I do take the time to read those-, my youngest son directed my attention to something that was being shared and “liked” as well and on a very delicate current topic we both feel very strongly about for a number of reasons, and that is the US government’s passing of a new law that would instantly grant citizenship to a large number of people that live in conditions that are close to slavery.

After being insulted for speaking my mind on the topic and how ironic I found it for someone trying to get equal citizen rights on something as basic as marriage, but wishing to deny a large number of the population of a country basically built by immigrants, just because they didn’t happen to be born at the right place, it was pointed out that immigration was a law and if it had been broken people needed to be punished and processed for it and that the right to access a citizen status was in now way form or fashion a human right or in violation of it.

I then proceeded to do a bit of research and here they are, as it stands today: Right to life, Every human being has the inherent right to life. This right shall be protected by law. No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his life. Freedom from torture, It is considered to be a violation of human rights, and is declared to be unacceptable by Article 5. Freedom from slavery, Freedom from slavery is an internationally recognized human right. Article 4 (many immigrants, while trying to get a chance on a citizenship, do work on some form or fashion next to slavery, where their bosses take advantage of cheap labor and where most of the time, acquiring debt for basic things as housing or health care makes it next to impossible for these people to escape these forms of modern slavery) Right to a fair trial, Everyone is entitled in full equality to a fair and public hearing by an independent and impartial tribunal (immigrants seldom do by the way) Freedom of movement, the fundamental right to travel, move and relocate wherever (yes, indeed IT IS a human right and deportation and incarceration for not holding a citizenship is in fact in direct violation of this)

The list goes on, but these ones about cover the topic at hand. We can’t be nit-picky about what freedoms we choose to support and which don’t, specially when immigrants are human beings like you and me and pretty much like you are demanding the freedom to marry the person you love, they are simply asking to live without fear of prosecution, just for existing. About half a decade ago, the Spanish government passed a law very similar to the one being proposed here, and surprise, the world didn’t end and yes, thousands of “third class citizens” were legalized.

Check out this video while thinking about all of this: You Don’t Have To Wear A Fedora, But You DO Have To Be A Decent Human Being, after all our strength lies in our diversity.

I not only stand 4 love, but for equality for us all

Life is a series of transitions. It’s not about where you are right now. It’s about which direction you’re going. Smile, and drink a frappuccino.
