#055: Equal Rights

[F.U.C.K. is an e-zine that I started on January 24, 1993 and ended on January 24, 2000. One concept is that articles should be timeless if possible, so they were not released with dates. As such, the date on this blog is not exact but I will try to use a date as close as possible.]

All (wo)men are created equal! Go ahead and say it! Go ahead and wipe out that gender gap. Lets make it so men and women are 100% equal so we can shut some of these bitches up.

I think I see it almost twice a week now. Somewhere, in some area of the country, some woman is trying to press on in the endless battle to guarantee equal rights. Long ago it was voting, now it everything else from congress to the fucking boy scouts.

Our government, and any other position of power has long been dominated by men. Seldom do you see a woman in charge and that just makes a few women mad. Hundreds of organizations close their doors to females based on tradition.

Government. What is the basis of our system? Voting. You vote to see who is in charge. The majority of the people win and put who they want on the little throne of power. Now think about it. It is close to a 50/50 split population wise, when it comes to male/female. So if some lady wants to run for some office, and she runs against a male opponent, and the guy wins, who is to blame? All the men for being narrow minded? Or is it all the women who didn’t get off their fat asses and go to the voting booths?

Lets take one for example. The Boy Scouts. I think the name alone would tell you who belongs and who doesn’t. Can’t really bitch because there is a Girl Scout organization but that just isn’t good enough. Back a few years, some bitch took the Boy Scouts of America(BSA) to court because she wasn’t allowed to join a troop. A big legal battle took place, and honestly, I don’t know how it ended up. I do know it probably got shot down, and the BSA didn’t have to allow her in, or at least that is what should have happened. Now think a minute. What would be said if some boy wanted to join the Girl Scouts? First, he would be turned down. Second, if he tried to take it to court, it wouldn’t even make it because we all know he is just some little pervert trying to get into the girl’s pants. Nope! Don’t say it it different. We all know that is exactly what is going through his mind, but that kind of thought NEVER crossed the girl’s mind.

Last thing. Why don’t you ever see any of these ladies pushing for a change in the draft? If some war breaks out, and the U.S. decides to re-instate the draft, why is it that only men get drafted?

All men are created equal! Once again, this time lets do away with any racial barriers we have. No matter what skin color, there will be no discrimination!

Hmmm. What is wrong with this picture? First, I am totally against the KKK and other white supremacy groups, but look around. There ARE black supremacy groups, maybe they don’t get the TV and news coverage as the white groups, but they are still out there.

NAACP. National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. Great group to help out the ‘colored’ people so that they aren’t overlooked. Wait. Ever heard of the NAAWP? Yeah, that is the group that helps out White People. Huh? Never heard of it? Actually they exist, but they get a lot of shit. Why though? Same damn thing, just one little letter difference in the acronym.

How ’bout the United Negro College Fund. To help those poor but smart black students get through college. Now what if I applied for a United Caucasian College Fund. I think several people would jump on my case, a few groups take me to court, etc. Saying that isn’t fair, or that it discriminates.

I think it is about time we cut this shit about discrimination. Yes it happens. White people discriminate against black. BUT, the same shit happens from black to white. Reverse discrimination is what it is called by many.

All people are created equal. Lets not discriminate based on sexual preference! If you are gay, good for you! Stand up and cheer and watch as no one beats you down for saying so!

I have no problem with gay people. As long as they don’t approach me, no prob. BUT, lets take the most popular example of discrimination against gays. ‘Amendment 2’ in Colorado. You may have heard about it since it was on all the news programs for several weeks. According to the news the amendment stated that gay people would not be discriminated and that doing so would get you into deep shit or something like that.

Wait a sec. Since I kinda live here, and I kinda voted on it, I have to clear up something. The amendment did NOT say that at all. The amendment was set up to provide rights ABOVE and BEYOND what is provided for everyone else. So basically gay people would be given more rights than heterosexuals. Hmm. I voted no on it, and I would do it again in a second. Sure, let them have equal rights, but to hell with them getting more than I do. Just isn’t fair really.

I am not about to go into religious discrimination. That will no doubt be in another file down the road by someone else.

Anyway, I think you get the point, and if not then give up and go shoot yourself or something.
