Perhaps I am really an old overweight jewish black woman who is discreetly gay in the military.

 

I am not a passionate person.  There are very few things that I have a strong enough feeling about to ever mount a protest.  I have some thoughts about why that is, but we’ll save that for another day, and
probably a protected post. I am actually quite jealous of people who have that kind of commitment to a cause.  I feel the same way about people who have a religion and can just turn their lives over to it.  But, I digress.

Lately I find myself getting angrier and angrier when I read the accounts of all the people in the world who, well lets be honest, are wrong.  Bias is wrong.  Judging an entire subset of the population to deserve less respect and decency from you based solely on a preconceived notion without knowing the person, is wrong.  Period.  There are no exceptions.  There are no excuses.  The issue of the week that has brought this to the forefront of my tiny little mind is the debate over whether to discuss whether we should remove the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy in the military.  The reason for not discussing this is almost always because they want to investigate what it will do to the morale of our Armed Forces.  This is not right, or just, or moral.

If you believe judging someone based on their gender preference is wrong, then it doesn’t matter what it will do to the morale. The minute you believe that it is unjust, then you must no longer condone the behavior of those who act on this bias.

Let’s not give women the vote until we decide how big of an effect it will have on the sitting government.  Well, it will have the effect of adding some diversity and equality to the government.  Let’s not give the entire black race the rights  to use our bathrooms until we decide what effect it will have on our…on our what?  I can’t even think of a good analogy here because it’s just so perverse.

I don’t understand how people who are intelligent and seem so generally reasonable can choose which morality is appropriate.  You either believe that all people are created equal and act as such, or you don’t, and just go ahead and say it out loud.
