Equal Rights Stamp by StarlightCorvina Equal Rights Stamp by StarlightCorvina
So, I decided to make a stamp, and I wanted to make one that brings attention to something I feel strongly about. I was going to make a HRC stamp, but I was very disappointed by some of the Human Rights Campaign's recent decisions regarding transgendered people.

I am still very supportive of their efforts for gay/bi/lesbian rights, but transgenered people, as well as intersexed people, are human, too. Human rights mean ALL people, not just the people it's easiest to lobby for. I may not be transgendered myself (I am a lesbian, though) but that doesn't stop me from knowing that a transgendered person is no different from you or me: we all bleed the same, we laugh the same, we cry the same, we love the same.

When are people going to learn that no matter what differences we have on the outside, it's what's under the skin and in the heart that counts?

I agree wholeheartedly with this stamp. I'm a lesbian with a pansexual girlfriend and a friend that is still questioning.

Its a fact. Having equal rights for all (No matter if you're LGBTQ, Male, Female, Unisex, a person of color, different faiths, or whatever) is something we all demand for. In the end, we're all human anyways.

I don't support homosexuality or anything like that, but I agree. Nobody should be bashed because of how they feel or how they are. Heck, nobody should be bashed for anything.

What's wrong with homosexuality that you don't support? Just curious.

I think it's a mockery of God. It's like saying, "I'm going to enjoy the pleasure of sex, but I won't reproduce,". It's a Christian thing.

Also, just a side note, it seems more logical to not give birth to a new child when there are children in orphanages who are probably just going to end up out on the streets when they turn 18 anyway. I feel like it's more important to give and already living child a home rather than bring a new one into the world. That's just me though :P

Well, what if you're infertile? Does that mean you're not allowed to have sex? You can't help being infertile, right? And you can't help homosexuality. I see your point, but I think you're looking at it wrong.

Oh, I'm aware gays didn't choose to be that way. I just don't want people glorifying homosexuality is all.

True. It's not in any way superior to heterosexuality, but in most places it's still not equal. :/ Transgender people still can't use their identified bathrooms and such, and gays can't get married in a lot of places...

Let's not forget this verbatim from the US pledge

"with liberty and justice for ALL."

With problem like this in US this is why I don't say the pledge, just stand up and remove my hat.

I am straight and a Christian, but I am adding this to my journal as I truly believe that everyone has rights and has choices. God loves everyone...no matter what :)
I don't frown upon anyone for who they are, nor judge them. I don't want people judging me...who are they to judge and who am I to judge?

This is an awesome stamp!

Got to love the message.
THe age-old foundation this country was built on:'equality'. First, it was really 'all Caucasian males are equal' then the same, including African-Americans...then 'they' realized, 'hey, women aren't stupid and useless! And they're like, half of the population! Why not include them?!" So they did. Now, all STRAIGHT people are equal--what a victory. Right? Sooner or later, we'll come to our senses and realize that EVERYBODY is equal.. Lesbians, bisexuals, homosexuals, transsexuals, transgenders, objectumsexuals, (I have no idea how to spell that!!) and everybody else! Of every race, religion, orientation, social status...
We are pigs. We are stupid. We are learning.. We the same. WE ARE HUMAN.

...Sorry... But did you think you were the only one who could make a speech? Lol.

*sniff* Beautiful speech... :cries:

I am an FTM transsexual (but still straight), so I really reacted to this. In a good way.

Bad thing is, I have the most homophobic parents anyone will meet. They resent my transsexuality, and cheer whenever they win so-called "victories" over gay marriage (i.e. the passage of amendment 2 in Florida).

One time, when I attended a Gay-Straight Alliance meeting at my school, they really gave me hell. I called them homophobic, and you know what they said? "We're not homophobic. We just think that they (gays) are immoral, abnormal, and disgusting." They also spoke the same way of the Gay-Straight Alliance itself, too, calling it an "immoral organization".

Sorry about that... ^^;

Anyway, I plan to get a subscription soon, so I'll definitely use this if I do! Great job!! :D :+favlove:

I strongly agree with this stamp.

I don't understand what makes them think that transgendered are any less human.
