I have a friend who works in one of Australia's top uni, the student union is run be gays/Lezos.. they have a party on campus annually, this involves multiple women with glad wrap lining up to fist fark one Sheila..guys giving head to each other openly, everyone on drugs and acting like lunatics.. this is Australia's "best and brightest"

I'm not saying these people should be persecuted, they are sick and beyond help. But taking this to the next level by promoting it.. eg gay propaganda on tv, radio, news articles, adoption and the schooling system is absolutely mind boggling.. this will only cause more social ills and destruction by confusing the crap out of kids from the get go.. kids should be given a chance to have a normal upbringing void of sexual agendas and commercialisation.

This process has nothing to do with equality or love. The only real love we are capable of is that for our children.. And as the west is willing to destroy them.

It is proven that mentally ill people are more likely to engage in deviate behaviour, this moral decline will lead to the downfall of liberal societies like ours..What is natural will always prevail, that is a million year fact.

And I say people who support this promotion in any form are simply not capable of any love. What kind of normal loving parent would want to expose their children to this?

Considering what you had said in your first two paragraphs, your post was the moral decline in this thread. Think about it. Some of our guest visitors here are young Macedonians, must they be exposed to such detail?

Every generation creates an alternative environment for the next generation, within each environment the generation rebels. After such a moral decline, won’t the next generation rise up and demand to know why they live with such conditions, why there is no structure? There is also the possibility that the progressives may create the perfect environment in which a form of a traditional extremist political movement will develop transcending the borders of all nations and changing the face of the world forever. We cannot predict the future, so why make such assumptions.

You also treated homosexuality in the present and antiquity as separate things, with the general implication being that just because people didn't use the same terminology we do now or express sexuality in the same manner that homosexuality as we know it now is a new phenomenon simply because of societal differences. Differences in sexual expression, terminology or lack thereof have no bearing on the existence of homosexuality.

Heaven forbid non-straight couples be allowed to exist in media or in public spaces like everyone else. Most kids find all those heterosexual relationships shoehorned into shows and movies to be boring and a waste of time. Most of them are terribly written and are only in a relationship because of some arbitrary rule that major female characters largely exist to be love interests to a male protagonist. The government doesn't have much say in those things. People are simply following a demand for better representation.

Your notion of an artificial gay culture is entirely untrue. People are just more aware of their existence and while many still risk assault just for existing, the increased acceptance has made it safer for them to express themselves and be known. They had communities long before people took notice of them and those communities are just as genuine as anyone else's.

You mean like the false standard of intolerance towards the mere mention of gay people existing? There are repercussions to discrimination. By this reasoning people should be allowed to spout racial slurs and demand the reinstatement of slavery.

Do you believe that homosexuals living in a fear for centuries justifies why heterosexuals should fear expressing themselves encase of loss of job, freedom of speech has been trampled upon. That is not equality.
Would you be saying the same thing if they were talking about the antisemitism or general racism going on in the US right now? And how can you be sure you're reading the body language correctly? Misinterpretations happen a lot with stuff like that.

He was too busy fantasizing about young boys and posing for that one portrait. You're assuming someone like him gave a damn about actual history despite clinging to a romanticized narrative of ancient Greece. As a pedophile, consensual relationships between adults wouldn't matter to him much.

As you had said “two men of one soul”, they were not attracted to each other because of their gender, they believed they had a bond that surpassed the body.
You're just nitpicking. One could say no one was heterosexual because it can't be accurately verified that they actually cared about their relationships, and yet we take them at face value. I've already established that there's plenty of evidence that they had a romantic and sexual relationship, so that just leaves whether or not you believe Aexander married Roxana out of love, as it's specifically him that's considered bisexual. If you require that they be attracted to each other and a woman at the same time, then you're confusing bisexuality with polyamory. They're not mutually exclusive but they're separate things.

Two people of one soul is basically how they described romantic relationships. One of the common ways in which same sex relationships that couldn't be fully omitted were hidden was to pass them off as close friends instead of lovers, much like what you're doing here.

Your argument here doesn't even make sense and fails in multiple ways:

1. The paint is the metaphor for marriage, not the building. The building represents the couple, which is why the analogy only works with personal property.

2. Religion predates the pyramid and Christianity.

3. In your version, Christianity would exist at the point where the pyramids are being painted, defeating your stated reasoning behind using the pyramids in your analogy.

4. Is using Christianity to define marriage not using religion to twist the example? Also multiple religions exist.

5. Discriminating against same sex couples goes against the basic Christian tenet of "do unto others as you would like others to do unto you". Don't deny rights to others if you want them to be respected for you.

6. If no one has a right to decide what you and your partner do in your relationship then why do you claim to have a right to what other people do in their relationship by denying them the right to marry?

I'm quite frankly beyond caring about the words of someone accusing me of being a criminal over explaining the problems in denying same sex marriage or even refusing to acknowledge the existence of same sex couples as normal people who have every right to exist. Such blatant ad hominem arguments on such an absurd scale pretty much kill your credibility.

I specifically pointed out that the Australian law didn't originally exclude same sex relationships and that allowing same sex marriage would effectively re-include what was already feasible within previous iterations of the law. Adding back something that was previously removed doesn't necessarily mean a backwards progression, the same way adding something that wasn't there doesn' necessarily mean a forward one. Context is important. Alcohol was allowed in the US before prohibition. Does that make undoing prohibition pushing for an outdated view?

Now, specifically regarding that encyclopedia entry, if you're using it to say they didn't allow same sex marriages in 1968, that's already common knowledge. The Mccarthy era had recently ended and it was the tail end of the civil rights movement, when black people were still struggling for basic human rights. Women didn't gain the right to vote in Switzerland until 1971. Human rights issues are still an ongoing problem all over the world. So then why would a lapse in such rights when people first started improving those issues be a valid argument against allowing same sex couples to have those rights now?

Quote:
The SSC get to continue their relationship. It would be more socially acceptable then SSC that breed hate against the opposite gender which promotes inequality, which is unhealthy for society.
They literally just want the same marriage rights heterosexual couples already have. How the hell does that oppress anyone?

I find it strange that you oppose same sex marriage while suggesting polygamous ones as an alternative. Most people who dislike one dislike the other. The problem with that is that polygamous relationships don't magically work for everyone who tries them and you can't really force people to take on an additional partner they don't really want just to satisfy your need for at least one man and woman per relationship.

Your arguments are entirely fallacious and you even seem to be trying to insult me with an inaccurate assumption on my sexuality. And for the record, the basic definition of liberal is simply open-mindedness and willingness to change when change is needed. A stagnant society is unable to adapt to changing circumstances and will be doomed to failure. While keeping functional systems is sensible, you have to be ready to acknowledge when things need to change.

Pelagonija, don't you think people deserve to actually understand how sex works and how to avoid STDs and unwanted pregnancies by the time they're physically capable of those things? If it was really about supposed agendas regarding such things then media wouldn't be so filled to the brim with men and women kissing each other, innuendos and other such things. People only seem to take issue when there's even the vaguest possibility that it was mentioned that same sex couples exist. Doesn't that double standard sound awfully familiar to you? And on top of that and your earlier sexism you add your predictably poor views on mental illness. Given that mental illness includes depression, PTSD, autism and ADHD, chances are you've met several people with one or more people with such conditions and didn't notice the difference. And with that last line you're just straight up trying to dehumanize anyone who doesn't fit your narrow view of acceptable means of existing within society at this point.

Please, enough already. Give it a rest guys. I can's see what the point is in trying to debate this messed up topic still. The LGBTQIAPD community got what they wanted. It's official - the country is behind them all the way. Congratulations and good luck to them. I hope they find the happiness they've been so desperately seeking by having their unions recognised with a state sanctioned marriage. Hopefully, they can now go on to live happily ever after and I never have to hear about this stupid topic again.

Oscars Announce New Inclusion Requirements for Best Picture Eligibility



The diversity and inclusion initiative has been a heavy focus for the Oscars the past few years, shown by the expansive membership initiative. As part of the Academy Aperture 2025 initiative, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Tuesday new representation and inclusion standards in order to be eligible in the best picture category.

For the 94th and 95th Oscars ceremonies, scheduled for 2022 and 2023, a film will submit a confidential Academy Inclusion Standards form to be considered for best picture. Beginning in 2024, for the 96th Oscars, a film submitting for best picture will need to meet the inclusion thresholds by meeting two of the four standards.

All other Academy categories will keep their current eligibility requirements. For categories such as animated feature, documentary feature and international feature, that submit for best picture consideration, they will be addressed separately.


For a number of years, the Academy has struggled to nominate films that are diverse in its cast, directors, and technical craftspeople. In 2016, after they failed to nominate any person of color among their 20 acting nominees, Cheryl Boone Isaacs, who was Academy President at the time, took historic action by committing to doubling the number of women and diverse members by 2020, which they have achieved.

Academy President David Rubin and Academy CEO Dawn Hudson said in a joint statement, “The aperture must widen to reflect our diverse global population in both the creation of motion pictures and in the audiences who connect with them. The Academy is committed to playing a vital role in helping make this a reality.” They continued, “the Academy is committed to playing a vital role in helping make this a reality.”
