Breaking From The Mold, or... Possibly Spamming?

Heya folks, I just took a good hard look at the info page of this community:

"This is a space for sharing inspiring and hopeful thoughts. All quotes are acceptable, but remember this is not a religious space, it's a spiritual space. Also, please appropriately attribute all quotes.

I started this community because I wanted a space to read and share uplifting and peaceful thoughts so I make sure to reflect on positive and loving messages. I thought with the recent events, it would be good to reinforce some ideas that are not violent or angry."

So, I'm breaking from the mold here, I suppose... the info page mentions quotes, but does not limit us to quotes. And as some folks know, I like to break norms...

Well... I have some "uplifting and inspiring thoughts", which are also "positive and loving". They're posed in the form of meme's, so you can share them if you like... the first two are important to me and many other people, the third was just positive, and the fourth was a meme I had not heard, so I made one whether or not it already exists, lol.

And now... with your powers combined... one freeeekin' long meme post... First Meme:

I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.

I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.

I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.

We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.

I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.

I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.

I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.

I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.

We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.

I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me.

I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman.

I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman.

I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male.

I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.

I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that.

I am the man who died when the paramedics stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.

I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I didn’t have to always deal with society hating me.

I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind.

I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love.

Repost this if it touched something inside of you as it did I. People, regardless of race, gender, sexual preferance, ect should be always and forever treated as equals.

Second Meme:

Taking a Stand

I am the mother who told her lesbian daughter to invite her girlfriend over for dinner.

I am the father who punished his son for calling you a fag.

I am the preacher who told my congregation that love, not hate, is the definition of a true follower of God.

I am the girl who did not learn the meaning of "homosexual" until high school but never thought to question why two men might be kissing.

I am the person who argues (quite loudly and vehemently) with the bigots who insist that you do not have the right to marry or raise children.

We are the high school class who agrees, unanimously, along with our teacher, that love should be all that matters.

If you agree, repost this. Do it. You don't have to be afraid. You can handle it. You're stronger than you think.

I am making a difference. Hate will not win.

Third meme, not happy with the wording, but simple enough:

Do something nice and/or unexpected for someone next week.

(I'd really appreciate it if you repost this)

A meme I made myself, whether it has been done or not. Fourth Meme:

Everyone needs love...
Give a hug to someone that needs your love.
The world would be a better place if we did.

Repost this, and live to build a better day.


Cool... and here's a quote for those of you that like quotes:

"Have a nice day!"
-The Best Person Ever
