I Dr leslie tay wife sexual dysfunction the best way to deal with the anti-gay crowd is to ignore them. Don't give them an audience. Once they feel they are talking to the wall, they'll stop. Why are Christians so afraid of gays?
Not that I want to be biased against christians but they seem to be the only religion actively organizing Dr leslie tay wife sexual dysfunction and stuff. Do correct me if I'm wrong as this is from my own personal point of view.
There are gay churches around the world, and in Singapore too. Logging on to facebook after a long time I was honestly kind of disappointex to see people friends, ex-teachers on my fb feed citing anti-gay views. Everyone can have their own opinion, but it's just off putting to see those comments. I know how you feel.
I also met a friend who's a member of you-know-which-church-I'm-talking-about and the things he shares on Facebook just make me roll my eyes. It's one thing to have an opinion, but it's another thing to hold an opinion blindly AND not know how to defend it when it's being questioned. So questioning I did, engaging him in a discussion I did, but all he did was just leave the discussion to all his other friends.
On another occasion, he shared an extremely misguided article with the point "You say we are forcing our views on LGBT people, what about this? I was able to find ample evidence that proved that the article merely sensationalized a usual gay pride parade as a two-million strong "God-hating" gay parade.
Commented on the evidence, then suddenly the whole post was gone LOL. I respect different views, but I cannot respect unsubstantiated views.
If you're not going to be able to defend your opinion, then it's time you started studying what your opinion really means and how it could be quite dumb. Some people are really delusional when it comes to things like this. Yeah, but it just saddens me to see friends or acquaintances who were free-thinkers at first suddenly become so religious AND at the same time believe in anything that they're probably being taught in their places of worship I was a Christian once in my life and I know how it feels to suddenly adopt a faith in life, except for me I eventually fell out of it what they like to call "backsliding".
It is nice to be able to find something that gives you direction in life, and because of that people might tend to blindly believe in things that would in Dr leslie tay wife sexual dysfunction way strengthen their faith. But it just me off how some just lose all logic and sense while being in the thick of things. Recently had a friend who told me he joined a church originating from Korea called Church of God situated in Tai Seng.
Most of the word online calls the church a "cult"; it believes in God the Father and God the Mother. It worried me for a while, but he told me he was so happy that he found that church and was convinced by the evidence he was presented to justify the church's belief. He was so truly happy he found such a purpose in life that he made me promise that if I would ever return to Christianity, I must visit his church before anywhere else.
As much as I feel like I should respect my friend's beliefs, it's times like this that make me feel, Should I speak up? This fits the perfect scenario of "ignorance is bliss". It makes sense that they want to share what worked for them with the ones that they care, but it kinda saddens me!
IDK though, i feel bad when I judge, like who am I to do that? Understanding that people can have different opinions doesn't mean I agree or have to accept it. I Dr leslie tay wife sexual dysfunction see any references to these posts, and "Dr leslie tay wife sexual dysfunction" read his blog and havent seen them. To be fair, he didn't post any of those on his food blog, only on his facebook. Hmm, still, if he posts it anywhere, even if it wasnt on his blog, I wouldnt want to read the work of a bigot.
I have read my fair share of bigotted words of history, enough to know that I dont believe I need to read any more. And if I do read them, it'll just be to sit there and go "Man, how glad I am that some parts of this world have changed for the better". I'm not going to bother debunking or even analysing her 'arguments' because I'm already turned off by the strawmans and the atrocious writing style.
She's repeating tired cliches against same sex marriage to emphasize the point that they're just that though. For whatever you think of Xiaxue or her writing, at least she's tolerant enough to support same sex marriage.
That's something I can certainly appreciate.
Are there many people who are actively intolerant? Very seldom do I meet someone who is outright against it. Most people seem indifferent.
Even the person she is saying is anti-gay marriage posted something regarding how they must accept gay marriage. Actually, the person she referenced regular posts things that are rather anti-gay. This was mentioned in the post. This blogger is no better than BuzzFeed, Gawker, etc. That has been how XX operates, but that doesn't mean there's no validity to her post. I frequently see many of the cliched arguments against same sex marriage that she debunks, and while her writing may not be to your liking, her rebuttals do contain some degree of cogency.
It's just a little uppity to dismiss the post entirely just because certain part are a little sensationalist. This isn't a true comparison. If asking would I prefer a crack-addicted single mother over two wealthy and well-adjusted gay men, I'd have to be really messed up to not believe the latter is better for the child.
However, what if all things
Dr leslie tay wife sexual dysfunction equal. No difference between the gay couple or the straight couple. Same occupation, same income, etc. Which would be chosen? The argument against allowing same sex couples to adopt that it will have an adverse effect on children. In the first paragraph alone, she links to sources that debunks that claim.
I agree that her argument makes a few sweeping assumptions, but it raises a good point though. We don't screen straight couples for competency at raising a child before allowing them to have one, and since same-sex couples are held to a much higher standard and screened thoroughly before being allowed to adopt children, what exactly is the opposition to same sex couples adopting based on?
The last part of your argument also isn't a true comparison, because we live in the reality where more kids are given up for adoption than there are couples willing to adopt. Personally, I'd rather they find a good home that wants and is able to provide for their needs than remain orphaned, even if that home doesn't fit your view of what a family nucleus should be.
I believe if we can screen them properly and it works we would do that. But how difficult is it for people to lie and people can change their minds, so this is actually not a good argument to make.
How many couples would go through the laborious process of adoption just to lie about wanting a child? There are also very stringent screening measures when it comes to adoption, so it'd be incredibly hard to lie about one's ability to physically raise a child. She blows everything out of proportion. Makes for easy reading and drama for the kind of people who follow her.
Just like how sex sells, she's feeding the ignorant for easy money. Never heard of her until I moved to Singapore. And I've always pronounced her name as "sia swear " I still do though While we both agree on this issue except for statements like 'the gays', if we stop talking about her she will go away.
The first type is the Anti-gay crowd, second is the "Dr leslie tay wife sexual dysfunction" crowd and the third are those who change their fb profile to the rainbow filter and has no idea what Dr leslie tay wife sexual dysfunction is supposed to mean.
Lush DJ Rozz also posted something with a screenshot of what he shared. Anyway I didn't read the article all the way cos its the same old arguments with the same old counter arguments. From my own facebook feed, a famous food blogger who is also a doctor posted numerous anti-gay marriage articles, some of which are truly appalling.
