Meanwhile in Russia….
by a Blogger Who Experiences Same Sex Attraction
I am a person who has been
permitted same-sex attractions (the world would like to label me as
“gay”). It seems that I am expected to support the anti-Russian Olympic
campaigns, which are spreading across the western world in a viral fashion.
Even Google had gotten into the mix on opening day and the first image
millions of youth saw when they fired up their browser was an image aimed at
affirming not just ”human rights” but also a particular type
of identity. The rainbow symbolism today means far more than simply
being honest with ourselves about the existence of our sexual attractions and
or inclinations, for those have been packaged as one with the notion of
how we should self-identify and define ourselves. That is, the rainbow
symbolism in this context reinforces a particular way of
anchoring our self-concept – which extends far beyond the matter of simply
being honest with ourselves about the existence of any particular type of
sexual attraction and or inclination that we might experience.
For this reason, if I want to be honest with myself and how I understand the world, I must oppose the ideology represented by the rainbow symbolism (in this context). I must oppose all who promote this rainbow ideology, albeit I hope to do so in an invitational manner such that people might see beyond the surface of this topic. I realize that I will likely be condemned for sharing my voice, even though I am the one giving the invitation to grow. Many people will not want my voice to be heard, and I will likely be discredited and labeled a hateful bigot. If that is not upside-down, I don’t know what is. However, to those who are open to considering what I have to say (even if you disagree), I sincerely thank you for your openness. Also I wish to be very clear that my voice is not directed to condemn any individual person, but rather is directed towards elevating the conversation on this topic by examining the fruits of this particular collective movement.
