The hatred of people because of their Race, and Gender, and whom their hearts desire to Love is foolish and unbelievably stupid, and detrimental to our People.
Men and Women are equal in Mind, Heart, and Spirit. The differences that the two genders have is what makes them equal, much like Darkness and Light, or the Yin-Yang symbol from Taoism. The black-or Dark-half equals Femininity and the white-or Light-half equals Masculinity.
Everyone has noticed that it is not a straight line that the two halves down the middle, but a curved one that still allows for a harmonious equality. Because no matter what anyone says or does, men and women are in fact different from one another. Men can physically do things women cannot and vice versa. Women can do things mentally that men cannot and vice versa. But that’s okay, because that just means that the two sexes balance each other out. And within everyone is a piece of the other sex, just like the Yin-Yang symbol. Or if you’re looking at it from a more Neo-Druidic/Wiccan point of view, the Anima and Animus portions of our identity.

Just because the two genders are different does not mean that they are unequal. Far from it, in fact. They need to be different from each other to truly bring balance to one another. There will always be Darkness within the Light, and a little bit of Light within the Darkness. No one sex, or race, or whomever a person decides to love is better than one another.
The color of one’s skin means absolutely nothing. It does not mean someone is better or worse, it does not mean one is doomed to live or act in a certain way or not. Skin color is the way it is because of evolutionary necessities and where people’s lived before. Coloring in and of itself is that way. We are born the way we are, and that is what makes everyone the unique individual they are. The person is what matters, their personality is what matters, their heart and soul is what matters. Their body is nothing more than a physical shell that one can use to express themselves or their beliefs. It doesn’t matter what they look like. It’s the person that matters. Always. We are all people. We are all Equal.
And a person should not be looked down upon or hated because of who they love or cherish! Unless a person forces themselves upon another or try to initiate a relationship with people/creatures who don’t truly understand what’s happening. Consensual Love is a precious, pure feeling that refuses to be held within the confines of rules or physical forms. And no person has the right to tell others who they can or cannot Love. Every person has the right to love the one who loves them back, no matter what gender, born with or chosen, without others who aren’t involved within their relationship butting into their business. The person, or group of people who are in love, are to be respected. If it doesn’t harm you then leave. It. Alone.
We are all the same where it counts. We all come from the same place, from the same Earth and Water and Fire and Air and Spirit. We are all HUMAN. We were all born here on this Earth, on this planet spinning in space and through the stars. In the end, Religion and Culture, and ‘Race’, while interesting and vital to our history, cannot change that. We are all one species, one People. We are humans and even when our Species meet new ones from the great expanse that is space, we will not meet any other exactly like us. So it’s time to get over everyone's petty differences and start acting the way we should, for everyone’s sake.
