All Humans are Created Equal

To my gender diverse readers, (that means everyone!)

You may have wondered why this blog has been silent this week? I have been busy on the streets and behind the scenes supporting Equal Rights. But never fear, Gender DiverCity does not stand silent, it stands in waiting. Waiting for what you may ask?

Waiting for each and every one of you to take a picture with yourself, be you "Cheese-head" or otherwise, proudly holding up the word human in an effort to remind the world that we are all humans. In this great nation, our founding fathers said that "we hold these truths self evident that all men are created equal" we should not have to fight for equal rights, but we do. Why? Because all humans have NOT YET been afforded the same rights and recognition under the law in this country.

California, Arizona, AND Florida have all voted (by narrow margins I might add) to add discrimination into their constitution. This is unprecedented and just plain wrong. In a time when 70% of all marriages end in divorce, why anyone would legislate against love is beyond me. We need more love in this world. No matter what your political leanings, I am sure you agree with that.

And if you haven't yet, please watch this video by news anchorman Keith Olbermann:

So let's come together, every one of every nationality, religion, or other background and stand strong as human beings. Send your picture and any information which you would like posted to (and in case your browser couldn't view that, it's humans4equality at gmail dot com)

My thanks to Carlie, Ethan, James, Sister Mischif, and Milo for the use of their pictures.
