SEXUALITY ORIENTATION: THE NEW BUZZ WORDS

“My life, my choice.”

In the United States, there has always been some group of people who are marginalized. Whether it’s concerning race, gender, or religion. In today’s society you can add another to the list and that is ones’ sexual orientation. The government has made it a concerted effort to make it illegal for people in the LGBT community to live life as they wish. And this is how movements get started and slowly but surely turn into a full on fight for rights. Now one may ask, does it matter who you choose to date and marry? It does once there is a state and federal mandate against it. But the title of the topic today is buzzwords. Which leads me to believe one thing. Are we now still in the fight or weaponizing movements?

you don’t agree you must hate

Does disagreeing with someone automatically equate to hatred for that person? Well, let’s take a close look at what is meant by hate. Something is a strong and intense dislike for something, somewhere, or someone. But if wanted to look at it from a less broad perspective, then fine. Hate is a member of the dislike community, but they are not quit family. Because I don’t like plenty of things that I don’t necessarily hate. Because dislike means it’s not for you, and hate is on the verge of eradication. I don’t like grapefruit, but it should never be wiped off the planet as a fruit because someone likes eating it. Only reason why it’s hard to understand this is because Americans have become too reactive, and never look at the context of what’s being said. Simply put, we sometimes want to have our anger no matter how rational the statement.

a knee jerk society

We hear the statement, or better yet, hear about the statement and next thing you know, trouble for the person. We don’t want to hear what was really said. Because now we have to change out minds and admit we were wrong. So it’s better to be mad at someone, even when they have said nothing. And in America at the moment, you better say you agree in respect to the LGBT community. It better be positive and right down the middle. But is that what we really want? Do we want people to say they agree even when they don’t? Do we want fake supporters of the community, or a bunch of compliant people? Because the truth of how people feel always comes out. Then we are shocked to hear how people really feel.

FUTURE OF OUR INSTITUTIONS: WHAT WILL COME OF THEM

“What will be in them in the future?”


a house of history

As an employee of a museum, I often walk around and think to myself, “What will this museum hold in the year 2100?” What about 2200, if it’s still around? And the crazy thing about history is that the Atari and Nintendo will be in the museums in the year 2200. That is shocking that something like our video games could be housed in the museums of the future because they are such a major aspect of the cultural layout of America. Then there is the idea that these museums might not even be in existence in the future. Well, in existence like the way we know them as today. Museums could be something totally different so much so that they could be fun or boring.

what’s of the old old world

As you visit the museums today, ¬†what will happen to the art that is there now, that must be moved aside for the new material? Some may be housed in the basements but others could be shipped to other museums around the world. I don’t see the art being destroyed, we just may never see it again. Museums have been a part of our lives for centuries, if not a few thousand years. And there are still artifacts that are still being uncovered in the world today. But there will come a time where material must be moved for the new found items. Only a chosen few can stand around and not be removed. The Egyptian and Roman culture is and will be standing in museums for hundreds of more years. But items like paintings, especially the less popular ones will be hidden away beneath the ground in basements wrapped and preserved.

expansion would help a lot

In order to maintain some of these museums, we must not only visit them more, but also we have to expand them. The expansion would mean a lot for the museum as well. More and more land is being preserved so people have to figure out ways to expand, but not to overstep the boundary of going into to a preserved environment
