i don't believe in opting out. i believe the default answer should be no unless you specifically say yes.

it's about respecting boundaries...
the lack of such respect is why some people talk about society in terms of it being a culture of rape. but not the yes-people, they hate it when you do that, when you say no.

i reject atheism on the same grounds that i reject religion: it just doesn't work for me.

i reject the notion that some thoughts and feelings are bad. i think that is just some whacked out control trip, to make us feel like there's something wrong with us that we need them (some religion or guru or self-help expert or doctor or head shrinker) to fix for us.

i reject the notions that we should ever accept what causes us pain and that pain makes us stronger or better somehow.

and i reject the notion that anybody knows what is best/good for anyone but themselves.

on earth day and every other day, i do believe that all land is sacred and divine. i believe that when you cause harm to the planet, you are hurting all of us, and this pain is what tells us something is wrong. to ignore or deny it only enables the abuse to continue.
