Yesterday the subject of Identity Pride came up, more specifically Gay or LGBT Pride, which got me to think about an interesting Question which I’ve kind of touched on briefly before and further strengthened by this election, BLM and planned Parenthood and the cultural role democrats and republicans have.
I obviously support gay marriage and LGBTQQIA equality and I am proud to be an extension of that community. However wether or not we believe in any higher power the entire concept of pride is a problematic one for the sheer reason we are enmeshing or have a predisposition to enmesh ourselves in an action, group or practice as an identity within it of itself and not human beings with unique qualities, imagination and creativity who experience a form of love that only until recently has been accepted.
The important question is when we express “LGBTQQIA Pride” what is it that we are individually expressing pride over, which is a very individual question that could be both deeply beautiful or deeply problematic and not over the LGBTQQIA Part.
To preface For me, the aspect of “LGBTQQIA Pride” is to be proud to express unconditional love, and more specifically the awakening and catalyst to discovering unconditional love may be found, expressed and discovered by someone of the same gender. Thus therefore to celebrate such love and bonds with other who honor respect and celebrate such bonds and therefore unions with similar archetypal social challenges￼ and pride in the human empowerment to overcome and thrive over such Challenges is a unifying celebration of freedom to express love and empowerment.
However any actions two consenting adults partake in thereafter as an expression of that love is what so much of this human experience is about and its undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and arguably pleasurable parts of being human but has this become the centerpiece of what LGBTQQIA Pride is about, or has it always been or is it all?
Until the point of falling in love, wether it works out or not, what it is it that one actually comes out about beyond the proclamation of sexual tendencies or impulse? This is not at all sex shaming, or the intention to antagonize or shame sex but rather to simply pose the question about what it is we are proclaiming. Simply put, there is usually no general celebration of anyone’s sexual impulses because that would be odd. I am also all in favor of Gay pride and everything that comes within because I believe in peoples individual freedom of expression as a general conductor of self discovery and gamut of variant experiences via free will. I also understand much of the need to come out is because of the monumental anticipation and weight as to how it will be received because of the stigma and charge is has come with all this time and poses us to question unconditional love before many other people that maybe never truly will, in that sense if you are in any way spiritual its kind of a blessing because we begin to ask the right questions and thus predisposed to awakening much earlier...
However does “Gay Pride” help the LGBTQQIA Individuals? Most who are LGBT knew very young or early on wether it be puppy love or a crush or whatever. However that love, or attraction or crush usually didn’t come with rainbows, go go dancers and hyper sexualization of any kind. In the same respect the gender typecasting of creativity, makeup, gender specific clothing is man made, makeup knows or has no gender thus then the next question is imminent, when it comes to transgender or gender non Binary in any way, what is one actually rejecting? Social constructs of gender identity and expression or their genitalia? Because the prior is not indicative of a problem within its indicative of a problem and programming of a world without and to conform to it is to bend to man made archaic rules.
Most will say oftentimes LGBTQQIA relationships are not often the healthiest (nor are most straight ones) However is it possible that without the cultural aspect of what it is to be LGBT, LGBTQQIA people may be predisposed to having healthier relationships by the sheer nature of transcending cultural conformity and really forge a path to know thyself early on and its actually the culture of “Gay Pride” that could be a problematic one keeping us distracted by a toxic and very distracting all consuming, fun and pleasurable loop in the exchange for our true happiness? I also believe because of our attunement and embrace of the inner masculine and feminine side balance we may have a higher predisposition to Christ Consciousness because of the cultural conformity Transcendence and predisposition to that attunement should we choose to raise that kundalini charge rather that unload that energy upon such choice with no right or wrong answer by nature of the free will journey to rememberance.
How many young LGBT people aspired to be bodybuilders and shade queens? How many had racial preferences? Are we celebrating the freedom to express same Love or are we celebrating gay sex? Have they become enmeshed beyond discernment? Have we been suppressed from a predisposed empowerment and inner balance superpower by reducing ourselves to a primarily sexually driven identity?
Have we enmeshed Love, Trauma Bonds, Attachments, Lust, Bonding, embrace and sex?
Does this benefit the life, liberty and pursuit of happiness of LGBTQQIA Individuals?
Finally, is Pride even about celebrating LGBTQQIA People or equality at all or the commercialized exploitation of them?
It seems if it were to be we would focus more on celebrating the work of LGBT people like Tim Cook, Marc Jacobs, Todrick Hall, Alyssa Edwards, RuPaul Harvey Milk etc. Not so much penis balloons, and there is nothing wrong with penis balloons but maybe let's just call it what it is; a commercialized party with LGBT people as the excuse.
