Don't Play It Safe!

First I must say it has been a random week here in my little bloggy world

Second I have ALMOST gone a week without doing this:

13. if you havent written about sex, religion, and politics in a week youre probably playing it too safe, which means you probably fucked up on #5, in which case start a second blog and keep your big mouth shut about it this time.

So without further ado here is me blogging about sex, religion, and politics. It's kind of a weird time to do this, because there are SO MANY PEOPLE here right now, but it's weird in a good and coincidental kind of way.

1. Sex: I cannot understand why not blogging about sex is playing it safe when you have nothing whatsoever to say about sex. I'm not having any, I could be, but I'm not. I guess in a sense my not having sex is 'playing it safe' too. American society is sex-obsessed, and let me tell you, being the (seemingly) only person who is NOT obsessed with sex, is not exactly peachy. Sex is overrated. Intimacy is not, but the actual act of sex, being 'sexy' and advertising sex in the media are all grossly unimportant in comparison to the climate crisis or the children who died today in Africa. We really DO have better things to talk about and obsess about.

2. Religion: I believe in God, I am not Christian, Muslim, or Jewish. I don't believe in hell, or that Jesus was the son of God. I also believe in The Goddess. Mother Earth, Gaia, etc. I am not wiccan. I have to ask this; why can't that be accepted?

3. Politics: I don't like Bush. Finally after almost 8 years I feel like that opinion is in the vast majority. I saw Barack Obama announce his candidacy for presidency in Springfield IL on 2-10-07. He was the most inspiring person I have ever heard (there are probably more inspiring people in the world, I just haven't heard them). I truly believe he is the person that can bring America to where it wants to be for the future and for our children.

Ok, there, I have officially left myself open to hundreds of people i don't know. I am no longer 'playing it safe.'

The most interesting thing about all of this is that: I don't spend my time thinking about Sex, Religion or Politics, I don't watch the news (or the daily show), I don't even have Cable TV. I don't attend church, and the Obama announcement was the first political event I have been to in my life.
