That honestly sounds like a catch-22 argument. Agree with me or youíre a government lackey! From that is removed all points of the argument being made and reduced to a simplistic, choice of cake or death. I am not saying that homosexuals have no basic human right to private consensual sex. I am saying that private consensual sex is not a basic human right at all. None of us have that right promised to us by the mere fact of us being part of this species.
Well, really, there are no rights whatsoever that are promised to us by the mere fact of being part of the species. This, again, has been proven repeatedly throughout history. If someone can take away our "rights," and get away with it, they often do.
However, my opinion is that there ARE basic human rights, which sometimes get taken away by those who have the power to do so. One of them is as I have already outlined regarding sex.
It's my opinion that governments are NOT the ones that endow humans with our basic rights. So you can state that however you like. But at the end of the day, it's my RIGHT to feel that someone who tries to teach me that governments bestow human rights, is someone who does not understand human rights at all.
In fact, history shows that it's most often governments themselves which take away
human rights. Simply by virtue of the fact that they have the power to do so. And then people must fight to restore their human rights, and civil wars begin. In the good cases... in the rest of cases, the governments continue with their violation of human rights fairly indiscriminately.
So if someone wants to teach me about human rights, it's my opinion that if they teach me that human rights are bestowed by any document or government, they do not understand the concept.
Now, nowhere in there did I say they are a government patsy. I just said that I don't believe they really understand the true concept of Human Rights.
Because there's no document giving people the basic human right to have privacy and have sexual relations with other adults in whatever consensual manner they decide... doesn't mean that's not a basic human right. That just means that it's a basic human right that governments like to take away, IMO.
The track record of governments wanting to control people's sexual lives is pretty clearly established. Pretty much all of them try to do it. This, however, does NOT make it right. They ARE taking away a basic human right, and they are doing so only because they have the power to do so.
If the government came to you and told you who you were going to reproduce with and have sex with, and in what position you could do it, you would be incensed. Rightfully so. Anyone would... yet when it's homosexuals, people suddenly don't understand WHY they are incensed by it.
I would boycott the woman as well. She clearly doesn't understand the basic concept of human rights, or she would not be lobbying to make/keep laws curtailing one of them!
