ELIANA BENADOR: DAMN FACEBOOK
“The sexiest organ is the brain.”
By Eliana Benador
At the beginning of this week, a great American Dame passed away. Her obituary could read: “Shirley Temple took with her America’s last era of innocence and sweetness.”
Sex in her time was almost a taboo and while that may sound like an oppressive term, it also meant something mysterious and beautiful, reduced to the intimacy of a couple’s bedroom.
Obvious and gross mention of nakedness was avoided and treated under the veils of decorum and modesty.
But, what is it to be sexy? Is it to be naked? Is it to go around showing your private parts in the public, hidden discrete yet public realm of the internet -all the while knowing NSA may be snooping and/or keeping your records for eternity and for their perusal whenever they will feel like using them?
Does anyone need to be naked to be sexy? No. Sexiness is an intrinsic chemistry that may appeal to some and not to others. No need to be naked to be perceived and liked by others.
And, just as Christians were preparing themselves to celebrate their sweet holiday of Love, there came Facebook news, brutally crushing on the romance of Saint Valentine’s Day:
As of yesterday, Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook has become the Public Relations and Marketing firm par excellence for the Advancement of Sodomization Gomorrahzation of the entire world -and, of course, it had to begin with the United States.
It means that from now on, Facebook is giving an extraordinary attention to sex.
Facebook has 1.23 billion active monthly users worldwide and has announced that they will continue to allow them to keep their gender identity private if they so choose.
Some estimates show there are at least 700,000 individuals in the United States who identify as transgender, an umbrella term that includes people who live as a gender different from the one assigned to them at birth.
The move by Facebook represents a basic form of recognition of the nation’s growing transgender-rights movement, which has been spurred by veteran activists and young people who identify as transgender at younger ages. The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) last year found that 10 percent of the 10,000 lesbian, gay, bisexual transgender youths it surveyed used “other” or wrote in their own gender terms.
The change to the gender-selection option is seen as a major step toward acceptance for people who don’t self-identify as male or female, but the high-profile development seemed senseless to those who believe in two genders, no more.
“Of course Facebook is entitled to manage its wildly popular site as it sees fit, but here is the bottom line: It’s impossible to deny the biological reality that humanity is divided into two halves: male and female,” said Jeff Johnston, an issues analyst for Focus on the Family, a national religious organization based in Colorado Springs, Colo. “Those petitioning for the change insist that there are an infinite number of genders, but just saying it doesn’t make it so.”
Since transgender often implies some sort of medical intervention, some people may not want that information to be shared on Facebook, Davis said. “I think the challenge here is that these words are loaded words,” said Davis, who lives in Brooklyn with her partner. “So they may be accurate for some people and not accurate for others.”
“Purely by categorizing yourself with these gender labels you are restricting yourself from personal growth, you paint yourself into corner so to speak. The amount of options does seem a little overkill, but it’s understandable as you wouldn’t want to leave any group or individual out.”
The move by Facebook came after years of lobbying from users, some who started Facebook pages to petition for the change. Google+ offers male, female and “other” as choices, but transgender advocates said Facebook’s many specific options puts the platform ahead of any other online community. About 1 percent of Google+ users identify as other.
Facebook came up with its terms after consulting leading gay and transgender activists. Facebook started the options in the United States and plans to take it global after working with activists abroad to come up with terms appropriate.”
From now on, the sex-social-media company has added a customizable terminology option with around 50 different terms so that their customers can identify their gender, beginning with three possible pronoun choices: he/him, she/her or a neutral they/them.
Indeed, with a reported number of 159 million monthly users in the United States alone, FB has felt the need to cover all eventualities and satisfy their specific needs to describe themselves as androgynous, bi-gender, intersex, gender fluid or transsexual.
The disgrace of this is that people are being fed the need to label themselves at all.
And, so continues the attack on the traditional family nucleus by liberal activists for whom, anything wrong will be labeled as “right” -even though their ‘evolutionary’ approach does not make it become “right” by any extent.
The activities of the fifth column are running amok in order to destroy the established traditions, beginning by the attack on religion, society and ultimately, each country.
The destruction of the traditional family and the purposeful destruction of the mother figure, are the most coveted targets that will end by annihilating the existence of individual countries in favor of what should be the most feared agenda: Globalism.
Mankind should not forget or dismiss what History has shown throughout millennia: how God has punished all the Sodom and Gomorrah that have repeatedly appeared in this world.
