I was recently asked for my date of birth –which I gave
And said “I AM FLOWER POWER GENERATION“
The young lady replied
“NO –LUCKY YOU”
My generation were responsible for social change:
(that is all that I said –the rest is for the blog)
campaigning for animal rights:
caring for the ecology.
When I was growing up:
as well as having no rights nor status:
women were not expected to enjoy sex.
A woman was expected to stay a virgin until she was married:
A man was expected to be promiscuous:
Never understood how that worked:
When I was in high school we were discussing sex at lunch time and I said that there were double standards.
Several girls said “That is the way it is meant to be” —
What does that mean??? — (In actuality, it meant that it was a cultural norm.)
Once married the chances of a women climaxing was rather slim as (most) men of my age group are proficient at “wham bam thankyou mam!”
AND THEN CAME THE SEXUAL REVOLUTION.
Gays could stop pretending that they were heterosexual. 😀
And women could enjoy sex.
Many things have changed for the better in my life time:
Children have rights:
People who don’t have white skin have rights:
But our culture still thinks humans are the only species that matters:
And that life forms that don’t talk are not sentient:
Humans believe that cultures that live in harmony with the environment are primitive and inferior:
I tried to practice “ahimsa” before I was aware of the word:
Very difficult in western culture.
Humans cull other species
like the Kookaburras because they are eating other birds:
The reasons the larger carnivores kill other birds is that humans have destroyed their other food sources:
and humans put concrete on the soil so the birds cannot forage.
Davis Attenborough’s movie has got people’s attention
BUT ARE THE MASSES MORE POWERFUL THAN THE MULTINATIONALS (that control this world)
Enjoy your day
and respect other life forms
