With so many comments, I expect this one will get lost in the morass. And that's probably for the best. While I really appreciate the message of this film, it goes way beyond gay and straight.

We are a species that excels when we cooperate.

When we hate, it's out of fear or out of a thirst for power. Simple as that. It's the antithesis of cooperation. As a thirst for power, hate enlists fear in others to enforce cooperation within one group against another.

And that's the real problem. Imagine what we could accomplish if we could all cooperate.

I couldn't watch but the first little bit of this. I was never teased for being gay. I was teased for being smart, and as I distanced myself from the teasing, I was teased for being an introvert. With exactly the same emotional force depicted here. Gave me panic attacks to watch this, which is something I haven't experienced in years.

Haters gonna hate... And hate is what divides us. It's what robs us of our ultimate power both as a species, and as individuals. Needs don't conflict, only the strategies for meeting them. And hate is a strategy for managing fear and inflicting control.

I did get hammered for being gay (and smart), I thought it was so weird, because I wasn't gay (I wouldn't learn about the larger context of queerness until years later... I was just different.)

To be human is to be a frightened, pissed off monkey, desperate to have all the bananas on the one hand. And at the very same time to be an angel of light and reason capable of manifesting nothing less than the miraculous, by simple dint of will. And every instant we get to choose what aspect we're going to loose on the world today.

I love the scene in the Movie "Cloud Atlas", when Sonmi 451 shares her revelation to the world...

"To be is to be perceived. And so to know thyself is only possible through the eyes of the other. The nature of our immortal lives is in the consequences of our words and deeds that go on apportioning themselves throughout all time.

Our lives are not our own; from womb to tomb, we are bound to others, past and present, and by each crime and every kindness we birth our future.”

I long for the day that, children will be born, and from the moment they are capable of speaking, they are taught that life is not an affliction, and that love is the only language that matters.

I have a weakness.  A big one.  Actually, it's like a disease.  That is, I can't say 'no' to my children.  3 days ago, when my kids saw this page from instructables.com, they promptly expressed their amazing idea that Mom...

Story
Introduction
I am a software architect, an artist, a parent, and a companion. I love life. I am always seeking how to bring more joy into the world. By force if necessary (kidding).

I live with my primary, klrmn, who I am madly in love with. We date as individuals and as a couple. I also have two kids, 14 and 25.

I'm a man with both strong alpha traits (dominant without being domineering, adventure seeking, high sex drive, etc.) and strong beta traits (I love cooking, creating art, talking, etc.) I am very much a relationship geek. Constantly exploring how it all works and how to make it better. If you're looking for a manly man, who watches sports, plays football, and so on, keep looking. On the other hand, if you're looking for someone who blends the best of all extremes, then you've found one.

I treat touch as an art form. Tantra-fusion is a mix of massage, sexual energetics, focused attention, chiropractic, Reiki, and losing the self in the art.

I also teach swordplay, photograph nude women, ride motorcycles, jump out of perfectly good airplanes, dance freestyle for the joy of it, and emit poetry when so moved.

I am most interested in folks that are smart.

What about you?

I must admit, I'm not much of a coffee drinker... But their Mochas are *heavenly*. I always order mine with extra chocolate... They make them with ganache, and the result is sooo rich and silky...
