Isn't it amazing that the easiest thing in the world - just looking out and wishing happiness and equality for everyone - is something humanity still struggles with? Why is it that we still allow our culture, traditions, religious belief, fears, and insecurities to come together and rob us of what is most basic to our humanity? Why haven't people figured out that it is time to shake loose from our cultural baggage, throw out the archaic traditions, break free from those limiting religious beliefs… and start facing our fears one by one, and trying to overcome our insecurities? What are we waiting for? We all know the answer… let's face it, the main reason we still support all of those evils is because we look around and see everyone else do it, so we go with the flow. We reject people that are different, casting stones so people won't suspect us as being different too.

The only way to turn this around is to stand up and start taking the ridicule. I'll go first. Hate me if you want. Despise me for rejecting all the evils you've so desperately nurtured. It no longer matters what you do, because from now on I will be a safe haven for those with the courage to admit to being different. I will accept people for being people without trying to pressure them into conforming to a preset expectation.

I'm a feminist because its time to wake up to the most basic truth. Our happiness script is a full out lie. Not a single person has ever reached happiness by being what their culture, family, religion, etc. told them to be! Nobody! None of us fit that mold. Everyone in this world deserves the change to feel free and safe to be who they are. If you are gay, straight, bisexual, asexual, transgender, suggestible, or curious, its a WONDERFUL thing! The only issue that really matters is consent. 

I'm a feminist because I believe that your sex parts don't control your gender role. If you don't know what gender means, look it up. Seriously, its time. This is a VERY important issue in life. 

All possible gender roles are WONDERFUL! If you have male sex parts and you are naturally dominant or aggressive, if you gravitate to being outgoing and make a great leader, AWESOME (so long as you still respect the need for consent in all of your interactions). If you have male sex parts and you like to talk about your feelings and work on your relationships, and you love kittens, AWESOME. If you have female sex parts and you like to dress up in beautiful dresses, go to plays, dance.. if you and enjoy being adored and naturally prefer being less dominant, AWESOME. If you have female sex parts and you feel naturally dominant and aggressive, make a great leader, and want to become a president, AWESOME (so long as you still respect the need for consent in all of your interactions). 

Equality cannot exist until we first make room for our individual uniqueness. Stop trying to pretend that everyone need to be the way you think you are. Our differences are what make this world an exciting home. Being weird means being you! 

I'm a feminist because I'm tired of the lies.

To watch my video response to a recent question about quantum space theory see: http://einsteinsintuition.com/2012/your-questions-answered/ Then post your own questions :-)

Thanks for you support. I just added you on FB. Stay in touch. I'm interested in knowing more about your book.

As for your worry about the credibility issue, it is true that for some crowds my particular past route is seen as damaging, but there are also large groups of people that sense there are things wrong with the systems in play, and people that have been hurt by those systems. For those that actually read my book, the credibility is not a concern, as the ideas are presented so that the reader can now own them for themselves.

I have no interest in convincing those in the upper towers that this idea has merit, as they already know ideas are wrong before they hear them. They claim to be looking for an idea just like this, but won't pay attention to any idea that's not theirs. Mainstream physicists, for the most part, haven't even heard of Bohmian mechanics (the interpretation of quantum mechanics that is deterministic, let alone superfluid vacuum theory), despite the fact that these ideas have been heavily published, and offer ontological superiority to what is taught today. My model, in many ways, is a blend of those two. The history of the evolution of ideas in science, or in any other avenue, follows this strain.

Benoit Mandelbrot and I discussed my theory just before he died, and he became a central motivator for me. His life was a perfect example of someone that was rejected by his peers, because his ideas were too radical. Instead of continuing to convince them that his ideas has merit, he switched gears, and wrote a book aimed at the general population, explaining how fractals show up all over the place in the natural world. A generation grew up understanding his ideas from that book, and they had kids that went to college and employed fractals in their subsequent work, without knowing that the mathematics community looked down on fractals. As a result, they found powerful uses for fractals-eventually convincing the mathematics community to take them seriously. I'm following Mandelbrot's advice and lead on this. ;)
