We shall overcome

The number one thing that bothers me about most "multicultural alliances" , be it gay, black, red, orange, asian or islamic, is the attitude that they are somehow... different. For some reason it really snaggles me with homosexual activist groups, but then again, they're currently the most openly vocal. Because of my sexual orientation, because of my race, because of my religion, because of my heritage... I'm different. It bothers me, because it is an assault upon the individual. People cease to identify with themselves, and become part of a "minority group." And that grates on me soooo badly. It's like chewing tinfoil. And while it's meant to attack attitudes against a particular group, in reinforces the idea that people COME in groups. Like we're a bunch of people with certain slots to go into. I have no race- I was adopted. I don't know my historical background, and unless I can get some native american scholarship money... I don't care. Sure, my adopted parents were Italian and Jewish, but I really never delved into either culture. I have no sexual preference. People are people, regardless if they dangle or bounce. (Though, my tastes do tend towards girls, mostly because of smell and bone structure.) I have no religion, except the one I crafted for myself. Well, I guess then, I'm a minority of one. The more rapidly information flows, the quicker culture will die When you have all the information you could ever want at your command, then what your parents taught you is meaningless. What gains meaning is the pesonal culture you define based upon the information you intake. In otherwords- we will achieve a TRUE multiculturalism... a world where each individual has thier own culture.
