No Rant Today

It's been a while since I've written a rant, and people have been complaining. But what do I have to rant about?

Matthew Shepard was lynched, but what do I have to rant about?

The Human Rights Campaign, the gay rights group that can't put the word gay in their name, endorsed New York Republican Alphonse D'Amato, who ended up losing the election anyway, but what do I have to rant about?

Talk show host Bob Enyart is planning on executing homosexuals, but what do I have to rant about? He's got a plan to take over the U.S. with a shadow government that sounds like The Handmaid's Tale, and plans to execute Pat Schroeder for advocating abortion, but I can't work up much concern.

I'm not going to rant. There's nothing to be upset about.

The Taliban Islamic fundamentalists in Afghanistan won't let women get an education or healthcare. But what do I have to rant about?

A recent poll of highschool students showed a marked increase in homophobia. But why would I rant about that?

There's an organization in Malaysia called The People's Voluntary Anti-Homosexual Movement. But that's hardly upsetting.

Why should I be upset when we've already achieved our goals? There are gay characters on sitcoms. Gays can serve in the military so long as they aren't blatant about it. A homosexual has been nominated as ambassador to Luxembourg. Many of us who work at white collar jobs at major corporations have domestic partner benefits. These things mean our goals have been reached, and there's nothing left to fight for. So why should I write a rant? Why should I be upset? I'm perfectly satisfied. Aren't you?

There's no rants today. I'm all out of rage. I didn't even have to take Prozac to be happy. Those things don't affect me. It's not my problem. There are charaties that will take care of those people. I hope you don't think I'm being callous. I just have other things to think about. No matter what we do, there will always be pain in the world, so why not just enjoy life? Can't you think happy thoughts for a change? If I ranted about that stuff, you might get upset. You don't want that, do you? Just relax, take a deep breath, and clear your mind of distracting thoughts. Take a media vacation, that's what Dr. Weil says. You have to make a cocoon for yourself, insulate yourself. Don't get upset.

I hope you're not upset that I'm not upset.
