Same-Sex Marriage and equality in South Korea. (성적 소수자)와 주한 외국인의 차별없는 동등한 권리 보장

The Petition will be sent to the President of South Korea and the Minister of Justice. 한국은 한국사회에서 중요하게 다뤄지지 않고 흔히 무시당하는 LGBT 공동체(성적 소수자들)를 보호할 필요가 있다. KOREA is currently facing disturbing treatment of the LGBT Community. Meanwhile, I urge the President and his team to sit down and watch this (https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/watch-78-year-old-gay-man-sits-13-year-old-gay-boy-emotional-video/ The LGBT community is growing and pay taxes, they should therefore have equal rights. No more should LGBT people in Korea be at a disadvantage to hetronormative couples, as a couple unit. For example: having children, banking, tax benefits, access to personal information (for example if a partner is hospitalized) and so forth.   Korea needs to protect the LGBT community which often is left on the side, ignored and swept under the carpet. No more should leaders within the Government be able to 'witch-hunt' people for being gay.

End the Glorification of Rats

Ok first off, don't read this unless you have A LOT of free time, because this will not be a short explanation due to the fact that this is practiced way too often and sometimes even praised in today's society. The morning of Tuesday, November 9th, 2016, Donald Trump won and had me thinking this problem would be solved. Oh boy, let me tell you I was very wrong. We are in VERY dark times. Now, you may be asking yourself, "Why is she writing this? What's so BAD about RATs? Let me see if this date and place rings a bell. Europe in the 1340s. The Black Plague! Rats! Everywhere! 25 million people dead! Children dead! Women dead! Fathers dead! Babies dead! Who's not dead? RATS! Think about how advanced the world could be had this event not taken place. Maybe we'd have a cure for cancer, maybe world peace, maybe Ryan Seacrest would be dead, maybe the Holocaust and the rise of fascism in Germany would not have happened.  Who knows? I do and it is the fault of the rats that we do not have these things. Anyways, you may say "k but this is not relevant." ok well you're wrong. History repeats itself sweetheart, and don't go crying when everyone is dying including you and your family from the Black Plague 2.0, new and even more deadly. I say, instead of bombing countries how about we just bomb all the rats? Sounds pretty ideal right? Well, if you agree, you'd be correct. I urge you to sign this petition. Let the nasty rats succumb to a painful death as well as the glorification of rats in 2017!

Stop Trump's Executive Order Allowing Anti-LGBTQ Discrimination

There are a number of rumors swirling that Donald Trump is planning to sign yet another discriminatory executive action – this time specifically targeting the LGBTQ community. Several sources spoke with LGBTQ Nation on the condition of anonymity who have said that the order will allow for discrimination in a number of areas, including employment, social services, business, and adoption. The executive order could be far-reaching, and could include: making taxpayer funds available for discrimination against LGBTQ people in social services; allow federally funded adoption agencies to discriminate against LGBTQ parents; eliminate non-discrimination protections in order to make it possible to fire federal employers and contractors based on their sexual orientation or gender identity; and allow federal employees to refuse to serve people based on the belief that marriage should be between a man and a woman, and that gender is an immutable characteristic set at birth, which would impact a broad range of federal benefits. The order is expected to come in the packaging of so-called “religious freedom,” which argues that someone’s religious beliefs should be enough to prevent them from having to provide goods and services to members of the LGBTQ community if doing so would conflict with said beliefs. Such a move by the Trump administration would also fly in the face of public opinion. The overwhelming majority of Americans support protecting LGBTQ people from discrimination. Unfortunately, since Congress has not passed the Equality Act, LGBTQ workers in a majority of states today live in fear of being fired or denied a job because of who they are or whom they love. During the campaign, Donald Trump vowed to reverse nationwide marriage equality, supported North Carolina’s dangerous and vile HB2, and said he would sign the First Amendment Defense Act (FADA), which would enable Kim Davis-style discrimination.
