My new FTM YOUTUBE Channel!

im ryan, and im ftm! yah

i just wanted to post about my new youtube channel, where im trying to set up a place for people to talk about ftm everyday issues. Ive set up a few videos already and am open to ideas to make new videos. one of the more important reasons for doing this was because i felt that the lgbt community has a way of excluding queer people of color, and being hispanic myself, i identify with this feeling. i havent seen much out there based on these issues and thought maybe this could be a place for some of that to be spoken about.

well heres the channel check it out!

I wrote this last night
After the NY Senate chose to vote 'no' on equal marriage rights, I wrote this little piece and posted it on my FB:

Today the NY Senate voted 'no' to gay marriage and preserved the sanctity and future of traditional marriage. Gays and lesbians are the number one threat to marriage today. It is a little known fact, but homosexuals are responsible for 100% of ALL divorces in NY. Either by causing spouses to outgrow one another, or by messing about with married people's bank accounts so that they have financial problems which cause friction, there is a gay person behind every divorce.

What about homes where domestic violence (a blatant violation of marriage vows) is the soup du jour? If you go into these homes you will find a gay person right there, giddy with delight at the disintegration of the sanctity of marriage, cheering on the abusive spouse. And don't even get me STARTED on homes where sexual abuse is involved. Gay people can't incite that kind of behaviour enough!
You may ask, "What about spouses who cheat? Surely THEY are responsible for their own actions and the subsequent cheapening of marriage?" Well, my friend, I'm sorry to tell you, but you have been suckered in by the propoganda of the gay agenda. It's a tempting fiction, but here's the truth.
FACT: every single person who cheats does so with either a gay man or lesbian woman who has strategically placed themselves in that person's life to compel them to break their marriage vows. It is all part of the master plan of the gay agenda.

So I congratulate the NY Senate on their decision today. They are defending and upholding all that is good and right in this world. My only question is, is it really enough? We are still at risk here, people. As long as there is one homosexual allowed the same rights as we real people to walk freely in this country, I'm sad to say I'm not sure we'll ever be truly safe.

This is Naarah-Blue Meath, an upholder of TRUE marriage rights, saying "Goodnight New York, and well done."
********In case anyone missed it, this is dripping with sarcasm and bitterness*********

WHO: The Rochester Area Cast of the Rocky Horror Picture Show; THE ANCIENT SPIRITS OF EVIL

WHY: Because we can't get enough of the floor show and the crazy call backs; not to mention the shit-to-throw-bags ($1 @ the door)

HOW: By dressing up and running around acting out our parts...


Rochester Rocky Horror is now on MYSPACE
Add us as a friend for the most up to date news on shows and other Rocky adventures...

Come in costume and help us to get up and dance the TIME WARP AGAIN....

for any women who sleep with men
Have you heard about EC? You know - emergency contraception, the "morning after pill"? If you miss a couple pills, the condom breaks, or you've had unprotected sex for any reason, EC can help prevent pregnancy even five days later.

Even when you're using birth control, accidents can happen. So getting EC before you need it is smart.

It's easy to get EC at Planned Parenthood. And on Wednesday, December 6th, everyone can get FREE EC to have on hand - just in case. Stop by one of the Planned Parenthood Centers listed below. Or call the helpline at 1.866.600.6886.

There are no age restrictions for this free EC, but supplies are limited so get there early.

Pass this information on to anyone who may need/want/share it.

Making friends
Is there anyplace in Rochester besides a bar where GBLT people tend to hang out? I'm not 21 yet, but I want to be able to make friends who are a little more diverse than the ones I have now. It's tough sometimes, being the only not straight person who lives around you.
