I believe that the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.
I believe all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of kinship, love and tolerance.
I don't believe in distinction of any kind, such as
- race, colour, ethnicity, nationality
- sex, gender identity
- sexual orientation
- language, culture
- religion, spirituality
- political opinion
- any opinion
- origin (social, national or any other kind)
- age
- weight, size
- looks, beauty or lack of it
- disability or illness, visible or invisible, of mind or body
- property, wealth
- birth
- other status or identity

I left Care2

There has been some talk about how intimidating a person I am, so I'm giving them some time to see, that if they don't dare to speak when I'm around, what happens when I'm not around... I'm sure nothing much is going to chance, but - let's see :-)

I'm not going to be silent though. Care2 is not the only forum or media around the internet, you know ;-)

One of my biggest adversaries have started an own blog. I think he calls it "The Truth" or something other pompous like that. My blog is called "Ketutar says so", because this is what I am saying LOL I don't claim to know The Truth or be able to tell others what The Truth is, I just know what I know and what I think about things.

Now, everyone is talking about China and Olympics and some still focus on nothing but Israel-Palestine, but there's so much more happening in the world that needs to be pointed out and addressed:

For example: in Turkey the GLBT community is being harassed.
Istanbul gay group raided by police
This issue at HRW
Turkey's transsexuals face increasing violence

Compare to how bright the future looked only 5 years ago...
Turkey, a Muslim nation with a tolerance of homosexuals
Demet Demir today...

Fascinating... I find it especially interesting that the transsexuals can only work in prostitution... The people are being seen as threat to the moral, and forced by the social pressure to "be" that... I find that hypocritical. It's like a girl raped by police being arrested for immoral behavior.

Other interesting things:
