3 BASIC PRINCIPLES ON SO-CALLED “SEXUAL RIGHTS”

WHY WE OPPOSE BIGOTRY, INTOLERANCE, IGNORANCE, AND HATE


OUR FAIR-MINDED POSITION ON SO-CALLED “RIGHTS” BASED ON AN ALLEGED SEXUAL BEHAVIORAL CHOICE, “IDENTITY” OR “EXPRESSION”

Bernice King

PEOPLE respect themselves and others by treating human sexuality with the utmost dignity and decorum, as something personal, intimate, and private, not as something to flaunt, exploit, or scandalize. Generalizing a behavior or a practice reveals clearly whether it is good or bad. Moreover, what is good is good even if no one does it, and what is wrong is wrong even if everyone does it.

Compassion, respect and love for all human beings inspire the frank and principled disagreement with extremist agendas and ideologies seeking to impose discriminatory and unjust laws or public policies based on an alleged sexual behavioral choice, “preference,” “identity” or “expression.” And it is an alleged choice because it is not scientifically verifiable. We oppose destructive, hateful agendas and ideologies, not human beings, that’s why we support the following three basic principles.

FIRST PRINCIPLE: Equality and human rights are universally based on our humanity and intrinsic dignity as persons, not on an alleged sexual behavioral choice, “preference,” “identity” or “expression.”

SECOND PRINCIPLE: Equality, fairness, and right reason hold that no one can justly claim, demand, or receive a legal benefit, protection, or so-called “right” due to an alleged sexual behavioral choice, “preference,” “identity” or “expression.”

THIRD PRINCIPLE: People self-identify and seek to be recognized and respected for, as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., said, the content of their character, not for an alleged sexual behavioral choice, “preference,” “identity” or “expression.”

True human rights are based on our humanity, equality, and intrinsic dignity as persons. Civil rights are based on our legal status in a country. Neither human nor civil rights are based on an alleged sexual behavioral choice, “preference,” “identity” or “expression.”

Accordingly, no one should claim, demand or receive a legal benefit, protection or so-called “right” based on an alleged sexual behavioral choice, “preference,” “identity” or “expression.” It’s that simple!
