So many people hate LGTB people. But why? Why make someone's life a living hell because you are something. It's like picking on somebody and creating a world wide hate to someone that has brown hair.

Hello everyone.. My first reblog on VOY is going to be a recent post I read written by the blogging intern Maria (http://www.voicesofyouth.org/en/users/227642).The subject of the post is the rights of LGBT people. And to be honest with you, this post is to express my feelings about this subject. LGBT people are a community that has faced racism, discrimination and prejudice over the years. Even though we live in 2014, in the 21st century, many people still spread hate towards...

"Dude that's so gay" When did phrases like this become an insult? Have you ever been called "faggot" or "fag"? When and why did people make this a degrading term? When did being gay become an illness or an abnormality? Why do people go against gay rights? I believe it's because of one thing and it's total ignorance. Some may take it on the religious side but Pope Francis said : What am I supposed to do, if a son of God comes seeking help and he's gay? Am I supposed to turn th...

Let's talk about AIDS. Who has not heard about it? Unfortunately, this pandemic has been a part of our lives.

Globally, 35.3 million [32.2–38.8 million] people were living with HIV at the end of 2012. An estimated 0.8% of adults aged 15–49 years worldwide are living with HIV, althoug...

Community owned property. Collective contribution. Equal wealth distribution. And Justice For All. Justice it is, for there comes about the complete absence of inequality, and Thomas Piketty would have the least worry of authoring another book. What is equal in not always what is just, but for what it’s worth, subjectivity leaves room for the ambiguous to play with your mind. I guess this is the same with every form of political - or other - theory introduced by humans. Everyone has the inhe...

This is the second time I have posted this. I am posting it again because what I am talking about is very important to me and many other people. I don't think at the time I truly understood the importance of what was happening that day in Seneca Falls, NY. I was in 1840s dress, My Mom was portraying Elizabeth Cady Stanton, And there was a declaration to be signed. It was Convention Days 2014. I met Nadia Shahram who was leading a movement for Muslim women. After...

I learnt from my "Women Weave the Web" page, how young ladies from Nigeria, Ethiopia, Japan and other parts of the world join forces to affect the life of women in all endeavours. Also, the AWID, a non governmental organization, in South Africa, portrays the notion of feminism. I remember, when my mum stood behind me, when I came home with a cut on my head. Although I had caused the fight, she stood behind me no matter what. That is the trait of mothers today, to advocate. Every Mother will do t...

First of all, let me start by congratulating Oregon and Pennsylvania for struck down the ban on marriage equality. They did a great job on making the best decision for our future generation. Things like this make me believe that one day full equality will be achieved. I have hope that one day we all will be able to share the joy of acceptance and be happy without prejudices and judgements. I remember back when I was still in school, I had a gay friend. He was constantly bullied...

The issue of sexual health has been a heart-ache in the domain of growth and its fundamental right. In Nigeria, there’s a redundant development in both men’s and women's sexual health. We (men&women), in most cases experience the same circumstances. Some girls are raped, which results from the deformity in social and health status, lack of respect and rights. Boys experience some abnormal behaviors as a result of poor environmental factors, being in the wrong peer group, the lack of sex-...
