… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Lawyers urge legal protection for same-sex partners in China

Want China Times, Xinhua and Staff Reporter 2013-08-20

A group of lawyers are calling for legislation to provide same-sex partners in China with similar legal rights to heterosexual couples.

"Same-sex couples should enjoy equal rights and responsibilities as civil marriages. In recent years, an increasing number of them have consulted us about the issue," said Liu Wei, a lawyer with the Beijing-based Angelo Chen Law Office.

Liu made the remarks at 2013 China LGBT Community Consultation, a conference organized by the United Nations Development Programme over the weekend in Beijing. Liu has been working to promote rights of minority groups since 2004.

As gay people in China are not allowed to legally marry, they are excluded from a range of rights in property ownership, inheritance and child adoption, according to Liu.

In Shanghai, many gay and lesbian people cannot own a home because the city has banned unmarried, non-native residents from purchasing property, Liu noted.

In addition, same-sex partners are not subject to provisions in the marriage law that require couples to maintain each other and prohibit bigamy and domestic violence, she said.

"It doesn't make sense that the law treats homosexual couples differently just because of their sexual orientation," she said.

Given that same-sex marriage challenges social conventions, Liu said, China should start by introducing civil partnerships, a move which has proved feasible in several other countries.

Liu and Huang Yizhi, another lawyer with Beijing's Ruifeng Law Office, presented the suggestions in a letter to the legislative affairs commission of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress on May 16 this year, a day before the International Day Against Homophobia.

The letter, signed by eight other lawyers from different parts of the country, has not received a reply, Huang said.

"We don't expect our proposal to be adopted by legislators at once. To be frank, the possibility is nearly zero," Huang said, "but we hope our appeal may prompt them and the public to pay attention to this issue."

Half a year ago, more than 100 parents whose children are gay or lesbian openly appealed to China's parliament, calling for the approval of same-sex marriage.

"These parents deeply worry about their children's future, since marriage brings a sense of security. They hope their children can enjoy legal rights attached to marriage," said Hu Zhijun, executive director of PFLAG China, an organization dedicated to eliminating the stigma attached to people of different sexual orientation.

Li Yinhe, a prominent sociologist, has made several high-profile attempts to convince national legislators to legalize same-sex marriage in the past decade, but has seen little change.

Low visibility of homosexual people in society and ingrained social traditions are two key factors that have impeded legalization of same-sex marriage, although the public in general have been increasingly tolerant to the group, said Hu, a gay man in his 30s.

"Many people, including some legislators, haven't realized the existence of homosexuals. Therefore, they don't think same-sex marriage is a matter of urgency," Hu said.

In addition, skeptics are also concerned that children adopted by homosexual couples are likely to become gay or lesbian under their influence.

"That's simply ridiculous. I was born and raised by heterosexual parents, and my brothers and sisters are all heterosexual. Why am I gay?" Hu refuted.

A side effect of the ban on same-sex marriage is that many straight people unwittingly married to homosexuals are struggling with loveless relationships.

Zhang Beichuan, a renowned sexologist, estimated China has at least 10 million "gay wives," as nearly 90% of gay men in China are already married to or will eventually marry heterosexual women due to strong social pressure.

Gay men chose to enter opposite-sex marriage mainly due to pressure from their parents who firmly believe that forming a family and having a child are obligations for men, according to Zhang.

Homosexuality was removed from the Chinese Classification of Mental Disorders in 2001, after the World Health Organization did the same on May 17, 1990. However, stigma and discrimination still persists in many parts of the country.

In some less-developed areas, young homosexual people are forced by their parents to receive medical treatment to "correct" their sexual orientation.
