A response to the lord's dialectic of sex for a license to secular laws. If religion is a trump card and chastity is religion then Anti-Sex is a trump card as Anti-Sex is chastity and chastity constitutes secular laws, natural rules and public order. At least Anti-Sex is religious freedom in giving us faith in the balance of population. Should someone want to better understand what Anti-Sex-Exploration is or what the exploration on Anti-Sex is occupied with then here a statement for why I need to require the new science. Essential part of the exploration on Anti-Sex is to consider gender and sex on the basis of the contradistinction of dynamics and mechanics as related to wave-gene-duality and difference of attractions, with regard to gene selection caused by wave-gene-duality. Consequently Anti-Sex-Exploration so is regarded as independent or free selection studies on sex, gender and biological reproduction of the human species. Exploring genetics for dynamic and mechanical structures studies on Anti-Sex strive for findings on the effect of anorganic and organic genetic traits as related to the different attractions the substance does induce. Healthy regeneration and reproduction depends on natural and dynamic growth. So a main subject matter of Anti-Sex-Exploration is the question whether anorganic genes (rigid substance) inevitable cause growth disturbance and development disorder. If human's nature is organic nature homo attraction attracts organic genes and biogenetics, an exploration on eyesight and deafness too - that mechanical genes as rigid genetics (of non-human animals or not) engender disability. Anti-Sex-Exploration explores sexual Evolution thus and whether homosexuality has got a function for healthy reproduction by homo attraction. Why now such science and effort? Should something be not justified in this world for people loving the same sex then both the right to reproduction and the right to contraception as a right to chastity and prevention against abortion, a right to prevention against extermination too, you are not under the duty to commit murder. When the church rejects abortion religion has to accept chastity and anal-free love to the same sex - human love - for prevention against abortion. On the other hand religion clashes with the new theoretical approach on Anti-Sex in being not able to allow homosexuality as no degenerating sex drive for reproduction. Where the church comes into conflict with human's nature science and secular laws allow religious liberty as chastity and human love to both sexes grants us religious freedom. Anti-Sex-Exploration explores the prophet's plan and the instinct of the human species that will create homo sapiens organic still in thousands of years and if the human's organic sex drive will survive in millions of years by evolution.

With interest in communications to Transparency International here a brief description of the subject matter, with claim for clarification: Transparency International may examine the sales behavior with regard to corruption in terms of examples such as German enterprises mobilcom-debitel and media market that are supposed to be supporter of human trafficking and anorganic genes (intentionally or not) by selling computers. Customers not obliged to accept dispossessing acquisition would have to agree to dispossessing acquisition, for example by the usage of voucher to corruption and inversion of value, i.e. bribery. Is about sales behavior beyond extermination, what way the opposition behave themselves with their own clan. We do not know exactly what's the matter. With homosexuality ever is about woman and man as well and rightist heterosexuals for sure ignore persistently that always is about everything, not only about same sex love. We want family without plastic ass, without mechanical ass and commonly is propper to want a clan without anorganic genes. Transparency International may inform us whether activities of German enterprises such as mobilcom-debitel and media market are aimed at corruption. Heterosexuals demonstrate their obtrusive mechanical sex on computers - therefore we have the right to demonstrate exploration on Anti-Sex by computers, also an exploration on mechanical eyesight or deafness caused by mechanical genes, rigid genes engendering disability.

For pondering a definition on Anti-Sex -
for international discourse and exploration on inbreeding:
Anti-Sex is based on selection instinct, limits sexual intercourse and sex drive to both the opposite sex and the same sex character oriented, excludes sexuality to minors and to non-human animals, steers sexuality interest oriented and through character specific gene selection - that is to say also that Anti-Sex is based on attraction attracting human biogenetics and excludes gene selection foreign to the species by species-specific identity attraction. / Anti-Sex limits Sex as Sex is limited among relatives of a
family and Anti-Sex limits Sex by excluding anal intercourse. /
Intercourse has to function without sex to both sexes, normally
human love occurs without sex as well. Anti-Sex against any sexual chaos acts (also heterosexual chaos acts). The people have sex without rightist heterosexuals between woman and man, we do not need wrong instructions of rightist heterosexuals for wrong heterosexual intercourse, for example intercourse that causes inbreeding
degeneration - excusing themselves disabled people are obedient, inbreeding degeneration would be proper thus. Inbreeding degeneration is not proper.
Also to UNO, UNESCO or
WHO may inform scientists and interested parties for getting transparency on the question here set out of me on inbreeding or the aftermath of inbreeding by industry such as PIP, also an exploration on how inbreeding and zoophilia is connected through hetero-attraction. Anastasia working group

Anti-Sex-Action proposal to the issue of Homonormativity for placard or banner: We are family without sex! We are sober in the family without sex to both sexes. For human kindness without anal intercourse to the same sex, for the right to reject human kindness against mistreatment. The rightist heterosexuals are not sober without sex. Anastasia working group

Hello all.
Asking for your help.
I live in the Russian Federation,two months ago I was fired because I'm gay. At work I no longer take. A month ago, I was beaten much because I'm gay. I came out of the club, where I met the guys and was beaten up,took the documents and threatened that they would find and kill. I had to leave my village, I live in a small town, no documents do not take to restore the passport you need to pay a fine, but almost no money left...
I really want to leave Russia appealed to the German lawyer and he told me that helps but for the money,and my money and no. Helps me my friend from Russia, but not all the problems can, and he himself solve it. He has a guy and they want to leave Russia. It helps,but not everything can solve it.
The other day I want to move in with him to Moscow. They will help with obtaining a passport and passport for moving from Russia. Live here anymore, I'm afraid completely kill, the parents want to move to another city, they constantly afraid.
Please help. I'm afraid that can't manage. I please help us collect the money to pay the lawyer and his work. I don't want to seem like a beggar, I have no other chance to save yourself. Pay a lawyer and the extra money I will not take, I will post back. I don't want to use their profits from the money, I ask for a little help for me.
Please do not leave in trouble.
I can give the card number of a friend, I don't have this, it helps me. In future I want to be useful to people, learn and help the Russian gays as I do.
Thanks to all who are not indifferent to the problem...
e-mail me Abba2587@yandex.ru I'll give the card number of a friend for money, Thanks to everyone who will help me.

For me coming out was not an issue of acceptance from my parent's side but from my own realization. I was tought by my parents the values of tolerance and acceptance and I always supported the idea of being gay and living out one's sexuality.

But I never even wondered once if I, myself, could be a lesbian and when I first had the idea that I'm attracted to women I noticed that being gay becomes something else when one is directly conneted to it than just looking at it from a distance.

So before I came out to my parents I wanted to make sure that I knew what I was on about. It was the first time I got deeper into the topic and that is actually quite sad because in school when it was time to talk about sex, sexual behaviour and sexuality in 6th grade there was never even one sentence about homosexuality and I'm sure that if I would have been earlier into the topic I would have realized that I am gay sooner.

Nevertheless now I know and my parents know and like I expected they are supportif and don't care about my sexual orientation. I wish everyone would be as tolerant as them.

Who I am... Who I was... and waht i had could become...

If I write it:
You ´ll not belive it.

If I try to explain:
Some can´t even hear me.

If I would just tell what i can:
Some hate, some are jelouse, some ´ll only thry to dis to feeling better.

If I love:
There is apollibility to grow...

So all want to dis the Masters, and beliving beeing Batchelor you knew all better...
Have you ever think about, that with all the hate and disses; The Masters have no more intension to form develop and cultivate a aprendist... And two aprendist are just thinking to beware the right and position, fighting eatch other, so that they maybe have definitly lost, the agility to symbiosis, witch is the highest step for an aprendist, to aknowledge, that even when he is bacame a Master, it is just the next level in a challange to learn an grow in agility and intellect...

SO while all have had so mutch fun, dissing the outsiders, is here someone who is able to be...
Friend, symbiosed trainee and learn partner, and maybe can be like a gently teen while making friendly bodycontact?

And so carreers had been destroied, chances lost, future developments sloved down for decades, ....

WHY ?

It all started march 18, 2011 my husband and I got married then 8 day later I was told by my grocery manager that I wouldn't be given an over seas tour extension, no reason was given and after talking to the store deputy ( who I told about my problem in detail) he said that he was told that a reason doesn't need to be given to me. I have made 2 EEO complaints dealing with discrimination and harassment. Because Deca ( commissary ) refused to. Help me in my problem . I was told that it was my fault for marrying a local national ( my husband is German) I should have thought about the consiquences before hand. Since then I have been fired while on sick leave . While fighting to keep my family together and to get my job back I still suffer from my work related sickness . I wait for help from any legal group willing to help us .

My story is very simple: now we have for the first time in our lifes a president in the USA that speaks openly and personally accept gay marriage. Thousands of conservative people including the religious are moving against him in order to destroy him and his courage. What are we doing? What are we all gays and lesbians and bisexuals and transgenders are doing to support him? what? Why not take the chance! Gays of the world, please stand UP!

Press Release: Magnus Hirschfeld Federal Foundation Established Release Date 10/11/2011 Upon the establishment of the Magnus Hirschfeld Federal Foundation, Federal Justice Minister Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger states: With Jörg Litwinschuh, the Magnus Hirschfeld Federal Foundation now has a face. The foundation can begin with its work. The research and education program of the new foundation will make an important contribution toward openness in society. In an open society, there must be no discrimination against people with different lifestyles. With the aim of eliminating discrimination and establishing equal status for people with homosexual lifestyles, the federal government is standing behind the work that the Magnus Hirschfeld Federal Foundation is now actually commencing. Background: Today, Federal Justice Minister Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger appointed the communications consultant Jörg Litwinschuh as Chair of the new Magnus Hirschfeld Federal Foundation. The former managing director of the Lesbian and Gay Association in Germany LSVD Berlin-Brandenburg and former head of its Integration and Migration Center comes from the Saarland. The Magnus Hirschfeld Federal Foundation is established under civil law as an independent foundation, and is based in Berlin. It has been granted an endowment of € 10 million. The statute provides the Chair with a fixed term of five years. Members of the Board of Trustees are nominated from the German Bundestag, five federal ministries and other members of civil society organizations. Through its education and research program, the new foundation is meant to counteract social discrimination against homosexual men and women in Germany. The injustices committed by the Nazis against homosexuals should be historically processed and documented. In addition, the life and work of the foundation's namesake Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld (1868-1935) is to be scientifically researched and presented. The Berlin physician and sexologist was a pioneer of the gay rights movement and also dealt with issues of transgender and intersex. http://www.mh-stiftung.de

Germany still treats same-sex partnerships and heterosexual marriages differently, but the EU's top court says married couples or those in registered partnerships must get the same pension benefits. see: http://www.dw-world.de/dw/article/0,,15066843,00.html

LGBTI rights are human rights

Useful information about LSVD's human rights foundation, the Hirschfeld-Eddy-Foundation

Through international networking and cooperation with partner organizations in the Global South and Eastern Europe, the Hirschfeld-Eddy-Foundation provides direct assistance for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersexual (LGBTI) people being threatened.

We support national and international LGBTI-Human-Rights-Campaigns by providing information, raising public awareness and building alliances. We constantly work to convince those responsible for foreign policy, development cooperation and human rights policy. We support the work of human rights advocates and promote campaigns against homophobia and prosecution.

The Hirschfeld-Eddy-Foundation was founded in 2007 as the human rights foundation of the Lesbian and Gay Federation, Germany.

I'm living in a "Eingetragene Lebenspartnerschaft" (it's in some parts similar to the heterosexual marriage, in others, especially adoption, reproduction and tax rights there are big unjust differences). My wife gave birth to our son two years ago and we are both legal parents to him (since 2005 there is the possibility of adoption in "eingetragenen Lebenspartnerschaften", it's similiar to adoptions possible for step parents).
We never experienced bad discriminations. Sometimes people look or ask biased questions. But most of the time we get positive reactions.
To sum up, to live as a lesbian in Germany is not causing any big problems, but I admit not every thing is perfect yet.
Anyway, if any of you planing on visiting oder living in Germany, being gay is usually no problem.
