Love and Peace

Posted by Kohaku , in Real Life, Rant, FABULOUS Aug 21 2013 · 242 views

So there has been a post going around Tumblr for awhile and I think it has some things that need to be said here.
 
It is illegal to be gay in 76 countries.
 
It is illegal to be gay in 76 countries.
 
It is illegal to be myself in 76 countries.
 
 
First off the number 76.This comes from a UN report from 2011. If we use a bit of Google we find that the number is currently a bit higher. But the point stays the same, it is illegal for me to be myself in 76+ countries.
 
Many of the countries have harsh imprisonment laws among other forms of punishment such as whippings. Or worse, some countries have the death penalty.
 
I can be imprisoned for being myself.
 
I can be killed for being myself.
 
Even in the United States it is not safe for me to be myself, there are states such as Louisiana that have had sting operations meant to target gay adults. Not to mention there are still a lot of hate crimes. Even in New York which is a very progressive area, there were a bunch of hate crimes that cropped up earlier this year.
 
I will stand against homophobia and transphobia. I will stand up for equal rights. Calling someone out for being hateful and harmful is not insulting them or hurting them. A lot of their hateful words have done more harm than calling them a bigot has ever (or will ever) done to them. However by calling people out on these issues hopefully it can inspire change.
 
Just because someone believes something that is hurtful does not mean they will always believe it. People do have the power to change.
 
BZPower is going to be a safe place. In fact in order to survive I believe BZPower needs to become a safe place. So many websites and communities are not safe places on the internet. There is a lot of bulling. Bullying has led to so many people committing suicide. I don't want BZPower to be like those places, I want BZPower to be a place where everyone is accepted for who they are.
 
I care for the people on BZPower, many of them have helped me through so many hard times in my life. Even now I've got great friends who have helped me through things (such as Hurricane Sandy). There are so many times that I've wanted to simply give up, even recently I've been going through some huge depression regarding my situation. However, I've met so many wonderful people here and they have all impacted me in some way and it has kept me going. There have been multiple times in my life where I have been in such dark places, and I've had great friends who have pulled me out of those places.
 
Let's make BZPower a safe place for everyone. A place where everlasting friendships can continue to be forged. A place of love and peace.

A Bird in the Chimney

Posted by Kohaku , in Real Life Aug 18 2013 · 131 views
Bird, Hurricane Sandy
So you know how I’ve complained about the town before… well… I have some new complaints!
 
Unfortunately as we are trying to get the complaints and fines they have put against us I do not want to discuss too many details.
 
The department of sanitation refuses to come down the road to collect garbage because Verizon refuses to remove a low hanging cable wire. This resulted in code enforcement complaining at us about the garbage.
 
Things went from messy to messier.
 
In actual good news my big project is proceeding a bit, although I have hit a snag with setting some things up on that too. Hopefully I can unveil it soon though. (Or at least part of it.)
 
In more other news we had a bird in our chimney today. It seemed okay and we were able to open the chimney and guide it outside. The poor birdy was covered in soot, but we watched it as it flew off.

Posted by Kohaku , in Lego, Real Life, BZPower Jul 31 2013 · 116 views
Hurricane Sandy, Lego, Minifig and 1 more...
So recently I managed to obtain some of the Lego Minifigs from Series 10. Sealed. Of course while sealed both Aleks and myself felt each package and determined what was in each package. We have decided to sell them on BZPower to you guys. This is money that will be going towards a good cause and that is helping us exist a little bit longer as we try to get back in our home from Hurricane Sandy.
 
Minifigs Available:
 
$10 – Medusa - 2 Available
$5 – Roman Commander - 6 Available
$5 – Tomahawk Warrior - 9 Available
$5 – Skydiver - 6 Available
$7 – Paintball Player - 3 Available
$5 – Sad Clown - 1 Available
$5 – Revolutionary Soldier - 2 Available
$5 – Baseball Fielder - 4 Available
$9 – Trendsetter - 2 Available
$5 – Decorator - 5 Available
$5 – Motorcycle Mechanic - 9 Available
 
If you are interested, send me a PM. This is first come, first served. All prices USD. Some prices are flexible, especially if you purchase more than one minifig. However, every penny helps us out. Shipping still needs to be estimated, but should be under $1-2.
