THE TECHNODEMOCRAT MANIFESTO

 

We believe the people have a right to political self-realization. Since we’re paying for it, and that we finally have the technology for it, we should be able to have a say in all things related to our governments.

We categorically refuse to recognize representative democracies as being real democracies, and we are going to call out politicians and the media who fail to recognize that difference.

Deciding who’s going to be deciding things for us, is not the same as being able to decide things ourselves.

The politician’s power to create and decide the law needs to be taken away, and their role needs to be downgraded to the equivalent of debate moderators.

The need for a Queer Salute

flagge-regenbogen

So, it looks like we won’t be boycotting the upcoming 2014 Sochi Olympics. Bummer. But, why would we? With all that gender-segregated, celebration of the  different aspects of the human body, the Olympics are already very, very, gay.

So I’ve been thinking, we need to come up with a universally recognized gesture that symbolizes support for LGBT people, in Russia, and around the world. Something that athletes can do at the games if they want to show support for us in a non-verbal way. A “Queer Salute” if you will. Something  we can also use once the games are over too.

So, I`m holding a poll on the subject.  And, in no particular order, here are some potential choices:

OPTION-A ” LIMP-WRISTED ”

model AA new spin on established queer body language. That bent wrist says: “I’m Queer and I’m proud”, the left hand on your chest says that you’re saying it from the heart.

OPTION-B, ” I heart PINK TRIANGLE ”

model BModern, and self-explanatory. A little less outlandish, but also more likely to appeal to our straight allies.

OPTION-C  Sign Language for the “G”

sign language G

A write-in suggestions with a certain flair.

OPTION-D   The Japanese gesture

Another stylish write-in option.

OPTION-E  The Write-in. You send your sketch or pic, with the title of your pose to: queersalute@gmail.com

YOUR MATERIAL

So yeah, here’s the poll: ^_^

 

AH! So the option for the “I heart pink triangle” won the vote, and it’s now the official T4D queer salute for the Sochi Olympics! Which is very cool!  A lot people suggested doing it with a downward pointing triangle instead, so here is the final updated version of “I heart PINK TRIANGLE”:
