Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

I know you don't want to accept it, but liberals over the past 120 years or so have really hurt me and my people: the straight, "white" male. Please take the time to review my argument and judge it on its merits before you jump to conclusions or assumptions about me or who I am. We'll start with suffrage and end up with this latest effort to hurt me, the building momentum to "change the definition of marriage" so that it's inclusive.

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

In 1870, black males were constitutionally granted the right to an equal vote in the US. The fallout for "white" males like me was this:

1920 brought the vote to other half of human beings in this nation, women. The hit we "white" males took over that one was notable, and included these daggers:

In 1954, Brown vs. Board of Education mandated that we "white" males may not legally separate our children in public schools from those of "non-whites." The ruling was judged to then apply to all public facilities. The disgusting consequences:

1973 was potentially one of the worst years for us straight white males on record, as women were seen to have a constitutional right to have control over their bodies, via the Roe vs. Wade decision. We're still hurting bad from the following damage to our rights:

Though we were able to fade further attempts to attack "white" straight male rights in this great country of ours when the ERA failed, once again we're being threatened by this momentum, now supported by our sitting President, to grant same-sex couples equal protection under the law by allowing them to marry. Do they not realize that the following will happen the rights are granted nationally:

God help us.
