Why is Facebook suggesting I join “LGBT = Liquor Guns Bacon And Tits” Private Group?

Nov 30 2016 – Kevin Yaworski – Proud Canadian and Global Citizen
Why is Facebook suggesting I join “LGBT = Liquor Guns Bacon And Tits” Private Group? I don’t think that I have been posting anything to indicate I am against actual LGBT people.
Or is it simply because I am a male and do like Liquor Guns Bacon And Tits? That said I try and control myself when it comes to these things as they can get you in trouble 😉
Although this group name is funny LGBT rights are important and need to be taken seriously. We are only recently learning more about this part of the human brain and development. I could not even imagine what it must be like growing up in the modern world with mixed feelings about who I am gender or sexual orientation wise.
Two spirited is the translated name many ancient aboriginals in at least north america gave to the gifted people that can see the male and female side of the world. They were honoured and revered.
My main motive for posting this is to draw attention to the fact Facebook was suggesting or promoting this group which I feel is disrespectful of this serious matter. I agree 100% with the following and think we can learn a lot more from these ancient cultures.
I do respect LGBT rights and here is why we should not only respect but embrace them.
More about gifted two-spirit people.
——————————————–
The two-spirited person is a native tradition that researchers have identified in some of the earliest discoveries of Native artefacts. Much evidence indicates that Native people, prior to colonization, believed in the existence of cross-gender roles, the male-female, the female-male, what we now call the two-spirited person.
In Native American culture, before the Europeans came to the America’s, “two-spirit” referred to an ancient teaching. This type of cross-gender identity has been documented in over 155 tribes across Native North America (Roscoe 1988).
Our Elders tell us of people who were gifted among all beings because they carried two spirits, that of male and female. It is told that women engaged in tribal warfare and married other women, as there were men who married other men. These individuals were looked upon as a third and fourth gender in many cases and in almost all cultures they were honoured and revered. Two-spirit people were often the visionaries, the healers, the medicine people, the nannies of orphans, the care givers (Roscoe 1988). They were respected as fundamental components of our ancient culture and societies. This is our guiding force as well as our source of strength.
