  • Diversity

    Geez!! Does the word only mean gay now? I guess I have a gay retirement portfolio because I have always had diversity.

    Sochi Olympics Opening Ceremony hints at anti-gay law

    "But who expected it to be alluded to by the two top Olympic leaders here tonight? Although they didn't mention it specifically, both Sochi Olympic Organizing Committee President Dmitry Chernyshenko and International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach made a veiled reference to the controversy in their speeches:

    "Our Games will be yours," Chernyshenko said. "All of yours. Because when we come together in all our diversity, it is the Olympic Games that unite us."

    Then came Bach.

    "The Olympic Games are a sports festival embracing human diversity in great unity," he said. "Therefore I say to the political leaders of the world. … Please respect their Olympic message of goodwill, of tolerance, of excellence and of peace."

    I don't think it means anything currently. 'Diversity' is largely a code word that excludes European descendants (except white Hispanics (which is all of them if you talk with them)), Christians, Jews, good students, people who work, stay-at-home Moms, old people, heterosexuals, non-criminals, people who live below their means, conservatives, people who still like rhyming poetry and representational art, functional drunks/pot heads, people who wear clothes to cover their sexy bits, boys, etc.

    Your diversity ticket can actually get cancelled if you qualify on one thing, blackness for instance, but also hew to something else like traditional sexual relations or a balanced budget.
