The year 2014 has just not been a good year for Malaysia Airlines. While we may not have explanations of these bizarre incidents, the fact remains hundreds of innocent lives have been lost. Families, loved ones, left-behind folks have to DEAL with the REALITY. Others may give academic opinions, some may give their blood and sweat in searching for clues to bring closure, some may covertly hide the facts to not be exposed. The fact remains innocent lives were lost. The financial future of the airline is in question. The smallest of incidents make major news headlines. Either a “normal malfunction” or “auto-pilot failing“, everything is under the microscope. The other incidents are not extraordinary and if you ask anyone in the airline industry they will confirm these are routine and affects several airlines daily BUT is not a MAJOR news item. Its reported, the concerned authorities notified, appropriate corrective action(s) taken, life moves on – standard operating procedure. But folks at Malaysian Airlines feel the heat and are very sensitive and overly-cautious in this dreadful year 2014 for them.
The 2000s were similar for an intersex, infertile, IVF, immigrant family. Talking about multiple “taboo” subjects but it affects this family deeply, more importantly it affects innocent siblings deeply. Intersex by itself is “taboo” and only now people are even opening a sliver of a door to discuss it even at the highest academic institutions. Multi-disciplinary Gender Medicine Teams are only available in metros and highly reputed medical facilities, 5-10 years ago in 2000s, they simply did not exist. Does that mean the issues these highly educated GMTs are addressing today, the same issues did not exist in 2000s? The fact remains there is a lot of trauma dealing with intersex. DOMA was defeated in 2013 in the US – much after 2000s. As a result lot of things started coming out in the open. What about people who lived underground till then. Imagine a gay couple who professed their love but could not legally marry in 1999, had a child together and later decided to separate, who would get custody of the child? Legally, there is no marriage because its 2000s and not 2013. How do you fight for your rights – truth or lies? And more importantly, what is the impact on innocent children?
Left-behind family and friends of the victims of the dual crashes of Malyasia Airlines in 2014 will NEVER be able to FORGET and similarly family and friends of an intersex, infertile, IVF, immigrant family of 2000s can NEVER forget or be silenced for the abuse. Silencing the abuses through court orders is a continuation of the abuse because it is trying to cover up facts. Let the truth set everyone free including having equal rights for intersex and IVF children and families. Because if these existed in 2000s, there would be no need for the abuse of innocent.
