*ducks the rotten tomatoes thrown at her by followers*
John totally shamed me in a comment on my last post.
I'm sorry John. I promise I'll stop being such an absent cow ;)
What brought me to writing today?
Outrage, that's what.
The other night, I was eating dinner and watching telly.
Minding my own fucking business.
And suddenly I get ambushed by an anti-gay marriage commercial.
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?
I was so disgusted, I wanted to throw my plate of food at the screen.
Of course they have to include, "Everyone has the right to live their own lives and be with who they choose, but NO ONE has the right to redefine the word marriage."
This line was closely followed by a huge close-up of the Bible.
I was literally yelling at my television.Why is this discrimination allowed?
My state is trying to pass anti-gay marriage legislation right now. You have no idea how much I wish I was allowed to cast a vote against it.
Replace 'gay' with women or people of ethnicity and they'd have to rent out a storage unit at the State Capitol for all the hate mail.
Because not too fucking long ago in our long history as a civilization, these groups were not considered 'citizens' and their rights were minimal to none.
I will never get why straight people are so goddamned afraid of gay people.
Because that's what it is.
Fear of something people don't understand.
And our education system sucks here. The health care system sucks even worse. The government is cutting funding to all sorts of areas.
But they're gonna spend an assload of money on a stupid law that will prevent gay people from being able to get legally married.
Way to get your priorities straight (pun intended), government.
Prop 8 all over again.
