Riser is going too. And I am wearing my tuxedo t-shirt to the wedding. I will show up even if he doesn’t invite me.

Unfortunately, I have two strikes against me.

1. I’m heterosexual.
2. I don’t believe in marriage for myself.

I am very glad that was ruled though. Its just another battle won in a war of equality that the ignorant faction is destine to loose.

Hell yes. Stay out of my bedroom and I will stay out of yours. It seems so simple.

Pierre Trudeau has some great quotes but one of his best was “We take the position that there is no place for the state in the bedrooms of the nation.” He was talking about decriminalizing homosexuality (1967) but I think sentiment is appropriate here.

Sorry I know this isn’t exactly relevant but its always been a quote I’ve wanted to use somewhere. Don’t mind me.

according to my resident Lesbian sister, the legislation is technically still pending for another 30 days.

It is indeed about time. I can’t believe the things some people think they have a right to bother and interfere with.

I was listening to NPR on the way home from work and a guy in WI (Im from wi and I am not proud how how this guys made us look) said the following:

“All our public text books are printed in CA and I don’t want “them” and you know who I mean, trying to subvert my children into joining them in their perversion”

These people needed to worry more about the decision to pass on their own genetic Koolaid than what other decent awesome people in love do.

sorry for ranting but I am tired of watching amazing people I have known and do know who happen to be gay or lesbian treated second rate by others.

thanks for listening.

If only the bible had said being gay was cool we would not have this problem.

“Being gay is cool.”

So sayeth the New Bible of Fluther.
All praise the Word.

I’m gay and I think it’s high time for gays to be able to marry or even have civil unions. I always find funny when I have this debate and people are telling me it will ruin the “sanctity” of marrage. 60% of all marrages end in divorce and that has nothing to do with gays. I don’t know many people who haven’t been divorced or remarried. I think gay marrages can only improve the statistics. Unfortunately, I’m sure a Christian crusaider will be working endlessly to over turn this and restore the “sanctity” to those good people who’ve been married 2, 3, 4 times.

@sawyer I agree with you. No matter what a person’s feelings are about gays, they should recognize that two people who are dedicated to a loving relationship should have the rights accorded to them by a legal union. You and your partner should have the ability to include each other in insurance policies and make medical decisions etc. when needed. It shouldn’t matter what you do in the bedroom and who thinks what about it. If you have found the love of your life, and want to spend the rest of your days with him/her, that’s all that should matter.

Mikey and I are waiting until we see what happens with the ammendment that’s going to come on the balot in November. Sadly… I think it will pass.
