I know that there is nothing that I can state here that has not already been stated, or made profound, but rather I am here on my own forum to speak my peace and put my loud mouth on a pedestal.
As an open lesbian living in the breading and bathing ground of political sewage that is DC, I would like to take a moment to address the most recent movement of marriage equality. (Side note: as someone who received like 8 hate emails one time for talking about blow jobs in jest, bring on the hate mail mo-fos.) For some reason or another, there are people who see homosexuals getting married as a threat to the sanctity of marriage. I see it as a tribute. A stepping stone. A new way to celebrate the love and renew the strength that the institution seems to have lost along the way with the Kim Kardashian's of the world - If that bia can marry 2 men, then I don't see why my boo Brian can't marry 1. If you aren't into gay marriage, then I suggest you don't marry a gay person. Which leads me to the next issue.
I don't believe in the term "gay rights". To pigeon hole gay into a subcategory that is other than human is mind boggling. I believe in human rights. To deny anyone - gay, straight, overly confused, black, purple, having 4 teeth, or daddy issues, the right of eternal happiness goes against everything that I know America to be. As we move forward in our political and social views, securing the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, make sure you do just that. Supporting equal rights, including gay marriage, is something I see as a civil duty as an American, all I can do is hope that you do the same.
