WESHALLOVERCOME


(harvey milk: 1930-1978, civil/gay rights activist.)

the gay community is fighting for their right to marry, again. this time in federal court.

what the fuck?

i mean it: WHAT THE FUCK?!?!

are we really doing this?

are we really denying gays the rights we extend to everyone ELSE, just because some of us are uncomfortable with someone ELSE'S sexuality?

"you're gay, so therefore less than someone who's straight, so you deserve less. period." is that the opposition's argument? more or less?

fuck off with your blatant discrimination.

you know, someday we're going to look back at this debacle and feel the same way we do when we look back at slavery and segregation: STUPID.

what's so "sacred" about marriage, anyway?

there is a 50+% divorce rate in america! doesn't that tell you something? you can get married in VEGAS! doesn't that tell you something? britney spears was allowed to marry! hell-fucking-o, people! as far as "deserving" things goes, she hardly deserves to breathe, much less marry . . .

give gays the same right to be miserable as everyone else!

but that's not even the point, is it?

even if every heterosexual couple who ever got married lived in complete bliss, that STILL wouldn't mean gays should not be allowed to enter into the same social contract and receive the same benefits under the law.

i mean, we are talking about GROWN, TAX-PAYING, AMERICAN men and women here, are we not?

whatever happened to separation of church and state?

anyone?

anyone?

bueller?

that we have to go to court . . . and likely the supreme court at that . . . just to figure out that denying a person rights based on color, creed, gender, OR SEXUAL PREFERENCE is . . . i don't know . . . TOTALLY FUCKING WRONG . . . just seems to me pretty pathetic.

but if history has taught us anything it's this: battles are not won by those who sit and wait for change, who idle on the sidelines, but by those who make their voices heard.

Preach on sister!

Yeah, I don’t get it either. Maybe it’s because I’m immune to the arguments based off of Bronze Age myths, or it may be my mastery of logic, hell it could even be my belief that all people are equal and I don’t care what they do as long as they don’t try to make me get married.

Mainly though it’s due to the fact that if Brittany Spears can’t ruin the sanctity of marriage than nothing will.

In other news, Milk was one of the best movies.ever.

milk, the movie, as well as the man . . . both very, very excellent.

Ditto. Saw "Milk" a couple of weeks ago. Penn's finest hour and a remarkable story, brilliantly told.

As for the post, I echo De Campo - some of the best police officers I ever worked with were women - so fucking what? Some of the best were gay - so fucking what? Those that were useless were still just that, fucking useless. Stand up. Be counted. Be judged if you've been bad but please, lets just leave it there, please.

I don't know why so many straights have got their panties in a knot over this issue.

If I had any brains at all, I'd be a Lesbian, it makes perfect sense. Sadly, I'm fond of penisi.(latin plural for big dick)so I must live with my proclivities.

De Campo? When are we going to Wales?
There's asses to be kicked, names to be taken...


Ms Banana, I can assure you, you ain't missin' much, but I'd be happy to have you come by. rd7332@gmail.com

hogday: it IS great, isn't it? it's a superb performance and a highly compelling story, with or without hollywood.

powder: i'd sooooooo be a lesbian, if i wasn't likewise soooooo very much in love with the wang.

in fact, i think i was lesbian once, for a couple of hours, but it didn't work out . . . huh . . .

I'm OK with the lebanese but I have had a few problems with homosapiens.
