Equality

Posted on Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

Dave!Today's the day our Supreme Court gets to decide whether they are going to be on the right side of history.

I find it absurd that a country founded on personal freedoms is set up so that nine people are going to tell gays and lesbians whether or not they can marry the person they love, but here it is. They'll either decide that taxpaying gay Americans are equal citizens deserving of marriage... or they'll decide that a citizen's freedom to marry should be regulated by the government and it is the law, not love, which dictates who can or cannot be married.

What a load of crap. Because, honestly, why should anybody give a shit what two consenting adults do with their relationship? Marriage equality has been legal here in Washington State for months and you know what's changed? Gay people can get married... THAT'S IT! No straight couple has suddenly been told they can't get married any more. Nobody is being forced to get "gay married." The sky hasn't fallen. Life goes on.

Support Marriage Equality

Unless you're gay, marriage equality DOES NOT AFFECT YOU.

But equality for every American affects everybody. Here's hoping the Supreme Court is smart enough to see that.

    Well said, man. I’m hoping and praying this goes well.

  2. claire says:

    Thanks for speaking up, Dave! It’s good to know there are folks like you out there.

    Equality for everyone (which is kind of the point): let it be so.

    Fingers crossed for separation of church and state.

  3. Howard says:

    I would love to see it all change today, but I really think those 9 people are just going to go: it’s a State’s call.

    If that happens, I can’t wait to see the bullshit they come up with on Prop 8 is unconstitutional, but DOMA isn’t.

    But then again, I was utterly flabbergasted when the health care act was upheld.

    Still, fingers crossed.

  4. Becky says:

    Well said.
    I just don’t understand the concept of people believing they have the right, and the duty to tell other people how to live their life. The government is taking over, one small step at a time, and we are letting them, because it’s such a small thing this time.
    Know how to boil a frog to death? Put him in a pot of cool water and bring the temperature up slowly. He’ll never notice, and will adjust as it rises. We are becoming a large pot of frogs.

  5. Sarah says:

    This is so perfect Dave. I hope they decide on the right thing and allow everyone the opportunity to get married.

  6. Thank you. For being a good human.

  7. Lee Sargent says:

    We are struggling with this in Australia as well, unfortunately we’re nowhere near moving forward in fact in my state we moved backwards which completely boggles my mind.

    I don’t understand how we can still tell people that love each other that they’re not allowed to be married.

    It takes nothing away from “normal” marriages and frankly it’s not like religion invented marriage anyway – my understanding is that it originated in China as a means of confirming taxation and ownership in joined families*.

    Let’s just let people do their thing as long as it doesn’t impinge upon the liberties of anyone else.

    *this may be completely wrong but the sentiment is still true ;)
