Equality

Posted on Thursday, December 6th, 2012

Dave!And so today is the first day that Washingtonians can get a marriage license if the person they want to marry happens to be the same sex as they are.

It's all the sweeter knowing that their fellow Washingtonians voted to make it so. 53.7% of us feel that love is love, and our laws have no fucking business telling people who they should fall in love with. And this number has nowhere to go but up. Especially now that backwards-thinking straight people will see that two dudes getting married or two ladies getting married has absolutely no fucking effect on their lives.

The pictures rolling in are heartwarming.

Some of these people have been waiting decades for the opportunity to get married...

And even here in Redneckistan, happy couples came to get licenses...

You have to be one cynical bastard not to be happy for such happy people being so happy.

But, of course, cynical bastards are everywhere.

The bigoted pieces of shit over at the hate group "One Million Moms" apparently feel that gay people shouldn't even be allowed on television. Even when they're not doing anything "gay." Their latest in a long line of absurd targets is this cute ad for JC Penny with Ellen and some elves in it...

What the fuck?

Seriously, WHAT THE FUCK?!??

It's a commercial featuring one of the sweetest, kindest, most caring people on television talking to some elves. I mean, holy shit... I could understand if Ellen was eating out the entire Dallas Cowboys cheerleader squad and the ad was airing during Saturday morning cartoons... but this?!? THIS is what's being protested?

I guess these morons think that seeing Ellen in a television commercial is going to turn girls into lesbians or something, so hold on to your vaginas, ladies.

But even more disgusting than a group of repugnant bitches wanting to eradicate gay people from television is that these repugnant bitches ARE MOMS! They are raising children! Children who may very well end up being gay in one of the most hostile environments imaginable... their own parents want them eradicated.

Which is how teenagers end up putting a gun to their head and pulling the trigger.

I can only hope that the fact that gay people are on television... and gay people are in the news being happy... and gay people are getting married... only serves to show these kids that there is life outside the horrendous environment their own homophobic parents create for them. That one day they can escape from these million idiots and be happy. That life gets better.

And so, on behalf of the 53.7% of the people in Washington who want to create a better life for all kids out there... fuck you, "One Million Moms." Fuck you up your ignorant, bigoted asses. If there's any justice you'll have to pay for the blood on your hands. I just hope your children aren't going to be forced to pay with you.

And to all the happy couples out there... congratulations!

  1. I wonder what the slogans on their pickets signs would read?

    Now I wonder who watches their kids while they picket?

    Do you think the Westboro Baptist Folks do consulting work for other hate groups? If so, what is their hourly rate?

    How many moms are actually in One-Million-Moms? It’s probably less than 1,000. Is that false advertising or just puffery?

    All kidding aside, does anyone take this shit seriously…I mean, what kind of traction can you really get out of protesting a simple holiday commercial because an actor is gay? I’m just waiting for the other show to drop and complain that one of the elves is black.

    Not one of the main elves, he’s in the booth behind the trio. OMFG??!!! He’s chatting up a white elf girl! Them Million-Moms have something real to latch on to now!

  2. Those 53.7% of people in Washington have placed a smile on my face this morning. The bigotry surrounding the latest Ellen ad less so. Ugh.

    Excellent post! Loved the photos.

    best. sentence. ever.

    ” I could understand if Ellen was eating out the entire Dallas Cowboys cheerleader squad and the ad was airing during Saturday morning cartoons… but this?!? THIS is what’s being protested?”

    Among those getting their marriage licenses after midnight was my boss and her long-time partner. I saw their picture in the paper and got teary. I’m so proud to live in a state where this is happening!

    I hadn’t heard about the protesting (thanks for keeping me informed). Ellen is one of the best people in the business. People should aspire to have her heart and kindness!

  6. claire says:

    Being represented on TV and in news does make me feel better. Being positively represented even more so.

    Also, pretty sure the million moms are not nearly that many. Don’t recall if it was 10,000 or 100,000 when they started, but it was far short of their claim. Suppose I could check on FB but I’ll pass on giving them that hit.

  7. Matt Westergard says:

    This post warms my heart. Thank you.

  8. martymankins says:

    Brilliant post. And after seeing all of those photos, I now have something in both of my eyes.

    I shopped more at JCP after Ellen became a spokesperson.

  9. Stacey says:

    Love the photos. Happy couples make me smile. Good job, Washington.
