Because I wont be able to have one.
I wish my moderate Republican friends would simply be honest. They all say they’re voting for Romney because of his economic policies (tenuous and ill-formed as they are), and that they disagree with him on gay rights. Fine. Then look me in the eye, speak with a level clear voice, and say, ‘My taxes and take-home pay mean more than your fundamental civil rights, the sanctity of your marriage, your right to visit an ailing spouse in the hospital, your dignity as a citizen of this country, your healthcare, your right to inherit, the mental welfare and emotional well-being of your youth, and your very personhood.’ It’s like voting for George Wallace during the Civil Rights movements, and apologizing for his racism. You’re still complicit. You’re still perpetuating anti-gay legislation and cultural homophobia. You don’t get to walk away clean, because you say you ‘disagree’ with your candidate on these issues.
I AM SITTING HERE CRYING OVER THIS FUCKING EXPEDIA COMMERCIAL ABOUT A DAD GOING TO HIS GAY DAUGHTER’S WEDDING KILL ME PLEASE
It’s a good thing I don’t have any more classes today because my mascara is ruined.
I’M NOT CRYING YOU’RE CRYING
I didn’t think I would actually cry, and then I did.
I think this speaks for itself. Accepting a person doesn’t mean you get to put limits on their freedom. You can’t be an ally and want us to stop talking, or labeling, or demanding to be heard.
Acceptance has no exceptions. Period.
“AS LONG AS YOU DON’T USE A WEIRD LABEL”
I have seen far too many people on tumblr start to whine that eight labels for sexuality is going “too far”, when a lot of those people know over 81 times that when it comes to Pokemon, and I’m pretty sure sexuality labels are more important that virtual monsters.
Sexuality and gender identity labels aren’t “frivolous”. And the vast majority of people that use them aren’t trying to be “special”, they’re merely trying to find a word that validates and explains their orientation - something that most people have and take for granted.
tl;dr: This person is amazing and I love their graphics so much it hurts.
So in France, as you know our new President is for the same-sex marriage and wants to pass a bill to authorize it, but a lot of people are not really cool with that. In the news today, they wanted us to vote on a poll to know if we are for or against the gay marriage. And the “no” is winning, this is really something I don’t want to see tonight when they are going to show the results.
So there is one thing you can do. You can go to this page : http://news.fr.msn.com/m6-actualite/
I know it’s in french, but what I ask you is simple. On the right of the page, there is the poll :
The translation of the question is “Are you for the same-sex marriage ?”
Oui = Yes
Non = No
Sans opinion = No opinion
Voter = Vote
So please, choose to say “yes” and click on the “vote” button. If you want to see the results, this is what happens :
The “no” is winning. And this is not great. So please help, and maybe we’ll have a positive answer to that question on the news tonight.
The thing about gay marriage is simply that it’s not gay. It’s marriage. If you are uncomfortable with marriage, you can not outlaw marriage. And, shocking, even if homosexuality makes someone uncomfortable, one can not outlaw identifying as or practicing homosexuality. So seeing as both homosexuality and marriage are legal, their being combined should be no big deal.
the muppets ended their partnership with chik-fil-a over their blatant anti-gay remarks, and chik-fil-a is now lying about it. spread the word, yo.
also, keep supporting the muppets, those guys are amazing.
Oh, what’s that about blacks being homophobic snobs? Where are you white people?
Kameron Slade, a fifth-grader from Queens, NY, was scheduled to deliver a speech as part of a school-wide competition at PS 195. But when the principal learned Kameron’s speech was about same-sex marriage, he was ordered to choose a new topic or lose the opportunity to speak. (via)
That principal is sippin that haterade and imma sit here and wait that person to make an apology.
And look at that, that principal proved that kid’s point too.
