I've Held My Tongue as Long as I Can!

Not to be literal, but you get the idea. Now, I never watch pagents or beauty queen shows but of course, Miss California's comments regarding Gay Marriage made their way via CNN and ABC news.

I watched as Perez Hilton asked if she was "for" or "against" gay marriage. Her response? She believes marriage is between a man and a woman. Sorry if I offended anyone here, you guys!

Offended? OFFENDED? I was speechless (which is rare). The fact that she is stating that roughly half the people in this world shouldn't have the same rights as others floored me. And, she wants to know if she has offended me. That's not even the tip of the iceberg, baby.

I feel that gay couples everywhere have been done an injustice and I can't believe in this day and age that we are STILL fighting for human rights. You will see all kinds of people going abroad to help other countries with human rights. Guess what? WE NEED HELP HERE IN AMERICA.

We have come so far since I've been alive. And, when I become an old woman, I will remember watching Barack Obama winning the presidential election and seeing the world witnessing it along with me via the internet and television feeds. I will remember that innocent people were sprayed with hoses and had the police dogs attack them for no other reason except their skin was a different color.

There are good, decent people that happen to be gay. Why should some people have the right to marry and not others? So many have made a downright mockery of marriage and yet, people applaud the on-going marriages as "the right thing to do in life." What about us?

"No government has the right to tell its citizens when or whom to love. The only queer people are those who don't love anybody. "
~Rita Mae Brown, speech, 28 August 1982

My cousin married his partner,on their 25th anniversary together. They have never hurt anyone, they have been loyal to each other. They are both happy males, lucky enough to live in the UK. They had a wonderful day and their love for each other is still strong.
