It’s been less than 48 hours since gays have been given the “right” to legally marry in the state of New York. I am certainly happy that this “law” has been passed because it’s certainly better than not having it. I am just sickened that it’s 2011 for crying out loud and this is only as far as we’ve gotten as a society? It’s taken all this time so that these corrupt politicians can give you a piece of paper vindicating your existence?! If we spent this type of energy on building solar powered bullet trains, for example, we could go from New York to Los Angeles and back in a couple of hours. Yesterday I was out with a friend and we were congratulated several times on the street as well as asked “don’t you people have a parade this weekend?” You people?! Wow.
For the record, I’d like to state that I love myself and that is ALL that matters to me. It would certainly be nice if other people love me too, but if you have no love in your heart for me – so be it! That’s your problem, not mine! I celebrate myself EVERY day and NOBODY will EVER tell me what is supposed to be important to me nor make me think I am a second class citizen because I am different than you are. I recommend you do the same. That’s the only way things will change.
