I'm Trying Not To Fall Apart

Obama got elected! Yay! Truly this means that the US is finally over their prodominant bigotry, right?

Oh wait, yeah, they completely removed basic human rights from LGBT folks in four fucking states. I almost completely fucking forgot about that part. Gee, isn't that FUNNY?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! SEE, I'M FUCKING LAUGHING! HOW ABSOLUTELY FUCKING HYSTERICAL THIS IS. HAHAHAHAHAHA!

RIGHTS? WHO THE FUCK NEEDS RIGHTS, HUH? NO, WE'RE COMPLETELY FINE WITH BEING DISCRIMINATED AGAINST AND BEING CALLED DEGENRATES ON A DAILY BASIS. WE LOVE THAT SHIT. WE LOVE IT SO MUCH WE CHOOSE TO BE GAY JUST SO WE CAN GO THROUGH IT.

WE LOVE BEING KICKED OUT BY OUR FAMILIES, WE LOVE NOT EVER BEING ABLE TO GIVE CHILDREN HOMES AND FAMILIES, AND WE ESPECIALLY FUCKING LOVE NEVER BEING ABLE TO GET MARRIED TO THE PEOPLE WE CARE DEEPEST ABOUT.

EVERYTHING IS FUCKING AWESOME RIGHT NOW!!!

You know what? No. I'm gonna keep on fighting. I'm not gonna let some stupid, ignorant, hateful people win. Because that would mean I amdit defeat. That would be saying that I was wrong for wanting me and my people to be treated the same way you guys are.

And I would rather fucking die than say that.

I would like tho thank Sarah so much right now, because she took the time to write me and tell me how sorry she was. I'm currently stuck in my school library, trying very hard not scream and cry and break shit, and she helped me calm down and she let me know that maybe everything hasn't gone completely shit.

Since Barack has won, I've got a little proposal for him, since it's pretty much the only proposal I'm allowed to make in the States now. You built your campaign on Change and Hope and all that shit. Well, we believe you and we voted for you, now pay up. How about some change, huh? HOW ABOUT SOME FUCKING HOPE HERE? You're the first black president, and that's great, really. I'm glad to see that at least in certain areas, America seems to be moving in the right direction here. Now maybe you can be the first President with balls, and start helping legalize gay marriage. It's not gonna be overnight, and it's not gonna be easy, but you promised us change.



Put up or shut up.

My best friend was also personally devastated about the discriminatory legislation that was passed yesterday...it's disheartening and infuriating, but at least our country got something right last night. Hopefully Obama's election will help move gay rights along.

For now I will just have to settle on cursing half the vote in Cali.

The news this morning completely negated any celebratory feelings I had. How anyone could vote for an amendment that actually read "ELIMINATES RIGHTS" is beyond comprehension. And that is just California.

This really, really sucks. I can't imagine how you feel, but I really want to just give you a big hug right now. A friend of mine is looking into adoption with his partner of, oh, about ten years now. It just breaks my heart to think that there are people out there who'd rather see a child given to any old heterosexual couple, no matter how unfit they may be, than to these two loving and stable guys. Thankfully up here the law sees otherwise, but Godtopus knows not everyone is so enlightened.

Here's hoping that as more and more people actually SEE gay marriages and same-sex parents in action, they will realize just how goddamned perfectly normal and not threatening to their narrow little lives it is.

It took about 50 years from the first real agitation in the civil rights movement to the day we elected a man of African heritage black. People died, rights were restricted, but hard work and human decency appear to have won out for the moment.

The Gay rights movement is still in it's infancy in the states. People have died, rights are being restricted, but I'm confident it won't take us another 50 years to see the error of our ways. And one day we'll have an openly gay president who will attend his inaugural ball in a pink sequined tuxedo. Or maybe that's only how I'd like it to happen.

Besides, I don't have equal rights either, cause I'm just a woman. All of our problems would be solved if America could just get the Equal Rights Amendment passed, because then you couldn't restrict marriage licenses on the basis of the gender of those applying for the license.

Awww, my sweet Jeremy, I'm so glad I was able to help comfort you in some small way. Have heart, and stay strong. This medieval bullshit won't stand forever. And in the meantime, you know I won't shut the hell up about it until it's repealed and never brought up again.
