What about the economic impacts of not supporting equal rights? Consider unemployment for a minute. Less same sex marriage HURTS the wedding photography, catering, florist, and honeymoon travel industries.
My best friend is married to an extraordinary soul that is the same gender as she...they are amazingly happy, kind, productive, decent people---A bonus to our world as a team.
It didn't pass this time. So what. It's coming, amigo. Get used to it.
The point I was trying to make is: Who am I to curb the rights of another human being?? I was truly surprized to see a majority vote to put down the rights of another. Now the Courts will have to OVERTURN it again (ALL people have rights and even a MAJORITY vote CANNOT legally take away the rights of a person), its a violation of the CONSTITUTION!
So now the ---------- will ATTEMPT to get an AMENDMENT to the Constitution to put down those that they are AFRAID of. To me this issue is about FEAR and FEAR ALONE! I know MANY gay people and some of them I consider close friends. Funny thing is, I've NEVER heard one of them put down straight folks. Very sad Gregory Burton Boyington
seems to me that was the first personal attack of this thread...
But seriously, I have a scientific question. People of different nations and specific regions speak with a certain accent. Question is: Why do non-straight folks, guys more so, talk with a umm,, not sure how to put it... lispy valley-girlish accent/tone/voice inflection? Is there a specific name for that type of speech? Is that learned or innate? We often fear what we don't understand, so please help me understand, cause I am so afraid.
AverageMale, I am LAUGHING SO HARD I almost can't type this....."need not look far, assuming GM is one of them"....FYI, I'm a girl, and I live with my boyfriend, L.M.G.....LMAO.....AND, being "one of them" is hardly an insult at ALL. The fact that I'm in love with a male is irrelevent. It's the gift, not the wrapping.
RE: Your question/veiled dig at femmish gay males: you'd be amazed at all the different types of folks on both sides of the fence. Just as there are super butch lesbians, there are super girlie gay men. There are also stunningly beautiful feminine lesbians (i.e., my BFF), and uber manly gay dudes.
It's not like there's some remote country or Queer Nation where everyone has the same tell-tale accent indicating their sexual preference.
But back to the positive!!! New administration, yayyyyyyyyy!
