I can’t even concentrate on my work right now because of these cases. If you don’t want to read what I have to say, then scroll past this post now. Begin venting now:
Gay marriage should absolutely be legalized. Denying it is violating the 14th amendment. A “civil union” differs from “marriage.” I don’t care what your own personal opinion on the LGBTQ community is, acknowledge that it exists. People are the way they are. You don’t have the power to question that. You don’t have the power to deny them equality. This nation decided decades ago against “separate but equal,” but this is the same damn thing. This nation is intentionally denying equal rights because their religion or personal beliefs are getting in the way. Although you might think it’s wrong for some reason or another, don’t let your opinion deny your peers of their happiness; don’t put them down if you don’t approve. Who are you to judge. If you don’t like gay marriage, then don’t get gay married. Don’t discriminate, you are no better than they are. We’re all human beings trying to make it in this world. It’s hard enough for people to have the courage to come out and be who they really are. Just let them be happy. There is separation between church and state; this is a democracy, not a theocracy. So why shouldn’t there be gay marriage? You can’t tell me the only point of marriage is to procreate. Heterosexual couples who can’t have kids still get married. People over 55 still get married. Marriage is a powerful institution in this land. So much so that it makes me sick. My soul would love to be like fuck the establishment, I do what I want. But this is a nation of playing by the rules. Well guess what, rules were meant to be broken and amended as time goes on. Time to rewrite the rules to the institution of marriage. Time to be accepting of who people actually are. Justices, time to man up and decide the direction of this nation and stop trying to avoid the damn question. You have the right to set precedent, do it because no one else can.
Hollingsworth v Perry and US v Windsor
I miss you.
I miss how it feels to be around you.
How you could make me laugh
or feel needed at any given time.
Playing the perfect song to change my state of mind.
My saving grace.
But I’ll never admit it, not aloud.
But I miss you.
