Shouldn't everyone get to be miserable??

OK, in all seriousness, this was a nice headline to read today:

California's top court overturns gay marriage ban

I'm sure the uber regressives and the religious freaks and bigots will flip out.
But so long as the state is in the business of marriage, gays and lesbians should be allowed to get hitched.
What the fuck do you care?

When I was younger and immature (and probably used even MORE curse words) I used to be bothered by teh gays gettin' married. I also voted for St. Ronnie Raygun, so there is that.
That's another story..

So one day I asked myself, "self, what do you care whether two guys or two girls can get married or do whatever seeing as they are adults?"
And the answer is, I shouldn't give a shit. And I don't.
So get over it. And stop with the crap about what "they do" makes you feel funny in the stomach.
I don't like looking at two guys kissing in public.
But I also don't want to see you and your spouse do it either, so fuck off.
I'd like to see Selma Hayek and Penelope Cruz kiss, though.
That would be hot.

About damn time. But here's the thing. Why the hell is this even an issue? What audacity we have as a nation to go out claiming to spread democracy when we're denying our own citizens those same rights.

It's utterly shameful. Have we not learned anything from our past? Slavery? Women's sufferage? Segregation? Come the fuck on already people. Actively opposing gay marriage with the law is just as senselessly oppressive.

And to use the same religion whose golden rule is to do unto others as you wish them to do unto you as a crutch to defend this bigotry? Sickening.

Thanks for letting me use your space to rant here, Mike. The rent check's virtually in the mail. :)

Very amusing, Mike. In fact it was so amusing Dick had to pause his hooker-beatings on Grand Theft Auto so I could read it to him.

... okay, he wasn't really beating hookers - that's so 2006.

Seriously though, very amusing.

I think there's already a ballot initiative in the works for amending the California Constitution to make gay marriage illegal. The Far Right always has its priorities in order.

At least now the knuckledraggers will have a reason to slither out from under the porch and vote this November.

He used to try and kill hookers in the game, but we all know... they're already dead inside.

SaRant. Sweet.

Hey, Tom. People think we don't have right wing crazies in this state. they would be wrong. There's plenty of them.
