Hey... you....

You need to go here:
http://www.afa.net/petitions/marriagepoll.asp

and fill out the survey. Don't stress about giving your name and all that jive, cause it's legit. You need to make damn sure that the government of this country doesn't think they can amend the constitution to specifically deny rights to ANY group, including those with a sexual orientation different than your own, or your parents' own, or the President's own, or whatever. The fact that this is even a possibility on the table is ludicrous... telling people they can't get married because they have either too many or too few dicks. Next thing you know, we'll have gays riding in the back of the bus and picking our cotton for us.

If you already filled it out, you can see how it's going here: http://www.afa.net/petitions/SummarizePoll.asp

Bonus: If you disagree with me on this particular issue, and you can provide me one valid reason why, then I'll consider not drowning you in the nearest truck stop toilet.

right on....
i don't have the words to describe how ashamed and embarrassed i feel to know that the words in the declaration of independence "with liberty and justice for all" now only refer to the conservative, racist, "un"-christian, intolerant motherfuckers whose own mothers should have drowned them at birth...i wish them tortuous lives...and speedy deaths...

there is a line from the play "angels in america" that says "the word free is on a note so high that no one can reach it."

thomas jefferson rest in peace

None of your business...
One of the most beloved, lucrative companies in the world- Disney- is willing to risk their reputation by providing equal benefits for domestic/life partners, and I don't see their stocks suffering... Why not just make it legal? Do you really think your nephew is going to understand if I decide not to let him watch House of Mouse just because Bill and Ted are now husband and...husband? Nope. And I would never subject him to that, either. Just sign the damn piece of paper and make it ALL legal. It's nobody's business...if you don't want it in your life,then what the fuck do you care? You're not invited to their wedding, you've not been asked to send a gift...you won't go to their funerals, nor will they come to yours- unless it's to piss all over your grave...life is short, and we're all going to die sooner or later, one way or the other...why not go out in the arms of someone who loves you, no matter who it is? Most people don't have that luxury. Make it legal, one way or the other, call it what you want, and just let it be. I have someone, so I'm set. Why do I care what other people want to do?

I'm surfing the crimson wave this morning, so this was the perfect outlet for a little PMS...thank you for listening, and have a nice day.

Sorry, but no thank you...


I understand the feeling behind this attempt to "balance" this web poll, and I've gotten about 8 emails from various people telling me to "vote." I even went to the web page. Then I decided not to input anything. You know, the last thing I want are a bunch of militant homophobes to have my email address and be a few clicks away from my home address. Fuck that. On top of that, this poll isn't anywhere close to "scientific" and who is to say that they won't just make up the results anyway. In any case, no matter what the results of this poll, the right-wing assholes are going to do what they are going to do. I hold no illusions that these people give one flying fuck about what you or I think.

Re: Sorry, but no thank you...
Well, I think that's a bit on the paranoid side, but OK. I think that even an informal poll that does nothing more than show them that they're not as much the majority that they think they are is worth my time. As for the email address and home address thing, just use a fake damndirtyape.net address if you want. Anything ever sent to it will just end up getting to me.

To me, half the absurdity of these peoples' behavior is the fact that they think that everyone except for a few crazy liberals agrees with them. Why not use their own poll to show them that they're not as powerful as they thought, and maybe make them pause before throwing all their money into fighting for this. Sure, they don't care what we think, and sure, the right is going to ultimately do what they want, but for these people, I like the idea of them knowing that there are as many of us as there are of them. And, I like knowing it for myself. As of today, the split is almost 50/50.
