Hey... you....

You need to go here:

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.

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.

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.
