As most of you know (or may not know) I am gay. Some of my earlier followers have known this since the begining. I love my wife with all my heart. I do not throw the fact that I am gay in anyones face. I don't even discuss my political view with others. My opinions are my own. But what really bursts my bubble are when people choose to try and take my freedoms as a gay person away. It just irks me that Prop 8 in California did not pass. I mean what are people so afraid of? We don't judge hetrosexuals, so why should we be judged? Isn't the USA supposed to be a free country? That's what I have always been taught. Sorry if I am on my soapbox. Really I am. I know that most people don't approve of my lifestyle. And for that I apologize if you are reading this and are grossed out. But I just hate to hold my tounge this time around. This is something I am feeling very very strongly about. And now I decided to do a YouTube search on the videos about Prop 8 and just am sickened! But I am a fan of Ellen and I think that she describes it best on the Jay Leno show.....
I guess I am just confused as to why our country is so damn scared of us gay people getting married? Why shouldn't we be afforded the same rights as everyone else? I mean think this... even if you are against same sex marriage, if something (God forbid) happens to my wife where does that leave me? I have NO say and no rights to anything after she passes on. I could be banned from being with her in the hospital, I could be out on the streets, I couldn't take care of anything. And that saddens me. I would want her to be my descision maker if something should happen to me. But we don't have that right becuz we can't marry. And that is sad! This country was founded on the basis of ALL CREATED EQUAL! UGH!!!!! Sorry I am ending my soapbox now. Just remember though, I am for gay marriage and I love my wife dearly. (though leagally she isn't my wife) I hope that some day it can be passed that I can be afforded the same rights as everyone else.
