love is love

I can't do it. I've been trying. I've written and erased.

I can't write everything I feel about gay marriage, so I am going to try to sum it up.

People need to mind their business. If gay marriage is legalized anywhere, it is not a threat to your own faith, your own marriage, your own morals, your own heterosexuality. If gay marriage is legalized it is a triumph and blessing of human rights. No one should be denied the right to get married. Heteros have been effing it up for a long time anyway so how about this: make your marriage what you want it to be, and don't you dare try to take that away from anyone else. We need more people in this world who love without limits. Whether you're gay or straight, you need to LOVE. You need to be allowed and encouraged to LOVE.

Marriage, for me, is happy and hard and thrilling and boring and passionate and comfortable. It's a gift for those who want it. For those who want it, I wish we could all be this lucky and have that chance. No one has the right to take that away from someone else, or now even allow it in the first place. HOLY CRAP! How can anyone not see that??
