BodyWork4 saidHere's something interesting to ponder - and argue...
It's illeagal for homsexuals to marry, however, the federal government (and state) seems to have no "real" issue with Polygamy?
I thought that the "accepted" definition of marriage was: a committed union between a single man and a single woman
Lets face it, the whole campaign in support of prop 8 was nothing but a bag of lies suggesting it was salvaging the sanctity of traditional marriage and the family unit when in fact they haven't done one mother fucking thing to preserve it all along. Statistics on failed traditional marriage are staggering and they willingly participated in watching it go right down the toliet.
The real goal was to fight hard at maintaining the status quo of we vs them. The time honored tradition of making sure all the faggots and dykes know their place in life because the bible makes it clear we are nothing but something they can degrade at will. It would suck if they didn't have some group to define as lesser than them and by allowing gay men and women to legally marry it would have meant in the long run they'd have to find another group with a smaller populace other than the majority to belittle.
Watching all those fat polyester wearing pathetic beaten down married women holding their sniveling kids in one arm while jumping around in jubilance over this prop passing made me want to fucking vomit. They don't even get how some conservative christian men view them as nothing more than some slave or paid whore to rattle them pots and pans and put out whenever he feels like climbing on top of her for a quick fuck where once again she either fakes an orgasm or never has had one so she has no idea how to even fake it. He doesn't care. She's his vessel to breed and his personal maid. The ride wasn't about her it was about him. She just provided the tits and a hole. They don't even pay attention to the fact that they are used like idiots but privately the joke still remains the same. If she truly does have an opinon she's either a bitch or on the rag but in the long run shut the fuck up and get me another beer.
I'm even more pissed today over all of this because I honestly believe we underestimated how heavy the African American vote was going to be this year. Had we done a bit more foot work in reaching out to that community we may have been able to counter attack the lies and fear and explain things more clearly.
We relied heavily on AA celebrities to give our fight a face in ads but pro 8 had over 100,000 on the ground knocking on doors like drug dealers selling their bullshit. I said here about 2 weeks ago that trying to round up solid vocal support from the AA community would be a tough sell given their feelings on homosexuality. They consider it an insult to couple being gay as an equal minority to being African American. The argument is that they were born into their minority with no choice. We, on the other hand made the choice to be gay. So don't ever compare the two.
I can respect that thought process but if we had taken the time to explain how illogical it would be to think any human being would "choose" a sexuality that knowingly brings on hatred, judgement, and discrimination, not to mention potential alienation from our families perhaps someone would finally understand how invalid that argument is. All we needed was just a solid half of that base.
The other part of my anger today is that this prop passing was like half of the people in my own state calling me a faggot and having the proud backing to do it. It blows me away that people actually voted for this type of continued treatment giving very little thought to the diversity of our state. We are allowed to die for them, willingly pay our share of the taxes but they still want the right to keep us at a distance. It's fucking insulting to hold the word marriage as prisoner when they can't even live up to their own definition of that word. I do think it smells fishy given all the fucking lies pro 8 put out there it wouldn't surprise me if there has been some fraud.
Sigh, devastating isn't even the word to describe how I feel but I am far from defeated in all of this because some day this shit is all going to be taken care of properly.
