theantijock saidNot sure how I feel about this yet. My initial reaction is that the voters already said what they think of us, so I think I'd rather enjoy seeing this great nation's supreme constitutional authority in its black robed, exalted dignity tell the Florida electorate to go fuck themselves.
But wouldn't it be nice to see at least one state in the region have its people vote for marriage equality? Because you that Florida is the only state in the southeast where that is possibility.
Do I think that we should hold out our hats and beg for votes so that our family and friends do the right thing. Because, regionally, we still want to attract the gay tourist?
I get what you're saying and I said I need to think about this. Pardon me for being difficult.
But my mind does go back to the pain I felt all last week wondering and waiting when someone who claims to love me might call and offer congrats on my gaining rights that I've never known in my entire life.
Do I have to beg them for votes too?
Do we have a single thread applauding all those who called us? The first time in this country's history, one of the few times in the recent 2000-year history of the planet (I calculated that in Jesus years in case you missed that), for the first time in all my 56 years, my government would recognize my loving relationship to be as valid as theirs yet no one called?
Those are the votes you would want me to garner?
Where's the pride in that? Tell me how I should feel. And how did you get there?
