Equal rights = marriage

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

Everyone has there own opinion and I am not trying to force my opinion on anyone, however some things need to be said. My partner and I have been together for more then 15 years, we have 5 children that are really good kids and really smart when they want to be, they are well behaved and do well in school. All the schools see us as "the parents" of "our" children, a "family unit". Doctors see us as "the parents" of "our" children, a "family unit". Isn't this how married family's are? Isn't it true that we have been together a lot longer then a lot of married couples? For the couples that live together is anyone saying to them "you have to get married"? Well now that would be just ridiculous so why is "you cant get married" not just as ridiculous? What makes anyone better then anyone else? What right does anyone have to say who I can love? Who has the right to tell you who you can love, or marry? Straights are not special anymore then gays are, we are all people, we are all created equal so why do we not have all the same rights? How does it hurt anyone if we are aloud to get married?

    I've been saying this for a long time. If two human beings love and respect and care for each other, who has the right to call it wrong? I have to say that looking around, I see that plenty of the heterosexual couples aren't exactly people whose behavior or "expressions of affection" I'd like to imitate. People in glass houses and all that stuff - but who of us is so good and so perfect that we are authorized to judge others? NONE of us, as far as I know and I heard that in church!

    Love doesn't hurt anyone. I'm sorry that the laws haven't yet caught up to what most people feel now: love is love.

    Take comfort in knowing that your children will come of age in a world that views gay-marriage as a nonissue, a given. Just like mixed race schools and interracial marriage, unheard of 75 years ago but totally normal now! As my generation (20 somethings) come to power and prevalence, we will make sure you have the right to get married. It's starting to happen now. Keep your head up! Keep positive.

    I will never understand why some people feel that they should have the right to sanction love, but not hate. Love is love, regardless of the parts involved.

    Lol, I know how you feel. My son was thinking about it, lol trying to talk him into going to Hawaii. I feel if nobody cares who I marry why should I care who they marry?
