warning: lots of white guys in this post

17 May

did you all know that judge vaughn walker of prop 8 trial fame, came out? yeah. i know, i clearly have no idea what’s going on in the world. of course, peeps are all pissed saying of course he overturned the prop cause he gay and stuff. p.s. the stand on the overturn is still standing. so yeah, thanks CA supreme court for acting so speedily on this one.

and now bill clinton is supporting new york gay marriage. let’s just take a moment and think about how insane it is- the man behind don’t ask don’t tell. but whatevs. don’t even get me started on dadt.

and did you hear about the olympic chief who just stepped down from his post from the 2012 u.s. olympic team cause he’s a loud mormon who was involved in the prop 8 campaign? some louder olympians were not happy about his anti gay beliefs especially the young johnny weir, so eventually he had to go i guess.

he said, “i wish my personal religious beliefs would not have become a distraction from the amazing things that are happening in the olympic movement in the united states.” yeah. i actually wish that too. i really do.

don’t be coy with me, you are in no position

there’s just a lot going on! we’ve got the prop 8 trial wrapping up today in the state of california. a word on this: it seems to me this trial has really been about whether the state should regulate marriage. in other words making “gay marriage” a private issue, rather then a state institutionalized one.

yawn. i feel a little bored by that argument.

i mean marriage is marriage. it is inherently institutional. an invention of religion. we, i mean many, many people have tried to romanticize marriage and consumerize marriage, and yes many have taken god out of their ceremonies, but we cannot pretend that it wasn’t born out of and continues to be part of the patriarchal society in which we live.

so we gays are asking to be a part of that. yikes!

okay now you know my true feelings. on the other hand by not allowing me the same advantages that some married couples may enjoy, even if that is the ability to call the person i love my spouse, then you are denying me (i say me, even though i don’t mean me cause i don’t want to get married, but you know what i’m sayin) of a liberty that another person may enjoy and that is not very nice.

now that i’ve explained my thoughts on “gay marriage” i should also say that even though i’m not so hip to the idea of getting married i do believe in fighting for something that others should fairly enjoy, if they so choose.

and also it really pisses me off when the mormon church gets involved. cause guess what? you kind of fucked me up and your definition of marriage gets really weird. i mean should we get into the fact that polygamy has been officially abolished on earth, but in heaven….well that’s a different story. gross.

support your local art theater cause it will probably have a showing of: 8 the Mormon Proposition.
