The Post Wherein I Give A Kanye West-Style FUCK YOU to Idiots

As of today, 31 of the states who've put gay marriage on a ballot for the popular vote have shot it down. Look - there's obviously some confusion. Let me break it down:

People = People

Women = People (remember, they used to not be allowed to own property or vote)

Black People = People (remember, they used to not be allowed anything at all)

Gay People = People (currently not thought of as people unless someone needs a decorator)

Anyone who comes at me with "it's a choice" can take that argument to
Robert Allen - Florida State Rep

Larry Craig - Idaho Senator
Mark Foley - Florida Stat Rep

Ted Haggard - Pastor of the New Life Church

And they just keep on coming......

IF YOU, as a person, say that a group of people CANNOT do something everyone else of-age gets to do simply because YOU, as a person, do not agree with something about the group of people that is a part of their biological makeup...THAT IS BIGOTRY. THAT IS DISCRIMINATION. THAT IS HATE. And this is YOU. Accept it.

At the same time - someone needs to get the point across that MARRIAGE IS NOT SACRED. All people can end it any time for any reason. And they do. Over 50% of the people who enter into those vows eventually say "eh", label it "irreconcilable differences" and end the union. At the same time, there are untold numbers of marriages that keep on keeping on filled with infidelity...convenience over love...domestic violence, etc. How can gay people have any effect either negatively or positively over the institution as we know it? How? Really. I want to know. Tell me. I want to understand.

Real love is so fucking rare...millions of people will never even get a chance at it. So, if a people is lucky enough to find another people they want to be with for the rest of their life (regardless of whether or not that actually happens), who the FUCK are you, or me to tell them...sorry, but sodomy is only for the heteros. No hospital visitation rights for you. But wasn't it just like the real thing when you had symbolic ring exchange ceremony in the park that half your relatives refused to attend. No? Whiner.

Yeah, but it's weird to hear a man say "my husband". Could you listen to that with a straight face? I'd rather hear him say "I'm his wife", that's funnier.

That just made me tear up a little. SO well said. Seriously, in 2 minutes time (thanks to your previous email), you made me guffaw AND cry. You're a genius and master of emotional manipulation. - Jenn G.

Well wait a minute... if people don't beat up Gay people, how is anyone going to visit them in the hospital? A little fact-checking please!

Stinkypaw said...

Amen sister! It's a sad reflection of society when people are asked to vote on something like this. I guess we should start a movement to ban stupid people to reproduce and ask for a legislation ... just as stupid (and yet... I woudn't mind such a law!);-)

kara said...

goranas - eventhough i know you're joking, i don't have the energy left to laugh. the whole situation is just too heartbreaking.

macoosh - thanks, toots.

JG - but is it enough to make you POLITICAL?!?!?!?!

dad - can you believe it's been something like 15 years since the Matthew Shepard incident? not much has changed.

stinky - i wouldn't either. i'd also like it to be legal for me to just slap people any time i want to.

The idiocy of the world has truly left me behind. People killing people, people raping people, people beating people, people hating people and people wiping their memories clean of 8 years of Bush like it never happened and it never caused the horrendous mess we've been living through for the last year. I want one of those glass bubbles to take me away. Who are these "monsters" anyway, where's the humanity?

Anonymous said...

amen, sister. amen.

I'd say more, but Im too wracked with disapointed angst to muster the energy. Besides, you've said it all, so well.


Orhan Kahn said...

Oh, wow. I've never seen you so passionate about a subject before. I am impressed.

Gay marriage is still outlawed here, well, sort of. Gay people can legally be recognised as equally as a married couple. Sort of. Its all very techincal.

You're right on, Kara. Thanks for this post.

Well said.

People are afraid of change -- so afraid that they can't think logically. The same people who claim that sodomy is wrong because it says so in the Bible don't have any problem at all with eating bacon, mixing their meat and milk, linen and wool, working on Sunday, etc. They would reject so many things taken for granted in the Old Testament, but sodomy -- boy, they're dead set against that: it's a sin. And if two people of the same sex want to be together, well that's a sin too.

This will change: we've come so far. Just not far enough yet. But it will change.
