I won’t call it marriage if it’s exclusive
I found this post from Eating Out Loud on Offbeat Bride. Equal rights for the LGBTQ community is one of my biggest issues. I just DON’T UNDERSTAND why there are people in this world who want to DENY others of LOVE. I don’t get it. I’ll never get it. To all of you in California who have a level head, who think love is blind, who know love has no gender, please speak out. And know I’m pulling for you in Illinois.
From Eating Out Loud:
So, I awoke this morning to learn that my relationship with my partner is no longer deemed valid. It’s no longer legal for gay couples to marry. Gay relationships are somehow sub-par, not equivalent, and no longer worthy of protection. And you know what? I’m pissed and tired of holding it in.
I decided to snap a photo of my ring placed on a slightly different finger than normal to express exactly how I feel toward every single person who voted Yes on Prop 8. It’s my personal version of ‘let freedom ring’. The battle for equality changes course but it’s very far from over.
I’m sure some of you will believe in Prop 8 and that’s your right. Please make sure to update your reader to remove my blog and to delete any bookmarks to my site. I won’t take it personally but as for Prop 8 and your intrusion on my life … I take it very personally. For more information on the opposition to Prop 8, please visit NoOnProp8.com.
I welcome supporters of gay rights to snap your own photo showing your wedding ring on your middle finger. Spread the word that this fight isn’t over. Whether you’re gay, straight, bi, white, blue or tan — show your support by letting freedom ring on your blog then go here to log it for everyone to see!”
