Hello from Winthrop Maine,...
...where we became one of the first states to VOTE in favor of marriage equality!
I'm a straight white 57 year old man. My wife and I were proud and happy to stand with our LGBT friends and allies as Maine voted 53% in favor of equal rights for all.
I mention my age because I lived through the civil rights movement and the "Women's Lib" movement. I've never seen something become so accepted so fast as LGBT rights and marriage.
To illustrate my point, do you remember that as recently as March of 2005 the republicans, fundies and those whove become the teabaggers were having a serious shit fit over the notion of a lesbian saying hello to a cartoon bunny?
If ANYONE tried that today they'd probably be laughed out of the room and rightfully so.
So, republicans, homophobes and teabaggers, please accept my sincere desire that you go SUCK IT!!!!!
BTW, Congrats, Senator-elect Baldwin!
That's my 2 cents, and quite possibly overpriced at that!
