6. baby steps. Yeah right.
Edited on Wed Nov-04-09 08:24 AM by sui generis
That baby is sprinting a four minute mile, backwards.

Here's a fact: if you are against gay marriage and for civil unions, then you might have voted against us in Maine. How is that a baby step?

Marriage is NOT about love. It's about property, assets and shared fiscal responsibility. It allows you to define your family unit for purposes of medical care, insurance, and inheritance.

So you enlightened people of Maine who aren't "against the gays" but just trying to preserve marriage: fuck you for telling same gender couples in Maine that their parents or siblings have a greater right to challenge medical decisions, financial disposition, and beneficiary assignments in Maine than that person's life partner.

You're fucking sick in the head and don't deserve the privilege of being American.

And Obama. Fuck. You. You don't really believe in us, but unlike Tinkerbell, we're still here, and we're not going to fade away.
