OK here is were I start getting pissed off
Advertisements [?]
At the end of this cowardly crap they say.......
"So please, nows the time to contribute in time, in energy, in conversations, and in money to
the efforts currently being organized to hold onto marriage in Maine and to win it back at the
ballot box in California."
To that I say Fuck California and Maine and all of the rest! I don't live in California or Maine! Let them fight their own battles and let me fight mine. Who are they to tell me I should fight for the right to marry in another state and wait for those rights in my own. When will they aqueous to turn their OH so fucking important powers to the state of Indiana?
Iowa fell into our laps! Who'd a thunk it? IOWA!
Well you know WHO? Lambda legal that's who.
"In 2005, Lambda Legal filed a lawsuit on behalf of six Polk County same-sex couples and their children who were denied marriage licenses in Iowa, arguing that this denial violated the liberty and equal protection clauses in the state constitution. In 2007, the Polk County District Court ruled in favor of the couples, prompting the county to appeal to the Iowa Supreme Court.<2> On April 3, 2009, the Iowa Supreme Court unanimously upheld the District Court's ruling holding that there was no important governmental interest in denying citizens marriage licenses based on their sexual orientation. Licenses were originally to be available 21 days after the ruling, on April 24, but the availability of licenses was subsequently postponed until April 27 due to a Furlough day."
So why are they tell me now to take a chill pill and wait, give the a donation and let them help Maine and California.
Are these pillars of the "community" giving up on my rights and my state? What state do they want me to move to to guarantee my rights? Fuck that. This is where I live and this is where I will fight for full citizenship.

I just cannot believe this crap.
