My friend and I were discussing gay marriage.
I was all pissed off about how all of the S.F. marriages got voided by the CA government. He, though, doesn't like gays, thinks it's "not normal" and that people aren't "born gay." Now, I didn't get mad at him for his honest opinion, because i knew when I brought it up that I would get all hostile anyway. BUT the thing that bugs me is that SOOOO many people have the same way of thinking as him and it just makes me kinda sad you know? I just can't believe gay marriage is such a big topic and that it's even an issue because it's total OBVIOUS discrimination to be against it. So yeah, GRRRRR...

Yeah, I don't understand how people can actually be against gays. I just...don't get it. >.< It's perfectly FINE, geez.

Dying your hair, piercing your ears, going vegeterian, and getting limbs amputated aren't normal, either, but you don't see people trying to outlaw that. If they're so keen on outlawing something, they should shoot for smoking tobacco, which actually does harm other people.

It's just weird. It's just a goddamn like, or preference or whaever. Like some people don't like spicy food. That sounds really shallow and stupid, but I mean it seriously. I really don't get why it's a big deal what sex people are attracted to.

I get the same sense of futility when I bring the subject up with people around me. It's like there is a half of my friends that agree that the 'quest against gay marriage' is wrong (completely wrong, but I won't rant on that here, I already did that in my LJ this morning, accept to say: according to the 14th amendment which (gasp) says that no state can make a law limiting or prohibiting the civil liberties of its citizens, the fact that states are outlawing civil unions and gay marriage is unconstitutional.) The other half of my friends are like: But its wrong. The problem with that half is that they think with their religious beliefs and not their mind which would tell them that it's WRONG to deny people their rights. *sigh*

I wasn't aware that the CA government managed to nullify the marriages. Bastards!

I can't say that I 'fail to see the problem people have with it' because I understand most people's view towards homophobia I adamantly disagree with them, but I can vaguely understand what their 'big thing against it' is. It is sad that soooooo many people share the view that 'its wrong' or 'bad' or whatever they come up with to describe it. It's even more sad that so many people think they have the right to trample the rights of other people just because those people happen to want to jump into the sack with a member of the same sex.

Its a sad truth in our world at this point. I just hope that nobody gives up, that the people in CA that were married (even if the bastard state nullified them) keep believing in their rights; for that matter people everywhere keep believing in their rights. There is only one way to overcome ignorance and fear and that is with courage and hope.

this is what I wrote here: http://www.livejournal.com/community/liberal/1730052.html

and I cannot find a reason why gay people should not have the same rights as straight... it is just hate. They are not getting enough love in their life so they try to block other people's love.
