Celebrate the Love.

“Fidelity”: Don’t Divorce… from Courage Campaign on Vimeo.

Watch. Share. Sign the pledge. It’s not too late to fight. Ash and I may not be married (yet), but that doesn’t mean this doesn’t have an impact on us. It physically hurts to know that there are still so many people out there who don’t see us as equals, who don’t see as human beings who deserve the right to be happy and to be ourselves. I cannot fathom it. I cannot understand how the dark ages are still oppressing us.

It’ll change. I know it will. We won’t give up.

Marriage On the same note, it’s Blog for Freedom to Marry Week. It’s sad that it’s come to this – where we have to actually spread the word about equal rights for marriage. Shouldn’t it be common knowledge? Shouldn’t it just be a given? Hasn’t it been said over and over again that we as human beings are all equal? So why is it then that we aren’t allowed the same rights? Even though this specific week is called Blog for Freedom to Marry Week, it doesn’t start or end with this week. We have to keep talking about it and sharing our stories and refusing to hide behind the ugly plaid lumberjack shirts in the closet (doesn’t every lesbian have one?). While I’m not married now, someday Ash and I will tie the knot and I hope by that time, we’re doing it legally and with our government’s blessing (honestly, when did it become the government’s decision?).

It’s a big thing, this whole marriage deal. Should it be? For the couple yes. But it shouldn’t be a big deal, at least in the negative sense, when two men or two women say their vows to each other and kiss as husbands and wives. It should be celebrated. It’s love.

Shouldn’t love always be celebrated?

    I do not have an ugly plaid lumberjack shirt.

    Alas, I have failed you.

    You need to fix that. Don’t worry, it’s not too late for you!

    (Actually, you went to Northland. Seriously, how do you not have one?)

    I don’t know. It just happened. 0.o

    Thanks to my Northland experience, I do own chainmail. Does that count?

  4. Nikki says:

    Chainmail is cooler than flannel. You win.

    As long as love is mutual between two people, it should always be celebrated. I can understand people having an issue with perverts trying to marry 8 year olds, but why do some people feel the need to butt in on an issue that doesn’t concern them? I’m sure that in the near future, you and Ash will be able to have a legal wedding. You have a lot of support from so many people in this country, so it is only a matter of time before the government gives in (I hope).

    P.S. I signed the pledge, so I’m doing my part as well. ^_^

    Thanks Mac, I know all of people really appreciate it. It means a lot.
