Today started out as a kinda tough day. North Carolina passed an act banning same sex marriage (not that it was legal there in the first place), which is a bummer. It cheered me up a bit to see this video though, and know that queer & ally North Carolinians aren't giving up.
Then, President Obama went ahead and declared that he believes gays should be able to marry. This made me feel better. A lot better. I am forgoing listing other things I like so that I can explain why I see this as something worth celebrating.
Some folks are gettin' their panties in a twist about this, and it's a legitimate twist. Of course, those are just words on our president's part, while he has taken very few actions to back them up. Of course, the state of gay rights in our country is like this, with steps being taken every day to further discriminate against LGBTQ folks. OF COURSE I want our President to put his money where his mouth is.
This could mean something really awesome.
