Yes this is turning into a post about Prop.8. The proposition on the ballot to take away marriage rights to same sex couples. I don't get it. I am a married woman (hell I've been married twice) and we have a family. There is nothing more important than my family. I am the mother bear who will growl and scratch to protect my family. Here is what I don't understand. If those 2 guys hit it off and fall in love and get married and adopt some babies, how does that threaten my family? How is does that even effect me, my husband and my kid? When I am at Starbucks and see a young heterosexual couple on a date I don't think about how their possible marriage could effect me and my family. So why would 2 men or 2 women getting married be any different?Prop 8 does not make sense to me.
I firmly believe that love is love and that like some people are brown or white, some people are gay or straight. I love my husband and I am happily married to him and we are raising our daughter together. We file a joint tax return and we all share a last name. We are committed to each other spiritually and legally. I believe that every person should be given these same rights. By denying anyone the right to marriage is stripping someone of their civil rights. A proposition not allowing Latinos to marry White people would be outrageous and racist and backwards and wrong. Why is this any different?
