As a gay man…

You know, don’t serve me pizza, fine, I’ll eat elsewhere. I don’t want your hate-filled cake at my wedding. I can get my car fixed anywhere else without having to show a CHL. I can buy flowers anywhere else that will be assembled caringly, not with resentment.

Supporters of the marriage ammendment say traditional family structures with one man and one woman are essential for healthy children, while opponents say the Fourteenth Ammendment of the U.S. Constitution prohibits discrimination based on other people’s opinions.

I dare guess that our daughter is perfectly healthy – probably healthier than theirs, since we’re insisting on the HPV vaccine and sex education that includes knowledge of contraception…

Hey! How did this soapbox get under me?

The Ref has very few family-friendly quotable lines, but: Gus: What is the matter with you? I thought Mothers were sweet and nice a-a-and patient. I know loan sharks who are more forgiving than you. Your husband ain’t dead, lady. He’s hiding. Connie Chasseur: Who would catch a criminal, and then let him go free?

It used to work easily; I would create a bunch of blank lines, and drag the bookmarks from my chrome “Other bookmarks” folder to a new blank line in a wordpress post. Now, however, that just gives me the URL as text, without the bookmarks’ name. Now, I have to export my bookmarks to a
