I feel like something is wrong with me this morning. Why am I not as elated as the rest of my Twitter friends/MySpace friends/Podcasting Community friends/IRL friends? Don’t get me wrong. I’m not disappointed that Barrack Obama won the election last night. I’m thrilled. But everyone is saying “YES WE DID”…when, in fact, we didn’t. All we did yesterday was elect a great man to the highest office in the land. But everyone, ESPECIALLY you queer ones, seem to have lost sight of the bigger picture.
As of this morning there are now TWENTY NINE states with constitutional amendments “defining marriage”. And most likely, by the end of the day there will be thirty. What’s more, in Arkansas, the people have spoken and have said that straight people make better parents than gay parents. Do you think that’s something to celebrate?
Perhaps in another 221 years there will be another momentous occasion worth celebrating. But for now, all of us faggots are still second class citizens. And nothing more.
