I believe in the unity of marriage between two souls for the length of ones life. Having said that, I do not believe that being able to marry as a gay person is the same as being equal too.

In fact, there is a big part of me that is thinking the opposite as of late. It almost seems that we are allowed to marry now so that we resemble normalcy to the straight community.

Don’t get me wrong, I want the happy home with the manicured lawn and sunny side pool as much as the next queer. But I do not want it at the expense of being an imitation of normalcy.

In my opinion, I am normal right now. In this moment. Even if I wasn’t allowed to marry another man legally, I am still normal despite what some hateful christian (intentionally left lower case because they are NOT true Christians…) behind a podium spouts off.

Marriage equality is a good thing and is not a battle that is done, nor should it be. Do not get it twisted though, some view this as one step closer to being as “straight” as possible.

Thanks, but no thanks. In fact, shove it…If I do marry, which I hope to again someday to a wonderful man, it will be because that is what this fag wants to do, not because I am…ah-hem…allowed (if you could see the curl of lip when I said that…)

Do what YOU want to do because that is what you want to do. Not because you are finally allowed to do it. Nobody has ever handed the gay community anything, or the trans community or any community that is outside Christian white America. Nope, if you want something you are going to have to fight for it, you are going to have to take it. Know this, someone will take issue with it because so long as you are happy, they are not.

LGBT makes haters, especially when were thriving.

Make haters sweetie!
