Dear Friends who are thinking about voting against same-sex marriage:

When you hear or read the “anti” side making comments about gays, replace the word “gay” with my name.

Examples:

Burrow getting married is a threat to all families.

Burrow cannot be a good parent.

Burrow doesn’t love, it is only lust.

Burrow shouldn’t be allowed to marry.

Burrow is what is wrong with this country.

Burrow is ‘fixable’ with electroshock therapy

If Burrow can marry then we should just let people marry animals.

I hope that this contextualizes the argument for you.

The “gay movement” is simply about people who are in love and want to spend their lives together. Its about a legal recognition and protection of our commitment to our partner.

I’m in a survivor’s forum and some asshole (a mod, no less) says that somethings “really gay” meaning that it sucks.  This mod then goes on to say that I’m being irrational and ignorant.

Does this sound like a safe space to you?  What the fuck do I do?
