a victory for humans in massachusetts

June 14th, 2007

Thank you, 3/4 of Massachusetts representative Legislature who voted to not eliminate civil rights to a substantial minority. Thank you for such a decisive victory showing that we’re a civilized people and that we can tolerate people who are different whether or not we like them. Thank you for showing love and support for your friends and family members. Thank you for being decent human beings and allowing people to do what they want without government interference. Thank you for voting your conscience instead of your religious affiliation. Thank you for voting your religious conviction of decency to other humans. Thank you for recognizing that people love each other and it makes us all better people to recognize that in each other. Thank you for recognizing distinction as that which makes us different, not that which makes us less.

I love you, People of Massachusetts. Wanna get married?

    Isn’t it amazing when there’s a step forward in the midst of all the backwards motion of the last decade?

    The infuriating this about this is that this was *an attempt to get a referendum on overturning a state law that decided that something wasn’t constitutionally prohibited.*

    It wasn’t a step forward, legally speaking. It was refusing to step back.
