Gay Rights

Yanked from the journal of elemirion:

“Why is it that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands?” – Ernest Gaines

EDIT: I removed the “chain letter” part of this “meme”… the quote’s the important part anyway. 🙂

  1. There’s kind of a built-in false dichotomy that implies if I don’t post the little chain-letter thingy in my journal I must not really believe in gay rights. So I would like to just point out that I’m not posting it in my journal because I hate chain-letters and email forwards and I pretty much never repost or forward them, and I would like you not to make assumptions about me on that basis. 🙂

      • Well, the original quote is right on. It’s part of a whole set of messed up priorities. Why are people more at ease with viewing murder on TV than the sight of a woman’s breast? Why are people more concerned about the effect of gay parents on children than alcoholic parents, or abusive parents? For every gay couple who want to be married and raise a kid, how many crack whore moms are there? How many fathers who ditched their children completely? How many child-rapist stepfathers?
