About a year ago, the people of North Carolina voted on a marriage amendment which of course defines marriage as being between a man and a woman. I, of course voted against the amendment, because it has always been a civil rights issue and not something that should ever be decided by popular vote.
Fast foward to the present day, and now gay marriage is legal in North Carolina. A Supreme court judge understood that this is a civil rights issue and that gay people should be allowed to
Well, today is a big day in North Carolina. It's the day that homophobes get a chance to tell everyone just how much they hate gay people. Amendment 1, is said to define marriage between a man and woman only. The current North Carolina constitution already bans same sex marriage. The only reason this new "amendment" exists is to fuel the ignorance that people have concerning gay, bi, and transgender people.
Of course I was very happy to vote against the amendment.
Thanks everyone for your comments and encouragement. I went to the Doctor today. Among other things, I found out I had anemia and was slightly dehydrated. I just wasn't taking care of myself or eating well. That's what happens when you're deppressed. I also have a sinus infection. I have some new meds now, and I'm feeling a little better. It will take time to build myself back up to normal. Again, you don't know how much I appreciate each and every comment!
As some may have noticed, or perhaps don't care, I am having a particularly bad spell of depression. Got an appointment with my Doctor next week. I'm trying to keep a sense of humour and remind myself that it's only temporary. Hang in there Eddielee, just hang in there!
