I almost forgot to vote today, but I remembered before the polls closed and ran by there about 6:30. There were no political offices being filled, just 9 ammendments of the state constitution to vote on. Honestly, the only one I was even aware of was the proposed constitutional ammendment to ban gay marriage. If it passes it would ban gay marriage and make marriage between a man and a woman the only legally recognized form of domestic partnership. I went to vote AGAINST this bull shit ammendment. I strongly believe gay and lesbian couples should be able to marry just like hetersexual couples. They should not be discriminated against and deprived of certain rights because of their sexual orientation. What we should be voting on is an ammendment that would legalize and recognize same sex marriages. And there is no reason it shouldn't pass either. Easier said than done though. I just hope the ammendment to ban same sex marriages doesn't pass.
The more I think about it, the more it pisses me off. And I'm not even lesbian. (Bi-curious though, I can't really say I'm bisexual because I haven't had that much experience with women).
But I should have the right to marry my girlfriend if I ever get one. And the way my current hetersexual marriage is going, I might be single again one day. I hope not, but he might not put up with me forever. And, damn it I should have the right to make my third husband a woman. Afterall, marrying men hasn't turned out so well for me. Oooh, I can finally get that strap on I've been wanting for years.
