People are hearing the call and rising to the occasion. Two straight couples I know (independent of one another) are investigating how to get very publicly divorced and becoming domestic partners. These are long established couples with kids but do not want to enjoy a privilege that their gay friends are so unjustly being denied. Charlize Theron had already said she wouldn't get married until gay people could. United we stand, divided we have 8 years like the last two bullshit terms.
Another friend is launching a campaign asking all of us to email Barack Obama and asking him to please adopt a puppy instead of buying one from a breeder. What a message that would send. All around me people are thinking about the causes that matter to them and putting their money where there mouths are.
Here's the Barack Obama website: http://www.change.gov/page/s/yourvision
In the meantime, I suggest we all work to ban Republican marriage and enjoy this song by my friend Roy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bja2ttzGOFM
I wish he could retire this song.
