Predjudice Rarely Survives Experience

"Predjudice Rarely Survives Experience" as seen on a Bumper Sticker this afternoon. Thought it was very appropriate for this day, the year anniversary of the Mass. law accepting Gay Marriage. Happy Anniversary!

I wish I could say that it was not a big deal, cuz in so many ways who one marries is not and should not be a topic for discussion. You love who you love. However, it seems predjudice runs deeply in this country, as the recent election shows. I hope all predjudice people have a chance to "experience" how gay marriage affects them and their relationship to their god and their lives. How it directy hurts their chances of getting health care and social services. In the end, marriage is a HUMAN right, and should be acknowledged as one.

Angel Related...

My favorite site of Death has done an article on Glenn Quinn (Doyle on "Angel"). Here's the site: http://www.findadeath.com/

Been watching some "Angel" lately...actually, watched some Season 4. While the ick factor with ConCord was still there, I did like Angelus being brought back and I esp. liked Faith fighting him. Season 4 has some good episodes, if only the writers could have actually delivered on an actual resolution that stayed in character for all involved..

I feel very disheartened that Americans have chosen to be the fool. However, I do feel that many many people have done outstanding jobs trying to get voices heard. I personally have done so very very much during this process--from doing Meet Ups for Clark, to making calls for Kerry, to the many donations to Democratic causes...all I can say now is that I am proud of Massachusetts for going to Kerry and proud of Massachusetts for gay rights. I feel Kerry ran a good campaign, and considering how close it was, I am proud of it.

Kerry was not my first choice. However, I grew to like him and I thought he would make a much better president than Bush.

I guess what we can do is keep the opposition on there toes. We can make a difference, this campaign has shown me that much at least.

Time to go mope...leave comments!
