It’s been all over the news, twitter and Facebook today. You couldn’t log into ANYthing without seeing something about it. North Carolina passed Amendment One. What is Amendment One? Well Amendment One bans gay marriage. The last time North Carolina banned any kind of Amendment in their constitution regarding marriage was in 1875 and that was to ban interracial marriage. We see how well that worked. Here’s the part that gets me. So as a woman I cannot marry another woman in North Carolina. I can however marry any male FIRST COUSIN! That’s right. I can marry Jim Bob and we can bring about children that could have all sorts of genetic issues. But Mary Sue…well she’s off limits.
Can someone PLEASE tell me in what universe this makes sense? Because I can’t see it!. Seriously eating things to make you bigger and drinking something to make you smaller makes WAY more sense than this. North Carolina has just set themselves back over 100 years. It’s discrimination. Plain and simple.
I think Seth Rogen said it pretty damn well: “Claiming that someone else’s marriage is against your religion is like being angry at someone for eating a donut because you’re on a diet.”
