⚧ C.T.L.W. You figure it out
My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
1) I'm against SSM, but am tolerant of those who are in favor, especially my many gay employees and business partners who want to get married.
2) I am against SSM, and will donate to a cause that attempts to enshrine, in the Constitution, SSM as a perpetual second class relationship in the State of California.
I don't see why it's so hard to see that distinction. That second was an attempt to strip, or limit, the rights of same sex couples. If it had passed, those same gay employees who he was so tolerant of (and I assume he was) would be forever prohibited from enjoying the same privileged status as a married couple that he enjoys with his spouse. It's a lot bigger deal than just an opinion on SSM.
Just as an example, if we go back a few years, imagine a CEO that was very supportive of all races in the workforce, blacks included. But, nothing personal, he just believed marriage was between members of the same race, AND supported anti-miscegenation laws. That's more than an opinion - those laws stripped or limited the rights of his black employees. Would anyone be surprised that black employees/customers/business partners and their supporters would protest that CEO? I know a lot of people don't see it, but that's the way many see this issue. It's a matter of rights that he opposed extending to his LGBT people.
I still stand by my position, and I'm here to discuss it, in that the LBGT lobby, by behaving the way that they are, are in fact engaging in that which they criticize of others.
One of you will end up here next!
