I just put a check in the mail to pay my yearly income taxes. Most folks get money back, but self employed folks have to pay. A lot. I also went grocery shopping yesterday and both of us had a look at our veggie garden to check for critters that perhaps should not be there. All is well.
Why do I mention these things? Everybody does them, right? They sure do. Do I do them differently? Nope. But I put the words here, didn't I?
I paid for my government to continue passing laws keeping me from enjoying the same civil rights that the most of the rest of the country already takes for granted. The rest of the country seems to think that those civil rights belong to them and they can choose to keep them from us. That us is my partner and me. Two women who have enjoyed a partnership for years and years. We cannot marry, we do cannot get any social security payments that are attached to the other as most married partners do. We are denied those same rights that you have and never even think about not having them. Think about that next time you, in or out of your church are shouting gay slurs or demanding that the 'perverts' should be jailed or worse. That we destroy your families or marriages and corrupt your children. You seem to be doing a good job of that without any help from us.
I find it strange that although denied basic civil rights, I must still send a check to the IRS. It's not a gay check, just a check. I didn't shop for gay groceries, just groceries. I don't have a gay vegetable garden, just a garden. I don't drive a gay car or own a gay house. I don't have a gay dog or mow gay grass.
Does anyone else wonder about these same things? Probably not. You enjoy your privileged status….and just keep hating. Does it make you feel better?
You say you learned to hate us from your parents when you were a child. Have you learned anything since then?
