Interestingly enough, if you scroll down to the second post, you will notice some postings saying that homosexuality is immoral, perverted, and twisted.  Of course, this is coming on the heels of the overthrow of Prop 8, a elected law that makes homosexual marriage illegal that was overthrown because it is unconstitutional.  So, I want to talk about that.

The constitution, considering you have read it, says that everyone is entitled to the pursuit of happiness.  Everyone.  Not just religious people, but everyone.  I suggest you read the constitution and get back to me with any questions you might have.  Really, reading it should be mandatory.

I understand people who might think that homosexuality is a perversion.  Often people fear that which they do not understand.  Homosexuals are not perverted.  Nothing about loving another person is perverted.  If two people love each other, what is that doing to you?  Homosexuals are also not out to destroy marriage.  We simply want the right to commit ourselves to each other and have the rights to marriage that everyone else has.

What if you went to see the person you loved in the hospital, being very ill and possibly near death, and you were not permitted to see them?  What if you and the person you loved own a house together and the person you love dies.  You are forced to deal with the family of the one who died who gives you no rights to the house you paid for.  What if you found you and the person you loved were in a car accident and the person you loved was not allowed to ride in the ambulance with you?  What if the one that you loved wanted to dedicate the rest of his or her life with you, share expenses, and get no taxation break because of who you are?

Homosexuals are not trying to turn marriage into something it’s not.  We are trying for fairness that is paid to every other person in America.  We want the right to see our loved one in the hospital, get half the house we paid for, have our expenses taxed fairly, and have the same rights as any other person does when they are considered to be a spouse.

We want the right to love who we want and be a part of their lives legally.  We have that right to pursue our happiness afforded to us by the United States Constitution.  It is illegal to deny us our rights.  It is wrong to.  People are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered; get over it.
