Many Happy returns!
One year ago today, I did not spontaneously become gay. I did not divorce my wife of five years. My son did not start wearing a dress. No one has tried to marry a dog. The earth did not swallow Manhattan. The Sun was not blotted from the skies. Christians were not rounded up in the streets and executed. Roving bands of gay men did not descend upon fearful straight males and convert them. Lesbians did not burn their bras (well, OK, some of them probably did, those things hurt!).
Basically, the only thing that happened was that homosexuals were allowed to legally express the love they feel for one another.
If this disturbs you, TOO BAD! No one cares about your hurt feelings at not being allowed to discriminate. The rest of us will go on enjoying ourselves and I’m still going to my first same-sex marriage this weekend!
