What is life
I did read an article about that in Qweerty (article HERE). Although a step in the right direction, it is actually only a judge (R) in south Florida ruling that the ban is unconstitutional, but that ruling only affects the county in which he sits. HOWEVER, our twat of an Attorney General Pam Bondi (R), (don’t even get me started on that prude) immediately filed an appeal which included an automatic stay, so at this point nothing will come of it until the appeals process is finished. Knowing the leadership of this ultra conservative, can’t count votes, hanging chad, back-woods, redneck ass state that I live in (for now), this will NOT get through the appeals process and nothing will change. However, on a positive note, in the upcoming elections, a law will be on the ballot that overturns that 2008 ban for the State itself. I normally try to be optimistic on most things, but tbh I think FL is about 5-10 years away from that. I could be wrong, but I think it will take that time to get enough of the people of my generation and following me to actually go vote and stop letting the right wing baby boomers run the show here. Very soon I will be gone from this state, in a year gone from this country and of course I want things to change, but the fact that we even have to talk about this, or they are still having debates about this is OUT OF FUCKING CONTROL. Why does the U.S. have to do this every fucking 50 years. It was women, then it was blacks, now it’s LGBT, like WHEN THE FUCK are the they going to actually SEPARATE church and state, WHEN THE FUCK are they going to uphold the Bill of Rights and The Constitution, WHEN THE FUCK are the people WE elect going to stop taking away OUR rights just because we are different than them? Isn’t the fact that at present, hypothetically if Aidan and I were “civil partners” and he died, everything of his/ours that we shared, could be taken away from me, everything that we built could be given to someone else other than me, his assets gone, his last wishes stripped from my control and the way I KNOW he would have wanted them handled…ISN’T THAT A FUCKING HATE CRIME???? The U.S. better get with the rest of it’s “allies” and get into the 21st century, or this country will die a quick and sudden death. I’ll be in Canada, so whatever……
