Daily Ranting

I'm tired and irritable. And a little embarrassed at my state, which apparently refused to recognize same-sex marriage today. How the heck does New York of all places refuse this?

I normally don't go all crazy on this here on my blog, but I'm just sitting here, astounded. I know the entire state is not metro NY - but you've got to be kidding.

And quite frankly, don't we have far more pressing issues to worry about than whether or not two men or two women are planning to spend the rest of their lives together?

I've said this before - this is not a 'straight' right. It should not be a 'gay' right. The right to marry should be a human right.

Wake me when it's 2008 and we can try this again.

It's absolutely rediculous that this is what so many politicians in this country are worried about.

Look this is how well we've done with marriage and sex laws so far.

Example: In Minnesota, it is illegal for any man to have sexual intercourse with a live fish.

As opposed to a dead one? That's creepy.

How about: In Alabama, it's against the law for a man to seduce "a chaste woman by means of temptation, deception, arts, flattery or a promise of marriage.

Wow, the high school boys must have a hard time there...

In the state of Washington there is a law against having sex with a virgin under any circumstances (including the wedding night).
