Why is this still relevant? For example this “oh no, I can’t kiss or hold the hand of my girlfriend in public because we are lesbians and everybody will look at us.” Like fuck that shit, I want to kiss or act with my girlfriend in public like any other heterosexual couple does it. Or why do we have extra clubs and such? I am so tired of this shit.
The thing I really do love about the Closer video is that you can see men kissing women, women kissing women and men kissing men.

So I’ve almost devoured the book Annie On My Mind.
There’s a Greek legend—no, it’s in something Plato wrote—about how true lovers are really two halves of the same person. It says that people wander around searching for their other half, and when they find him or her, they are finally whole and perfect. The thing that gets me is that the story says that originally all people were really pairs of people, joined back to back, and that some of the pairs were man and man, some woman and woman, and others man and woman. What happened was that all of these double people went to war with the gods, and the gods, to punish them, split them all in two. That’s why some lovers are heterosexual and some are homosexual, female and female, or male and male.

I’m so glad about the fact that my family tolerates my homosexuality.
I wish my moderate Republican friends would simply be honest. They all say they’re voting for Romney because of his economic policies (tenuous and ill-formed as they are), and that they disagree with him on gay rights. Fine. Then look me in the eye, speak with a level clear voice, and say, “My taxes and take-home pay mean more than your fundamental civil rights, the sanctity of your marriage, your right to visit an ailing spouse in the hospital, your dignity as a citizen of this country, your healthcare, your right to inherit, the mental welfare and emotional well-being of your youth, and your very personhood.”
It’s like voting for George Wallace during the Civil Rights movements, and apologizing for his racism. You’re still complicit. You’re still perpetuating anti-gay legislation and cultural homophobia. You don’t get to walk away clean, because you say you “disagree” with your candidate on these issues.
—Author Doug Wright, addressing his Republican friends who are considering a vote for Mitt Romney.
