On Tom Corbett’s False Allegations

It was Friday that Tom Corbett, the Republican governor of Pennsylvania, compared gay marriage to incest in a television interview. His completely false allegations have very much shocked the progressive population. To say that he is ignorant would be a harsh understatement. He is not ignorant because he is fully aware of what he has said. He has compared same sex marriage to an exceedingly taboo practice that has not been legal in this county since the beginning of its independence. He has made gay marriage seem disgusting and wrong by juxtaposing with incest. It is quite obvious how he feels about gay marriage and homosexuality in general. Sorry, Pennsylvania. The wait will soon be over, but for now, hang in there.

A Few Words On DOMA and California

I am so happy that the Defense of Marriage Act was finally repealed and that California is, once again, a state that recognizes gay marriage. This is going to greatly affect the many lives of gay men and women who currently populate California and for the  future generations who choose to inhabit the state. Although California is the 13th state to legalize gay marriage, we still have  37 states left. In light of recent events, I am now much more confident that we can achieve this goal. However, I fear that certain groups of people, the same people who are afraid of what same-sex marriage might do to the traditional institution of marriage, will gain even more power and support than they already have. Regardless, I will not let that deter me. I will march, I will fight, I will write until everyone gets the equal opportunity that they deserve.
