I’m still reeling from the passage of Prop 8 funded by the Catholics and Mormans and actualized by the Black community.
My query- how the Hell do I threaten your lives ?
I have my honey. I curl up with her when we go to bed. I scream at her when I think she’s on the wrong page and I hold her when she is hurt. She does the same for me. That is love.
Tonight Kieth Olberman did a special comment concerning this issue. I wound up crying because this is how I see my relationship with Betts.
Yes, I can get angry with her, but every moment I’m thinking of her and wondering what’s going down. It matters to me if something bad happens to her. This is the person I trust to lay next to me at night. This is the person I trust with my life and my health care. Betty is my friend, and I trust her.
This is what Olberman was talking about- we are friends and live as a couple. We share a life… we have friends.
Never in my life have I felt so secure.
Never in my life have I felt desired and loved as I do now.
There is nothing that the two of us has that endangers what you others have. We laugh and cry together. We scream at each other. Some nights I sleep on the sofa, but in the end we have love for each other. What is wrong with that?
Why do I need the approval of some mythical creature in order to sleep and feel safe?
Why do I need to have the approval of Humans for that which I believe is Hallowed? That which my Goddess and my heart tells me is right?
What does it matter that I chose Betty as my partner? Any skin off your ass? Did it kill your Jesus? No, it didn’t. I found someone I dearly love, and she is the light of my life. Hers will be the last face I will see as I die. She will be the last person who touches me as I head to another world. My soul is safe in her embrace.
So for you fuckmooks who voted for Prop 8 in Cali, and for the rest of you who only know what your minister tells you, I live in the holiness of a bond that can only be achieved by two people who are in love. Can only happen when YOU make that decision to love unconditionally.Maybe one day you can reach that standard.
So babies, curl up with your honeys tonight. And tell the cross-wearers to STFU and get out of your lives.
