Dear North Carolina: FUCK. YOU.

14 May

Who the hell do you think you are, legislating your religious beliefs?

Denying gay Americans the right to marriage is like denying black Americans the right to integrated public education. Remember that? Everyone was up in arms 60 years ago when schools were first integrated. They touted segregation on the basis of class and race. Look at us now; we scoff at people who still follow those ideals. While ignorant assholes are still heiling Hitler, my classrooms are filled with children from a variety of faiths and ethnicities, with so many different skin colors that we could single-handedly represent every foundation at the Clinique counter.

Remember when women were sub-standard humans, denied the right to vote? Last time I checked, a woman was nearly elected president in 2008. Bet American men circa 1900 would have found that revolting.

What’s my point? (Because there always is one, isn’t there?)

My point is that you, NC, are a breeding ground for ignorance. You’re showing the rest of the country that you condone discrimination based on a physiological difference. You’re acting like the Americans of yore who condoned slavery and indentured servitude. You’re acting like the Americans who tried to prevent women’s suffrage and keep black citizens out of schools, parks, and restaurants. History will record you as a bunch of ignorant fucks who denied voting, tax-paying Americans a basic human right.

You shame me, North Carolina.

    Ah, Ladies, Ladies, Ladies:

    Surely you’re able to understand the behind of this (in other places, people would say, “ . . .what’s behind all of this . . .”):

    If two women or two men can’t marry, that lessens the risk that a cousin, or sometimes, a brother or sister, will be taken out of the available pool. Brothers, sisters, and especially, cousins (yum, yum!) are principal, primo, first-rate couplin’ fodder in North Carolina. If woman pairs with woman, it could be Lem’s cousin (or at least, one of ‘em), leaving poor Lem not just in a lurch, but down in the holler, too, jus’ a holdin’ his own thang. Or, two men could diminish Enoch’s possibilities of a night’s recreation.

    That’s one of the reasons that North Carolina is in the cellar of primary education and money spent on it: if the kiddies learn something foolish at a young age, like, say, choice and ability to discern and judgment-making capacities, why, hay-yell’s bay-yells, they might just run off when they see Luke a-comin’ at ‘em on the back of a goat. And both the goat and Luke would be at risk of loss .

      It’s still legal for North Carolina residents to marry their cousins. With that in mind, I’m going to give mine a call…you know, the Radiologist? She’s pretty and single. Maybe my brother, The Elder, is looking for a change…

        (Cackle . . .) . . .and if he thought he could (oops! Sorry for this . . .) pull it off, he just might (sorry, again . . .) take a shot.

        Hmmm.

We'd love to hear your thoughts
