Staight People Support Equality – From OpenLeft.com
I knocked on doors and called in Maine, (0.00 / 0)and I used the script, but I never felt all that honest about it. I don’t support gay marriage because I’m so fond of gays–I don’t have gay friends or family–and I don’t support gay marriage because I’m so fond of marriage–though I am.
I support gay marriage because I support equal rights. I took my 4-year-old son to a rally, and explained to him that while a woman is allowed to marry a man, a man is not allowed to marry that very same man … just because he’s a boy.
That pissed him right off. How come a girl can marry Bill, but he isn’t allowed?
I guess I’m in a tiny fraction of a solipsistic minority, but I don’t see this is a gay issue. I don’t work on this issue for anyone except myself, my he’s-already-checking-out-girls-at-five-years-old son, and my country.
All of that said, this looks like a great tool. Almost as good as my personal conversational favorite: go batshit on them.
