Marriage Equality Still on the Line

Another day, another Constitutional Convention. The right of consenting adults to marry is under consideration--under fire--again, this time on Wednesday, July 12.

It's not too late to do your part to preserve equal marriage rights for all families. The good folks at MassEquality have ways you can help--check it out.

Don't kid yourself: this is our era's civil rights issue, whether you're straight, gay, or bi. This is about allowing adults to live their lives with the people they love, with the full protection of the law. Remember when interracial marriage was illegal because, after all, it "went against longstanding tradition"?

We live and learn. Make your state proud--do the right thing.

The ConCon was recessed until Nov. 9, which I'm happy about -- even more time for people to realize that two years after same-sex marriage was legalized, the Apocalypse has yet to come.

You're so right. I was there for part of the afternoon, and despite the rain, it felt great to be among so many people of good will. On our side of the street, that is. The other side ... not so much. :-)

I know, I know! I don't know what to do! If this keeps up, husband will be getting haircuts more than twice a year or something. :-)
