Why do you "need" to be married? Isn't it ok that I accept you two as a couple?
RR - Why does anyone "need" anything? Do people with the first name Jessica really "Need" to use the public bathroom? What if the government and all humanity decided that all people with the name Jessica didn't "Need" to use those facilities publicly. It was fine if Jessica's privately used the water closet, but not in public. OOH no! And to make sure that Jessica's didn't try to find a way to get around that little "need", there were laws put in place that specifically prevented Jessica's from utilizing that nice little convenience (so to speak). Now, every other human being without the name Jessica could use the facilities as often and as much as they wanted. There were even religious leaders who actively condemned people named Jessica and their use of the public restrooms. Perhaps even picketing facilities known to secretly allow people named Jessica in. And these religious groups were even pouring millions of dollars into supporting laws and initiatives in individual states, because "Jessicas' using public bathrooms are a stain on humanity and the whole reason all bad things happen to good people!" Can I stop now? Do you get the analogy? It's plain ridiculous to separate out someone just because they are different. Lesbians and gays and all of us don't "Need" to get married, but if we choose to, we should have the right just as much as any other person named Jessica has the right to use a public bathroom.
Why do you have to make such a BIG deal about being gay?
RR - I always wonder, when someone asks me this question, what they are really asking? Because, really, I'm a little confused about it. That's like asking someone, "Why do you have to make such a BIG deal out of being straight?" Because straight people really make a big deal about it. Have you ever noticed that? The guys invite their friends to come over for a beer and watch "football, racing, baseball, (insert sport here)." and the women are forever sending invitations to this or that thing or party with all the "Girls", no boys allowed. and we'll trash talk, and look at hot guys all night! Talk about making a big deal of your sexuality. I can't remember the last party my girlfriend and I were invited to that said we were gonna talk trash about our friends and look at hot lesbians all night. Well, ok, maybe the last Real L-Word party..... And that last Soccer game was AWESOME! So . . . there is my answer! Because you straight people shouldn't have all the FUN! We want to join into mainstream too and be just as backstabbing and conniving and superficial as you are! Hey, did I say that in my outside voice? 'nuff saidThat's it for this week! And remember folks, when I use the phrase "you straight people" it's a direct turn around to those individuals who use the phrase "you gay people". As if we're all the same. If you don't use it, it doesn't apply to you. I don't wanna hear any whining!
Don't forget to kiss your loved ones, they deserve it! sofn
