Thank God the Prop 8 law has been repealed in California. I think it's shameful that in 2010 this kind of non sense even happened. Love is beautiful and should be celebrated. When my dad was a young man he was sent to South Africa with the UN to do some work. As a black Nigerian man he had to have a special document placed in this passport saying he was an honorary white man, so he would be allowed to stay in hotels and offices for his diplomatic work. This was in the 60s and an outrage. Our children will look at Prop 8 with equal disgust and amazement about how this kind of discrimination was even allowed.

Now I watch a lot of E! news I love my Britney and Jersey Shore breaking news gossip. However, I have noticed every time there is an image of a gay celeb couple kissing, the image is blurred out, which is so offensive to me. Why should Lindsey Lohan snogging her girlfriend Sam or America Idol's Adam Lambert snogging some poor unsuspecting backing dancer be blurred out when the likes of the Jersey Shore posse having girls drink shots through the ripple of their 8 packs (I kid you not) and them snogging random hos. I think this type of double standards and subconscious bigotry is really a problem. I look forward to the day when people are judged for who they are and not who they want to share their lives and make a home with. Amen.  


  1. Funny you mention this, I had a guest at my birthday party last week who mentioned he was severely homophobic (I don't even know how the topic came up). He can't stand 2 men together but he's up for girl on girl action. Seeing as I have a free and accepting mind, I ended asking him to leave my house. I can't stand double standards or bigotry of any kind. God doesn't judge us on who we sleep with, but who we are.!

  2. Amen to that. It's really strange isn't it? I think it's fear and ignorance really that make people in this day and age act like that. Thank you so much for the comment!

  4. I hope that it stays gone. (It didn't creep back when I wasn't looking did it? :O )

    I'd much rather homophobes were at least honest with themselves instead of using God as an excuse. It makes me feel annoyed that people presume to know what God wants in that sense, I'd much rather assume God wants us to love and treat everyone with respect whether we "agree" with their lifestyle or not. I can't imagine a God that would judge someone for who they love, and it saddens me that others can.
