Pretty Good Thursday

As a brief follow-up to my comments yesterday, I notices a number if interesting and unique variations on the FB "show your support for same-sex marriage" theme.

Here's one I like:

And another unique, cute one...

Anyway, I hope the justices do the right thing....we shall see how it all plays out.

One friend asked if I would ever want to get married again and the answer is that I've always wanted to be a bride, which kind of implies that there's a marriage involved.  I'd be happy to start by finding a person to hold hands with so marriage isn't something I think about often.  But I do think about Equality all the time and creating a world where there is equal opportunity for non-traditional families, where people don't have to hide or accept something "less" as simply the norm - now THAT passion has never subsided and I don't expect that it ever will.  It is a life fuel.

There's a situation in Arizona that I find deplorable.  A state legislator there, who obviously didn't have anything productive to do, introduced a bill specifically aimed at trans people that would make it a crime for a person to use a bathroom different from the one appropriate for their birth sex.  (Story here)  I didn't realize that this was such a pressing issue that it needed legislation to address it.

I transitioned in Arizona, and still have roots there.  I found it disgusting the way the state approached immigration.   And I find it disgusting how they're handling this.  Shame on those who give this kind of crap credibility in any form whatsoever.  Unfortunately, I don't think that this assault on rights, and on personhood, will end up before the Supreme Court anytime soon.

I can't believe that tomorrow is Good Friday, and that  Sunday is Easter.  Easters past have had some significant impacts on my life.  The lowest day in my entire life was an Easter.  This year, I expect that it will pretty much be a non-event.  I expect to have dinner with some local friends who are like family. I suspect I'll have more to say on it between now and then.

My alma mater, Syracuse University, plays Indiana this evening in the NCAA Basketball championships.  It's too bad it starts too late....I expect I'll be in bed by then.

I like the Star Trek one myself...


They changed the law. It now states that it's LEGAL to discriminate against transgenders in Arizona. Scary times.

I hope that this weekend finds you happy and healthy. :)
