Gay Marriage & What It Means For Me

Yesterday the media reported that the supreme court will hear two cases involving gay marriage. From my understanding one case deals with federal benefits for same sex couples and the other deals with the constitutionality of same sex marriage. Hopefully members of the supreme court will uphold the constitution by acknowledging our unalienable rights and equal protection under the law.

We all know this case will be a slam dunk because the people standing in the way of gay marriage have no right to do so. We cannot tell another individual who they should or should not marry.

We also know the issue of gay marriage made it to the supreme court with lighting speed because gay WHITE people want to get married. If this were an issue solely involving people of color it would take about 10-15 years before the case made it to the supreme court...but that's neither here nor there...

I haven't mentioned it on this blog, but I was planning on proposing to Yellow Bone on New Years's Eve. Hopefully she will say yes and your favorite blogger will be getting married in 2013! Maybe...just maybe...we might be able to get married right here in Georgia! Let's keep our fingers crossed.
