I Support Gay Love

This past week has been a landmark one in the gay rights movements.  While some states came closer to allowing same sex marriage, prospective Obama-2012 voters lashed out at the President for his lack of support and failed campaign promises to the community.  The week was rounded up by a former football star commenting that allowing gay marriage to happen would create utter "anarchy".

In light of all this, I would like to re-post a portion of a post I wrote a couple of years ago, "Not Special, Just Equal", when I was dissenting with a fellow HuffPo commenter on whether or not gay rights mattered at all.

The end of the post goes to something I have been saying all along - this is not about sexual partners, but LOVE and who a person can and will love.  That seems to get forgotten by the anti-gay rights folks when they are spewing their often ignorant and bigoted hate.

I don't just support gay marriage or, even, all gay rights.  I support GAY LOVE (or, better, LGBT LOVE).

Here is the end of that post, reiterating this very stance:

What bothers me, too, is that in all the hubbub and din, all the people decrying "gay sex" as deviant and gay people as aberrant for engaging in it - just for larks, of course - is the idea of Love.  Being gay isn't just about - isn't really at all about - who you have sex with or want to have sex with.  It's about who you can and will Love.  Yes, homosexuals are sexually attracted to the same sex.  But do not forget, that attraction - just like with straight people - can and does lead to more than just meaningless sex.  It becomes relationships, it becomes lasting partnerships, and long-term affairs.  It becomes Love.

And that is what this battle is really about.  No one can choose who they fall in love with - not straight people, gay persons, bi individuals, or anything in between.  And, therefore, it is not a choice for the lesbian who falls in love with the woman who becomes her partner of 20 years or the gay man who falls head over heels for the person he knows is his soulmate, no more than it is a choice for the woman who marries her high school sweetheart or the man who rekindles a romance with the woman he never got over from college.  We don't choose who we love...love has it's own agenda.

The most beautiful thing about this is that Love always wins.  It will prevail; it always does.  And gay people will win their rights.  I guarantee it.

In the meantime, to all the naysayers, I say think long and hard about the reasons you are against homosexuals or gay rights/marriage.  Remember what this country stands for, and take some time to re-read the teachings of the man you base your religion on.  You have a "choice", now - and the choice is to choose acceptance, understanding, and compassion over denial, ignorance, and hatred.  You like to ask, "What would Jesus do?" and so I posit that to you now - what, indeed?

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I feel I'd by no means understand. It seems too complex and extremely large for me. I am having a look ahead to your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

    Thanks for your thoughts. One thing really noticed is that banks as well as financial institutions know the dimensions and spending practices of consumers as well as understand that a lot of people max out and about their cards around the trips. They prudently take advantage of this particular fact and start flooding ones inbox in addition to snail-mail box having hundreds of 0 APR credit card offers just after the holiday season concludes. Knowing that should you be like 98 in the American open public, you'll rush at the chance to consolidate credit card debt and shift balances to 0 interest rate credit cards.

    I've learned a number of important things through your post. I'd personally also like to mention that there may be a situation in which you will get a loan and never need a co-signer such as a Fed Student Aid Loan. However, if you are getting that loan through a conventional bank or investment company then you need to be made ready to have a cosigner ready to help you. The lenders may base their very own decision on the few variables but the greatest will be your credit ratings. There are some creditors that will in addition look at your work history and come to a decision based on that but in most cases it will depend on your score.
