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?

    Social media, blogging and write-up advertising and marketing present productive approaches to deliver desire establish a
    existence for your model and your corporation and build a impressive
    inbound marketing funnel. As with all kinds of Web internet marketing,
    on the net monitoring and analytics help make this variety of outreach
    accountable. They retain you on track, permitting you know if you
    are utilizing the most efficient strategy. Extra so than with other styles of advertising
    and marketing, the key to success listed here is relevancy.

    and marketing, etc.

    As I mentioned in an earlier blog, the jury is still out on the accomplishment of ads on social media websites.
    There are specific challenges by affiliation that advertisers are not cozy with.
    An ad on Fb or Twitter could be positioned
    up coming to some pretty controversial put up or impression. It is
    a chance the advertiser requires. The web sites by themselves are producing new profits styles that are not advertisement-oriented.
    Some offer you game titles on their platforms, other individuals
    offer tailored digital items to their users, and others such as LinkedIn supply high quality companies for a every month rate.

    Twitter will be charging for distinct analytical tools. 1
    matter that is very clear is that the income model for social media web pages is not nonetheless very clear at all.

    But, social media web pages offer outreach to a enormous variety of visitors,
    followers, close friends, and probable prospects. Employing them is
    a main component of any natural inbound advertising and
    marketing campaign. The natural and organic strategy is much less
    expensive and commonly delivers far more authenticity and relevancy,
    but it does just take time and a nicely-considered-out sport strategy.

    You require to know your goal market place and in which they seem for the variety of
    info you happen to be presenting. If your method is a mixture
    of report advertising and marketing, social media and blogging, you will need to build a consistent, cohesive information and give suitable written content, but
    you also have to establish relationships.

    When you have content material centered social media and blogging approach
    in spot, now is the time to individual on your own from your competition. Include classic community
    relations to the combine. Use press protection to give you and your organization the
    arrive at, validation and reliability that only media can give you.

    Turbo cost your inbound on the web campaign with a potent media relations campaign and enjoy
    your corporation expand.
