VTKNITBOY RESPONDS TO PROP 8 POST
i'm a gay white boy. thanks for sharing this interesting and really informative perspective.
some of the issues/perspectives she brought up are right on the spot in terms of how i as a gay white man perceived the issue of other minorities supporting gay rights. i used to wonder why blacks wouldn't support gay rights--cuz i perceived that since we both were minorities that would bind us together.
It's only been recently that i've become more aware of the the many layers of differences we have, and that it's not easily defined, understood, or explained.
on the gay marriage issue: i'm not hung up on the issue of being 'married', BUT i DO care about having the same FEDERAL rights that straight couples have: death benefits, inheritance, and thousands of other things that straight people take for granted.
thanks for sharing this! i will pass it on to others.
ANYBODY ELSE WANT TO POST THEIR OPINION?
