It’s Not Just A “Gay” Thing

Gay/Same-Sex marriage is legal in ever state except Ohio, Michigan, Montana, both the Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Louisiana, Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina, Arizona, and Florida. That’s 19 out of 50 states. That means that roughly 62% of our country has legalized marriage.
So to every state I mentioned; to every state who refuses to legalize same sex marriage I have a few things to ask you. Do you plan on making marrying your cousin illegal? Because I know in Georgia, Florida, and South Carolina I could marry my first cousin, but if the love of my life was another woman than I would be denied. That’s just wrong on too many levels to count. Also in Kansas if my mother in law doesn’t like me, my husband could use that as grounds for divorce, but my gay friends can’t get married, so could you explain that to me? Mississippi and Tennessee I would like to know who the fuck you think you are, because not only do you decide what genders can get married, but if the clerk issuing the marriage license considers me an “imbecile” I can’t get married either?! What crawled up your ass and died?
Anyone offended by the things I just said? Good you should be! Every single person LGBTQ or otherwise deserves their basic civil liberties. No one deserves to be attacked harshly for something they can’t control. Many of the laws I just ridiculed were passed ages ago, and some aren’t even enforced while others were abolished. No one should be told who they can love, how they should feel, or otherwise. The subject of same-sex marriage isn’t a LGBTQ problem, it’s a humanity problem. We as people need to learn to open our minds before our mouths, learn to mind our own business, and stop pushing our own personal beliefs onto others.
Stand up for something America, because right now you’re falling for everything.

I survived my first mosh pit tonight. I have so much adrenaline and the worst head ache ever, but I’m so glad I did it. For the first time in my life I did something I wanted to do just because it was something I wanted to do. I didn’t second guess myself. I didn’t think about the bad things that could happen. I just did something I wanted to do without letting my anxiety rule my life.

Why Am I Here?

Do you think some people get to chose when they go? Like after a while they get sick or get old and after fighting life for so long they just say “okay it’s time” and then die? Or do you think death just happens and we don’t get any choice in the matter even if you try to kill yourself? Sometimes I wonder how I lived even though I’ve over dosed 4 times. I wonder why I’m here. There are people who deserve to live more than I do fighting to have just one more day, and four times I failed trying to kill myself. Why do I get to still be here when they die?
