Dear DS9,

I am quite enjoying this same-sex relationship/marriage commentary episode. It's fun. And, thus far, actually good. And I love that the taboo isn't the same-sex aspect but, instead, the "Trills that knew one another" aspect.

I'd appreciate it a lot more, though, if your 'verse had same-sex relationships in the first place. Cop-outs are annoying. Even if you were written over a decade ago.

Grumbling and--WAIT, WHY DOES KIRA HAVE PURPLE HAIR IN THIS SCENE, IS IT THE LIGHTING OR IS IT ACTUALLY HER HAIR, YES I HAVE THE ATTENTION SPAN OF A RABBIT

-Me

1. I wake up this morning and hear that Maine's voters are bigots who've voted to repeal the law legalizing same-sex marriage.

2. I go to my 9 AM class and learn more about pay gaps and horizontal and vertical segregation in the workforce, resulting in women getting screwed over across the board.

3. It's cold and rainy when I leave class.

4. I need to take all my pictures off photobucket, because it hates me.

Stop the world, I want to get off.

The fact that in the future, assuming I ever find someone worth marrying, there's a 50/50 chance I won't be able to because of completely ridiculous and bigoted constitutional amendments makes me more than a little furious.

("I love you." "I love you too." "Marry me?" "I'd love to! So who's getting the sex change, you or me?")

'Cos even though I voted "No" on Florida's fun little version of Proposition 8, it still has a very very good chance of getting through.

...At least there's always Massachusetts, right?

The best part is, it makes a great argument for the other side.

"She said that mommies and daddies have to get married first [to have a baby]."
[My Addition"] "Well, honey, you can also have two daddies, and we'd love to raise you in a safe and steady marriage situation. But you see, there's this new constitutional amendment..."

Also, what kind of little girl thinks people only get married for babies? For little kids, marriage=love Disney style, with maybe a baby sometime in the future. I don't think you'd find one mainstream USA kid who thinks Shrek and Fiona got together because they really just wanted to make little Ogres.
