"The results of more than a century of anthropological research on households, kinship relationships, and families, across cultures and through time, provide no support whatsoever for the view that either civilization or viable social orders depend upon marriage as an exclusively heterosexual institution. Rather, anthropological research supports the conclusion that a vast array of family types, including families built upon same-sex partnerships, can contribute to stable and humane societies."

"Queer people do not need to offer excuses or defend their own existence. If one could become queer by simply waking up one morning and deciding to become queer, for a day, for an hour, it wouldn’t change the fact that being queer is just as good, as valid, as worthy, as being straight. Providing straight people with reasons or excuses for our queerness simply confirms their suspicions that our sexuality really is their business and that we need to justify our existence to them. This allows heterosexists to continue to believe there is something superior about heterosexuality, and that being queer is a deviation from some kind of normal or default sexuality. There isn’t and it’s not.

We don’t need to justify ourselves to anyone. We don’t need a reason to be queer. Maybe we were born this way, maybe we weren’t. Maybe sexuality is fluid for some people and not for others. It’s totally irrelevant either way. The message we need to send to heterosexists is not that our sexuality was foisted upon us and that they should be “tolerant” and “understanding”. The message is: our sexuality is perfectly valid and none of your business, we offer you no excuses, and we are never going away."

“I got  married, I came out publicly. But I had to, you know? I mean it was like  gays can get married, yay! Prop 8, I’m a second-class citizen, what the  fuck?! As a black woman, I’m really low on the chain, but as a GAY  black woman, I’m even lower! There are so many things I’ve had to do as a  gay person that I don’t have to do as a black person. I didn’t have to  come out black to my parents. Can you imagine that? ‘Mom, Dad, I need to  talk to you about something. I just want to tell you, I’m black.’  ‘What?!’  ‘I’m black, that’s just the way it is.’ ‘Oh Lord, oh, anything  but black! Give her cancer Lord! Anything but black! You know what,  you’ve been hanging around black people too much. And they got you  thinking you black.’ ‘No Ma, it’s just the way I am, I was born this  way.’ ‘Oh, don’t give me that! The bible says Adam and Eve, not Adam and  Mary J. Blige!’ ‘I’m sorry, It’s just how I am.’ ‘What did I do? What  did I do? I let you watch Soul Train! Was it Soul Train?’ ‘No Ma, it  wasn’t Soul Train…’

If Michele Bachman weren’t doing so well in the polls I would have a more fun time listening to her garbage. Seeing as shes coming in second right now, her words just scare me because I know there are people out there who agree with her and who obviously vote for her. I don’t know if that makes sense to you, but take Huntsman for example. I feel free to laugh at his political ad campaign of a man on a dirt bike in the desert because I know he wont be president. Perhaps I’m just loony today. Anyway, point being. Michele Bachman scares me because she has a large following. I will be developing stress ulcers if she wins the Republican spot. Just giving you a nice forewarning.

Last time I checked, bondage was actually super awesome. 

If she gets the nomination, the revolution is happening. And it will involve a great deal of bondage.
