I hate to say this...

I needed a gay icon
But if I see Keith Olberman's commentary posted one more time today, I'm going to shove my foot up someone's ass.

I'll also refer you to nihilistic_kid's post on the subject.

While I realize it's nice for a MSNBC broadcaster to come out for gay marriage, he, like protesters on Saturday, will be largely ignored by the mainstream and condemned by the social conservatives.

And since someone on my friends list felt free to condemn anyone who won't be attending a protest on Saturday...

I have to work. Getting bent out of shape about something that happened in California doesn't pay the bills, doesn't put food on the table, and sure as hell doesn't get me any closer to being involved with someone who I'd actually be tempted to use the right Prop 8 took away.

While I agree that I think California was wrong in voting in Prop 8, I think that religious institutions should not have been pouring money into the campaign to pass it, this is also an issue CA is going to have to work out with itself. Particularly considering how many states currently have Amendments banning same-sex marriage amd the federal DOMA law. If you want to protest something, try those. They affect us much more than an injustice in CA.

Also, as has been pointed out previously, CA still has domestic partnerships, which while not enough, are still a damn sight better than what most of us mid-westerners qualify for.

Urf? Did I post in your journal complaining about it being the 10th post IN A ROW with just that video?

It's your right to post what you want in your journal, as long as it conforms to the legal shit LJ requires. If you want to post the video that's fine.

I just happen to be sick of seeing it pop up like a bad game of Whack-A-Mole on my friends page.

And yes, there's a lot of hating going around right now. On pretty much every side of the political continuum. Mainly since EVERYONE (myself included) has decided that if not everyone agrees with us, they must be evil.

I'm sick of it. I'm sick of reading the paper every morning and seeing letters either complaining about someone who hasn't even taken office yet or letters from the opposite side referring to the other letter writers as drooling mouth breathers unworthy of being considered human.

And I'll be honest and admit I don't like Keith very much. He pissed me off when he hosted SportsCenter on ESPN, and my opinion hasn't improved since then.

Well, yours did go up BEFORE I posted that threat, so your bootie is, as ever, safe from me.

What you do with your privates is no concern of mine. Brazilian or a landing strip?

I don't know if the vid shows up in e-mail (I know HTML and LJ comments don't do well together), but...

Well yeah, but I get e-mail notices of comments, and vids don't show up in 'em:)
