"Every single American: Gay, Straight, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender; every single American deserves to be treated equally in the eyes of the law and in the eyes of our society. It's a pretty simple proposition." - Barack Obama
Thank you President Obama. All people ARE created equal. History was made today and I was so proud of Our President for stating his opinion, even tho it may not be the most popular opinion. Human rights folks.
it's a simple proposition. every single american deserves to be treated equally in the eyes of the law.
Every single american deserves to be treated EQUALLY in the eyes of the law and in the eyes of our society. Simple.
It's a straightforward reason why everyone needs to be treated equally. Something like this would be groundbreaking on a network like MTV.
Every single American deserves to be treated equally. It's a pretty simple proposition.
I never thought I would be putting a Barack Obama quote on my wall....
Gay rights go Obama
Funny, yet oh so not funny.
Political, Truth, So True, Funny Stuff, Funnies, Humor, News Works
This pic is funny but its also sad because it shows the truth of how the news twist any little thing they see
Funny, yet oh so not funny. This is why I read the BBC so I get some perspective that hasn't been completely polluted by political ideology and hidden agendas.
Funny... but frightfully accurate.-American TV describing politics
How the news works. It'd be funnier if it weren't so true.
How the news works.... Funny but sadly the truth
Not into politics but this made me laugh

Gay Marriage, Stuff, Random, Funny, Now, Things, Cousins, U.S. States
The Rothschild Bankers are known for marrying cousins so not to dilute the bloodline and keep the money in the family,and they run the world!Maybe we've been lied to the whole time!Maybe marrying cousins is a good thing humankind after all did start from a small beginning?
Pretty sad! (Marrying your cousin is legal in exponentially more states than gay marriage) Um excuse me...? Gross.
Seriously though! When will we stop the discrimination and allow homosexuals the same rights afforded to heterosexuals?? And also, we really need to do something about this cousin thing! The kids are going to come out with extra chromosomes and limbs and stuff!
Pretty sad! (Marrying your cousin is legal in exponentially more states than gay marriage)<--- so... I'm a little annoyed that any state allows this, but California??? Really???
gay marriage: Very funny, and sad! Note by Roger Carrier, a straight male, age 68, and married 44 years. Gay marriage is coming, and it will be good for America. We are now at 59% favoring it, and that number will grow over the next couple of years. Loudly proud of my LGBTQ friends! Roger
States that allow gay marriage vs states that allow you to marry your cousin. wow this is disturbing!! you can marry your cousin but gays cant!
States that allow gay marriage vs. States that allow first cousins to marry. This is just absolutely fabulous. [queer, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, LGBT]
And I thought America couldn't get any worse... I'm not against marrying your cousin or gay marriage btw (Marrying your cousin is legal in exponentially more states than gay marriage)
Gay Marriage v. Marrying Your Cousin too funny!!!
Gay Marriage, Stuff, Equal Rights, Idiot, Explain Gay, Explaining Gay
The problem: just keep going. introduce siblings Brenda and Brian. Then Bob, Tom and Jenny. All capable adults giving their consent and by this logic, denied their equal rights just like Adam and Steve. Of course it opens the doors..
Explaining Gay Rights (to idiots who assume that legalization will somehow lead to marriages between adults and children, animals, corpses and/or inanimate objects.) The thing here is that this case has NOTHING to do with religion.
Explaining gay rights to people who make the huge leap that if we legalize gay marriage it will open the doors to all sorts of ridiculous things like marrying your toaster, children, the dead, or your dog.
Explaining Gay Rights (to idiots who assume that legalization will somehow lead to marriages between adults and children, animals, corpses and/or inanimate objects.)
Explaining gay rights to an idiot. My favorite all the "fears opening the door to people marrying toasters/animals/children" was the same excuses people didn't want to allow mixed race marriages.
"How To Explain Gay Rights To An Idiot" - I guess this explains why I can't marry my kitchenaid mixer no matter how much I may love it.

Our marriage was once illegal too.

Gay Marriage - Amazing and oh so tragic, how cruel people are to other people...many in the name of religion, which they won't admit has pagan roots! They are in such denial while many suffer! There is change, but there shouldn't be the NEED for it.
There are some who STILL want interracial, gay, lesbian and polyamorous relationships deemed illegal. WHY do others feel the need to control another living, intelligent, feeling, human being from living the life they desire and deserve? Human rights for everyone!!!!
Marriage Equality for ALL regardless of race or sex. To think that Aj and I once upon a time wouldn't of had the option to get married.. Huh- really puts things in a different light.
If you love them, love them. If those that love you don't approve, two things will happen either their love for you will open their mind & heart or not. Either way you need to stand in your truth & love who you want <3
Marriage equality. Remember when interracial marriage was illegal? That was wrong, too. #interracial #homosexual #gay #marriage #lesbian #LGBTQ #equality #marriage_equality #gay_marriage
Check out this article to get caught up to speed on the debate of gay marriage! This is an abstract connection to the fact that to people who don't have a particular color or class can't get married.

I miss not only who I thought he was but also who I knew he could be. The potential I saw and the faith I had in him.... A shame he didn't have that same faith in himself, in me or in our relationship :(
Don't miss him...someone who would put me first above the rest....treat me special, care about what I thought or felt....guess not and that is what hurts most...being last on someone else's list.
I do miss him. I also miss who I thought he was. That is why it is so hard.
I miss the you I thought you were, the you I fell in love with.
Eh, I don't really miss who I thought he was either
....people not being who you thought they were.
I don't miss him, I miss who I THOUGHT he was!

Girl truths: Is fat really the worst thing a human can be? Is fat worse than vindictive, jealous, shallow, vain, boring, evil or cruel? Not to me. ~J.K. Rowling
J.K. Rowling. I think this was back when people were complaining that characters in her book (like Dudley) were fat AND mean, so they thought that she implied that all fat people are mean.... at least I'm pretty sure that's why she had this quote, hah.
I ended up deleting this picture off FB a while ago because (non-ED) friends were making a joke of it and saying 'I bet JK Rowling has never been fat'... However, I still find it inspirational from an ED perspective.

Life, God, Quotes, Judge, Truth, Thought, So True, Things
Comments like these really upset me...in that just because I do not agree with same sex marriage, or think that homosexuality is "okay" in the eyes of God does NOT mean that I HATE these people. God has not commanded that we hate people who do things wrong or live in ways that are not compliant to his will. He loves the sinners the same as the righteous....but that doesn't change what it is.
my thoughts exactly. i believe in God. homosexuality is a sin, along with a MILLION things i have done in my life. God's is the only judgement that counts.
Do you seriously believe God will judge someone for loving a person of the same sex but will not judge you for gating someone you have never even met?
If there were a God I doubt they'd give two sh1ts about who falls in love, but probably isn't down with the whole hatred and judgement thing.
God lives in every person. Means not in a group or a "race". In every person! That means... for all the retards... WE ARE DEFINETLY 100% EQUAL. Even by the bible!!!
I am a Christian. I firmly believe in God and while I fail Him daily as I am human, I trust that His will shall be done. I do not understand many things in this life but I do believe in & support love, companionship & happiness. I personally love many different folks and because of all of these things the photo here really reflects my thoughts..........None of us are the judge nor the jury when this life comes to an end.
So true - I don't think God judges, only loves. But I like this msg :)
TRUTH: not a persons job to judge

Quotes and thoughts to live by
Why is this even an issue? We let murderers, rapist and other bad people have rights. But people want to make a big deal about two people of the same sex wanting to be together. Even if your religious beliefs disagree...it is between them and God. Jesus is peace and not hate. You do not have to hate to disagree.
Support Gay, Life, Human Rights, Quotes, Thought, Support Human, Things
"Yes, I support gay rights. No, I am not gay." I support all humans' rights. Part of 'the golden rule.' Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. If you want certain rights for yourself, support the same rights for everyone. http://www.yuricareport.com/Parody%20and%20Humor/OpenLetterToDrLaura.html
Yes I support Gay rights no I'm not gay, it is called showing them respect because they are humans too with a different view on life and that is okay :)
'Yes, I support civil rights./No, I'm not black.' Would that work? Human rights are a good thing, but why feel the need to put in a disclaimer?
You don't have to be gay to support gay rights, just like you don't have to be a woman (or hate men!) to be a feminist, as I explained to a young friend of mine.
In some churches, such as the Westboro Baptist Church, there is a belief that not only those who are gay are going to hell but also those who support gay rights. I find this notion preposterous, where is the line drawn between sinner and saint when it comes to homosexuality and gay rights?
"Yes, I support gay rights. No, I am not gay." I support all humans' rights. Part of 'the golden rule.' Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
so what? #GayRights #Gay #Rights

Quote with picture about We were born in a time when if something was broken, we would fix it, not throw it away
Sayings, Inspiration, Life, Quotes, Truth, So True, Things, Marriage
Love isn't even like this anymore, people over use as a saying then actually meaning it, I live for that cute shit, cheesy shit I dig it. Being funny and a complete nerd with someone is definitely something, living life by the small things that are so big capture our hearts.
So true... maybe this is why I love classic TV. If only we could go back to the days where life was simple and we had great idols, solid family values and marriage was forever. Can we rewind?
Marriage Advice Quotes | Quotes About Relationships Being Worth It- People don't fix things anymore... We're all "disposable" these days....
So true!! My Grandparents went through so much - the death of a child, my grandpa off to war, and not seeing my grandmother for 2-3 years while in service, not seeing his own newborn daughter till she was 3...the list goes on. But, they stayed married and in love until he passed away, after 57 years of marriage. <3 They are an inspiration to me!
I hope God blesses us with a long life together. Fixing things might be a lot of work, but it sure is worth every second. Imagine after 65 years how great marriage could be! :)
I love this! I'm constantly saying we live in a disposable society - one where we want instant gratification and when things get tough we quit! Come on people FIT IT!
So true, it bothers me to know the times we live in now marriage is something that's treated so lightly.
FIX the marriage you are in! Truth. Inspiring and Depressing at the same time.

Inspiration, Life, Quotes, Truth, Past Present Future, So True, Thought
The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they always see The past better than it was. The present worse than it is. The future less resolved than it will be. #happiness #quote #wisdom #quotes #motivational #inspirational
This is so true. Life's too short not to be happy. Live in the moment and stay positive . . . ALWAYS!!!
I chose this quote because it describes simply and accurately the difficulty I have being happy. The past is nostalgic the present is a chore and the future makes me anxious. This outlook on life is so negative, and I hate it because I used to be positive but life has knocked me down so much I now find it very hard to keep spirits up. I get through my day and that is. This however encourages the turning away from those negative thoughts because you could be happy if you change your outlook.

I'm not sure this is true. I think it should say that "relationships are about two individuals who maintain their individuality while creating one life together" Yes, that feels better. :-)
Truth - relationships are about two individuals who maintain their own lives and create another one together.
truth: have your own identity...best relationships come from two "whole" "secure" people not a whole and a half or two halves. people make the mistake in forgetting/ignoring, "yes, there was an individual...a life... before the relationship"...BIG mistake
Key idea : individuals have their own lives within the life they create together, don't make them your life. ya dig?
soooo many people forget the "maintain their own lives" part of this....have lost a lot of friends over the years after they get in these types of relationships where they are no longer an 'individual'..... :(
aint that the truth. too many people forget to maintain their own lives outside of the relationship.
I love this reminder. AND..I love the thought of creating a new life with you!
Feel like too many people lose sight of their individuality ! So true
2010s- Although the original passing of the gay marriage law in San Francisco happened before this decade, it was halted from 2008 until Jun 27, 2013. Love=Happiness and giving everyone equal rights for the the happiness one can find in love, no matter the genders in which this "love" is occurring between, is a huge leap with took during this decade. Giving the same rights to gay people as straight people have, to be legally united, is only fair. There should be equality for all, always.
