Gay Marriage

Can someone please explain to me the harm that homosexuals will do to the institution of marriage? What damage could we possibly do that heterosexuals haven't already done? For support, I call upon Elizabeth Taylor and Britney Spears. I didn't used to be all gung-ho on the whole gay marriage thing. I used to think we homosexuals might be better served finding new ways to celebrate our unions other than the ones created by heterosexual society. But people everywhere seemed determined to make this an issue, and I can only be on one side of it. There is a fabulous show by solo performance superstar Tim Miller about gay marriage called Glory Box.  Everyone ought to read it.  It's good shit.  Heartbreaking and wonderful... and he's just one man.  Visit:

He's amazing.

Needless to say, I am not a big fan of Mr. Bush right about now.  And don't those democrats owe Howard Dean a little something.  Now he's droppeed out of the race... crazy considering he was the one who convinced the dems that they could actually fucking WIN the election again.  All of them had given up hope until Hilary runs in 2008.  Plus his contributions in terms of fundraising on the grassroots level.  He really has been a progressive anti-establishment voice.  And then the dems all went with Kerry... about as established as you can get.  Very disappointing.
