Some other people wanted to read this so I made it public... I'm a little nervous because I sort of put myself out there on this one. (Seriously, I used to filter entries with this particular tag, but I think I'm sort of past worrying about that now.) Anyway...
So... I think I have a pretty good handle on how most of California!f-list feels about this issue, and how some of the rest of f-list feels about this issue, and... Basically the reason I didn't post about this earlier was because I would sort of have been preaching to the choir with California!f-list. But if there was ever a time to post this... idk, even if you don't agree with gay marriage, hear me out.( That's the way it is in California.Collapse )
Feel free to disagree, I know a few of you do, just... this is my stance and my reasoning and I'd like for people to know what it is and why. And for the record (apart from the part where I am TOTALLY GAY FOR SHOU--but that's a separate issue), I'm straight. ;p It seems like it's trendy to be a lesbian or something, but... yeah. For the most part, I like boys. 8D
In other news, I'm still super stressed about applying to private colleges because we're supposed to bring our completed applications and mailing envelopes and transcripts and everything to our letter of rec appointments!? JKHADSF WHY DON'T YOU TELL US ANYTHING, COLLEGE OFFICE. All I wanted was the evaluation from Mrs. McCoy so I could send it wherever I needed if I decided I wanted to go there. Now I feel all pressured... D;
... WHEN REALLY, the only place I want to go now is Cal. orz I WANT TO GO TO A UNIVERSITY RENOWNED FOR ITS POLITICAL ACTIVISM. I want to be
politically active, and I want to be surrounded by people who are also politically active (and are not Kevin Downey or Zach Weitz, who are really both just more loud and obnoxious than they are activists). For the first time in my life, I really feel like I want to make a difference in the world, and that I actually can
. This is a wonderful feeling, and nothing can take it away from me.
Also... what they said on the announcements this morning was that is was an auspicious moment in history. Because it is
an auspicious moment in history, not because the student council supports Obama. If you can't just suck up your McCain-butthurt-ness for a second and realize that, yes, this is, in fact, an amazing feat for a country that, 60 years ago, wouldn't let colored people use the same drinking fountains as white people
, then you need to take the stick out of your ass and just... idk, just... god. It's nothing to call the school administration over, Jesus Christ. They were talking about his victory being amazing because he's a black guy. Are you going to complain about Black History Month, too? There are just... no words. :/
Anyway, brb, raging over California stripping civil liberties, SIGH.EDITED WITH QUOTES N' STUFF...!
