As regular readers know, my happy little niche here on Bilerico is to share some of the buried or obscure images I dig up as I research all aspects of sex all over the Internet. Not sure if you know much about me, but my professional life is devoted to sex research, writing books/articles, and therapy (my bread and butter). Meaning that, in fact, I'm a super opinionated, passionate advocate of sexual freedoms.
As one of the few hets to blog on Bilerico, I thought my beloved readers here ought to know just how I really feel about it. So I'm stepping out of my "photo lady" role for a moment to share what I recently posted on my personal blog about the reversal of Prop 8, after the jump. (Suffice it to say the irresistibly adorable image below is as G-rated as it got on my blog.)
To celebrate the happy news that the legal system has finally come to its senses in California and reversed the thoroughly morally repulsive, Proposition 8 that barred some Americans from rights that should be granted to all, I'm devoting this afternoon to sexual, sensual, and romantic couplings.
One point that has not been hammered home often enough: the right's argument against allowing gay marriage is that civil unions grant many of the same rights as straight marriage (so gays and lesbians should shut up and be grateful) is idiotic and insulting. Why should any group settle for crumbs? Are gays and lesbians the new slave class, expected to feel grateful for any acknowledgment of their citizenship that they get? Being gay or lesbian sure doesn't exempt them from paying taxes, does it.
As long as we allow marriage in America to be a right granted only to one class of people (heterosexuals; and the tens of thousands of closeted people who lie about it) there is no justice in America. For reasons that are all about religious dogma, and not in the least about the foundations of rational thought, heterosexuals are treated as a special elite, entitled to rights we collectively refuse to grant to our neighbors, relatives, friends, and co-workers because... because... we disapprove of who they sleep with?
Fuck inequality! Long live sexual freedom and equal rights for all.
