Well, I voted today. To do my civic duty I had to get up at 5am to make it to the polls and then work. Yikes! But I'm glad I went. I'm not a political person. Not at all. But voting for the president, and other issues that I feel strongly about, will get me out to vote.
Despite not being political, I will say this: I do feel very strongly that Question One should pass. The last time this was up for vote I was pregnant. It was a bit of an eye opener for me that the child I was carrying could be born into a society that might deny him rights for being who he is. With raging Mommy hormones, I voted to keep gay marriage legal. It was heart breaking when the law was overturned. As a result, my son WAS born into a society that would deny him rights should he be gay.
I wasn't very happy about that and am very glad to see it back on the ballot once again. I voted Yes on One today. And if it doesn't pass this year, I will go back and vote the next time it is on the ballot, and the next, and the next, until it passes.
Gay or straight, I want my son, my stepsons, my family, my friends and complete strangers to be able to marry whomever they love.
