Modest Request Denied in Hawaii

Governor of Hawaii, Linda Lingle, shot down a bill to create civil unions. One reason she gave was that these civil unions were same-sex marriage by a different name, as if same-sex marriage is a bad thing.

It is too bad that she didn’t immediately ask for a bill that would, instead of creating civil unions, declare marriage available to all consenting adults, no matter their sexual orientation, gender, relation, or how many people want to be in the marriage. I suggest this Marriage Equality Amendment.

Why is it so hard for someone to say “Consenting adults have the right to love, sex, and marriage.” - ?

To prevent spam, comments will have to be approved, so your comment may not appear for several hours. Feedback is welcome, including disagreement. I only delete/reject/mark as spam: spam, vulgar or hateful attacks, repeated spouting of bigotry from the same person that does not add to the discussion, and the like. I will not reject comments based on disagreement, but if you don't think consenting adults should be free to love each other, then I do not consent to have you repeatedly spout hate on my blog without adding anything to the discourse.

If you want to write to me privately, then either contact me on Facebook, email me at fullmarriageequality at protonmail dot com, or tell me in your comment that you do NOT want it published. Otherwise, anything you write here is fair game to be used in a subsequent entry. If you want to be anonymous, that is fine.

IT IS OK TO TALK ABOUT SEX IN YOUR COMMENTS, BUT PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR WORDS CAREFULLY AS I WANT THIS BLOG TO BE AS "SAFE FOR WORK" AS POSSIBLE. If your comment includes graphic descriptions of activity involving minors, it's not going to get published.
