American Democrats: Add Full Marriage Equality to Your Platform

In the US, the Democratic Party's national convention is upon us, and while the Republicans, who had their convention last week, continue to oppose even the limited same-gender freedom to marry, the Democratic Party will be officially supporting the limited same-gender freedom to marry in their platform. Clearly, of the two major parties, the Democratic Party is more friendly to full marriage equality. This being an Presidential Election year, the platform and the party convention are especially important.

Democrats should stand up and say that every adult, regardless of sexual orientation, gender, race, or religion, should have the right to share marriage with any consenting adults. Now is the time for the party to stand up for full marriage equality, not just one limited freedom to marry at a time.

I humbly suggest calling for the adoption of the Marriage Equality Amendment.

Show solidarity so that every adult is free to marry the person(s) she or he loves.

  1. Notes about marriage equality make me think about this video:


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.
