Children today will be growing up in a world without DOMA….(pause for celebration)…We have achieved another step towards the pressing & important issue of marriage.
However, Children will still be growing up in a nation with a massive amount of wealth inequality, poverty, & the reintroduction of scrip. They will be growing up in a nation where they are spied on, where their e-mails & telephone conversations are recorded & categorized.
Let’s not forget that, despite the fact we have a democrat in office, they will still be growing up in a nation where they can be detained & held in an offshore prison without trial.
Children today will live in a world where it is easier to take away their right to vote. Because, let’s not forget, the people that control the House that will be writing the voting rights issues are the same people that have spoken out against Back votes less than a year ago.
And if these children are 13, they have lived their entire lives in a country that is in a state of war.
Now that we have passed a milestone in the pressing civil rights issue of marriage inequality, could we please drop the whole Gay Rights thing & start focusing on the issues that are literally life & death?
Death is permanent, & let’s face it, this is America, marriage is temporary.
