“The suggestion that opposition to same-sex marriage has been silenced due to bullying rings untrue. Instead, the opposition wants to speak without having to encounter a response.

Just read that the six policemen have been charged with murder. It’s about time this shit was taken seriously by TPTB. It makes me so sad to have to accept that this is my country today.

It does not make me superior to anyone else on the planet. In a just world, it would only mean that I am more prone to sunburn, not that it gives me license to persecute those who do not look like me, believe what I believe, eat what I eat, whatever. Someone just Tumblr’d that hamburg thing where the wrapper was different but the burger inside was exactly the same, to make the point. Get the point, people. Please. Get the point.
