However, 25 years after Roe v. Wade, we have yet to walk out of the tunnel of abortion stigma. Congratulations to S. Dakota, Colorado and us Californian women, our voice had shed some light in the way out of the tunnel.
But shame on Californians who took the out-of-state handouts and swallowed their morality! Lesbians and gays' families fell in a shallow boat thank to the discriminating ideology.
Are LGBT humans?
Perhaps today's LGBT resemble Sara Baartman in 1814, a young African woman displayed naked as a science project in traveling circus in Europe. She was not a human, because the Bible did not mention any black skin. LGBT are aliens, because the Bible did not mention unions other than virgina and penis. Sara's brain and genitals were displayed in Paris until 1976; for more than 150 years, we did not consider this human have the same right as the rest of us. Will it take that long to admit LGBT, too, have basic rights to love, have sex, live together, marry each other and have children?
Does marriage mean a virgina and a penis? Do all non-child-bearing married women commit a crime? Do believes separate us from each other?
Until we recognize that all are equal: animals, plants, women, men, LGBT, handicapped, the dying and the young, until we learn that the majority do not have the right to exploit the minority, Changes have yet to come!
February 12, 2004, San Francisco made history by granting the first ever same-sex marriage license to a prominent lesbian couple as part of a challenge to a ban on gay marriage. Longtime activists Phyllis Lyon, 79, and Del Martin, 83, who have been a couple for over 51 years, said their vows at city hall after Mayor Gavin Newsom ordered officials to wed gay couples and issue marriage licenses in an act of civil disobedience against a state law that bars same-sex marriages.
