A Guest Post from Sarah

Editors Note: Scott and I are please to welcome our good blogmigo; Sarah. Because today is TBWA's First Birthday/Anniversary, she has graciously written a guest post for us... so without further ado, here's our first guest post in celebration of our 1-Year Anniversary.

I have something I want to say about same sex marriages.

If you have a problem with gay marriage the answer is simple. DON'T MARRY SOMEONE OF THE SAME SEX AND LEAVE EVERYBODY ELSE THE HELL ALONE!

Seriously. Just marry someone who is of the opposite sex and mind your own beeswax.

I have a huge problem with people who have snakes as pets. It freaks me out. I find it creepy and I think it is disgusting to keep a snake in the house. I can't think of one good reason why anyone would want to do that on purpose. So guess what? I don't own one. I have cats. I think that having a snake should be legal, but it just isn't for me. (I feel the same way about abortion, but that is a whole different post.)

I'm sorry if you feel that your god has a problem with it. But understand, no matter who you are, your god is not the same as everybody else's gods. I had a conversation with a good friend of mine who is intelligent and educated and who considers herself to be liberal. She believes in gay unions, but does not believe that they should get to call it marriage because it takes something away from her marriage.

I totally disagree.

That is like saying that having a second child makes you love the first child less, or the people who believe that if you raise the minimum wage their income will be less, just because some other guy went from making $5.15 an hour to $5.50 an hour.

Here is my point - if you are against it - don't get gay married. It doesn't effect you.

(And I thought I didn't think I had anything to write about that I felt strongly about. Ha!)

Happy Birthday "Bush"-Whacked Administration! It's been one hell of a year.


I mean, That's right, You heard me,

Right on, Sarah! It's the same as people who want to ban books (duh, don't read them) and the people who call television station switchboards to complain about "offensive" programs (duh, change the channel).

We'd all be so much better off if we would mind our own damn beeswax.

Sometimes I just hate all people.I know that's wrong, but I just don't get why same sex marriages are not legal and CELEBRATED.

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah said...

Agreed. And really, how is it at all different?

I have to admit I got a little nervous at your blog. You wrote you had a rant over here about same sex marriages and I literally said a little prayer "Please Sarah, be the Sarah I think you are" AND YOU ARE! YIPEE! You're rant was totally right on!

Same with people bitching about someone's blog. Um, don't waste anymore time flaming them--just don't read 'em anymore duh!

In my opinion, it is amazing finding someone you love. It's even more amazing when that someone loves you back. Like Queen of Spain said, Celebrate It It You Fools!

I couldn't change my sexuality if I wanted to. Falling in love with my husband wasn't a choice, it was instinct. And if I were told that I was 'wrong' and our union wasn't seen as 'legal' I'd be devistated.

So basically, rock on Sarah. And thank you.

Gosh, Sarah (and Hi, Bush-Whacked Boys!) I can't believe you didn't use any naughty words. I was really looking forward to some bad words. Words about sex.

What? Don't act like you think I wouldn't want to hear all about sex with the words "same sex" in it. I wanted to hear about SEX. I'll come back later. Work on it.

I knew we had to get together! I could have written this exact post, only not as well. I just had this argument with my mother who raised me to be a good Democrat. When I asked her what her big beef with gay marriage is she said, "Marriage is for men and women!" and my response was "That's YOUR definition of marriage and how you live, but who are you to tell someone else what their definition of marriage should be!"
Forget the kids, let's grab a beer and have a chat!
