Some additional fuming.

I was talking to a friend of mine today, omg, yes I have friends. Anyway, this guy is from the same area I am, he's a little younger than I am. He's a Christian and a Republican. OMG christian and republican friends! You know I don't really care what people's affiliations and stuff are like, I just don't like it when people try to cram their thoughts and beliefs down my throat when I clearly disagree. I'm sure he's sick of butting heads with me when I discuss politics around him.

Anyway, pointing out that I have a friend that is like the anti-me is not the point. We were discussing gay rights earlier today, something I can tell he's not comfortable with. I'm not exactly sure where his stance is, but I don't think he believes homosexuals should have any kind of rights as far as being a legal "couple" (married, civil union, whatever you want to call it). The thing that got me is his description of homosexuals -> "men that sleep around with other men." I think this is the most bigotted thing I've ever heard come from him. I told him that I believe homosexual couples have longer lasting relationships and they're more loyal than heterosexual couples. I couldn't find any nonbiased information to back that up. Can anyone reading this help?

Anyway, I swiftly informed him that justice should be blind and not care or know what the gender is for the people entering the relationship. They deserve the same basic rights as any heterosexual couple. If marriage is so sacred, why don't we ban divorces? It's not sacred and as far as the government is concerned, it should just be a manner of certain legal rights appointed to two people, such as property rights, tax rights, in-case-of-death-rights, and the basic respect that -any- person -in a free country- deserves.

I can't stand the way these people thrust freedom in your face and then deny that very tenet to people within this countries borders. Talk about hypocritical bullshit.

In other news, the artist of RadioActive Panda rocks.

In other other news, went back to the old October painting.
