I am so tired of the debate on whether anyone should be able to vote on my — or anyone else’s — civil rights. Would you be having this long and tortured discussion about “procedure” if the issue involved the rights of African-Americans, Jews, Catholics, etc., to marry whom they wished? Thankfully, I can’t imagine it. Somehow, though, it remains acceptable to use the rights of lesbians and gays as political footballs and fodder for tiresome and homophobic debate. Please give it a rest and move on, as I hope the legislature has.
Please share widely!
