all the emotion and tension and comment-drama around marriage equality being up to a vote is wearing me out.
it’s fantastic. it’s finally happening. but, really, it disheartens me when I find out that many people I respected are homophobic or transphobic, when to me this should be so bloody obvious no one should be opposing it. and it’s all it’s finally here, I can finally go out and campaign my heart out but it’s this ball of tension and emotion and people fighting tooth and nail because they feel their religion will be destroyed against people fighting tooth and nail because they just want to get married, you know and people I dearly love have come up to me and told me my stance is hurting them somehow and I want to do lots of things to help just get it over this first threshold but I have no idea if they’ll work and I’m swamped with assignments and poor health and it’s consuming all my spare time (and some time I really can’t spare) to keep track of it all and worry and fret and fume and weep.
