Tackling Homophobia
Baltimore Ravens three-time Pro Bowl linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo came out for full marriage equality, writing in the Huffington Post: "Looking at the former restrictions on human rights in our country starting with slavery, women not being able to vote, blacks being counted as two-thirds of a human, segregation ... all have gone by the wayside. But now, here in 2009, same-sex marriages are prohibited. I think we will look back in 10, 20, 30 years and be amazed that gays and lesbians did not have the same rights as every one else. How did this ever happen in the land of the free and the home of the brave? Are we really free?"

Plus, this is so sad, it makes my stomach ill. From [livejournal.com profile] sannion:
Hospital Forces Lesbian to Die Alone; Judge Gives Stamp of Approval
Patient Relations Department for the hospital can be reached here. Please tell them how you feel about this. I know I will.

And people wonder why I have nightmares about certain things regarding [livejournal.com profile] feorran and I. But at least there are small rays of hope out there. I cling to those. I need to.
