She runs a blog called A Cape Cod Bride, and I came across her while looking for "seeds" to plant that fit the interest of this blog,and I ran across a fabulous post of hers from January 24, 2010 entitled A Word (or Many) About Gay Marriage.
While looking for something to post, I got a whole lot more here, lovelies. I got a lesson, an important, valuable lesson: Some straight people do get it.
While I know many loving, gay affirming straight people both online and off, they seem to simply sympathize for a moment, then go on with their lives of heterosexual privilege, never really looking to see what we go through just to live our lives in a society that says that we aren't good enough, and that it is ok to discriminate. For this reason, I had drawn a very clear line in the sand between straight folks and me as a method of self preservation. Morgan's post inspired another Ally,Tabitha, to write a heart- felt post of frustration on the subject as well. I was wrong to assume no straight person gets it at all though, as some people really are
I hope you will all read her blog as well, and, if you had the same gay vs straight hang ups that I did, learn something from it. Also, it's a GREAT place for ideas to plan your out of this world, "budget beautiful"(her words!) Big Gay Wedding!
