The world is a scary place. A lot of us are born into bad situations and our basic needs aren’t even met. If they are, we’re lucky enough to run around for about three years before we can remember anything, (like how you never remember the beginning of a dream! INCEPTION.) then we go to school, question our parents, fall in love, drop shorties, grow old, and die. But beyond that, the only shared human experience is that most of the time we don’t know what to do! We really only get a vague outline, and even that only works for some people. So when folks are trying to figure out what they’re life is going to be, you should leave them alone! That’s a romantic idea, but it’s right. Finding someone to spend your life with- marriage- is something that’s basic toward human happiness. Just ask Erik Erickson! And laws shouldn’t be made that keep people from doing that, especially when what they are doing has never hurt anyone ever. And if you don’t see where I’m going with this, we’re looking at you, North Carolina.
61 percent of referendum voters in North Carolina hate gays so much that they amended their Constitution to define marriage as only between a man and a woman- even though they already had a statue against it in place! That’s ridiculous! Who do you think, in the liberal, accepting administration in Washington would swoop in to do something? Oddly enough, it was Joe Biden. On Meet the Press, he affirmed his belief in gay rights during the shitstorm of this ridiculous law, when Obama was still bogged down in political, re-election bullshit. So this week, our Human Being of the Week is Joe Biden, because, surprisingly, he had compassion for the LGBT community when Obama didn’t. And our Fuck You of the Week goes to any North Carolinian who voted for the Double-Anti Gay Constitutional Amendment, because you are a dick who’s preventing other people from being happy.
