I did, but I'm tired of this crap. So instead of leaving the HRC boilerplate text, I wrote this:
I have lived with and loved a man for fifteen years. This relationship shapes my life and gives it meaning. I cannot understand why anyone feels that this poses such a threat to the social order that it must be legally negated in the very document that makes our country real.I don't know which is worse: that our leaders are ignorant bigots, or that they're merely pandering to ignorant bigots to win elections.
If my government honestly believes that I should be singled out for discrimination in the Constitution, then I see no choice but to seek citizenship elsewhere. I find this unutterably sad, because I love this country and the Constitutional principles that I believe make it great. I even had hope that the Federal Government would someday undo the discrimination now written into Ohio's Constitution. But a "Marriage Protection Amendment" mocks the call to establish justice and to secure the blessings of liberty. I will truly understand, then, that I am not welcome here.
