Post-election commentary (skinny version)

  1. McCain’s concession speech was awesome. A friend of mine described it as his “return to integrity.” I think he’s just as relieved he didn’t make to the White House as I am.
  2. Obama said “gay or straight” in his victory speech. I’m happy about this. Of course, I’d have been even happier if he’d said, “gay, straight, bisexual, or transgendered.” But maybe all those decisions by activists judges have made me too big for my britches. Yes’suh, I’s happy with civil unions. Which brings me nicely to…
  3. …Prop 8 passing in California. Grargh. And also: haha, Massachusetts is the Winnar! And I win for staying in Mass.
  4. Via WordPress Tag Surfer, I bring you a set of lovely images from the Grant Park celebration.*

* And as a minor aside, I find it interesting that the tags “love,” “relationships,” and “god” link to so many blogs on the completely opposite side of the political spectrum from mine. I respect Christianity in the aggregate, but I still find myself suppressing the gag reflex when reading certain Christian blogs in the specific. Still, we’re all Americans and we all have the right to express ourselves. Even opinions like this one. Or this one, God help us all.

More to the point, I find it annoying that words like “god,” “faith,” and “spirituality” seem to have been appropriated by a group of people with viewpoints so drastically convergent from my own. There is a liberal religious tradition in the United States. I swear to God/dess, I’m not making it up.

Entry filed under: bisexuality, feminism, following orders, freedom of expression, glbt rights, god, identity politics, sluts have more fun, spirituality, submission, that is NOT what I meant by submission, who's in charge here. Tags: , , , , , , , , .

    Excuse me, butI have received two comments on my blog today in regards to you not liking my last post on “Dont Panic”. I respect your opinion, as you say you do mine, but I would appreciate you stop posting these comments on my blog. Thank you and have a blessed day.

    Ramom, I’m sorry if my post offended you. WordPress has this featured called “pingbacks,” which would have noted when I linked to your blog from mine.

    I haven’t posted any comments to your blog, and I hope that anyone who visited you was respectful.

    If you don’t want the pingback to appear, just delete the comment.

    Sometimes I wish civil unions could be set equal to marriages in terms of legal benefits and the like. I’m not religious at all and I think I would be happier to be civilly united with someone than married. “Partner” sounds more intimate to me than husband or wife.
