Casually she says there are 500 reasons that she married me.
And she has. I get a letter periodically with a numbered list. We’re well into the 3 hundreds and only a couple of repeats so far. If you consider that I have a pair of hands, and a pair of breasts, the repetition may not even be shirking. This morning, a woman proposed writing one thing she loves about her partner every day until the nearly inevitable November vote on marriage equality in Washington. She asked if others would join her. I think it’s a brilliant idea. But I’m proposing a slight variation.
Would you consider submitting to me your reasons for supporting marriage equality? Your sexuality is beside the point, as is mine, so I welcome support from my queer community and our straight allies. Write why you chose to marry, or why you would marry, or why you believe in marriage, or why you’re not into marriage but think marriage equality is still vital. Write whatever you feel compelled to write. I’ll post it here, on my site, and include your name and city, unless you’d like to be anonymous. What do you think? Wanna join me?
