I used to do weird things when I was a kid, and yesterday, I found this really small framed picture.
It was in a tiny plastic packet.
I remember it, I wanted to draw like that… I usually check things that I liked some months ago on tumblr and I’m like “why did I like that”.
But this one is…
Es ella y solo ella <3
Republican national committeeman Dave Agema, a prominent Michigan lawmaker, is refusing to apologize or resign from his position after posting a horrendously anti-gay article on his Facebook page.
On Wednesday, at the height of the Supreme Court debate over DOMA, Agema posted an article titled “Everyone Should Know These Statistics on Homosexuals,” attributed to Frank Joseph, M.D. Even fellow Republican leaders are demanding he step down, but Agema says he did nothing wrong because he didn’t actually write the article.
The post depicts gay people as sexually promiscuous, rife with sexually transmitted diseases and responsible for “half the murders in large cities.” It cites 30-year-old studies for some of its statistics and sources such as the Congressional Record and special-interest groups for others.
Kalamazoo County Republican Chairman David Worthams was among those who called Thursday on Agema to resign.
“I basically find what Agema has said to be very reprehensible,” Worthams told the Free Press. “It makes my job more difficult as the county chair,” and it appears “his ego will not allow him to apologize.”
Ugh, this is so unnecessary. Just take responsibility for being a jerk and learn from it.
Michigan, Arizona and Virginia all have constitutional amendments in place that ban same-sex marriage — and they also all have majority support for marriage equality.
Polls in these unlikely states have found that all three show a majority of citizens supporting same-sex marriage, even though voters in these states passed anti-marriage-equality amendments in 2004, 2008 and 2006, respectively.
A recent poll of Michigan voters found that 56.8% of Michiganders support marriage equality, according to The Detroit News. That’s a sharp reversal from last year, when just over 44% of Michiganders supported marriage equality. …
Support for marriage equality is even spreading south of the Mason-Dixon line to Virginia. A recent Washington Post poll found that 56% of Virginians support the freedom to marry — a 10% increase from support in 2011. …
Even Arizona, where the legislature is currently considering a bill that would forbid transgender people from using the restroom that corresponds with their gender identity, is feeling the push toward marriage equality. Although Arizona voters overwhelmingly passed a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage in 2008, 55% of voters now favor marriage equality, according to a Rocky Mountain Poll released Wednesday and published at TalkingPointsMemo.
I’m baffled and thrilled by the momentum of this movement. Public opinion is changing quickly, and it’s ridiculously exciting.
