"He Didn't Give You Gay, Did He!?!"

Well, SSB's head is hanging down today, disgraced that majority of the citizens in the land I love, Wisconsin, has taken it upon themselves to write discrimination, hatred and bigotry into our state constitution with the passage of the so-call "Defense of Marriage" amendment. Defense of Marriage?!? Really?!? Just who are these unstable heteros whose marriages are threatened by the matrimohomoterrorists?!? And why doesn't my keyboard have an interrobang key?!?

I've always thought of Wisconsin as a fairly progressive state. Sure, there are a fair share of Larry the Cable Guywannabes and Johnny-Bible-thumps in residence, but by and large, we are a mostly "you leave me alone and I'll leave you alone" kind of place. For Chrissakes, we re-elected the only senator who didn't vote for the "Patriot Act", our state motto is "Forward", and we are the proud homeland of one Arthur Herbert Fonzarelli a.k.a. "The Fonz"...maybe you've heard of him?

Anyhoo, I found it deliciously ironic that the day our tribute to homophobia passed, Brittney Spears' seemingly rock-solid marriage ended. Maybe marriage does need defending, but it seems to me that it's the breeders that are the ones who are damaging its foundations.
