Look. I can’t say I understand what it’s like to wanna marry somebody and can’t. Strike that. I suppose I can but me wanting to marry Denzel and him already having a wife is more complicated, I reckon. I mean, he just hasn’t made himself available to me, so I guess we’re kinda in boats running along the same waters ’cause the law ain’t passed in a lotta states for same-sex couples to get married. A pity and a shame, some folk say but I’m gonna tell you like this…
I say, let the president and congress focus on the economy right now ’cause these are mostly men folk and they’re not known for multitasking. Besides, you’re gonna need yourself a job to take care of your spouse once you do marry, okay? In the meantime, keep fornicating, knocking boots or whatever the hell you call what you do. You don’t have to tell me what it is ’cause I ain’t interested in the terminology but whatever it is, go right on with it since you’ve been doing it all this time. I’m fairly certain you’re not virgins or nothing.
I realize you’ve been waiting for years and all that but frankly, I think jobs are more pressing than getting married. Plan out the wedding for however long it takes the law to pass but please, hold back on the legislating ’til some of them jobs come back from China. Hell, we’re still trying to replace the Made in China shit we bought from Ikea and that’s gonna take some time since EVERY. DAMN. THING. is made in China. In the between time, I highly recommend you fly, take a train or bus to one of them states that’s allowing gay marriage, if the need’s that urgent. Shit, be practical. You’ve gotta go honeymooning somewhere anyway, so go on and handle your business wherever that may be.
Not trying to minimize what you’re going through and I know it’s akin to saying, ‘Somebody’s going through shit far worse than you. Look at the children starving in Africa.’ Don’t it piss you off when folk say that? But it’s true, right? I’m not trying to be all up and inside of your business and whatnot but we do have to prioritize. If you know of a way to keep child predators away from innocent younguns, let’s put that first on the agenda. Maybe, let’s even get those soldiers back from Afghanistan too. You may decide you want one of them instead. You know how fickle love can be. And let’s rally behind elderly folk and take care of them first too. America just don’t care for their elderly like other countries. I’d also like to see folks not having such easy access to guns. These are more pressing matters that puts everyone at risk, if not taken care of. Get a more prolific take on this at Impower You, as she talks Past Pop Politics, which sums it all up for me.
I understand you want the whole package, health benefits and all that but until what you want happens, you’re gonna have to work like everybody else to get those benefits, okay? Or get Obamacare, one.
Looka here. I really would like to care about gay marriage but honestly, my plate’s real full. I won’t lie to you. I can see me now, if I did go to some gay marriage rally and somebody got to really inquiring on my stance. There I’d be, holding a paper plate of food and a cuppa something in the other hand. Just my damn luck, there a camera would be with a reporter shoving a mic all up in my face, and I’d have to go, “I’m only here for the cookies and punch.”
