Quote From My Life: Words Matter

(c), vesmil 2011

It’s been a long week. Maybe the lack of sleep is getting to me, or maybe I’m just feeling the need to vent a little. In either case, here’s one from my own life today.

“When your partner’s mom is in a serious car crash, is taken by helicopter to the hospital, has a 14 hour surgery, and is in the ICU, you are reminded how important the words “spouse” and “mother-in-law” are and how much it sucks when you can’t legally use them.”

Happy Valentine’s Day! Here’s what I’m loving today…


Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you all have or find someone to love who also loves and respects you.

Here are a few things I’m loving that I wanted to share.

  1. Video of an 80 year old grandmother speaking about her gay son
    “My son is not an issue. He’s a person. Just like you.”
  2. If you need some extra words when talking to your lover tonight check out these 47 words to call your lover
  3. Looking for a gay Valentine or other e-card? Try Out Greetings (that’s where the picture above came from)
  4. And lastly, check out what my honey made for my office. Isn’t it great?

Video I Love: Edie Windsor and ACLU Challenge DOMA

Another good one in support of marriage equality.

“Edith “Edie” Windsor, who shared her life with her late spouse, Thea Spyer, for 44 years, files a lawsuit against the federal government for refusing to recognize their marriage. The lawsuit challenges the constitutionality of the “Defense of Marriage Act” (DOMA), a federal statute that defines marriage for all federal purposes as a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife. Windsor and Spyer were married in Canada in 2007, and were considered married by their home state of New York.” (Source: YouTube)
