Everything, that is, but the assurance of legal recognition?
How ’bout a nice juicy donation to the No on Proposition 8 campaign? It’s all the rage at California weddings this season.
And for good reason. A donation goes with anything you’re wearing. It fits fine in your already crowded kitchen cabinets because it’s actually never going to go there anyway. And both giver and receiver know it’s the right thing. Hmm: material possession? Or advancement in civil rights for friends, family, and neighbors? Material posessions? Or advancement in civil rights for friends, family, and neighbors? Should be an easy decision. I’ll go with None Are Free ‘Til All Are Free for $50, Bob.
Above: the donation table at the (3rd, hopefully final) wedding of the nice lesbian gals across the street. Wedding (1) was their own hitchin’, pre-2004; (2) their 2004 San Francisco wedding; and (3) Sunday’s beautiful event, at which their daughter tossed flower petals and clots of kids tucked into a fruit tart decorated to look like a rainbow-flag.
Donations to the No on 8 campaign are especially useful now that the Yes on 8 ads have hit the airwaves, with predictable scare tactics and misinformation. Like, your children will be forced to marry their same-sex chums in kindergarten if this thing passes. Joy of Gay S*x on the required reading list of first graders. Stuff like that.
