Wanda Sykes on Gay Marriage

I have always liked Wanda Sykes. I have to agree with her on this issue. I found this video on Youtube. *warning* this video has lots of cussing.



I haven't ever made a view on Gay Marriage. So here goes.

I should have the same right as everyone else has in the US. I was told by a str8 guy, "you do have the same right, you can marry a girl any time you want." I just stared at him. He is right. Completely right.

I do have mixed emotions about it though. Deep down yeah I would like to someday marry the guy that I love.
But what I think would be much better is, being able to walk hand in hand with him down a street, or to hug him in public with out hearing some stupid remark. Or go shopping with out seeing that look. My god don't you people have enough in your lives with out involving me in it. I look like a straight man, my boyfriend looks like a straight man, but when we go shopping together, its a whole new world. I just don't get it.

Now back to rights.
I don't have the right to Marry a man.
I don't have the right to visit my Partner that is in the hospital. (family only)
I don't have the right to hold hands, hug, or kiss in public.
I don't have the right to be me at work.
I don't have the right to put up a gay flag on my desk at work.
I don't have the right to be me in public.
I don't have the right to say that I am gay in the military.
I don't have the right to go to church. (I am Baptist and yes I was asked to leave.)
I don't have the right to eat in restaurants.
I don't have the right to change my last name or his.
I don't have the right to go to a movie.
I don't have the right to go dancing.

I know some of you are saying that yeah you have the right to go eat or to a movie. Well here is a wonderful test for you. Go get a friend of the same sex, walk only 2" apart from each other, say the word "we" a lot. Go shopping, go to the movie, for kicks go to church. People will give you that look and you will get comments you don't want to hear.

So you see I as a gay man have less right as a str8 man.

I know that I have missed tons on my list, I am sure some of you will let me know more. I would appreciate that.
