A Thought on Jokes

In fact, if a joke has ever gotten anyone hurt, it would be the person delivering the joke. As in, the guy wearing one of these "abhorrent" shirts might possibly get his ass kicked as a result. If that's the case, the guy you call the narrow-minded piece of trash is the one having harm inflicted upon him, and probably at the hands of the guy you felt needed defending in the first place.
You convince yourselves the type of entertainment we provide can undo social progress because you want to believe entertainment can provide social progress. The truth is it can't do either. Minorities gained rights because a bunch of politicians passed laws, not because Bob Dylan wrote some pretty songs.
Just a thought. Not mine.

State Mandated Divorce

Why, again, aren't conservatives up in arms about state-mandated divorce?

"Fidelity": Don't Divorce... from Courage Campaign on Vimeo.

This video brought tears to my eyes. This is our generation's civil rights battle, with just as much discomfort and anger, and just as long of a journey. The fight for equal rights never ends, it just grows wider.
