Lets Not Talk About Sex

Before the serious stuff..... Happy Valentines Day, Dear Constant Reader. I hope love finds you today.

Thanks to a certain Luke I am now the very proud owner of 4NonBlondes "Bigger, Better, Faster, More!" which contains my all time most fav song ever........ "Whats up?" It's on right now. And making me cry. :o)

Noe for something completely different.

Jason's Valentines Address

I don't believe in the institution of marriage. It is an ancient concept created for a backward time.

We, as a culture, need to move beyond partnerships that are based solely on procreation and romantic love. That is not to say they are not very valid reasons for a partnership. But there are so many more! Marriage is denying people REAL choice.

It discriminates not only against gays and lesbians but against hetrosexual couples who don't believe in marriage, and many other forms of relationship beside. All because of some dream of fairy tale romance and nuclear families which is not a timeless concept but one that was a direct result of the industrial revolution.

Please read Peter Tatchell's article entitled "Civil Committment Pact" which details a far better, fairer way of doing things. It's wouldn't stop you from getting married if that is your thing. But it would allow everyone to share the same rights whoever they want to designate their "significant other".
