To the Dobson’s, LaBarbera’s and Kern’s of the world I am a monster because I do want to destroy their ‘traditional’ definition of marriage and family. I want far more inclusive definitions of both, definitions that are expansive enough to include all the wonderful and loving queer families that I know of. Families that the theocrats would condemn as evil and sinful, well fuck them and the horse they road in on. I want family to include any loving committed group of people who love and support each other.
I also want to destroy their definition of morality because it is based on hate, exclusion and intolerance. Their morality helped murder 15-year-old Lawrence King. I want a morality based in love and reducing peoples suffering, not reveling in it because they are ‘sinners’.
So yes for the theocrats I am a monster because want to sweep their narrow bigoted world view of the face of the earth.
