I am me

(no subject)

Dear Gov. Schwarzenegger,

I am strongly in favor of the Supreme Court's decision on same-sex marriage. I believe it is past time for California to recognize ALL marriages, not just the ones with the "right" combination of body parts.

For most of us, the right combination is a man and a woman. But for some of us, the right combination is two men, or two women. We ask only for the freedom to decide that for ourselves.

I don't think anyone, gay or straight, wishes to challenge the sanctity of straight marriages. On the contrary, I think most of us recognize that marriage is a sacred institution; one which protects our spouses and our families. That's why it's so important for same-sex marriages to be recognized by the State. Children of gay and lesbian parents, and the parents themselves, deserve that protection.

I urge you to do everything you can to fight the anti-same-sex marriage initiative that will be on the ballot in November. Please don't allow hateful bigots to decide what is best for our families.

Thank you.
