By now, many of you probably know that as of today Florida has an official, on the books ban against gay/lesbian people adopting children. If you want some details, check out [ profile] entrenous88's write up and link to the New York Times article.

As an adopted person, I am appalled that any state in this country would deny a child's right to a safe and loving home. Because that's what this really does--yes, it prevents gays from becoming legal parents and that is wrong, but it's ultimately about the kids. Kids who deserve a chance to be loved and cared for like the innocent victims of fate that they are. Is being in foster care better for them than being with a gay parent? ABSOLUTELY NOT! I am both sad and outraged that our civilized society, even with its flaws, allows such a thing. The religious right wants to stop abortion? Giving unwanted children fewer options after they're born isn't going to help.

I just don't understand how this is happening, and I feel so powerless to stop it. No matter how many letters I send, petitions I sign, money I donate, the tide keeps coming, relentless and blind to the consequences of what it seeks.

This is a sad day for me, and for America, and most of all for the children in Florida who will continue to exist on the whims of the state, with foster parents in fear and case workers in charge of their fate.

I had kind of a crappy day. Still jetlagged beyond belief (shouldn't I be over that by now??), painfully reminded once more that a close friend and I at work are no longer actually close, and quite positive that I'll be alone forever.

Of course, that hopefully is not true, but you know how some days every little thing brings home the fact that you're alone? This was one of those days for me. Bleh. I just want everyone to love me and despair. Oh, and an icon would be nice too. Is that so wrong?

In conclusion, instead of being productive and doing my graphic design project that's due tomorrow which I will never complete in time, I wrote more Xandoz. Again with the weird.
