In the 2004 election, marriage equality advocates were on their heels after losing at the ballot box in eleven states. At the time, only Massachusetts recognized same sex marriage and many saw these defeats as a repudiation of my state’s insistence to recognize the rights of gays and lesbians.
Fast forward less than a decade and the tide of public opinion has shifted in favor of legalizing same sex marriages. Proof of that was the four wins in the November 2012 elections regarding same sex marriage. Hoping to capitalize on the change of heart, the campaign arm of the House Democrats launched what has turned out to be their most successful online campaign ever.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee reports that it has seen more than 10 million views on its Facebook page and nearly half a million Facebook likes. If you’d like to show your support on Facebook like this page.
This blog is my guilty pleasure and I want to say a quick thank you to everyone who takes time to browse through my posts. You can also check me out on Facebook here, www.facebook.com/BosGuyblog.
Recently I’ve also started using Google+ so reach out and add me to your circles.
Do you use Google+? I ask because I created an account some time ago, but I’ve started to post more regularly on it.
You can find me on Google+ as Bos Guy or link here.
I’m still trying to figure my way around Google+ but I love how it syncs so easily with YouTube. Any bloggers out there who are leveraging Google+? I’d be curious to get your thoughts on what you like about it and how it is different from Facebook.
This image is making the rounds on Facebook. It was actually my friend David over at Wicked Gay Blog who brought this to my attention. Upon reading it I shared it on my Facebook page with the comment “Jacob you are not broken, you are not confused and the only people who need to be fixed are the people who are telling you those lies.“
Incidentally by “fixed” I mean that in the neuter or spade reference one often hears about pets. I would be so very pleased if you would swipe this image from my blog and also post it along with your sentiments – whether you echo my message or create one of your own. If Jacob is brave enough to tell a panel of heterosexual men and women in the NJ Senate that he doesn’t need to be fixed, wouldn’t you agree the least you could do is echo his thoughts by sharing his message through whatever social media channels you prefer?
It’s time for a bit of shameless pandering. Think of this as my demented version of PBS donor drive, but in stead of asking you for donations (well those are welcome but not necessary), I’m seeking your approval.
