Voting Links... HighSchool Popularity!!!
Thumbs up to reader Fred, for suggesting I get voting links and patiently clueing me in. Who knew that doing webcomics was a popularity contest?!! Well, there ya go, there are now links to both Buzzcomix and TopWebcomics voting at the top of the main menu. Please remember to click them every day if you like the comic... supposedly this will bring me more readers.
Or maybe a toaster oven. I'd settle for an allongé a day. :D

LUGs and Civil RIghts
Other than that, do what you can to make sure your elected representatives stand up for equal rights for all minorities. That means upholding constitutions that declare equal rights for all. Freedom of religion means that I can believe that god created and loves gays as well as straights (I mean heck, if there is a gay gene, where did it come from? The devil??) Freedom of religion means that Christians don't get to dictate whom I commit my life to.
The idea that gays marrying stomps on straight marriage is akin to stating that women getting the vote stomps on men's right to vote. Or that Jewish people having the legal right to marry other Jewish people would force Catholic priests to marry them. If Catholics can allow protestant ministers to marry, why is it a religious problem for non-Christian, or even Christian lesbians and gays to marry?
How can fighting for the right to do something, so that more people are doing it, destroy that thing? More people voting bolsters democracy, so why would more people marrying not bolster the institution of marriage? If marriage is the cornerstone of society, creating relational stability, why would letting gays marry (theoretically cutting down that much reviled promiscuous gay lifestyle) not add to stability of society?
I just don't understand the religious and civil opponents arguments against gays marrying.
But people keep acting like chicken little, and the USA continues to institutionalize bigotry. (re that link: they're against sex outside marriage... funny they oppose gay marriage, but don't support removing civil rights from straight unmarried couples) Please fight it. It doesn't matter if you are gay, it is a civil rights issue. I will fight for your right to take viagra, if you'll fight for my right to marry whom I want. I will fight for your right to divorce, if you will fight for my right to adopt.
ps, while googling Ms.Diamond I have found this other fascinating blog piece about the links between lust and romantic love.
