During this human rights crisis, all of us - whether gay, lesbian,
bisexual, or transgendered - and our supporters need to take action if we
same rights as other Americans.
It goes against everything America claims to stand for to manipulate the
constitution with discriminatory amendments.
Protecting the civil rights of every American - not just the majority of
Americans - is a part of the Constitution's original design.
President Bush and all of his supporters now trying to ban gay marriage
need to feel the direct impact of our community.
Remember that our nation is strongly capitalist based and it's all about
money at the end of the day. We know that this legislation is more about
money than religious scriptures.
I PROPOSE THAT WE ALL GO ON A CONSUMER STRIKE FOR 2 WEEKS.
FROM MARCH 13th THROUGH MARCH 27th, DON'T BUY ANYTHING YOU DON'T NEED - NO
LUXURY OR LEISURE ITEMS.
IF WE AREN'T GOOD ENOUGH TO GET MARRIED, THEN THE STATES DON'T NEED OUR MONEY EITHER.
LET THEM FEEL IT WHERE IT HURTS.
THIS IS SOMETHING THAT ALL OF US CAN DO.
PASS THIS ON TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CAN!
I also suggest that we pledge to donate the $$ we would have spent that week to an org like MoveOn, HRC, or Millionformarriage and pass the list of pledge names on to major papers so they get the point that our money, our votes, and our lives are not to be trifled with.
Crossposted all over the freakin' place - sorry to those on multiple lists!
