Moot: 2.6% of the population? Says who? The most reliable source with the lowest estimate (US census) found that 2.5% of HOUSEHOLDS are LGBT; this does not reflect the overall population (i.e. single people, teenagers, head of households in denial about a family member, etc). There are so many other polls and studies and most estimates are between 4-10%. Of course that would probably mean nothing to you since you base your views and facts in gay stereotypes.
Bigoted groups have declared August 1st "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day" in support of their anti-gay marriage views. So let's kiss the chain goodbye!
On Aug 1st, visit any Chick-fil-A in Nashville with a lover or friend and KISS, KISS, KISS in support of marriage equality! Gay, Str8 or Bi, take a stand. Tell them love comes in all colors of the rainbow whether they like it or not.
The more the kisses, the less likely bigots will stick around to make purchases.
KISS & TELL!
I know the difference between drag queen and transgender very well - I'm not ignorant and I'm very involved within the gay community. If you had paid attention to the sarcasm and smart-ass tone of my writting, you'd know that I purposedely selected those words to make a statement. Presenting the idea of them criminalizing the silliest and somewhat not-so-serious image of a drag queen peeing sitting down, enphasizes how silly, stupid and unnecessary the bill is. If it sounds mean to do so to a drag queen; imagine how awful it would be to a transgender person. Of course it is a serious issue. But sometimes you have to go down to their tiny level of mentality to get a message across. My two cents.
Here's a copy of the email I sent to Sen. Bo Watson:
Hon. Bo Watson:
My name is Alex Perez, a resident of the Germantown area of Nashville. I am contacting you to share my opinion in regards to SB 2282.
With so many important things to deal with like the economy, jobs, etc, your priority is to fine a drag queen for peeing sitting down? Seriously? If this bill makes it to law, are we gonna have now the Potty Police enforcing it with crotch checks?
As a former registered Republican and a TN resident for over 15 years, I am furious and more than ashamed that you and your party have turned into ignorant, mean-spirited, hateful assholes for the world to see!
How do you sleep at night?
