At one point I even had a huge fight with my father over the issue of gay marriage and didn't speak to him for almost 6 months as a result. (He wound up thinking I must be gay since I'm not married and if I weren't how could I care so much about the issue? I let him think so, since it forced him to rethink his beliefs about gays. My mother, needless to say, did not approve of my methods, but my Dad is now pro gay marriage.)
You know, it's almost too bad my parents don't have a problem with equal rights for same-sex couples, because now I so want to emulate Ian!
Good. It should be.
If you have any friends or family members who are planning to vote away a same-sex couple's rights this Tuesday, now might be a great time to pull an Ian Welsh.
