Can You Vague That Up For Me?

Things That Piss Me Off

Yesterday, we went to a wedding reception for my husband’s niece, B and her partner. Despite the sweltering heat and humidity, it was absolutely beautiful. I’ve known B for almost as long as she’s been alive and I’ve never seen her look happier. I’ve never seen her partner look happier either. Both women glowed with a joy that was almost tangible.

At this point, you might be wondering, okay, Bron, if everything was all daffodils and teddy bears, why are you pissed?

Aside from the fact that same sex marriages aren’t universally recognized in the US, I was pissed off by the behavior of some of the guests. One in particular made snide comments, rolled her eyes and pointedly turned her back during the first dance.

I understand that some people believe that homosexuality is a sin – I don’t agree with it, but I respect their right to have an opinion. However, if you’re knowingly attending the celebration of the union of a same sex couple, leave your hatred at home. If you can’t do that…don’t go.

  1. I completely agree. If you can't get over your prejudice, you shouldn't be attending in the first place.

    Did anyone say anything to the rude guest?

  2. I'm glad that everything else went well for the ceremony. Hopefully the brides either didn't hear it at all, or were smart enough to ignore the behavior and not let it ruin their special day.

    Congrats to the happy couple for me okay?

  3. Oh…and P.S.

    I think you know how I feel about gay marriage in this country. I will be first in line to sign any petition, front of the crowd for any rally, and screaming louder than anyone to get it legalized in the entire U.S. It is absolutely discrimination and a complete travisty to our nation.

    But I will stop the rant as it is not my blog.

    Sorry, just one of my passions as you know.

    Love

  5. I dream of a day when we are not judged by the colour of our skin, the shape of our body or the way in which we choose to love…

    Congrats to the happy couple.

    hugs,

  7. The eye rollers should have stayed home rather than behave like asses. I'm so with you on this.

    Attending a wedding is meant to be a show of support for a couple.
