Be careful what you tweet

This morning I had my first Twitter FAIL. You should always make sure that what you tweet now can’t be linked in anyway to what you’ve tweeted previously. For example:

NOT what you think

A sad day has come.

A while back I bought myself a GHD. It stands for ‘Good Hair Day,’ and essentially it’s a really expensive way to straighten your hair. They cost a hell of a lot of money. Like R2k a lot. So when I found one for about half that, I was really happy.

But now I’m sad. I’ve just found out mine is fake. A really, really, really good fake, but fake nonetheless. The only redeeming quality is that it still works, thus my hair is still awesome.

They even have GHD vending machines. Yes, they are that good.

Those close to me will tell you that I don’t anger easily. And when I do get angry, what the public see is usually nothing more than a mere grumble, grumble, swear-under-my-breath kind of vibe. Call me old-fashioned, but I subscribe to the school of bottling up your emotions. Or expressing them in blog.

But one of the few things that have worked me up in recent years, to the point of a shouting match with my housemate, was Proposition 8 in America. Proposition 8 was all over the news last year just before the November 8 General Election in America. Essentially what it came down to was whether or not the State of California would disallow gay marriage. That’s right. Gay Marriage was allowed, and Proposition 8 wanted to take that away.

Allowing gay marriage in California was a big step for the gay rights movement. Proposition 8 was approved after the November General Election, after receiving a hairline 52% victory. This decision by voters was taken to the Supreme Court, who ruled yesterday. I don’t mind those that oppose gay marriage. People’s views differ. Hell, I don’t even have a view on the cause. But here’s where I thought it all went horribly wrong: The way the proponents of Proposition 8 went about it.

What got my blood boiling was the arguments of the those in support of this ridiculous cause. And I quote:

If Proposition 8 is defeated, the sanctity of marriage will be destroyed and its powerful influence on the betterment of society will be lost. The defeat of Prop. 8 would result in the very meaning of marriage being transformed into nothing more than a contractual relationship between adults. No longer will the interests of children and families even be a consideration. We will no longer celebrate marriage as a union of husband and wife, but rather a relationship between ‘Party A’ and ‘Party B.’ The marriage of a man and a woman has been at the heart of society since the beginning of time. It promotes the ideal opportunity for children to be raised by a mother and father in a family held together by the legal, communal and spiritual bonds of marriage. And while divorce and death too frequently disrupt the ideal, as a society we should put the best interests of children first, and that is traditional marriage. Voting No on Proposition 8 would destroy marriage as we know it and cause profound harm to society.

Now you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to see that this is blatantly and utterly discriminatory. Other arguments included the argument that same-sex couples raising children would be more likely to raise criminals and drug addicts. WTF? Not to mention the storm on facebook. Some of it is nothing more that vindictive hatred towards homosexuals. Imagine if there was a proposition that wanted marriage only to be recognised between a white man and a white woman. An over-simplified example, I know, but that’s essentially what it boils down to.

The Supreme Court in America today finalised Proposition 8, ruling 6-1 that gay marriage will no longer be recognised in the state of California. This is a slap in the face to equality and gay rights the world over.

I’ve never been happier to live in South Africa.
