Goodbye, Blogspot. Hello, Wordpress.

For reasons of aesthetics and functionality, I've moved to WordPress.

There is a slight change in tone and there will be no comments.

I hope you are all well.

Just ignore him and maybe he'll go away.

Marriage Manifesto  

Posted by Ryan Sproull in ,

That was a good speech, Lloyd. If I was 25 and liked cock, we could be something.

A few years ago, in an attempt to demonstrate to my brother-in-law how stupid it was to call shitty things "gay" (slash "ghey"), I began referring to shitty things as "Christian". Can't make it to drinks tonight? Christian. Got a parking ticket? Christian. Someone stole your iPod? That's the Christianest thing that's ever happened to you!

Turned out to be fairly effective. So I appreciate Tom Ackerman's decision to make it clear to people that he no longer recognises marriages. If gay couples have to be called longtime companions or life partners or whatever, then so can everyone else.

Just replace the words husband, wife, spouse, or fiancé with boyfriend, girlfriend, special friend, or longtime companion. There is a reason we needed stronger words for more serious relationships. We know it; now they can see it.
