it's a really cool picture. And the rest is mostly f-locked. Friend if you want to, I don't mind. Who wants a banana?
Warning: Some things might be capslock heavy. The internet(s) has forever ruined me in terms of speaking in a normal way. Or typing. Content might also be odd? weird? Not of much content. The only highly intelligent thing I ever wrote was either the porn or the introduction  to the dutch school system.

I've also spread myself out over the world, bit by bit and slowly but not so surely. I'm just the pieces of a scattered  image of myself.

Here is where you can find the rest of me.

Sorry to be so rudely wandering in, but I hate to see misinformation being spread without doing my best to correct it and I can't respond to your comment at rosiedoes's post as the last time I checked she doesn't allow commenting from non-friends, and I am not one. She does not have a clear understanding of what marriage means in America, which is not all that surprising since it is not her own country, but I feel like it would appalling for me, as an American, to allow her to mislead others with her misunderstanding.

In America, marriage in the eyes of the law and in the eyes of a church are two separate things. A legal marriage has, of itself, no religious connotations, and a church wedding has, without also being accompanied by a legal document, no legal standing. These two types of unions often coincide, but they are not legally tied to each other. The fact that a marriage is legal is IN NO WAY an obligation for any church to perform the wedding. Churches are private institutions and it is entirely legal for them to turn anyone away for whatever reasons they see fit. Legal gay marriages would NOT require any church to recognize them against their will.

Additionally, on the matter of civil unions, which I would be more than happy to see, the primary problem with them in the US (aside from the zealots who hate gay people) is that many of the constitutional amendments that have passed in various states to disallow gay marriage specifically state that no institution LIKE a marriage (i.e. civil unions) can be legally recognized either.

Thank you for your time and I apologize for the intrusion.

Ehm. I was totally not aware of this. I do believe that someone in her comments links to a site which shows the differences between Marriage and Civil unions. Is there a difference between Civil Unions and Marriage of the/ before the Law? Because your comment has made me think that it is so.

I'm still not against Prop. 8. I'll always wish for the Americans to actually start upholding that pledge of theirs: "With liberty and justice for all"

Do you wish for me to to tell her this, this being your comment? Because I'm willing to do so.

You're not intruding at all, I'm glad to have some more clarification.

There are currently very different rights for civil unions and marriages in America. Which rights those are varies depending on the state (I'm not terribly well-versed on the specifics since my state doesn't allow same-sex civil unions at all).

The most important difference in rights between the two forms right now is that civil unions are not federally recognized, providing no national tax or family benefits that straight couples are entitled to.

Also, whatever rights the civil unions grant are valid only in the state where they were performed. If a couple moves to another state, their civil union will not be upheld.

"Liberty and justice for all" would be a beautiful thing indeed.

You're more than welcome to share any of this with icedmaple if you feel this is information she would like to hear about. If it would upset her or be too awkward then please don't feel in any way obligated!

So a civil union is completely different from a marriage before the law.

I think we have the same thing,or well something that's sort of the same. It's a contract people get when they're living together. As a form of confirming that they are living together, and it gives some legal benefits (small country, so, no hassling with states about this).

I did tell her about it, since I dont think it's offensive information at all. Sometimes people can be wrong. She hasn't responded yet though.
