Time and Place Start Time: Wednesday, December 10, 2008 at 12:00am
End Time: Thursday, December 11, 2008 at 12:00am
Location: Across the United States

DescriptionHow much are your rights worth?
Can we place a value on our equality?
Should we take a stand, even in these troubled economic times?

We are calling for a nationwide strike and economic boycott by all members of our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered community AND OUR STRAIGHT ALLIES on December 10th, 2008, International Human Rights Day.


Because LGBT workers, business owners, consumers and taxpayers contribute over $700 billion to the American economy and we deserve the same rights as all other Americans.

Because marriage is a basic human right for ALL Americans, regardless of gender, race OR religion. (See the US Supreme Court Case LOVING v VIRGINIA).


Strike! Call in gay, shut down your business, or just take the day off.

Boycott! Don't buy anything, spend money or support the economy.

Participate! Give back, fight back, build bridges to help raise awareness about marriage equality.
Fora list of things to do in your area, go to

The true and extraordinary story of Harvey Milk, the first openly gay elected politician and a galvanizing public figure who was assassinated in 1978. From the producers of AMERICAN BEAUTY and PUSHING DAISIES.

WHY THE NAME "A DAY WITHOUT GAYS"? The name was inspired by the film A DAY WITHOUT A MEXICAN and the nationwide strike in 2006 called A DAY WITHOUT IMMIGRANTS that protested against proposed immigration laws.

WHY STRIKE NOW? One day won't destroy the economy, but it will send a clear signal that we are serious about getting our rights. Also, strikes and boycotts are more effective in an economic downturn because business owners have more to lose.

WHY A STRIKE AND A BOYCOTT? These tactics have been successful in the past, from the Montgomery Bus Boycott to the anti-apartheid boycotts. Their actions often came at a great sacrifice but they were willing to risk everything for their rights.

WHAT IF I WILL GET FIRED? In fact, many states still do not have employment non-discrimination laws for gays and lesbians. If you are in fear of getting fired, go to work, but you can participate in the boycott by not consuming. Pack a lunch!

WHY NOT CIVIL UNIONS? Because Civil Unions are only legal in the state that offers them, Civil Unions don't include the 1100 marriage rights and benefits provided by the Federal Government. Finally, separate but not equal is discrimination.

ISN'T MARRIAGE A RELIGIOUS INSTITUTION? No. Because every couple in America has to get a marriage license issue from their state, whereas religious ceremonies are optional. In addition, no religion is or should be forced to marry anyone.

SHOULDN'T WE DEFEND MARRIAGE? Gays and Lesbians are embracing marriage. If you want to defend it, ban divorce.

WHAT ABOUT THE SANCTITY OF MARRIAGE? How sacred is marriage if over 50% of them end in divorce? Marriage became a legal institution once the law permitted certain rights and benefits to be ascribed to people who have engaged in matrimony.

WHAT ABOUT THE TRADITION OF MARRIAGE? Marriages used to be between a man and multiple women, a business deal where property was exchanged for a wife, banned in churches, arranged by the parents and for same race only.

WHAT ABOUT TEACHING KIDS ABOUT GAYS? Would you tell your kids they should not learn about the American Indians or the Holocaust or Christianity? How is this any different?

Have you ever been so sad, and depressed, and scared, but you don't know why? Maybe you start pushing people away that you love, or maybe putting on an exaggerated happy face? You go from having a great time to curled into a ball sobbing in 2 sec. flat sigh...

I couldn't resist..

Okay.. so i was searching for a current event for Sociology.. i dont know how much this makes sense.. but i love it.. so thank you makers of 'Dumb as a Blog'

Officials at the Canadian border stopped a New York man after he was caught with dozens of bottles of what he claimed was holy water. But when a police dog sniffed the H2O it turned out to allegedly contain ketamine, a powerful hallucinogenic widely used as a date rape drug, it appeared the water was a tad unholier than met the eye.

In case you are afraid that some shyster might try to trick you into thinking that ketamine was holy water, and you don't have a drug-sniffing dog handy, we are happy to present the following helpful list:


-Holy water is generally used for baptisms, by priests.
-Ketamine is generally used for rapes, by rapists.

-Holy water is sometimes called "blessed" or "sanctified" water.
-Ketamine is sometimes called "super acid," "black hole" or "cat valium."

-Holy water is never to be disposed of in regular plumbing.
-Ketamine gets flushed the minute the cops show up.

-Holy water is rumored to fend off vampires.
-Ketamine is useless against a vampire, unless you want to rape it.

Middle Child born first??

Okay SOOO technically i am the oldest in my family, but my siblings are so much younger then me, it kinda cancels that fact out. I kinda feel forgotten a LOT of the time.. it sucks. lol. Today happens to be one of those fun 'No one really cares' days. which yes i realize its very melodramatic.. but what can i say? Like.. well i don't need to share specific examples, but it'd be nice to be included once in a while.

In other news, I am in love with this song. So congrats Veronica's, Not only are you unnaturally beautiful and may ruin the self esteem of MILLIONS of girls, you do have an original sound. *clap clap clap*

Well.. The youth of our day are not completley hopeless!

So these little boys and girls are so cute!! i love that they are getting involved in the election. I want my kids to be like that!! No ignorant kids of mine will live to be 25. lol JK

And here are the lyrics!

Obama on the left
McCain on the right
We can talk politics all night
And you can vote however you like
You can vote however you like, yeah

Democratic left
Republican right
November 4th we decide
And you can vote however you like
You can vote however you like, yeah

(McCain supporters)
McCain is the man
Fought for us in Vietnam
You know if anyone can
Help our country he can
Taxes droppin low
Dont you know oils gonna flow
Drill it low
I'll show our economy will grow

McCain's the best candidate
With Palin as his running mate
They'll fight for gun rights, pro life,
The conservative right
Our future is bright
Better economy in site
And all the world will feel our military might

(Obama supporters)
But McCain and Bush are real close right
They vote alike and keep it tight
Obama's new, he's younger too
The Middle Class he will help you
He'll bring a change, he's got the brains
McCain and Bush are just the same
You are to blame, Iraq's a shame
Four more years would be insane

Lower your Taxes - you know Obama Won't
PROTECT THE LOWER CLASS - You know McCain won't!
Have enough experience - you know that they don't
STOP GLOBAL WARMING - you know that you won't

I want Obama
Stick with McCain and you're going to have some drama
We need it
He'll be it
We'll do it
Let's move it

Obama on the left
McCain on the right
We can talk politics all night
And you can vote however you like
You can vote however you like, yeah

Democratic left
Republican right
November 4th we decide
And you can vote however you like, I said
You can vote however you like, yeah

I'm talking big pipe lines, and low gas prices
Below $2.00 that would be nice

But to do it right we gotta start today
Finding renewable ways that are here to stay

I want Obama
Stick wit McCain you gone have some drama
Iran he will attack
We gotta vote Barack!

Obama on the left
McCain on the right
We can talk politics all night
And you can vote however you like, I said
You can vote however you like, yeah

Democratic left
Republican right
November 4th we decide
And you can vote however you like, I said
You can vote however you like, yeah

Oh the rage!! Oh the HORROR!!!

Okay so, I am taking a history seminar class, cool right? Well we are talking about radical movements of the 19th century, and we are currently on feminism. Now, all you women of the late 1800's, thanks for making it possible to be able to vote, all you women of the 1960's thanks for.. umm.. burning bras and attempting equal pay. I am not against those kind of feminists, you know the ones that belive in a cause and arent just being stupid about it. Like the 'feminists' in my school. They are just High and Mighty individuals that think they are better then the rest of us and i t pisses me off!

"I'm gonna go work, my kids can go to day care! or my husband can stay home, i don't care!" Yeah.. You are a bad person. If you have to work, fine. But if you can, only work part time, your kids need a mom.

"I am not doing all of the house work! Ew!! if my husband wants a clean house, He can do it!" Yeah.. you fail. so bad. Get off your lazy butt. because that is all you are, lazy. not devoted, not self sacrificing *sob* LAZY.

"Don't open the door for me! i have 2 arms!" God. I hate you. He can open the flippin door if he wants to, if you weren't prideful, you wouldn't care!! But alas, you are indeed.

"Don't touch that! I can reach it my self!! *Jump, Jump* I can DO it!! *go and gets a chair* Shut up * jump jump* I don't need it anyways." You are a terrible person do you know that? JUST because he is asking to help you, because he is taller, is NOT reason to get upset. Fail. F.

Now, i am pretty traditional, if i can, i will be full time stay at home mom until my last is in 1st grade. I will do the house work, i will make the meals etc. and not because i am lowering myself to "serve" my husband, but because that job is more important to me then any other outside job.

So for all you feminists that are actually feminist for a reason other then stupidity, Go you. Rock on. For the rest of you... Stop that. Right now.
