dan and i just saw the movie milk at the kendall square cinema
it was great. you should see it too.
i didn't know who harvey milk was before the movie came out.
i also didn't realize exactly how horrible our country has been to gay people.
like, back then, they had prop 6 on the ballot to try to get all homosexual teachers fired. (!)

this movie certainly came out at an appropriate time.
and a lot of the anti-gay proposition backed by religious groups sounded familiar.

i still wonder, what exactly is marriage doing in our government anyway?
marriage has always seemed like a religious thing.
to me, it makes sense to get religion out of our government.
give everyone (including me who will probably marry a dude) civil unions with hospital, adoption, etc rights.
and then if some bigoted churches still wish to have "traditional family values"
well fuck 'em
gay people can get married at a different, nicer church

i started using a new cell phone (my mom's old cell phone) this term
i like it but it doesn't open and close, it's just one flat thing
with buttons sticking out
so sometimes my backpack calls people
or my pocket calls people
