So recently, there was a news story about a group of gay men in New York who were glad that a Chick-Fil-A was coming to their town. For, what I think is an irrational reason, the gay community suddenly became livid.
As many are aware, Chick-Fil-A, the company, is led by a bigot – Dan Cathy.
Regardless of the views of Dan, my husband and I enjoy eating at Chick-Fil-A when we do go. We wouldn’t recommend their new grilled chicken as the classic tends to taste better, but I won’t stop eating there.
Plus, the peach shake is back! Come on, who can resist a shake made with real, delicious, pieces of peach in it!?
In chatting with Mom today, I suddenly noticed that we both were using the spelling “grey” instead of the more-traditional spelling “gray” in America. A quick google search found the following article which goes into more detail regarding the usages of both spellings around the world. It’s a quick read and interesting to see that although both are proper, their usages do vary based on where you are.

Today, in an email from Indiana Equality Action, I learned that there are 614 rights and responsibilities denied to Justin and I as we are not able to get married in the State of Indiana. These are on top of the 1,138 rights and responsibilities granted at the Federal level. So now we’re up to 1,752 ways I am being denied rights and responsibilities at both the State and Federal levels of government.
How can anyone reasonably claim that to not be discrimination?

As stated in the video, what if it were illegal to be tall or have a certain type of eye color? That is the kind of prejudice that I go through at times. I am glad to work at Purdue University where that is not an issue at all, however I face discrimination whenever I think about how I cannot marry the man I love because of immigration issues and how many rights and responsibilities we are denied because of that.
