I hate apartment hunting. I want an apartment as big as our current one near the gayborhood for a reasonable price. Danny wants one with a washer and dryer in the unit and doesn’t want to park on the street. We both want central air and a landlord that doesn’t suck. All the large apartment complexes want outrageous amounts for tiny apartments. We are therefore forced to use Craigslist with all the difficulty that entails.

I was driving through an apartment complex today on my way to meet a client and noticed three police cars and a medical examiner’s van. That’s the first time I’ve ever seen such a van, which I suppose is a good thing.
I am really rather sick of people using their religious beliefs as an excuse to discriminate against LGBTQ people. If I have a sincere religious belief (say, based on the Bible) that women should be subservient to men, the law does not allow me as a business owner to forbid my female employees from supervising men. The laws in the 1960s did not allow people with sincere religious beliefs that blacks were inferior to whites to discriminate on that basis, either, nor should they have.
You are certainly entitled to your religious beliefs, however bizarre or repugnant. But trying to claim that your rights are being violated by laws (including marriage laws) that grant equal rights to LGBTQ people is simply disingenuous. You don’t get the right to discriminate against LGBTQ people any more than you do against other minorities, regardless of your beliefs.
This is a reminder that I do have an ask box, and I don’t bite…usually.
The office assistant at work described me as her “sunshine,” for being happy and pleasant all the time, and my former boss described me as “cheerful.” Apparently I am a different person at work.
