It has occurred to me during this session of the WV legislature that not only do some people not like gays and lesbians but they think about them a lot.
They think about them when it is daytime. They think about them when it is night.
They think about them when the sun is shining. They think about them when it rains.
They think about them in winter. They think about them in spring, summer and fall.
They think about them when the moon is waxing full and when it is waning. And they think about them during full and new moons.
They think about them when the redbud blooms and when the rivers frost.
They think about them when puppies play together and when kittens chase string.
In a word, they probably think about them way more than is healthy.
I could go on to say that they don't like them on a boat or with a goat, but you probably get the idea by now.
The most recent example of this is a resolution introduced in the WV senate that would make it illegal for local governments to pass nondiscrimination ordinances. Not to put too fine a point on it, but apparently it's not enough for some people to be mean; they want to legally compel others to be as well.
I hope at some point people who obsess about this kind of thing get over it. Or, failing that, that they at least get the memo that some of us aren't into their ****.
