I am the Valentine Fairy!

I just wanted to say that I have totally stolen this idea taken the advice of kungfumegadevil and am reclaiming Valentine's Day for my friends list:

If you're feeling down about Valentine's Day, I encourage you to do the same. Send valentines. Any kind; in comments and posts, in e-mail, in letters, by phone, over coffee. Forget those stupid relationships for a few hours and just give someone you love a little attention.

Everyone on my friends list has been so supportive the last few months, and I just wanted to say thank you, and say that Valentine's Day is about all the people you care about, not just one person you may or may not have in your life. Chocolate for everyone!

Marriage is love.


Appropriate for Valentine's Day, I think. I'm straight, as most of you have probably divined, but I think it's an important issue--particularly in light of that AFA poll that ended up "represent[ing] something other than what [they] wanted it to." It wasn't because "homosexual activists" got hold of it--it's because there really are more people, gay and straight alike, who support gay marriage than they think. That, and I'm tired of extreme Christian fundamentalist smackweasels making the rest of us look bad. I'm straight, I'm Christian, I believe in this, and I want them to know it. Thank you, that is all.
