The impact of societal pressure

A dear friend of mine posted about her experience as a straight woman who was once married to a gay man, explaining how societal and religious pressure to conform put both she and her husband in a bad position. If only we would let each other be who we are, so many hearts would be spared from heartache.

Check out her blog post here.

Other disturbing but ridiculous news: the North Carolina House of Representatives passed an amendment defining marriage to be only between a man and woman. Not only is there an almost identical law already on North Carolina’s books, but this just goes to show the lack of tolerance of the state. Very sad, indeed.
