Today is a good day to be a human being. So I’m high fiving humanity.
Last week the Susan G Komen Fundation tried to strip funding from Planned Parenthood. The masses were outraged. The decision was reversed. The masses were unappeased. Today, Karen Handel (alleged leader in the defunding crusade) resigned. The masses are pleased, or at least somewhat pleased.
Then later today Califonia’s Prop 8 banning gay marriage was ruled unconstitutional.
Today, if just for today, I’m going to say we’re ahead. Today it’s not okay to deny equal rights to gay people. And today it’s not okay to tell women their bodies and lives can be sacrificed over politics.
Today I want to take some time to celebrate our wins.
Why do you want to high five humanity today? Or, if you can’t be brought to slap all those hands, whose hands deserve to get some skin?
