As a blogger, I spend a good deal of time roaming around the internet, looking for things to write about. Today, I was quite surprised to find an article about the town in Michigan where I went to highschool, where my brother and sister have been raised, and where my parents still live.
Apparently, Janice Daniels the mayor of Troy Michigan wrote on her Facebook wall on June 25 (before her mayoral run) that:
"I think I am going to throw away my I Love New York carrying bag now that queers can get married there."
My response follows in the form of an open letter. Even having written it, I am still unsure if it really captures exactly what I feel. I am offended and ashamed by what she has said, but I cannot say I am surprised. What's more, I believe that I lack the rhetorical flaire to pull off a really good letter.
But I had to do something. Click here to read the whole letter.
