did you know it's legal to fire someone because of their sexual orientation in 33 states?

yep, disgusting. gay marriage is a far dream away. at least in this world of corporate conglomerates, if you work for a big company, chances are they might be opposed to that and you won't be able to.

also depressing in today's new york times:

Ugh. I really hate the homophobia of this country.
