For those in our queer community who are genuinely incensed at how gays' are celebrating finally having the right to marry, I say "To each their own", but for all of those who are speaking against gay marriage being approved because it's somehow "bourgeoisie" let me ask you something.
Speaking as a queer descendent of slaves, did it ever occur to any of you who are affronted that maybe your conflation of marriage rights with "selling out" is a bourgeoisie thought process in itself?
In other words', until you have had the life altering experience of having to look up your ancestors' records' of births, deaths' (including lynchings'), and life partners' through countless "bill of sale" records, sit down, relax, and be happy for 5 minutes that a large segment of our nation's population now has rights' that were non-existent to them only last week.
Your sense of elitist privilege is starting to show.
I am adding this:
The Happiest day of my life. It was and still is the most perfect day.
