As much as I would love to see what would happen if every gay person in the Country Music industry just stayed home, the whole Day without Gay Day thing strikes me funny.
Not that I don’t think it’s a good idea, but you can still be fired for being gay in Tennessee. It’s perfectly legal.
So, if you had the guts to stay home today anyway, you have my admiration.
But it seems to me to kind of show a fundimental problem with where the Gay Rights movement is at the moment–in that depending on where you live, you might have a whole lot more rights than someone in another part of the country. So, the risks for someone in Tennessee calling out are a lot greater than the risks for someone in California.
Not that that means there shouldn’t be this kind of demonstration.
I don’t know. I’m torn.
