commented on SL Letter of the Day: I'm Out
If you think it would have been OK to call an African American the N-word or a gay man a F@gg€t in a similar situation, you're golden, because it arrives in women's ears with a similar level of historic hatred and threat.

I love that they think they're sending us into a deadly situation (statistically, school is the safest place we could all be), but they're ok with cutting our salaries year after year, and we get to PAY FOR OUR OWN TRAINING. Thanks, Republicans!

commented on One Eastern WA County Isn't Mostly Bigots
Straight lady from Benton County, here. I phone banked, door belled, and donated money for marriage equality because, duh. And I was involved in getting a school district to change it's LGBT club policy. 37% of people in Benton voted to approve 74. Most east side counties also had about 1/3 of their residents vote against bigotry. We're a minority over here, and 74 wouldn't have passed without us. Don't lump us all together with the bigots.

Carl Rove has used this very ploy to get the opposite effect in red states. We won't only be voting for president next fall; we'll also be voting for governor, so this might be Gregoire's parting shot at McKenna. Get the dems motivated to vote. WA's electoral votes will go blue, as always. The votes for governor ore less assured.
