Marriage Equality

I am so proud to be the nanny for a same-sex family. (Just like I was so proud to stand by my best friend as he went from an awkward confused teen to a gorgeous, slightly less awkward (lol) openly gay man) It is such a joy to go to work everyday and getting to spend time in their loving, happy, frequently hilarious home.
But everyday I get so incredibly sad when I look at their sweet, brilliant, innocent little girl and think there are people out there who would prefer to see her family destroyed.
I’m trying to work on my anger issues, but I’ve decided not to fight the rage I feel towards the people and policies that discriminate against many of the most significant, loving, kind and amazing people in my life.
Anyone who believes this is a truly free county is sadly disillusioned. And anyone who believes this is okay should be ashamed of themselves, and I hope one day they feel what it is like to have their basic liberties and rights denied.
I am ashamed of my country for allowing these civil injustices to continue for so long.

If Swift keeps talking shit about my Tina I’m going to lose my cool…

Dear Taylor Swift,

Ignore the fact I think you are ridiculous and that Kanye interrupting your acceptance speech was one of my favorite moments of all time. But when two of the most talented female comedians of our time (perhaps of ALL time) make a joke at your expense during an award show and you get mad it’s because you are too stupid to understand the true meaning of the joke or have too great of an ego to accept that putting yourself in the public eye leaves you wide open for this type of criticism (and, knowing Tina Fey, it could have been WAY worse).

For you to have the audacity to suggest Tina Fey deserves to go to hell for what she said about you makes you a terrible, petty person…. not that we didn’t already know that.

Tina Fey is a goddess and you do not have the right to utter her name, let alone say one bad word towards her.

Tina is feminist. You are not.

Please, understand this.
