Today, in the headlines of the Village Voice, you could discover the 100 most powerless New Yorkers oppose to all most powerful lists which are always about rich and famous people.
The Village Voice has decided to talk about people like you and me, and among them we find the number 22, Tiffany Cocco, a young lesbian homeless.
I don’t understand how some cultures, religions or people can tell other people whom they can or cannot love. Here in America the text of the second section of the Declaration of Independence reads: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
Article 1 of the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS states: All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of humanity."
How could there possibly be any legal question or argument to prohibit the right of some to love?

Just because more states are starting to allow Gay marriage, it doesn't mean you should just rush right into things. There are more things to consider than just whether or not your new spouse will love you 'til death do us part.
Now instead of just tossing your crap out on the front lawn, you have to worry about your new spouse getting mad and chopping off your jewels.
Better start sleeping with a steel chastity belt...and make sure it's locked tight.
