Weekend in T-Town

Most weekends I escape to my home in Broken Arrow. Well, I don’t spend much time at my house to my parents dismay. There is usually something fun shaking in Tulsa. This weekend was no exception.

My friend asked my if I would be her date to her best friends wedding. She was the maid of honor. I agreed and the wedding festivities began this weekend. Dinner at Ted’s Escondidos, beautiful wedding at the First United Methodist Church downtown, reception at the swanky Escargot’s and most importantly, BAR HOPPING WITH A WOMAN IN A WEDDING DRESS

Around 7 pm, we loaded up and left the Blue Dome district and headed over the large bridge that connects downtown toward our regular nightly hangout, Caz’s Tavern. We chose to get to Caz’s early for the long awaited equality parade (Gay pride)

Did you know that Tulsa has the second highest gay population per capita in the nation behind San Francisco?

In keeping with the theme of this first official post, I’ll leave you with an interesting list I found on the blog Guy Dads. You should check out the blog. It’s pretty interesting. I think the list is fitting for my weekend. -Maximo

Twelve Rational Reasons Why Same-sex Marriages Will Ruin Society and Should Be Constitutionally Outlawed

1. Homosexuality is not natural. (Like immunizations, birth control and taxes – these unnatural things have no place in our society. If it is different from what I wish to consider normal, then I will call it unnatural.)

2. Only heterosexual marriages are valid because only they can produce children. (This is why we do not allow infertile couples and old people to marry. And fertility testing is required before heterosexual couples are allowed to marry in order to comply with the ‘one child policy’.)

3. Gay parents will only end up raising gay children. (Just as straight parents only raise straight children.)

4. Same-sex marriage will tarnish the institution of marriage. (Just as Britney Spears’ two-day ‘just for fun’ marriage. Or popular TV shows ‘Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire’, ‘The Bachelor’, and ‘Who Wants to Marry My Dad’ condones marrying complete strangers for game show fame and money.)

5. Heterosexual marriage is traditional. (That’s why women are still property and can’t vote. And why Blacks are kept as slaves and are not allowed to marry.)

6. Same-sex marriage is an issue that should be decided by people, not the courts. (Because ‘the People’, not the courts, have historically protected the rights of minorities, just ask Native Americans, African-Americans and Asian-Americans.)

7. Same-sex marriage is not supported by religious teachings. (In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are always imposed on the entire country. This is why we only have one religion in America.)

8. Same-sex marriage will only encourage straight people to be gay. (In the same way that hanging around tall people makes you tall.)

9. Legalizing same-sex marriage will open the door for all kinds of perverted behaviors, like people marrying their pets. (Because dogs and cats are recognized as citizens and can legally sign contracts and marriage licenses.)

10. Children cannot grow up to be functioning adults without both male and female role models at home. (This is why it is illegal for single parents to live with their children.)

11. Civil unions, providing most of the same benefits as marriage with a different name are better. (‘Separate but Equal’ institutions are always constitutional. Separate schools, lunch counters and water fountains worked for African-Americans. It will work just as well as separate marriages for homosexuals.)

12. Homosexuality is a lifestyle choice that does not merit special rights of marriage. (Being gay-bashed, called ‘faggot’, and ostracized by family, friends and church is a fabulous choice for expressing your identity and who you love. Other protected lifestyle choices such as Baptist, Catholic or Republican are just not challenging enough.)

    You know that Ted’s originated in OKC right? That’s all!
