"Actually, I was raised by a gay couple and I'm doing pretty well."
- Zach Wahls
The writer of Towerload couldn't have stated it any better when he wrote on his blog, "The bigots need to just give up now because teens like Zach Wahls are the reason they will eventually lose."
I can't and will never understand how one person or a group of people can rob another human being of a fundamental right. It's just mind-boggling to me. "We held these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal," is simply false, and it was false back when it was written.
Slavery was running rampant, and almost every President, up until Lincoln owned slaves; George Washington himself had over one hundred. The point I'm trying to make is that everyone has rights in this country. Not just one particular group or person.
When I watched this video, I couldn't help but shed tears as I watched this young man describe what it means to be a family, what it means for him to be a son of two gay parents, who love and cherish their children. I don't understand why there is so much hatred from the Republicans who wish to overturn everything we try so hard to live for. All we want is to be treated equally, be given the rights bestowed upon us for being born in this country.
