Faith in humanity has been restored!

I always keep telling how much I hate people and how pissed off they make me. Today, for a change, I must say that the faith in humanity has been restored. 

Last night a legislative motion for equal marriage law started. The minimum need of names is 50 000, but during one night and half a day, we have got almost 77 000 signatures!!! SEVENTY-SEVEN THOUSAND. I'm so happy right now, I have a feeling that we will FINALLY get an equal marriage law in Finland.

I have always had this huge need to defend gay-, bi-, lesbian- and transsexual people and their rights. I can't stand it when someone says a bad word about these people. If this happens, I just snap. In my opinion, every kind of people have the right to get married in front of God and have/adopt children. I don't understand why these lovely and beautiful opportunities must be taken away from people who are somehow "different". It makes me very sad. Finland is the only Nordic country that doesn't have an equal marriage law. Yes, gay people can register their relationship but what the fuck is that supposed to mean?? They have the same responsibilities as married couples, but they do not have the same rights as married couples. Bullshit, I say.

The signatures are collected until September. We have a loooot of time, and with this pace, things look pretty good!! <3
