Hey, how bout the time you told me that you were clearing all the room mates out of your house, and creating a space to make room for family and that “next phase” in your life?
And then hey, how bout that time you designed a beautiful engagement ring, asked my parents for their permission, and proposed to me… And then how bout that time you pulled me aside after we walked off the red carpet, at the AFER Elton John event, one month after getting engaged, and explained to me that the press asked you a questions about that time a year ago when you said you weren’t going to get married until there was equality for all.
And in the moment, all you could think to do was re-affirm to them that, that was still the case.
Hey how bout COMMUNICATING?
I supported your decision in that moment, and did not miss a beat, to stand by my man. But after a while, when things started falling apart. It was not because I didn’t believe in equal rights, or because I wasn’t a big enough advocate for a number of causes.
Take some responsibility. I ALWAYS communicated my desire for kids and family. No one forced you to propose.
Have some respect.
***AND FOR THE RECORD: I DO SUPPORT MARRIAGE EQUALITY. EVERYONE DESERVES TO LOVE AND BE LOVED, IN WHATEVER, WHICHEVER WAY THEIR HEART DESIRES.
