I is for Inequality

For the last few days I've been struggling with with what to write as my next "I" post for the Pagan Blog Project.  Last week I did "Invoke".  I felt strong and powerful as I invoked my Goddess down and filled my world with her powers.

Today I feel not so strong.  Today I was told by the voters of North Carolina that I am not equal to them.  The Inequality of this astounds me.  I pay taxes, I live and breath just as other's do here in my state but somehow LGBT love is not equal to straight.

We were told by not only a law.. but a solid Consitutional Amendment that we are not the same as heterosexual couples.  So today, today for my letter "I"  I'm defining Inequality. 

in·e·qual·i·ty

[in-i-kwol-i-tee] Show IPA
noun, plural in·e·qual·i·ties.
1.
the condition of being unequal; lack of equality; disparity: inequality of size.
2.
social disparity: inequality between the rich and the poor.
3.
disparity or relative inadequacy in natural endowments: a startling inequality of intellect, talents, and physical stamina.
4.
injustice; partiality.
5.
unevenness, as of surface.
 
Somehow, it feels the same as when we were told in California that our marriages were null and voide.
 
 
I am not null.  I am not void.  My love counts.  My love matters.
 
I can only hope that the tears that stream from my eyes now, will feed a fire that will grow inside me.  I hope that I will indeed take to heart this fight and continue to move forward with all that I have and all that I am.  We will not surrender, we will not give up. 
 
Love is love is love
