Pondering the Get Over Its...
Let’s jump right in, shall we?
I was reading an article on the protests against Proposition 8 and several comments carried the “You lost – get over it!!” theme in support of Prop. 8.
I can’t even imagine the kind of life that lets a person think rights are decided like a hockey game tied after overtime. I’m thinking a person has to be pretty fucking blessed to feel comfortable with a winner takes all shoot-out. Shit, a bitch isn’t exactly comfortable with that solution during hockey games.
I mean, does that world view have limits?
Would the Get Over Its respond to everything that way?
I can just see them as characters in my new favorite television obsession, Battlestar Galactica.
“We’ve been invaded by Cylons! We lost - let's get over it!!”
Anyhoo, this bitch suspects that these Get Over Its are also fans of gradualism. They probably think women would have gotten the vote…eventually. People of color would have gotten civil rights…simply with the passage of time. The Cylons would have come to regret their world domination and leave the humans alone…after a century or two.
Well, my people call that bullshit.
Patience ain’t a virtue in the struggle for equality and this bitch will not be getting over a motherfucking thing.
