Iowa Makes Gay Marriage Look Normal

04iowaspanThis Associated Press photo by Steve Pope in the New York Times made me realize that Iowa is making gay marriage look so normal.

Maybe the country really is warming up to the idea of same-sex marriage, just not California style.

I love my home state, but rally and protest pictures taken of Prop. 8 celebrations, gatherings, and protests look much more flamboyant… we’re tattooed, pierced, androgynous, transgendered, butch, femme, in drag, wearing leathers, feathers, and sequins, and all-in-all more radical.

I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, but I’m sure a good part of the country watches us on the news and finds us terrifying.

Iowa looks ’bout as scary as a church social. I’d let these good folk indoctrinate my children.
