It’s nothing personal, but Dallas County judge Tonya Parker does not perform wedding ceremonies for heterosexual couples looking to tie the knot. What is her reason? The state of Texas, along with 30 other states, does not currently allow same-sex marriage. Despite recent victories in places like Oregon and Pennsylvania, many states are still in court over the issue leading this openly gay judge to politely turn away couples until marriage is equal.
In an interview with the Dallas Voice, Parker said ,“I’m sorry. I don’t perform marriage ceremonies because we are in a state that does not have marriage equality, and until it does, I am not going to partially apply the law to one group of people that doesn’t apply to another group of people.”
While some are outraged, many applaud Parker, pointing out that same-sex couples have been denied marriages for years and that this is just an ironic dose of how homosexuals are treated.
Greg Abbot wants reparative therapy for LGBTQPA Texans! We need to spread the word on Tumblr so that he doesnt win the Texas Gubernatorial election. Wendy Davis plans to protect LGBTQPA Texans! Reblog so that other fellow Texans may see this and hopefully vote for Wendy!
I need somebody who doesn’t play games with my emotions, like I’m just a source of entertainment for them. I need someone who works for me & makes me work for them. I don’t want you just to hand me your heart, I want to earn it. I need somebody who doesn’t need me, but wants me. I need somebody who has their own life so I can obtain the privilege to be in it. I need a woman. not a girl. I want a future & I want her to be in it. I want to grow with someone & bring out the best in her. I want that.
