Today is National Coming Out Day
which aims to raise awareness of the kinda screwed up laws we have about having The Gay™ in America. Did you know that in 36 out of our 50 states, if you tell your boss you're gay and you get fired over it, it's totally legal
? One person has proposed that this day also be Gay for Pay Day
, to protest the payment of income taxes to a government that doesn't protect their right to be and is actively trying to forbid their own marriages.
