Do your children make you proud?

This made me cry. I am so glad that there are people like him that stand up for this terrible GOBAL problem. We are more closed minded about sexuality NOW than in the past. And we call ourselves modern and declare our countries as having progress.

When the facts show just different. I am so sick of people discriminating against those that are "different". It's time we accept the fluid world. We all have different genders, sexualities, wealth, ethnicities, races and religion (plus whatever I missed).

I hope my influence and other supporters make a difference. It's time we show ourselves that we are educated and cultured people. That it 2011 and we are people that can progress into a new age!

I am so proud someone like him exists!!! And hope my children have the same strength to stand up for what is right.

Dear Nina,

This video brought me to tears too!
I second everything you wrote.
Just for the record, he was testifying in front of the Iowa House of Representatives who are trying to reverse the law and make Gay Marriage illegal in that state.
It scares me that people allow Republicans and Tea Baggers use our civil rights for their personal political gain.
I can't even think what would happen to us if Sarah Palin is elected to office ...
It will be hard to look Zach on his face with the argument that Gay parents can't raise good children.


Thanks for your comment

I can't stop watching...

We have history on our side. Things are changing, but the hate coming from the opposition is shameful.

Jim,

It is shameful, we need more people to see stories like this and to understand that equal rights are used by opportunistic politicians for personal gain, harming innocent people along the way.

Yes, Jim, only people like him will be able to show the haters and the ignorant that we are just like them...
We need more Zach Wahls in the world...
