Cities and suburbs, real and imaginary.

A thought...

Two consenting adults decide they want to be the ones to define their lives, in a manner that causes absolutely no harm to any other living being on the planet, and to make their families in their own way and on their own terms.

However, because some folks' religions do not believe that what those consenting adults are trying to do is in accord with some holy books, some folks vote overwhelmingly to stop it. The people they just stopped are *not* members of the church. Thus the community has imposed a religious viewpoint upon another community with no unifying religion to speak of.

Thus, something that causes no harm to others is illegal. People are not permitted to create the defining terms of their own lives.

I'm not talking about gay marriage. I'm talking about children with silly haircuts.

In Mesquite, TX, it is illegal for children to have silly haircuts.

Adults should be allowed to define silliness for themselves.

Also silly, gay marriage's illegality.

The New Year is coming soon. Will this be the year where gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered couples are permitted to give their children silly haircuts in Mesquite, TX?
