In Orange County, California, Attorney Matt McLaughlin has submitted a bill for the ballot next November.
This bill would make it legal for gay men and women to be executed simply because they are gay.
I am all for free speech, but when a bill is presented to the voting public making it legal to kill someone because their sexuality, that is beyond wrong.
It is disgusting.
The constitution states the following: “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”. It does not state “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, but only if you are heterosexual”.
There are countries around the world where homosexuality is a crime. The punishment, even at the idea of being gay, at best to being thrown into prison and tortured. At worst, the punishment is execution. Iran is notorious to executing those who are perceived to be gay, even if they are not.
This should not be happening in the United States. But it is. And it’s disgusting.
In the annals of high school/teenage movies, Clueless stands out.
Funny, irresistible and and extremely quotable, Amy Heckerling transfers Jane Austen’s Emma and the inhabitants of rural 19th century English Highbury to mid 1990’s California.
Cher Horowitz (Alicia Silverstone) is the queen bee of her world. An only child, her mother is dead, her father Mel (Dan Hedaya) is a high priced lawyer. He has re-married and divorced at least once since his first wife’s death, keeping Cher’s ex-stepbrother, Josh (Paul Rudd) in the family.
Cher’s best friend Dionne (Stacey Dash) and her boyfriend Murray (Donald Faison) are constantly arguing. When Tai (the late Brittany Murphy) and Christian (Justin Walker) enter the story, Cher begins to see that she might be more clueless than she thinks she is.
I adore this movie. It’s funny and smart and still holds up after nearly twenty years. And after nearly twenty years, I still have closet envy. Who doesn’t want a closet with a computer that helps you to choose your outfit for the day?
