Just watched 8, and - I don't know what my words are doing. I don't think I have words for it.

It's... difficult to watch, but important. I'm not American and I'm not gay; I live in Europe, in a very liberal country where even most of the right-wing parties wouldn't dream of revoking marriage equality for fear of the backlash, but.

If my life had just been a little bit different, it could've been me. It still could be me, maybe.

(some days I hope so. I want to know what it is like to love.)

And yet it's difficult, because my sexuality won't ever (need to?) be acknowledged like that. It's just - not there. Not relevant, nonexistant, in this marriage debate. And it makes it hard for me to watch, but I want to anyway. It's necessary to know, how toxic other people can be, even if I can't grasp that myself.

For those who haven't watched the livestream, here is a link on YT: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=qlUG8F9uVgM
