Quotable Sunday

Toni over at A Daily Dose of Toni started Quotable Sunday!
We recently debated Gay Marriage on my forum, and yesterday I went to visit my old work friends, 2 of which are a lesbian couple, in love, devoted, monogamous and together for 12 years. Quite a feat in today's world. So my quotes today are about homosexuality.

"Disapproval of homosexuality cannot justify invading the houses, hearts and minds of citizens who choose to live their lives differently."
Harry A. Blackmun (American Supreme Court justice, 1908-1999

“What do you mean, you "Don't believe in homosexuality"? It's not like the Easter Bunny, your belief isn't necessary.”
Lea DeLaria

"No government has the right to tell its citizens when or whom to love. The only queer people are those who don't love anybody." ~Rita Mae Brown, speech, 28 August 1982

"Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself." ~Harvey Fierstein

If homosexuality is a disease, let's all call in queer to work: "Hello. Can't work today, still queer."
Robin Tyler

"I'm a supporter of gay rights. And not a closet supporter either. From the time I was a kid, I have never been able to understand attacks upon the gay community. There are so many qualities that make up a human being... by the time I get through with all the things that I really admire about people, what they do with their private parts is probably so low on the list that it is irrelevant." Paul Newman

"Labels are for filing. Labels are for clothing. Labels are not for people."
Martina Navratilova

"The important thing is not the object of love, but the emotion itself." ~Gore Vidal

I love this one:
If homosexuality is a disease, let's all call in queer to work: "Hello. Can't work today, still queer." LOL... Great idea for quotable Sunday. My brother is gay and has the MOST wonderful partner of 7 years so I'm a huge believer in gay rights!
