Definitely another rant on same-sex marriage.

OK, another religious guy takes over the quad area and talks about Jesus. He's exercising his right to freedom of speech. That's great.

He notices my pin that says "'I do' support the freedom to marry". He looks puzzled and I tell him that it's for gay marriage.

He said, "I'm pretty liberal about same-sex marriage. I believe a straight man should marry a lesbian woman, so she can become straight."

It's some great philosophy, not. He then asks me if I am a lesbian. I said, "Does it matter?"

"Yeah, it does matter, but you're too pretty to be a lesbian," he said.

This man of God apparently didn't read the part in the Bible where it said that we should not judge others.

"Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." -Mathew 7:1-2

Not only was he against same-sex marriage, but he was judging on appearance on how a lesbian woman would look like.

Sexual orientation shouldn't matter to anyone. I was not going to tell him I was straight or I was gay. If he truly believed in the word of God, then he would look past the differences we all have and see how good our hearts are.

My point is that it is a sad say when civil rights such as same-sex marriage is left to the majority who unfortunately think like this man. I'm sure if this man was asked if we are all equal in God's eyes, he would say "yes."

Remember the time when everything was separate, but equal in this country? This man is saying that the gay and lesbian community is equal in God's eyes, but they don't deserve the same rights as heterosexual couples to marry.

Chris Rock, the comedian, makes a light note that “gay people have as much of a right to be miserable as everybody else", so let gay people be as miserable in their marriages as straight couples are.

What I hate about Sac State

There are so many things I love about Sacramento State, from the lessons to the women to our own little Golden Gate. So many things to praise yet I leave every day full of rage. Full of questions as to why people do the things they do. Why they talk so loud on their cell phones, like they're in their own little private phone booth. Why they come to class all greasy like taking a shower makes taking calculus look easy.
I'm not saying everyone is on the line for these offenses, but if you wear pajamas to school you better get in line to start mending some fences. I can't tolerate peoeple who don't care about their appearance, take a little pride and pick some clothes to wear that you didn't buy on clearance.
Oh and if you decide that high-end designer track suit makes you look fine, please wear something that isn't going to give you that big fat granny panty line.
I don't think I'm being too demanding and I don't feel like I am being too harsh in my reprimanding. These are just things that people in college should know. I mean people don't wear bathing suits in the snow, or say "yes" when they really mean "no".
So please take the time to consider what the rest of us have to look at when you walk around campus. I don't care if you're having a bad day, you don't need to show up looking like something that crawled out of Loch Ness. We all have to do our part to keep Sac State pristine, so please, please don't wear something that will make me want to wash my eyes out with some Listerine.
There are so many things I love about Sac State, but it's so hard to concentrate when I can't stop thinking about all the things about it I hate.

Credit card etiquette

How hard is it to use a credit card? Why do so many people not know how to decide between debit and credit?

When working at a register and I ask "credit or debit?" it shouldn't be too hard to decide on which. Responding with "I don't know, doesn't matter or surprise me" isn't convenient, it's rude.

If it's debit, you might want to actually know what your pin number is. Asking the person at the register "what's my pin number" is ridiculous. I'm not a identity thief, why should I know what your pin number is? There are times I wished I knew, so I could empty out their account and give the money to charity. People guilty of stupidity in public deserve to lose money.

Standing in line gives plenty of time to decide how your going to pay. "I'll use credit, no wait, debit, wait, will my bank fine me?" is a response that happens far too frequently. I wish I could fine you for not knowing how to use a card.

Some people need to just carry cash. But then again some people can't count.
