“I let it go. It’s like swimming against the current. It exhausts you. After a while, whoever you are, you just have to let go, and the river brings you home.”—Joanne Harris, Five Quarters of the Orange (via wordsnquotes)
A married lesbian couple in Michigan suffered from a horrific series of hate crimes recently, and the description is cringeworthy.
Thieves broke into the lesbian couple’s home in Kalamazoo, Michigan, stole items, destroyed their wedding photos and wrote anti-gay slurs on the walls.
Included in the messages written in graffiti on the walls were “move or die,” and other messages.
This couple was obviously targeted because they’re gay. However, the police can’t pursue this as a hate crime because Michigan law doesn’t protect against hate crimes based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
This terrifies and infuriates me all at once. My heart goes out to these poor women.
