But definitely "Made in the USA"!!!
I hadn't made a caption for Totalditz in quite some time, and and was thinking about trying to rectify that when I came across this picture and thought it was perfect for her. She likes to be changed into teenage girls and all the fluff that goes along with it. I looked at the shirt and thought, "what is more American than Apple Pie?" .. "definite the girl-next-door which was exactly what this young lady looked like to me, just innocence in denim shorts.
Since there has been a big debate, and many strides made, within the gay and lesbian community here in the USA over the last year or two, I wanted to reflect the changes that have been going on. It seems like a majority of people are now, at the very least, resolved to the fact that gay marriage WILL become a reality in the next few years, as the judicial system keeps striking down "marriage protection" laws that were passed to try to keep lesbians and gay men from "ruining society".
Anyway, there is a small contingent of people that still like to stir up the pot and picket weddings, funerals, and the like, and sometimes I wonder if they are actually FOR anything, as opposed to AGAINST everything. I use people like this often in my captions, and I have come to the conclusion that perhaps they don't DESERVE the right to be changed how I've changed them .. but the world would probably be changed for the better if I had that magic wand in my hand to do so.
Perhaps what we need is some sort of government program, to mentor these bigots and show the how people different fro their own "culture" can handle the diversity of real life. We just need a bunch of LGBT people to get involved with, "Adopt an Close-Minded Asshole" and at some point, each of these folk will be able to KNOW and UNDERSTAND on a personal level that for the most part, we all share common goals and concerns for our future on this planet.
