Holland Is Effed

Almost all other big cities in Michigan have passed equality rights for LGBT but #Holland. Time to weigh in @hollandareacvb.

We will be watching online to see if @hollandareacvb takes to the podium on Wednesday (9/7/2011) at the council meeting to defend why an open and accepting community is vital in the new economy.  

It is time to break your silence and make a statement.  You don’t want the train of freedom to run you over, do you?  We are sure that would hurt a little and is not covered under Obamacare.

We can't help thinking about a few #HollandMI people we know who, to quote the Bard, "doth protest a bit too much." p.s. #SkinnyButthole Senators is a good name for a punk band.

“All men are created equal. No matter how hard you try, you can never erase those words.”

*Get ready councilmen and one woman of #HollandMI because NYC and LA are watching you along with a host of other cities.

It is time to vote for equality for all or spend the rest of this century explaining to your departing youth why you didn’t.

Our generation accepts the LGBT community and want to live in cities where equality is valued and written into the charter. We choose places that value all of our friends, not just a select few.

It is time to do the right thing by all Americans and protect these friends of ours. (ok?)

We wonder if you really are listening to be honest. Maybe it is time to get your hearing checked. We are sure it is covered under your health care.

#HollandMi Is Effed if they think they can stop love.
Because @andytowle noticed, we think others will too. Besides his blog is informative and fun. http://www.towleroad.com/2011/06/facebook-group-calls-for-boycott-of-holland-michigan-for-voting-down-lgbt-anti-discrimination-ordina.html  
Oh, last time I checked, Andy,  the site you mentioned in your article, they now have over 3,000 members now and no boycott. They are creative folks there in Michigan in spite of the crazy ass homophobes.
Time to revisit their site I think for a follow up story maybe?
Until the rust belt state of Michigan comes to terms with their “fear of the queer”, they may be delayed in their recovery.  
And this Holland thing is downright sad for these people.  I am sure Andy agrees even if the all white council panel in Holland cannot see that equality matters makes good financial “cents.”
Holland Is Effed until that day.
