Another entry today..because we need to change something here!  
Sonoma County CA separates elderly gay couple and sells their home


How can this happen? Don´t we have 2010 right now? This is just so WRONG!
It doesn´t matter that I´m no American, this is something that happens all around the world on a daily bases, I´m sure about that..I am too angry for words, just wanted to pass this on...thanks to Mandy (a_phoenixdragon ) for posting this.

Please sign the competition, maybe we can do something about it..it´s not only that it happened to a gay couple, but it sure as hell is about human rights...imagine you get seperated from your loved ones like that and everything you owened has been sold to God knows where. You couldn´t spend your last months together, because maybe you weren´t married "correctly" to each other and so you don´t have any rights about whatsoever...shouldn´t the years you spent together count somehow as well? Seriously, we have to raise our voices and tell them to go the hell with their stupid laws - that´s the only way we can make a change!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Different topic, but still sad...one of my cousin Anna´s rabbits died today. I have no clue why - all I know is that my granny found him...REST IN PEACE BUNNY! You´ll be missed! ♥ Of course Anna is very sad about it, but she´s willing to get a new pal for Sunny..of course he can´t stay all alone.. :(

Bunny is the one in the front - with the brown-ish ears...RIP little fella!

WHAT??? I don't even have words to express how sad and angry this makes me....! That's just... that's just.... GAAAAAAAAH.

*storms off to sign the petition*

Oh and I'm sorry about the bunny :-(( I just know too well how that feels *sigh*
He was truly a cutie! RIP.

Same here..I just have no clue what to say, it´s just so unfair and wrong..

Thanks sweetie! *hugs you close*

Aww thank you so much..If we´d only knew what had happen..he was only a little over a year old...now I feel guilty for always liking Sunny more..*sigh*

tinkabell007tinkabell007 on April 19th, 2010 02:54 pm (UTC)
Just x-posted it on my journal, too.

Awww and don't feel guilty!! *hug* That is life and it's not that you didn't like him. So, there is nothing to feel guilty about. It's just always sooo sad when stuff like this happens - especially with him still being so young. *sigh*
Andrea: Sam - I lost my shoelupina78 on April 19th, 2010 02:59 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! We need to spread the word! *huggles*

*hugs back* Oh I liked him a lot, but Sunny has been my fave from day one..don´t know why..Sunny always was the smaller, cuter one and somehow the more "cuddly" one..Bunny always was kind of a rebel..a very cute one though..*sigh* You´re right, that´s life and at least he had a great year at my cousin´s place, with a lot of space to run around..

USA is full of idiots. That's all I can say about it. I cannot comprehend how idiotic California has been about gay marriage. That story is so sad.

I feel so sad about your cousins bunny. :(
Andrea: Sam - I lost my shoelupina78 on April 19th, 2010 03:37 pm (UTC)
I guess it´s not only an USA thing..I mean, even a "normal" partnership isn´t accepted here in Austria...my parents aren´t married and let´s say something happens to my Dad, my Mum gets nothing at all..they´re together for over 30 years..why doesn´t a partnership count as much as a marriage? It´s crazy - so basically you marry someone bc it´s more convenient or I don´t know..and don´t even get me started about gay rights...it´s ridiculous what Austria calls "gay rights" at all..I swear it feels like we´re in the 1950´s or such..*sigh*
It´s so incredibly sad what happened to those two men..when will the law acknowledge love as something that´s not bound to male/female..*shakes head*

Aww thank you! *hugs* I can´t believe it either..a few days ago I saw him running around and being a happy bunny, don´t know why he had to die.. :(

*hugs you*

Hadleyewlyn on April 19th, 2010 03:55 pm (UTC)
Here, in the US, in most (all?) states, if you are with someone for over X number of years it is counted as a civil union (I think that's what it is called) and treated similar to a marriage... assuming one person is male and one is female. *sigh* So messed up.

*hugs you back*
Andrea: Damon/Stefan <3lupina78 on April 19th, 2010 04:01 pm (UTC)
Well, that´s more than we have..*sigh* But yeah..ignoring gay partnership is one of the stupidest things ever..let´s hope future generations are a little more tolerant and wiser..I really hope that.
     Mandy: Finally the Huga_phoenixdragon on April 19th, 2010 03:41 pm (UTC)
Dude - I am so glad you passed this on!! Thank you thank you...

Alot of what they did WAS illegal - by human and elderly rights standards alone. They ignored court issued papers and treated these people as sub-humans. Frigging disgusting!

Awww...RIP bunny..

*hugs you fierce*
Andrea: Dean/Sam Love is...lupina78 on April 19th, 2010 03:46 pm (UTC)
You´re welcome!
There´s no way of not passing this on..it´s way too important to be ignored! We have to get as many people´s attention as possible..

Bunny (and yes, that really was his name) will be terribly missed...
*is sad*

*hugs you too*
Tareena aka Monte: prideloco_lobo on April 19th, 2010 04:01 pm (UTC)
guh, sometimes humanity just PISSES ME OFF *rage*

hopefully that bill or whatever Obama's trying to push thru that will give gays equal rights with medical stuff like this will pass soon...won't help this couple much, sadly, but it might stop it from happening again :(
Andrea: Jensen *hug*lupina78 on April 19th, 2010 04:14 pm (UTC)
Exactly! It´s like some people don´t think at all..it´s absolutely rude to take away someone´s rights like that..not only seperating them, but also selling all their stuff - hell, that´s illegal!
I really hope he succeeds with it, so that something like this doesn´t happen again..it won´t help the two of them, but maybe it helps others..

Our politicians like to discuss how to get equality by calling some professions name different...you may have waiter/waitress but what about a clerk or a cook? It´s not called clerkess or cookess or something, and that bothers them to no end..or the best thing..the women working in childcare are called "Aunt" for generations now..but suddenly the kids aren´t allowed to say "Aunt Mary" bc that undermines the respect of those women...the kids have to call them "Miss Pedagogue" Yeah right..LOL But pleease don´t discuss the matter of gay rights..that´s not half as important...*sarcasm inside*

*sigh*

Das ist unglaublich gefühllos, aber leider nichts, was nur homesexuellen Paaren blühen kann.
Meine Nachbarin hat vor Kurzem ihren Vater bei sich aufgenommen. Er ist wohl so 70-80 Jahre alt und fängt an sehr senil zu sein. Bis dahin hat er, nach dem Tod seiner Frau vor zehn Jahren, mit seiner Lebensgefährtin zusammen gewohnt. Sie ist etwas älter als er und "hilfebedürftiger". Er hat alles übernommen und ist sogar in ihr Haus gezogen (seines hat er damals verkauft und das Geld an seine Kinder verteilt). Weil er ihr bei allem half, hat ihr Sohn nichts dazu gesagt. Jetzt aber ist er eben auch pflegebedürftig geworden und ihr Sohn will plötzlich in sein Elternhaus ziehen, aber nicht mit diesem fremden Mann! Also hat ihr Sohn seine pflegebedürftige Mutter (an deren Zustand sich seit zehn Jahren nichts geändert hat) jetzt auf einmal in eine Pflegeheim einweisen lassen und der Mann durfte sehen, was er macht. Er ist senil, aber nicht in der Pflegestufe, die er braucht für das Heim. Also konnte er nur zu seiner Tochter ziehen und die Beziehung, die Pflege, all die Gefühle, die er jetzt seit zehn Jahren investiert hat, sind für die Katz gewesen.
Meine Nachbarin ist richtig sauer gewesen. Sie hätte gerne von ihrem Erbe Geld bezahlt, damit sie beide zusammen in ein Heim hätten gehen können, aber der Sohn wollte das nicht. Er trennt lieber das Paar.
Reizend oder?

Schade für das Hasi!

*hugs*
Andrea: Spring treelupina78 on April 19th, 2010 06:44 pm (UTC)
Ja ich weiß..leider ist alles was keine "Ehe" ist nicht anerkannt. Ist bei meinen Eltern ja auch so. Die beiden leben zwar seit über 30 Jahren in einer Lebensgemeinschaft, sind aber nicht verheiratet..(hat diverse Gründe - geht mich nix an LOL) Aber sollte meinem Papa was zustoßen, geht sie komplett leer aus, 34 Jahre hin oder her..

Der Fall deiner Nachbarin ist absolut erschütternd..da hat sich der Mann aufopfernd um seine Lebensgefährtin gekümmert und wird dann quasi "abgeschoben"..es ist ja meist auch so dass die Lebensumstände der Töchter/Söhne es oft nicht erlauben, einen alten, pflegebedürftigen Menschen zu Hause zu pflegen. Und dass der Sohn das Angebot nicht angenommen hat, finde ich extrem gefühlskalt..wenigstens wären die beiden wieder zusammen gewesen - wäre für den Gesundheits- und Gemütszustand von beiden bestimmt gut gewesen..echt arg! Ich hoffe der wird mal genauso abgeschoben!

Jaaaaa allerdings..armes Ding!

*hugs*

I saw this on a post by SSDDGR and I left a comment there also. But I will do it again here.

This is so stupid Not to respect the choices other people make in their lives. It is not as though you have to do what they do. Why can't People not just let other People in peace in whatever way they choose to.

In the Netherlands we have gay marriages for some time now and I haven't heard anything like this happening here. We have famous gay people and the are married and are accepted just as they are.

I sign any petition on this subject for equal rights.

♥ So sorry for the loss of Bunny *hugs*

Andrea: Cat-huglupina78 on April 19th, 2010 06:52 pm (UTC)
YAY! I´m glad to see it spreading around - it´s important to get it to as many people as possible.

Exactly. With love there can´t be any laws about "right" or "wrong" kind of love..I don´t see why partnership should be something minor than marriage..
I am very happy that at least the Netherlands are wise enough to respect that - but you guys always have been tolerant and open minded - wished the rest of the world would take The Netherlands as a role model. You are still weird here if you are gay - it´s absolutely ridiculous..on one side we have the "Life Ball" which is a really great invention and important to raise the tolerance for gays, but then again we still are talking behind our hands about "the lesbians making out over there" *headdesk* I really hope time changes minds and someday we all have the same rights..

Thanks for signing!

*hugs back* Thank you. It´s so sad that he died..but at least he had a great year at my cousin´s place. ♥
strikskestrikske on April 19th, 2010 07:05 pm (UTC)
Yes I hope that time will change minds. I just think it's going to take a lot of it.(time that is)

That's all you can do is to give them the best life that you can for however long you can.

*Hug*

I've read that somewhere else already, it's really sickening. :/

Aww, poor wittle bunny *hugs*
Andrea: Cat-huglupina78 on April 19th, 2010 07:11 pm (UTC)
It absolutely is sickening..I hope that this will be different someday..

Thank you..he´ll be missed very much..but just as my little cousin said: That´s life. Smart kid..*sigh*

*hugs back*

OH good - so it is spreading all around the online world...I wished everyone on this planet could read & sign that.

It´s so fucking wrong - sometimes people are only numbers or statistics - not human beings anymore..it´s so sad.

Thank you my dear! *HUGS BACK* ♥

And hey, you finally got your icon! ;)
thachatalulababy on April 20th, 2010 03:23 am (UTC)
Why are they being separated? Human has the right to choose who they with.

Sorry about the bunny, Andy. *hugs*
Andrea: Dean - if looks could killlupina78 on April 20th, 2010 01:21 pm (UTC)
That´s a very good question...I have no clue. It´s just not right.

Thanks sweetie! *hugs* ♥
