Zach Wahls Tells Ellen: Lawmakers ‘Are Supposed To Protect Us’

Zach Wahls, son of two gay moms in Iowa, already gives me the tingles. Appearing on Ellen, with his mom Terry in the audience, Zack says of the men and women he addressed on Feb. 2, “The scary part about that for me is that they’re lawmakers, they’re supposed to protect us, not take our rights away.” Wahls says he’s heard from plenty of folks after his speech hit the web, including a fella “raised in the deep South” who’s shipping off to Afghanistan anxious about the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, and whose mind has changed. Goosebumps!

      I think what this proves is that kids – those that are gay or are being raised by gay parents or who are just supportive of the gay community – are probably the most powerful people in our country. You literally have to be a heartless monster to look one of these kids in the eye and tell them that they are feaks, inferior, that those they love are dangerous and sick. These kids need to call out Sarah Palin. They need to call McCain and Perkins out on the harm and pain they are causing. If more of these kids did, I think we’d be much farther along in getting equality.

      I know I sound like “Use the children!” … but like I said, their pretty much an A-bomb to anti-gay bigots.

      @Right Wingers Are Socioptahs (John From England): Sorry, but whenever a heterosexual gets that worked up over gay rights and how important it is to him/her, they always come across as shallow and insincere. It’s just awfully pretentious.

      He is a young man with little media/speaking experience yet he is more eloquent than many twice his age with a lifetime of experience. Listen to his message, please, and if you don’t believe him, ask yourself why he would champion this cause unless he truly believes it. More Zach, fewer complainers!

      Calls for international

      It has been many years and US military is still in Afghanistan and Iraq. To help soldiers call back to the US from military bases, we have special phone cards at http://www.zscomm.com Soldiers and military can use the phone cards like Diamond, Edge and more to call back to US from Iraq and Afghanistan for cheaper rates.
