Strangers Marry After Same-sex Couple Denied License

In an act of civil-sorta-disobediance, local LGBT activist Kitty Lambert received a marriage license to a stranger named Ed at Buffalo’s City Hall today, after being denied a license to marry her same-sex partner.

A small group gathered in the lobby before proceeding to the 13th floor. Entering the City Clerk’s office, Kitty and long-time partner Cheryl attempted to apply for a marriage license. Armed with the appropriate documents City employees informed them due to New York State law, they would be unable to grant them a license. As the clerk’s office employees gathered to watch, a tearful Lambert explained the benefits only available to straight couples with a marriage license.

With news cameras rolling, Kitty then turned to the crowd and asked for any male who would be willing to get married to her. A gay man named Ed stepped forward and volunteered. They briefly exchanged information and presented the appropriate documents along with $40. City staff verified the information, and proceeded to give them a marriage license.

Kitty’s point in approaching the City Clerk for a marriage license is that there is no religious basis for marriage, and it serves only as a legally binding contract in our society. Instead of being offered the ability to receive a license with her long-term partner, she was able to secure a license with a virtual stranger, strictly based on their gender.

once more regarding the vomit

The video was my idea. Jamie didn't exploit me or coerce me or anything like that.

Although this was a while ago, I grew up around a lot of people who were bulimic. Well not just bulimic, but had a lot of various issues with self hatred that were expressed in a million various ways, including cutting and drug use. Although I still encounter all various sorts of self-loathing, perhaps because bulimia was the most visible, prevalent, and even normalized form of self-destruction at a very impressionable age, I will always think of it as a major form of self-hatred. There is also something very physically torturous and viscerally disturbing (aka gross!) about the act of vomiting that strikes my fancy, I guess.

I remember one night that one of my friends was completely fucked up on a few different drugs. Then she went through the pantry and fridge eating all kinds of shit. She'd then throw it up, eat more, throw up, eat more throw up. After a couple of hours of this, I told her that she was fucking stupid and dumb and left. I never saw her again, but found out she died a couple years later from overdose. I felt stupid and dumb for calling her pain stupid and dumb.

So yes, me vomiting my brains out on video was gross as hell and it made me feel like shit afterward. Those tears and the "what the fuck is going on" look is sincere. But just because I look like shit does not mean that I didn't have a choice in doing that.

I don't know why so many people are assuming that I didn't have any agency in making of this video. I guess because I'm a young Asian female? Or perhaps some people don't understand that one can voluntarily choose to hurt themselves physically. Maybe some think it's just so stupid and dumb that one had to have been forced to do it?

I apologize for the rambling, but I guess I'm just trying to say, please don't attack Jamie for anything. It was my idea and I chose with full agency, undrugged, uncoerced, to do it. Also, I guess I am trying to explain a little bit why such a gross and stupid act is my way of showing self-hatred -- but then again, when is an act of self-hatred ever not gross and stupid?

please direct personal attacks, reproaches, unfounded racists/sexist comments, exclamations of outrage to

the votes are in and complex news

90% of people want and i quote
"shirts for everyone!!!!"
so more life draining effort on our part but we are
fucking weird ass perverts so it is ok
there are 46 total that were available and
again thank you so much but
in the three minutes that it was up
we got 54 pay pal orders in-
so a few people who paid will be getting their money back
and an apology from us.
if you end up being someone whose order is not able to be fulfilled,
please look for a small thank you gift in the mail.
again thank you so much
this is something that joe, angela and i worked on together to make and it was
incredibly satisfying and doleful.



PROBLEM with super deluxe

sorry i am not so great at the interbot and
(wow !!!! thank you)
the super deluxe sold much faster than i had could keep up with counting before i was able to take it down
i will leave this up to a vote
more than 21 people (actually almost all the orders)
were for the super deluxe with the blood t shirt


i can make more of the shirt, that means it will be less rarified by about 20 copies. (downside)
but everyone who wants one can get one. (upside)
i can figure out a way to make it work that only the first 21 people get a shirt.

please write
and let me know what you would like.
and thank you again so much!!!!!!!!
