That Feeling The Day Before Voting " Marriage Equality " Ireland

My last video on this referendum for " Marriage Equality "

 I just need to say my peace as I am worn out and drained from it all just like many others.. This has got to be a moment in time I will never forget... I could talk for weeks about this but it gets tiring trying to explain your life and how you feel to people who just wont listen..

. Im sure you all know what I mean, each to their own as they say... I have a strange feeling around me today, its a countdown to my future and many many many others.. All this for a simple " X " on a piece of paper by the majority to by happy and Marry the one I love..

 Ill be voting tomorrow with my partner and hope anyone who is undecided as what to vote, please watch this, there is so much more at stake for our younger generation.. 

Give them hope, Give us hope that Ireland will set the bar for the world and shout out that its ok to be gay and who you are and marry the one you love.. 

Irish Gay Families Matter !!!! Marriage Equality Ireland

I never thought I would have to broadcast my " Family " life but I need to let children know who have same sex parents they are just that " A Family "

When I see posters that read " We Already Have Civil Partnership "Don't redefine Marriage ???
 Who are " We " ??
Are they Gay or Straight ????

 Anyways, I need to put one thing straight, " Pardon the pun "  no matter what your view, opinion or thoughts, any person who is put into a category simply because of who they are its
 " Discrimination "

I need to reach out to children who are publicly degraded and spoke of in a way they will feel " Unnatural " or " Less  Equal "  in debates, on the radio, on posters, on national TV, on social media
You are perfectly fine, your " Family Unit " is perfectly fine, Your same sex parents are perfectly fine..

Its not you who is unnatural, its the people who think you are... Any sane person, or any intelligent person knows that we are all the same and we all deserve equal rights...

A lot of you are misguiding this referendum with your own personal views and beliefs and using children as your ammunition and are determined to EXCLUDE loving Families and children who are already living and breathing in this country...

My video of my story is below 

I was brought up by same sex parents, who loved me everyday, so when people speak the way they are speaking about children, its me you are talking about, when I was a child I always thought there was something wrong with my family the way I was bullied, slagged off and jeered everyday, in school, going to the shops, it didn't matter where I was, anyone that knew I had same sex parents, I was bullied because of it and whats even more crazy, its still the same to this day, when I turn on the radio, Tv, newspapers, posters.. Its never going to stop as it was always seen as unnatural, I am a grown man now and realise I will never let it happen to any child the way it happened to me.. I can use my voice and will tell you like it is... YOU do not control peoples lives or people families.. You can have your view but its the same view as I seen when  I was a child... Especially religion class don't get me started on that...

I was brought up to respect people, have manners and stand up for what I believe is right... And I know full " Equality " is right regardless of any personal view or opinion.......

Protect The Children ??????  I am one of those children and you never protected my " Family " nor did my country and you still continue to NOT protect the children, instead, you are making children feel less equal and making them question their family unit..

Civil Partnership has far less rights and protections than Civil Marriage... actually there are around 160 differences to be honest..

I grew up not knowing anything about referendums, rights and " Ideal Family Units " I always thought my family are amazing, until I stepped outside my front door and really seen that society thought my " Family " were the freaks on the road.. Thats not the way life is and I cant sit by and watch grown adults do the same to people like me and happily degrade children and smoother it with views and opinions

Please Vote Yes on May 22nd as I personally have had a life of listening to the same arguments and same discrimination and it continues, please don't make it continue for our children and generations to come , make a stand and give everyone the equal rights we all deserve

Thank You

Protect The Children " Marriage Equality Ireland "

So I hear a lot about this " Marriage Equality " Referendum on May 22nd here in Ireland and I hear so much of " Protect The Children " 

So this is what I think, Stop degrading these children and speaking about them as if they are NOT human or have feelings..

 It turns my stomach to hear such vile words being spoken and the way they the " Vote NO " Campaign speak about these children as if they don't exist... Mothers and Fathers " every child deserves one,, Jesus Christ, if any child was to listen to what you blab on about they will for sure think there is something wrong with them.... Equality will over rule and hatred and even these children will become adults one day and look back at this circus they " No Vote " Campaign are putting on....

Vote Yes to Equality for Marriage Equality in Ireland 2015 as this has spilled over into a more serious debate and that debate is 

Children, ALL children deserve is love and a loving family period ..

Vote Yes For an Equal Ireland

Marriage Equality " Protect The Children "

I'm sure a lot of you out there have heard that saying when it comes to " Marriage Equality " we need to " Protect The Children " Marriage is between " One Man & One Woman " we need to " Protect The Children " here's a way you can " Protect The Children " 

Attention all Straight Mothers & Fathers.... 
Including grandparents, Either single, married or together and you are deciding to " Vote No " against this referendum on May 22nd, I can't change the way you view this as it is your opinion, view and decision on this vote, same way as you cannot change mine... But I will say this, Imagine it's the 21st of May and you are parents of young children and I am sure there is a lot of straight parents out their with young children, when it comes to bed time for your child and your child says to you, Mammy or Daddy will you read me a bed time story, of course you will always say yes son / daughter I will read you a bed time story, you take out your child's favourite bed time story book, you start to read it to your child, as you read your precious child starts to nod off to sleep, you can tell as he / her closes their eyes and let's go of your hand, so it's time for you to gently tip top out of the star lit room, as you open the door, your precious child says " Good Night Mammy or Daddy " you will say with a loving heart, " Good Night and sleep tight my beautiful Boy / Girl " you close the door and off to bed. You awake on the 22nd of May, head off to get your opinion and view heard on this referendum and " Vote No " happy that you made your mind up and go back home, get the dinner ready and feed the family, late that night same again you put your precious child to sleep with a good night story...

 You might say to yourself where am I going with this status but hear me out. 

Let's just say for example that this referendum goes ahead and gets a " No Vote " by majority because everyone wants to " Protect The Children " What you have done by voting No is that you do not know if your precious child will grow up to be of age one day and become aware of their sexuality and comes out " Gay " in the future, you have just taken their voice away and their future to be happy with who they fall in love with and to let them make their own choice of who they want to Marry when they fall in love, be it boy or girl, .... So the next time you read your precious child a bedtime story, just think to yourself, would you want the best for your child, would you want them to be happy, would you live with that guilt of making their life hell simply because you voted no... Fast forward a few years from now with a " No Vote " their will be NO good night Mammy or Daddy, it will be a Goodbye Mammy or Daddy if your own child finds out you as loving parents and protectors of your child " Voted No " " simply because you did not " Protect The Children " so " Protect Your Children " and give them an Equal Future in this country we all call " Home because if I had children I'd be " Protecting My Children " so " Protect Your Children " So we can all " Protect Our Children
