One thing that bothers me so much today is this idea that celebrities are experts and inspirational geniuses (particularly with all things political), and that people actually listen to them. The list just continues to grow of the many actors I don't much care to see on screen anymore. So most recently, during his grand acceptance speech at the Oscars, Sean Penn had this to say:
“I think it is a good time for those who voted for the ban against gay marriage to sit and reflect and anticipate their great shame and the shame in their grandchildren’s eyes if they continue that way of support. We’ve got to have equal rights.”
Thank you Mr. Penn, but you can go ahead and keep thinking. I anticipate the day when my grandchildren will hear stories about what we had to go through to protect our families and fight for what we believe in.
