From the OutSitting on a bench outside this coffee houseFrom the Out by MacElf
Silent in observing the inside from the out
Watching faceless strangers running ‘cross the street
Dreaming of an angel I’ll never get to meet
A subtle shift of wind brings the smell of coming rain
Promising a cleansing, a drowning of all pain.
Just get OUT“Just get OUT!”Just get OUT by MacElf
The words echoed in Korra’s head, made that much sharper by the panic and pain in Asami’s voice. All the pull and power of the Avatar meant nothing in that moment as the nurses finally manhandled Korra from the room.
She doesn’t want me here. The thought bubbled up from the deepest recesses of her mind, colliding with the memory of Asami’s face gone pale from distress, head thrown back and eyes clenched tight against sweat and rebellious locks of hair.
The door to the hospital room had been slammed shut, but Korra could still hear the agonized screams from her spot beside the door, back against the adjoining wall and knees pulled to her chest with shaking arms.
She doesn’t want me here. The words took on a physical aspect so oppressive that Korra didn’t realize Asami had quieted until a new presence vocalized its discomfort, and Korra was on her feet and metalbending the door open before she was consciously a

I've never been one of those people that day-dreamed about being married to one person for the rest of my life, due in some parts to my polyamorous heart and in other parts to my fear of accidentally tying myself to a person who then decides that neither of us can have sex or fall in love with any one else "so long as we both shall" suffer in miserable silence.
So why does marriage equality matter to me in any way?
Because it's a matter of civil rights? Well, duh, although it saddens me to realize how many "equal peoples" turn a blind eye to that fact. But that's not why it really MEANS something to me, why it personally affects my own selfish little reality.
True marriage equality matters to me because I am FtM transgender with enough general legal knowledge to know that, at some point, marrying one of my companions may be the only way to protect and care for him/her. But my birth certificate will always declare me a 'legal' female, making any potential marriage to a female love a "same-sex marriage."
And yet, as a transitioned male, if I attempted to wed a male love, those who would denounce equal marriage rights would deny us the opportunity because I 'chose to be a guy'.
So, yeah, same-sex marriage rights directly affect me even though I have no active interest or intentions to tie any knots with any gender.
Also, there's that little softie inside me that just genuinely enjoys seeing other people be happy, and love is number one leading cause of happiness.
