No not that! Anything but that!

One of my assignments for my social media course is I had to write a blog on something that has been in the news. To be honest I avoid the new and newscasts like the plague. It's always so damn depressing and I end up completely depressed and upset.

There is one thing that has been continually popping up in my news feed on facebook:
I don't even want to say the woman's name because I think she's gotten way too much attention already. It's not hard to see what side of the situation I stand on. I'm a staunch supporter of gay rights and feel that they have the right to get married just like anyone else.

There's something that has popped up in retaliation and they have been giving me a giggle all week. Here are a couple of my favourites and they obviously don't need any explanation.  

And my personal favourite...

I haven't said anything on this topic or story and I really didn't plan on it, until I read something that finally did me in on this issue. There are reports of her being hailed a "hero" 
You're kidding me right? A hero? 

I've never been so angry in my life. Even as I type this I can feel my stomach churning with disgust. 
She is no hero,

The men and women who put their lives on the line every day to allow us the freedom to voice our opinions. They are true heroes. Police who hunt down bad guys. Firefighters who run into burning buildings to save civilian lives. They are heroes. Normal everyday people who put their lives on the line to save a complete strangers, they are heroes
Using your position to force your beliefs on people who don't agree. NOT a hero.

And that's all I've got to say on that - Okay one more.... 

If you've seen any more memes that made you laugh, please pop them into the comments. I'd love to see them. :)
