Dear, please help me to hug myself hard, to be very hard. This service, we set out by love, did not smear disinformation, did not incite fear. We may have lost the referendum, but we didn't lose the honesty, the loss of respect, the loss of conscience. On the road to affirmative action, the number of people will be more and more, and our love will grow stronger.
Dear, good night, before you go to bed, I received your message, you told me that you have felt that you have no love, I do not know what to say for a moment, I think I can only hug you, put you in the quilt, while talking to you a small matter.
Today, before the polling house, I chatted with another good gay friend on my mobile phone, and we've known him for a long time, I've met his parents, I've been to their house, and I think I can say that I rarely see people as gentle and empathetic as his parents. They have taken a lot of care of me since before.
It's just that they don't know, and my friends like the same sex. This referendum, they voted against same-sex marriage, gay education.
My friend talked to his parents for a long time, and the result was not as good as he meant, but he looked very open, and he told me that my mother was just not used to it, not unacceptable. And I also believe that his mother just doesn't have enough time and space to understand that she should actually cast another kind of public vote. And such time and space, is about to be gently promoted by us.
So whenever I think of the sad referendum result, whenever I have any resentment, I remind myself to think about his mother's face and think about all the warmth and care she has given me.
Honey, even if I say that, I know you're still so disappointed. Me too.
Dear, I am reminding myself that the advancement of human rights and gender interests in history has often been based on hundreds of years. Before the 1990 's, Taiwan's civil law stipulated that a woman would need to remarry while she was married (civil Law 987, 994); The residence of the wife as residence, the residence of the child as the father (Civil Law 1002); The divorce of the parents, the custody of the children to the father (civil Law 1055); 1068); wife's surname, children from the father's surname (civil Law 1000, 1059); marital property, administered by the husband (Civil law 1018).
Can you imagine that? These are the civil laws of more than 20 years ago. At a very young age, we have even lived in Taiwanese society, where these ideas are the law.
Please believe in yourself and believe that with the society we are in, the future will also become better.
Honey, please let me give you a few more data: 2.61 million people, 3.09 million people, 3.71 million people, 3.07 million people, 3.19 million people.
These figures are the number of people who are in the sun today, queuing for 1-2 hours, and casting a very equal number of votes. Do not forget the thoughts and sincerity of these people, we should take heart, cherish.
You know, Taiwan's history of Democratic enlightenment and human rights maintenance is short and short. Even so short, so many people have come forward to support, encourage, defend, and insist on casting this vote. These figures, we would like to bear in mind.
Because, this is just the beginning, these numbers will be getting bigger. On the road to affirmative action, the number of people will be more and more, and our love will grow stronger. We set out by love, never tarnished, never disinformation, never incited fear. We may have lost the referendum, but we didn't lose the honesty, the loss of respect, the loss of conscience. It is a wonderful battle for us to be in this service.
Please help me to hug myself hard, to be very hard.
When you look back, perhaps you will find that those who support you and love You also love you and even love you more. We have never lost love.
Reality may be lost, but our hearts are still hot, and we still embrace and love each other, something that no one, no referendum result, can take away.
So we didn't lose, don't give up.
Even if you shed tears, you should sleep well, we must live better, healthier and happier. When there is strength, give strength to those around you, love that can make a person's soul feel safe and free. Tonight is just the beginning, and in the future, we will continue to work together like this, going down.
Honey, we saw it today. It's a long way. But we are a group of people, to laugh and fight, while weeping and hugging, remember that all on the road, the need for enthusiasm and tenderness to go long. Because you know, this road is worth guarding, worth creating, worth retaining, worthy of treasure, worthy of hugging and kissing, than disappointing, always more, more.
