Purpose

I am a lesbian going into Mechanical Engineering. This blog is meant to do two things: a.) relieve the stress on myself from being closeted, and b.) to let people know that there are members of the LGBT community in engineering fields.

Facebook & The Supreme Court Trial

       Sorry for the long gap in between posts, it's been a busy month.  Anyhow, I am sure most of you have heard about the U.S. Supreme Court taking up the cases that involve DOMA and the repeal of Proposition 8.  I am assuming that those of you with Facebook have seen all the red equal signs of people you support marriage equality.  I haven't seen too many anti-gay marriage posts, but I have seen a number of people posting about how they don't think that everyone changing their facebook profile to a red equal sign will make a difference.  They also say how those who have changed their profile picture  should go out and actively do something, rather than stating this on the internet.
      Now for a closeted lesbian's opinion.  It helps so much knowing that so many people who I know in real life actually approve of gay marriage.  Even if I was out I would be happy that there was so much support.  I hope that the Supreme Court will make the correct decision and allow gay marriage in the U.S. since we are a nation all about equality.
