Since when did it matter

Since when did it matter who you love?

when did loving someone of the same sex become a crime?

since when did religion stop being included in the first amendment?

when did believing in something different cause mass panic?

since when did a woman's choice to abort and embryo become a man's choice?

when did that man ever carry a fetus?

since when did it matter if you smoke a joint?

when did a plant become more important than real issues?

it never mattered before; who you fuck, or what you believe in, or expelling an embryo, or burning a plant,

so why the fuck does it matter now? 

why is all this making more headlines than wars, or government scandals, or sports, or even the damn weather?

when did we become so god damned ignorant?
