Good for you!!! That’s an amazing response to such a hateful comment – I know it’s easy for an outsider to say this, but please try not to let people that ignorant affect you. You have 150 people who attended your wedding who love you and million other people who support you! People who have nothing but negative things to say to that aren’t worth wasting another second of your life thinking about. Congratulations, by the way! 😀

I agree, she’s the yucky one. I’ve reported her too, there’s no reason to rain on someone’s day like that. Not at all.

@crookedframe: Just another vote for the opinion that that person is vile and backward. I responded on the FB discussion; maybe she will see via discourse that times are changing.

Trolls will always find mean hateful things to say no matter what. They are complaining because you’re a same sex couple, they will complain about the next couple because they are overweight, or too young, or too old, or too far apart in age, or have a fake tan, or they don’t like their clothes. What I’m saying is it says much more about them than about you. Hateful people with no life will try to spread their misery where ever they can. I’m sorry this happened to you. I hope it doesn’t put a damper on your beautiful day.

Just wanted to update to say that the venue responded to my email and promptly took down the offending comments. I appreciate all your comments and messages of support.

@crookedframe: I’m glad they did, because facebook responded saying they wouldn’t take them down, which I find absolutely ridiculous.

Wow, what a ridiciulous comment. But major props to you for calling her out and calmly, maturely, and politely expressing how her comments made you feel! People on Facebook treat it like it’s anonymous and that nothing gets back to the people they comment about, and it’s good that they get the reality check.

@crookedframe: I think the fact that so many people are up in arms about her comments really says something about the direction society is going, and I couldn’t be happier about that fact.
I am sorry you had to deal with her being a bitch. Sending all my well wishes and happiness to the two of you!

@crookedframe: Good for you for such a great response! I’m an extremely passionate ally and it makes me sick when people just throw hate without any perspective as to who it hits. I think writing a personal message puts a face to the name. Maybe she’ll think, “Wait..this is a real person?” I think if homophobes actually knew anyone who was gay and realized that, you know, we’re all just people here, they’d slow down the hate train. Congrats on a beautiful wedding and on finding your love!

As unfortunate as it is there will always be people that have something negative to say about gay marriage. I know many people from my grandparents’ generation still think it’s wrong for a black person to marry a white person, and they pass those kinds of ideas down to their children and even grandchildren. Luckily, that is becoming more widely accepted than it was in the past, so you can only hope the same will start happening from generation to generation with gay marriage as well. Unfortunately, it’s going to take more than just gay marriage being legalized 🙁

@luluvohn: yeah, Facebook sent me that response too. So lame.
Thank you all for all your support. It’s so lovely to get so many lovely comments from people who don’t even know me, but are still willing to help <3

I just looked at your photos. They are beautiful. Some people are horrible and need to wake up to themselves. I know it’s easier said than done but don’t let some idiot upset you. It looks like that comment has been deleted thankfully.
Congrats on your wedding too! I am hoping the new law in the ACT for same sex marriage withstands the court challenge (it’s this Saturday that it gets decided isn’t it?) and that the whole country can adopt it. I feel quite ashamed that I am allowed to get married based on my sexuality yet I have friends and family who aren’t. Hopefully Australia can start treating all of it’s citizens equally in the very near future! Congrats again 🙂
Edit: Aargh I just saw on my facebook that the high court overturned the ACT marriage laws today. Without wanting to swear on here, that makes me so F*** angry! This government is F**KED. When can we wake up and start treating everyone equally.
