VIDEO OF THE DAY: Guy stands up to the government for his family

When my MTV TJ competition first started, and you all were getting to know me, someone texted in and asked “Do you support gay rights?”
My answer: Abso-freakin’-lutely
Their reply: Guess I won’t be listening to your show ever again.

As much as it bothered me at first because I didn’t want to lose any listeners when I just moved here, it wasn’t going to change my mind. I accept everyone. I love everyone. No matter what. If someone doesn’t accept me because of that, there’s nothing I can or will do about it.

Anyway, I had to say that as an intro of sorts into this video.

This 19 year old guy, Zach Wahls, went to the Iowa House of Representatives and spoke on behalf of his mothers, and fight for gay marriage equality. It’s an absolutely amazing speech, and I really hope everyone watches it.

I’m fully aware that this will probably stir up a lot of hate mail, but that’s the chance and sacrifice I’m willing to take. Zach took the chance, why shouldn’t others in order to show support?
