I was a beautiful girl, tall for my age, long limbs and long hair, and I attracted the attention of older men from the time I was 10. And it made me uncomfortable, and it made me scared.
I’m pretty sure she will be a beautiful teenager, aesthetically and otherwise.
Leaving high school to move away from home and attend college where my older boyfriend followed right behind me and made very sure I was never more than two steps away and nothing my mother did could ever stop that.
"No judge of the United States or federal district court has the right to invent the definition of marriage, which is not even contained in the United States Constitution," Moore told CNN's Chris Cuomo, according to the Washington Post.
"And that's the problem, we have people going in trying to mandate to the state of Alabama that the sanctity of marriage amendment in our constitution is wrong, and that's simply not right to do." Moore may be correct that all probate judges don't have to grant same-sex marriage licenses — for now — due to technical specifics about the jurisdiction of marriage in Alabama.

Maybe same-sex marriage isn't popular in Alabama today.
Maybe interracial marriage wasn't popular there in 1990.
I just wanted people to be nice to me, men to be nice to me, and when you are pretty and angry and lost you date older guys because they have cars and money and your dad moved out and your mom is busy crying so you go with them. And my mom did her best, but when you have this Tasmanian Devil of a daughter who screams fuck you and pierces her nose and sneaks out of her room and you are just trying to work to put mashed potatoes on the table (because potatoes are cheap–they are still cheap) there isn’t a lot you can do.
And you work long hours and cry a lot and your daughter has a bedroom with a window and a balcony and she is a quiet ghost who waits on the corner for a car to pick her up.
The law was supposed to be unenforceable by then, thanks to the Supreme Court decision in Loving v. But some of Alabama's probate judges still reportedly refused to grant marriage licenses to interracial couples in 1999, and nearly 41 percent of the state's voters voted to keep the ban.
In 2006, roughly 81 percent of the state's voters voted for a constitutional amendment to define marriage as a "unique relationship between a man and a woman." Moore cited the overwhelming consensus in his CNN interview as evidence his state doesn't want to legalize same-sex marriage.
(A 2014 Public Religion Research Institute survey found 59 percent of Alabamians still opposed marriage equality.) But the electorate's opinion isn't the debate here.
