If you are on Facebook, you have seen a lot of red lately. It started with an image made by the activists at The Human Rights Campaign as a way to show support for the right to marry whether you are straight or gay in a visual and public way. Well, the image morphed into a meme and people have been very creative with showing their support.
I thought I would share some of my favorites..
- Created by The Oatmeal… It combines support for marriage equality and a wonderfully tasty food!

- Grumpy Cat! Who does not love Grumpy Cat?
- If only it sparkled like other vampires you may have heard of…
- Yoda. Smart you are.
- Why not combine all the memes into the ultimate red equal sign?
Found on The Human Rights Campaign’s FB page.
So are you sporting a red profile picture to show support? Personally, I am having a hard time deciding which one to use.
Yeah, sometimes I feel this way. Maybe that is why I keep my mouth shut and rant through blog posts.
There are lots of people excited about my latest project and many of them are dying to interview me. Unfortunately I have not had much time to do many interviews, but I did make time to sit down with my husband (let’s call him The Voice of Reason) when he asked to interview me.
The Voice of Reason: What the hell do you think you are doing?
Poppy: Um, it looks like I am going to start a blog focused on politics.
Voice: Seriously! What makes you think that you have anything to say that people want to read.
Poppy: I am thinking I should be offended by that question, but I will answer it anyway. First of all, I have a degree and it happens to be in Political Science. Secondly, I am awesome and they will be able to tell that I am awesome once they read a post or two. Finally, if I do this blog you will not have to listen to me drone on and on about the problem with politics anymore.
Voice: Well, I do like that last reason. I still think you are crazy and I don’t want you to be disappointed if no one reads it.
Poppy: Well, if you mean that you think I am brilliant and this blog will be a new internet sensation… then I accept your compliments. Now, go away I have to post something awesome now.
I am so blessed to have such a supportive husband, aren’t I?
