David Wilson and Julie Goodridge, two of the plaintiffs whose case led to the legalization of marriage equality in Massachusetts, described meeting with Romney to discuss their experiences. According to Wilson, “it was like talking to a robot. No expression, no feeling.” At one point, Romney remarked, “I didn’t know you had families.” Goodridge recalls her final exchange with the governor, which proved to her that he had “no capacity for empathy”:
GOODRIDGE: Governor Romney, tell me — what would you suggest I say to my 8 year-old daughter about why her mommy and her ma can’t get married because you, the governor of her state, are going to block our marriage?
ROMNEY: I don’t really care what you tell your adopted daughter. Why don’t you just tell her the same thing you’ve been telling her the last eight years.

i seriously don’t reblog politics or anything much if at all but Romney is kind of really fucked up and i probably don’t want to ineteract with you if you’re voting in his favor. every time i see an interview with this fucker i fume a little bit at the fact that he shows no compassion for anybody or anything. if you can vote, please do so, and not for shit scumbag. you aren’t furthering anybody’s rights by putting this guy in office. this guy being in any position of power is dangerous.
