Equality lyrics

With ConCon starting up tomorrow, a certain Catie Curtis song keeps playing over and over in my head:

~quote~

I love this town
You can see the stars at night
Even from downtown
'cause there are no city (am) lights
This town was my (biggest fan
'til I was who I am

(Chorus)
What's the matter
What's the matter
All I ask is
Why be afraid of this girl
What's the matter
What's the matter
All I ask is
Why be afraid of this world?

~quote~

Aside from saying what I want to say to all the people pushing these amendments (especially the one that would outlaw everything), this is also the song that clued me into the fact that Catie is family. I remember quite distinctly listening to the phrase "Straight or queer or mother of two" and going "Ohhhhh, so that's why ..." Guess the gaydar wasn't fully functioning yet.
