I love words -- including the Korean word for love

The National Institute of the Korean Language has been pressured to change the definition of love "사랑" into something that can only occur between people of the opposite sex. This is simply ridiculous. Love cannot be limited to heterosexual romantic love only. The Korean word "sarang", like the English word "love", is an inclusive word. One can sarang your lover, yes, but you also sarang your parents and your friends and your children and your pets. I'm signing and supporting this petition not only because I support the rights of sexual minorities, but also because I sarang words.

If you feel like supporting this cause, you can sign the petition at Avaaz.
