Prop 8: WTF?

I’m glad and proud about America voting in our first black president. It’s about fucking time. I am happy about it, etc etc. But I am NOT happy with California who voted yes on Prop 8. In fact, I don’t know why this was even on the ballot in the first place! How the hell did it get on there? You can’t have the majority of morons voting against a minority! If the people were allowed to vote on African Americans’ rights, that would not have been fair since we are talking about making way for the rights of the minority of people regardless of the majority disagreeing. I am just very upset and angry about the outcome of this proposition, I can’t even put it into proper words. .

..And the whole angle on what it’s going to do to “the children” and “families” was such utter bullshit. Gay people being married doesn’t do anything to your families or your precious children. You can still go on trying to tell your kids it’s a terrible sin if that’s what you chose to do. You can’t deny that there are gay people in this world. There always was and always will be whether you religious nuts like it or not! It’s not other people’s choice to make! Especially about a personal relationship that is not your own and that makes you uncomfortable. So stay out of it! Yet, you want to stick your big fat schnoz into other people’s families. Gay families have absolutely no bearing or threat to your twisted teachings in your own family. For the people that voted yes on 8, it is a religious issue and this should have NOTHING to do with LAW or Civil Rights of our citizens. Fuck fuck fuck you, you self-righteous hillbillies!

How this proposition can reverse a law that was given as a right to a minority group, is still beyond me. How can a religious view become a law????? Can you say UNCONSTITUTIONAL?!

    I’m with you Carol! No one I know voted for 8, and the “No on 8” campaign was very visible and well-staffed here in Venice. My girlfriend volunteered for the effort.

    After this, perhaps Our Mormon Friends have learned a lesson: lying on well-paid TV ads pays off. What a shame!

    Pam Spaulding (via Susie Bright) wrote a nice article explaining the ramifications, specifically how to reach out to overcome the education gap, so this type of thing is overturned down the line.

    Gf and I saw your show in Culver City — your work continues to amaze and excite me! Take care!

    Prop 8 was a sucker trap for both sides – the old diversionary switch from the true issue of equal rights to the definition of “marriage”. Nice groundwork for a bitchen supreme court case – hope Obama gets to nominate some justices during his stay in the whitey House.

    Konfronting Kops i- much more effective than waving no on 8 placards 100 yards from polling places… at last – some progression.

    I mean who really wants to be married anyway? Really???

    Like who wants to live in the white house – Georgian Neoclassical??? COME ON!

    Especially after the Bush occupancy – its gonna take alot longer than four years to fumigate the place!
