Bigotry Triumphs In California--For Now

Well, barring a complete count of the votes on Prop Hate (I understand the count is as of yet incomplete), ignorance and bigotry have triumphed in California. Those who feared that our marriages would somehow diminish theirs, along with those who just flat-out hate lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered Americans voted down a right that heterosexuals take for granted.

But, LGBT people are not taking this lying down. We are fighting back--protesting, boycotts, and action through the courts. The homophobes are now whining that they are being picked on. Oh, I guess I misunderstood. THEY are allowed to run roughshod over us, and the only thing WE are supposed to do is shut up, bow our heads and let them do it.

This is not an easy battle, but we will win it. Sooner or later, we WILL have marriage equality.
Actually this defeat may have been a good thing. It has awakened gay people to the fact that the only rights we will get are the ones we fight for.

I'm so sorry you have to fight for a right that SHOULD be yours. I hope it gets overturned, I really do. It's just so damn backwards.
