Prop 8: A Set of Faces


For those of you who voted for Prop 8, this post over at The Swivet does what I was planning to do: put a human face on the object of your hate.

That’s just to give an idea of the kinds of people you’re actively trying to degrade and push to the bottom rungs of society, just like the generations previous did to black people and other non-white peoples. Remember that. No matter how hard you try to dislodge yourself from racist discourse, you are bed buddies with the same racist, hateful, prejudicial bigots that did everything they could to keep black people from being the same as white people in any way.

Remember that.

  1. Its funny how we took one step forward with Obama and then one step back with this Prop 8 bullshit.


    I feel for our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters.
    Its not right…


  2. I voted no on 8 and I feel sad for the couple affected by the passage of that bill. I’d really like to know why a population that has a 50+% divorce rate thinks that gay marriage would threaten the institution of marriage. Seems to me we’re doing a pretty good job of screwing it up on our own.

    Reminds me of when we lived in Oregon when I was younger. There was a huge population of Mormons in the area that also happened to be fond of key swapping (or swinging as it’s now known). I always find it amazing that those people would show up to church every Sunday. Obviously not all church going people are swingers. But if people going to deny gay marriage based on religious doctrince, then shouldn’t they attempt to live by that doctrine themselves. Just sayin’.
