Prop 8 Is Passed

Proposition 8, which forbids same-sex couples from marrying has been given the nod of approval today with 95% of precincts reporting the vote was 52% in favor of proposition 8 and 48% against.

This basically means that if you're in a same-sex relationship, you are different from everyone else and because you are different, you will be treated differently - equality in terms of your right to get married is not a liberty you recieve.

Who the FUCK voted on this thing?! Didn't anyone listen to Homer Simpsons' pearls of wisdom?!!

It's a weird day. Barack Obama achieved what is now achievable - a black US president. He made a leap today over racial barriers and pushed America just that little bit more forward towards equality. Then we get the news about Prop 8. Sad.
