Still Not Equal.

And again we take a step in the wrong direction.

There might be silver linings regarding the marriages that already took place.

But still.

I am again disappointed and dismayed with my state.

You were my first stop when I saw the news. It's a blow, but it's not a death blow. I'm just really astonished that places like Iowa have joined the ranks while the standard-bearer of progressive politics -- Califuckingfornia -- which had already sanctioned marriage equality gets torpedoed by Prop H8.

What kind of alternate reality is this??

Kay said...

I know,

The thing is that CA is a huge state and there are a lot of really conservative counties.

We are still a red state after all.

The fight is already gearing up for 2010, as for myself I will be ready to fight again, always until it works.

Like I just told someone else. The good thing is this proposition can be overturned by another proposition. It's not over.

Kay - Hi. . . I am dismayed as well. California is supposed to be the place we all look to for its progressive way of life. it's the idealized america. . . It's supposed to be a mile ahead not a micron behind. I am still trying to figure out who gets hurt by having marriage open to all couples (no one). I am trying to figure out who gets helped (a lot of people) and what does it cost (nothing, it saves). I wrote the story 'Almost California' because CA is where everyone wants to be. I still think this is the case but wow they're making some things harder than they need to be.

As always, I love reading your blog.

To quote the great poet Pepe Le Pew "Le Sigh".

I have been having an interesting bit of debate on this issue with a few people on facebook too.
