It's all about releasing your inner sociopath
Prop 8
The radio this morning was saying that it's too close to call; there are quite a few absentee ballots still to count.

Unfortunately, it still looks to me like we will be enshrining exclusionary language in California's state constitution.

I'm happy about Obama's win last night. I'm sad that my state doesn't understand that it's never good to make someone a "them" and that it's okay to ban this, they're not us.

ETA: NPR was stating that there's still 2 million absentee ballots to count, and Prop 8 only has a 400,000 vote lead. We'll see. I'm not optimistic.

It was a rough night across the country where gay legislation was concerned.

I am also not optimistic, but hope a miracle happens and prop 8 passes. It's one of the ugliest pieces of legislation and I'm really sad it wasn't soundly rejected.

I think you mean fails.

I'm concerned about Florida's and Arizona's props, but less so than about California's. My reasoning is that California already has/had gay marriage; to me, it was fighting for an already established right. Florida & Arizona hadn't passed it yet, so while it's exclusionary it's not as horrible as California's.

Oh fuck. Yes. Fails. Gah.

And agreed--Prop 8 is the worst, hands down.
