Did you stay up to watch Obama's acceptance speech? It was amazing. If you weren't moved by it, you have a heart of stone and I want no part of you.
Not to be a buzzkill, but the election also meant the passage of some discriminatory propositions:
- CALIFORNIA Prop 8: Anti-gay constitutional revision eliminates the right of same–sex couples to marry (This one is technically too close to call, but at this point it looks unlikely to be defeated.)
- FLORIDA Amendment 2: Anti-gay constitutional amendment writes marriage discrimination into the state constitution
- ARIZONA Prop 102: Anti-gay constitutional amendment writes marriage discrimination into the state constitution
- ARKANSAS Act 1: Anti-gay measure bars unmarried couples from fostering or adopting children (Not just bad for teh gheys; this is bad for straight couples, too. But, let's face it, the people most hurt are children. Way to go, Arkansas.)
Miles to go before we sleep....
