Vote NO on Prop 8

You can watch the following video on why some bearded guy is going to vote Yes on Prop 8, or you can just go with my summary: He’s a douchebag.


It is inconsistent to have gay friends and vote Yes on Prop 8. That’s because you see their lives (not “lifestyles”) as inherently wrong. How you can “love” someone but not respect them (or give them equal rights) is beyond me.

Vote NO on Prop 8.

    As a people, we have come a long way. We invented technology and we have been able to improve our skills with each generation. We have come a long way in understanding that justice and freedom are the key to success; they are, in fact, what our country has been built upon. We should respect everybody’s freedom to choose their own destiny and future

    I might have missed the part where the bearded douchebag said that he thought his gay friend’s lives are inherently wrong. I’d vote No on prop 8 because i don’t care who or what you want to marry. God can sort out what is right and wrong, that’s not my job or any government.

  3. What about the children in California?
    Is Proposition 8 child abuse?
    Do children’s mental and emotional well-being matter?

    In California, imagine how SAFE the young children of gay or lesbian parents are feeling during this PROPOSITION 8 INSANITY.

    Would children feel SAFE if they knew other families were voting, for God’s sake, VOTING on whether their parents deserved the right to be married and treated fairly in society?

    How SAFE would a boy feel knowing some parents and teachers do not believe his own family is the same as their families?

    How SAFE would a girl feel knowing some children do not believe her own family deserves “the same” as their families?

    Now even young children ECHO this intolerance on the playground, thanks to their parents hateful words and ideas. How sick for the children of the YES ON PROP 8 crowd to feel more deserving than other children and their parents! Many children already know and love their gay uncles, lesbian grandmothers, and other FAMILY MEMBERS who are LGBTI, so we have created a hideous world with PROPOSITION 8 and other amendments like it in the U.S. Children are living in a world where they are witnessing adults spending MILLIONS and MILLIONS of dollars FOR or AGAINST their FAMILY.

    Children deserve to grow up in a world where they BELONG.

    Children deserve to grow up feeling SAFE.

    How sick of a society that we ALLOW family rights to be VOTED ON?

    Straight and gay children are being raised by straight and gay parents, but the government forgot that we are ALL interconnected in our families and in society. So now PROPOSITION 8 has brought children into this culture war, a war based on the assumption that some families deserve more legal rights and protections than other families in times of sickness, death, and divorce [for starters]. SICK.

  4. Absolutely. Children are being used as an excuse for people’s bigotry. “A vote for prop 8 is a vote for the children. You wouldn’t want to vote against children.”

    What really annoys me is they act like if we vote yes on prop 8 then gay people will disappear. Their children will never have to learn about an entire segment of society (those stupid commercials saying their children will have to learn about same-sex marriage in schools). If children learned that gay people were “normal” at a young age, there wouldn’t be prejudice. Too bad their parents’ bigotry makes this impossible.

    Isn’t this a cycle in California? A Judge declares same sex marriage legal. The Christian Right gets enough votes to put the proposition on the ballot to force marriage to be between a man and a women. Proposition passes. Judge then declares same sex marriage legal then the christian right ……

    RINSE. REPEAT.

    I think this year the vote might actually be close though. Not sure which side will win, probably the YES.
