Reddit Sums Up My Rage Against The Homophobes In My Home State

How sad when Reddit’s tiny alien sums up my mood.

In any case, the bullshit that is Prop. 8 was upheld. On the one hand, I think it’s a shitty ruling, since the CA Supreme Court had previously declared the ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional. On the other, negating something voted into law would have to entail election shenanigans, I would assume, and there were none here. Just bigotry. Of course, why this bigotry is not being called out and decried by the courts that called out and decried the bigotry directed at interracial couples is…well, bullshit. Total fucking bullshit. And no one can talk me down, to use the parlance of someone now designated a third-class system by the very justice system that is supposed to defend her rights as a citizen and a person.

In any case, I still seriously and fully support Melissa Etheridge’s idea of a tax boycott. Taxation without representation is unamerican (just ask Washington D.C.), and shouldn’t be tolerated. If a substantial percentage of the population has to wait till 2010 for their civil rights to maybe be granted by the state in which they reside, that state should have to wait till 2010 to see if maybe they pay their taxes.

    It looks more likely that a significant portion of the older folks need to die off before any headway is made in this country.
