Prop 8 Protest - San Diego - November 15, 2008

I'm standing near the front of the line holding a big white sign that you probably can't read. It says "GET YOUR CHURCH OUT OF MY MARRIAGE."


Saturday was a day of national protest against the passage of Proposition 8 in California. The bastards that organize the passing of these propositions are sure getting their come-uppance after doing this to California. Everyone understands that's how life is in Alabama, but when they start fucking with California (or New York) it's time for the masses to get pissed. And they are pissed.

Interestingly, San Diego had the largest turnout of any city in the country. I will take credit for this as I've been spouting venom to anyone who will sympathize for weeks now. I'm new to the city so I don't have a lot of friends yet, and now people think I'm a raving lunatic and will probably try to avoid me. I guess that's ok, because they're right.

But let's keep up the fight for equal rights.

I'm with you 100% - it's the next civil rights frontier. This bigotry must end.

You look quite dashing in your shorts while holding your sign.

Spouting venom is the best way to meet and get to know other raving lunatics in your new town. Even if raving lunatics on the wrong side are the ones who brought you together.

That's great that you had such a huge turn out. It seems like you moved to a nice place.

I wish I could have been there.

You're taking SD with pride. I love what you're doing. Democracy is a fight; I'm so happy you're fighting what you see as "the good fight".

My feeling to the homophobes? If they don't like same-sex marriage, they don't have to get one.

I hope that kids in the future will study this as yet another terrible period of intolerance. And with the recent change in government, we can at least breathe easy that there will in fact be schools in the future.

This won't stand. It just won't Americans - people - are better than Prop 8. Seriously. This can't last.

Go on with your bad self. Keep fighting the good fight.

You go, boy.

Would you believe that 3 Mormons showed up at my door last week? I was creeped out. I really wanted to either A) go off on them about how they're a church of hate or B) ask them to please bless my apartment and then tell them I'm actually a lesbian and laugh demonically, but, alas, like all of the good ideas in my head, I couldn't turn it into reality. I really wanted to be bitchy to them but they seriously looked like they were all 16 years old. I just told them that I wasn't a fan of organized religion and shut the door.

Ugh. Why can't I be more of a bitch?
