Second Class

There was a ballot measure this election in California to elminate marriage for certain people. Yes, the gays. It is hard for me to grasp that in this day and age when we can elect an African American president, people are still trying to, my friends, my family second class citizens. Its not fair, and it hurts a lot right now.

This saturday there are nation wide protests to repeal this ballot measure and give back rights to thousands and thousands of people who had them two weeks ago. If this upsets you as much as it does me, call your representatives, talk about it, act out - peacefully. Let California know that not just the gays are pissed off right now.

Here are some links if you're not quite sure what I am talking about.

Although, to end this post on a high note, Connecticut started gay marriages on Wednesday this week.
