  •  And marriage was supposed to be mainstream.... (0+ / 0-)

    What's to take personally about people outlawing your family and saying, smugly, that they're doing it because of "values" and "religion?"

    Marriage was always a token issue anyway, IMO.

    Mainstream gay and lesbian activists prioritized marriage over an inclusive ENDA. In the process, they threw their less than mainstream companions into the river.

    It's kind of ironic, isn't it, that marriage was defeated in no small part because of a lack of support among members of a broader, more mainstream civil rights movement?

    Personally, I think that having your marriage outlawed really isn't nearly as humiliating as being made jobless and desperate by a whole community of self-righteous people who think you're wrong to exist. And Prop. 8 just goes to show, not only that America isn't quite ready yet for same-sex marriage, but that America isn't anywhere close to recognizing that a whole swath of people are human.

    But we'll try to not take that personally....
