    I've seen the protests more as an emotional outlet and a galvanizing action for the No on 8 folks, to keep our spirits up and show our determination.
     
    We do need to change more minds, I just haven't seen that as the main goal of the post-election protests.

    If as a by-product they've swayed 8 percent, all the better!

      These protest have lead to the formation of multiple grassroots organizations that recruit more volunteers at each rally. Many of whom, at least in my area, had never been involved in the movement prior to this. So yeah for a potential shift in thinking, but double yeah for the building of a gay army!
