Yes, I am ELATED about Obama!
However, Californians have chosen to take aways rights from us, but animals get more protection.............
UPDATE from the comments: I don't mean to take a "win from the animals" at all, and I apologize if my title was taken that way. The absurdity that the seriousness of both of these two Propositions was not upheld by enough in California is really disturbing.
(For those not in California: Proposition 2 gives more protection to feed animals and is passing, but Proposition 8 which removes the rights for gay people to marry is passing too...)
I am TIRED of this double standard. It's very simple, do we really believe in "liberty and justice for ALL"? We still have a very long way to go to equality.
My condolences to our fellow LGBT community in Arizona on Proposition 102 as well.
We will refuse to give up our marriage license, and fight it in court as far as we have to.
Sorry for the bummer diary on a very positive night. It's tough to be overly happy when we've just had rights taken away. Bittersweet is a good word, and we'll keep on fighting. I'm just really tired of fighting.
