Dear Californians

Proposition 8 passed.

WTF Happened? Did someone slip a roofie in your Jamba Juice on the way to the polling place? I suppose maybe I'm living in a fantasy world, aka the San Francisco Bay Area, but I really did believe that votes would show that Californians do believe in equal rights for all.

I was wrong.

I'm so very sad for all my gay friends, family, and neighbors. Same sex couples deserve all the same rights and privileges as hetero couples and I can't express how sorry I am that we live with so many narrow minded assholes who believe it's their right to deny basic human rights to others.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the coming weeks and months. I have to believe that the fight isn't over. Banning same sex marriage is unfair and wrong. I do promise that I will stay committed to fighting for equal rights for all, no matter how long it takes.
