California, WTF?

My fellow Californians, we're voting to let animals stand up and walk around before we kill and eat them, but not to let two consenting adults marry? Sigh. My Bay Area voted no, but LA county is voting in favor of the ban. Ironically the large African American turn-out is helping pass Prop 8 according to exit polls. The only blight on a wonderful night; I really thought Prop 8 would be defeated. :(

Florida just enshrined the definition of marriage in the state constitution as one man + one woman. It wouldn't be quite so appalling except that the amendment specifies that nothing else can even be treated as comparable to marriage--hence civil unions can't be recognized either, unless they're heterosexual.

I had hoped California would do better than Florida managed.

Gosh, that's really too bad. Let's hope it's not the last word.
