I want to cry

From the LA Times:
Perhaps more powerfully, the Proposition 8 campaign also seized on the issue of education, arguing in a series of advertisements and mailers that children would be subjected to a pro-gay curriculum if the measure was not approved.

"Mom, guess what I learned in school today?" a little girl said in one spot. "I learned how a prince married a prince."

As the girl's mother made a horrified face, a voice-over said: "Think it can't happen? It's already happened. . . . Teaching about gay marriage will happen unless we pass Proposition 8."

Many voters said they had been swayed by that message.

Amy Mora, a 26-year-old teacher, came with her mother to a polling place in Lynwood on Tuesday morning. She said she believes gay people have the right to marry one another. But she said she voted in favor of Proposition 8 because she does not believe students should be taught that gay marriage is acceptable.


Why?? Why?? If a prop wins on a lie, is it valid??

This bitch believes gays have the right to marry, but doesn't want kids to know it?? Wants kids to be taught instead that it's OK to write discrimination into a constitution by a simple majority vote??? Wants kids to learn that it's OK to deny people rights because they're different??

It won?

Well, that's awful.

But I read of a nice tit for tat plan on yourbob's LJ that I hope gets put into practice. An initiative to invalidate all marriages in the state, including retroactively, taking the state entirely out of the marriage biz. And letting them see what it feels like to have their marriages invalidated.

I hope it gets put forward.

I hate it when they pull this "for the children" bullshit. I was playing Ken marries Shredder from TMNT way before anyone tried to convince me that gays were good or bad. (My brother decided to have Michelangelo kidnap and marry Barbie early on.)

Also, some nice story about a prince and prince is way more tame, romantic, and realistic than how I learned about gay relationships. My brother found a video tape on the street when we were walking home from school, so we brought it to a friends house to watch it. At the time, I was 8, he was 6, his friend was 6 and her younger sister was 4. It was transvestite cult worship orgy style porn.

We passed the tape on to everyone we knew and by the time I reached middle school, there were multiple copies and everyone I knew had seen it. We also had a good collection of lesbian porn magazines from the teenagers who left them in our tree house.

"Silly mommy, we're not playing doctor, we're all worshiping his sacred peepee with our tongues like in that fun video!" :DDD [FAIL]
