i worked a fundraiser fighting against this on sunday. i have been so into this. i have been trying to tell everyone i know. there are so many straight allies that we have that aren't aware of the situation but would totally vote in our favor. they just need to become aware. people, you MUST inform your friends about this, instead of having someone just skip over prop 8 because they weren't sure what it was about, or were unclear, they can vote on our side.
i had a bump with a coworker about this, we kept messaging each other on myspace trying to get the other to change their minds. i finally gave him a response that he didn't return. i asked how is it fair that someone who doesn't believe in God, or religion, can get married in the church that i was baptized in, grew up in, and went to school at? how can this person who doesn't even believe in God have the right to get married there over me? he didn't respond to that.
the other person who didn't agree with me was my father. he has been open to everything about me being gay so far. at first it was a struggle, but he asked the tough questions and his views have changed, but not with marriage. so i was balling on the phone with him last night and i never cry, not even in movies.
just sucks because you always want your family to have your back, and i guess i thought knowing me would be enough for him to think differently. my parents are very religious.
INFORM YOUR FRIENDS ABOUT THIS!!!!!
