It was a bittersweet day here in California, Nov 4th. With the passing of prop 8 here in California it makes me wonder just how far the American people (voters of yes on 8, that is) are going to go to strip the fundamental civil rights of people that they disagree with. Civil rights-the basic right to be recognized as a human being, as an American, with the rights to vote, marry, practice their own faith, to work, etc. I wonder, if its that easy to deny a person the right to marry is stripping a woman's right to vote next? to work? Segregation in schools, transportation? Do the gay and lesbian American people have the right to not pay taxes, seeing as how they are not fully recognized? Where are we? Fortunately, there are people out there right now opposing the discrimination and hate and fighting that and they need help.
On Saturday, Nov. 15th there will be a nationwide protest in all states in many major cities all over the country. This country that people come to to be free. To avoid oppression (HA, so much for that!) Above you can click on the link and it will take you to a detailed page where you can find where your local peaceful protest will be held. As a parent now I am passionate about issues that will strengthen this country and the people, the place my son may live in as an adult. So, if you can, if you care, if you HATE the injustice and denying of BASIC! CIVIL RIGHTS of the American people than join up and let your voice be hear! It's not just a gay and lesbian issue it is a human rights issue and involves our whole society! Let's stop this ignorant crap!
