This is the second ad released by the No On 8 campaign, to protect marriage rights for same-sex couples.
that right vote NO!!!
I think this commercial twists the reality of the situation. Prop. 8 is not eliminating rights.
For straight people, to get married, it certainly is a privilege, because marriage is not available to everyone. And when some people have the privilege of doing something, when someone else can't, that means there's inequality floating in the air. Saying no to Prop 8 removes that privilege, hence making everybody equal. Duh.
Not the most effective commercial. It takes a lot longer than ten seconds to convince most people who "don't know how they feel," so for that woman to come around so quickly is unrealistic... and unconvincing.
I don't know; I think a lot of people are out there who don't like something personally but don't want to force their opinions on everyone else and, yes, eliminate rights. The problem is the right-wing fundie-types who'll never be convinced, not the undecided folks who don't much care either way.And yes, above commenter, removing rights is the whole point of Prop 8. Haven't you been listening?
