The Power of Queer Opposition

One day after the results of the likely marriage ban in California queers and allies flooded the state with peaceful protests.



Above is a picture found on Joe My God of 5,000 protesters at the San Francisco city hall. I re-posted this because it demonstrates the strength of our community to stand united and to stand strong in fierce opposition to bigotry.

Isn't that just like......holding candles for the choir? Why don't they march through some African-American neighborhoods since they're the ones who clinched "yes" on Prop 8.

I think people should just their heads out of their asses, and see the light. I am a straight women with 2 boys! And if gay men and women want to get married,let them. I am married to a straight man, and my marriage isn't the best. We all have our problems. And for the issue of this being taught in shchools, that's crazy. The teaching should start in the home. And if one of my boys came to me,and said they were gay, it doesn't matter. It's all about being happy.

The people have spoken twice. Please leave it alone. Stop wasting taxpayer money. Who's the bigot here?

Anonymous 1 - I agree and thanks for your support as a straight ally.

Anonymous 2 - The people shouldn't decide. The majority should not decide the minorities rights. You stop wasting tax payer money with your bigoted propositions. Leave us be. Gay marriage is great for the California economy.

I can only hope against hope that this Prop * can be overturned somehow! It is definitely not a waste of taxpayer money to end discrimination!

I have absolutely no right to tell anyone how to live their life, and I don't feel the government or the state does either. People get over it!
