Disappointed


I honestly wasn't surprised at today's outcome, but I am still disappointed...so disappointed.

there was a large part of me (wink) that thought the barricades that got dropped off early and newsome's delay request were related to a POSITIVE outcome.

Take a breath and then next steps....

Upholding those 18,000 weddings that already happened though is most interesting...

Kevin said...

@WAT: i guarantee those 18,ooo weddings that were upheld --as a socio-political move-- will come back to bite the CSC in the ass. And in our favour!!

The saddest part about this is that Christianists felt the need to restrict the use.of.a.word.
A lot of gay media critics and whatnot have already been pointing out that we're actually hampered here because California approved full-right "Everything but the word" Domestic Partnerships.
Their last ruling guaranteed us those rights, but Prop H8 only managed to remove the word from the certificate.
Hateful, petty, small...but they can't stop our rights. And progress will keep marching on.

I really hope you get the rights you deserve as we have in the UK here. I hope it all changes soon for the best :-)

I have nothing constructive or proper to say except that I'm thinking of you guys and wishing you, and all of us, better days ahead.

Same here: not surprised, but very very disappointed.

hopefully, it's just a matter of time.
At least CA is not stuck in the medieval age like my homestate.

It's okay, because when the time comes to fight this at the voting booth, I'll bet the outcome will be different. People just became complacent, and assumed it would get shot down.

Not surprising. But change is coming. The gay youth of today are not going to settle for anything less than equal in the years up ahead.
