This is the stupidest thing ever. Bry tiped me off on his blog, Be With Myself In Center, about this lovely item that will be on California's November Ballot. (and thanks for the image, Bry!)

Here's my favorite ballot argument from their web site:

"Proposition 8 protects marriage as an essential institution of society. While death, divorce, or other circumstances may prevent the ideal, the best situation for a child is to be raised by a married mother and father."

Really? The best situation? C'mon. Who, anywhere, has the right to say that it's the "best"? Just because it's been the social norm for generations doesn't make it the best. It may sound elementary, but seriously. Think about it for a minute.

Now, mind you, they do have an argument, I'm not disputing that...

... but you can argune anything. Haven't you been watching the presidential debates this year?

They then go onto argue on "fundamentals", how teachers will be required to teach gay marriage as the same thing as straight marriage, how it "protects our children", "and [that it] prevents other consequences to Californians who will be forced to not just be tolerant of gay lifestyles, but face mandatory compliance regardless of their personal beliefs."

Well, what about MY personal beliefs as a gay person? Good thing that we're taking care of straight people's personal beliefs over mine, because that's not homophobic, at all.

Anyway, that's all I have to say on that subject.
