California has voted in Proposition 8.
So while the whole of America is self-congratulating, heralding the dawn of a Brave New World, and announcing themselves as the ‘greatest democracy on earth’, the exact same country has decided that gay people do not deserve the same rights as straight people.
And before anyone gets all pedantic on our back bottoms, we know it’s California and not the whole of the US and A, but if anything that’s even more of a bummer (best excuse that pun before California gets all tetchy) – bearing in mind this is liberal, left-wing California and not Texas we’re talking about.
And before anyone gets all pedantic on our back bottoms x2, we know being given the vote on this issue is all terribly democratic but sometimes, just sometimes, the stupid people really shouldn’t be given the vote. It’s why clever people (usually) are in charge.
Head? Hang it in shame, etc.
ps. Florida and Arizona have also banned gay marriage. Who knew, boo, etc. Oh that rhymes.
