Some People Are Gay. Get Over It!

So, while the world celebrates the dawn of a new era, the gays of America are having what few rights they have taken away from them.

Unlike most of the civilised world, they are not allowed to marry, which means no inheritance rights, no adoption (a lot of agencies have a ‘married couples only’ proviso), no sitting by your dying partner’s bed even though you’ve been together for 25 years. Oh, but Britney can get pissed in Vegas and marry someone she once went to school with! There’s equality in action for you. Hail the brave new world of Obama.

Anyways, while everyone was celebrating the first black Prez, the gays of West Hollywood (how’s Micky’s rebuild coming along, boys?) took to the streets to protest having their basic human rights removed by the same voters who voted Obama in.
Here is a selection of the very excellent signage on display that night.

In the UK, it was firework night, by the way, where we celebrated a 400-year-old tradition of burning Catholics. Not sounding like such a bad idea looking at how the religious right orchestrated this…

  2. I like their ingenius use of the number 8 and also the swastika. I also like the word ‘theocracy’.

  3. Hey don’t go taking this out on Obama! It’s the fault of the Californian government for actually allowing people to vote on Proposition 8, when clearly democracy is only being used to deny a minority of people their human rights. If Obama wanted to ban gay marriage then why are homosexuals still allowed to marry in Massachusetts and Connecticut? I’m totally against Proposition 8, but we shouldn’t be taking this out on Obama. WE SHOULD BE TAKING IT OUT ON THOSE GODDAMN CALIFORNIANS!!!! All of that plastic surgery n vanity n fakeness has gone to their bloody heads.

  4. No one’s taking it out on BO. It’s just an irony that when the world’s going on about how US just caught up with the 21st century, in this respect they took a step back… BO is the good guy.

  5. Really? Well, Obama said this: “I’m a Christian. And so, although I try not to have my religious beliefs dominate or determine my political views on this issue, I do believe that tradition, and my religious beliefs say that marriage is something sanctified between a man and a woman.”

    He is in favour of civil unions, though.
