CA Gay Marriage

Prop. 8 -- the California Constitutional initiative to outlaw gay marriage -- is now ahead in the polls.

If you are a US citizen and can afford it, even if you don't live in CA, please consider donating to the No on 8 campaign. There are plenty of good reasons why this amendment shouldn't pass.

Donate: Protect Gay Marriage in California

(Note that you are required by CA state law to provide your address and job title/employer's name -- if you leave them out, or put "decline to state" or something similar, they will likely have to refund your contribution.)

(If you didn't get me a birthday present this year, donate and we'll call it even. :D)

I'd donate if the government didn't just fine me a few hundred dollars that I don't have :P

Hopefully it won't pass, but it's not like it matters yet. Even if it doesn't pass, gays still don't have the rights that heterosexuals do. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defense_of_marriage_act
"The Federal Government may not treat same-sex relationships as marriages for any purpose, even if concluded or recognized by one of the states."

So yea, small step for man. Still so many more important things to worry about on that front, however. (and polls don't mean shit :P)

My worry is that you liberals are all such lazy asses. I'm going to bet that a large percentage of the people who said "no" to the polls were liberals who wouldn't vote anyway.

It does matter in the sense that as more states allow gay marriage, it will become harder and harder for the federal government to justify keeping DOMA around. It gives the rest of the country more of a chance to see that gay people are not, in fact, the spawn of Satan -- and legalizing gay marriage won't cause society as we know it to end.

People keep saying polls don't mean shit. I have a really hard time believing that -- there are plenty of mathematically-provable, statistically valid ways to take polls. Yes, there is bias, and no, not all polls will use those methods. But historically they have been pretty good predictors (e.g. for presidential elections).

Also: I'm only socially liberal. With a few exceptions, most of the rest of me is Libertarian. :P

I know it does matter in the end. But if it passes now, it's not the end of the world.

I still don't want it to pass of course

This is true. It would just make life (and the inevitable march of progress) so much easier if it failed.
