Do I even have to tell you that I’m in favor of same-sex couples’ right to civil marriage? Well, I’m sure I don’t, especially if you’ve read my posts on the first same-sex wedding at Disneyland, or my reaction to the California Supreme Judicial Court decision which made it possible. Or if, oh, you just happened to notice that I’m pretty darn passionate about queer politics and culture.
But just the same, I’m gonna tell you again…and encourage my California readers to vote no on Proposition 8. I know in a lot of cases I’m preaching to the choir here. But I also want to assure those of you who might be on the fence that in fact we’ve had same-sex civil marriage here in Massachusetts for a few years now, and not only have opposite-sex marriages still managed to thrive, but even some of the folks who were nervous about the change have (mostly) gotten pretty chill about it.
I have seen many, many marriages I thought should be stopped…but never because of gender! When you wish upon a star, it shouldn’t matter who you are.
