gotta see bigger picture I guess...

I woke up and first thing I heard...

Wisconsin voted to amend the state constitution to ban gay marriage specifically.

talk about the most assinine thing. the votes were kinda close I guess with slightly over 1,000,000 vote for the amendment and 800,000 against. Not bad I guess... its just a huge letdown. Since, hidden within this bill is a part that screws over unmarried couples as well. Yep, forget about any assisstance for man/woman couples that are not married anymore.

I knew ahead of the vote that the amendment to the state constitution was going to win because there are just too many homophobic people in this area. I'm let down still... I saw a political cartoon that hit it right. One slate showed a fat white guy denying rights to women, and in the next one was the same thing but the person was denying rights for gays. This is just a case of history repeating itself. People are people! I don't care what your holy book says about gay people, law and religion should not entertwine!

On the bright side, most of the people I voted for, won their elections.

According to my roommates teacher, Gays make up 10% of the population. And they are mostly in the entertainment industry in important positions, influential, and rich. There is going to come a time when they will all unite to make a stand, force us to change and we won't have a choice. I kind of think this is true, just wish it didn't have to go to that.
