It reminds me of what happened right before slavery was outlawed, and then right before voting rights were finally enacted. The opposition feels its control slipping away, so it gets baroque and insane in its attempts at control.

Then, the oppressed group and its allies rise up say "Knock that shit off! We're people too, assholes."

It may be a series of setbacks that piss everyone off, but the tide is turning, very slowly. Just the idea that these people think this behavior needs to be stopped means that the behavior is happening. Before, it wasn't even happening; it was so underground that it couldn't even be acknowledged. Now, it's so common, it scares people and they're trying to stop the tidal wave.

They won't be able to stop it.

Arkansas Gay Couple Adoption Ban Proposition:

Yes: 57%
No: 43%

Reporting: 56%.

Arkansas would like to remind everyone that the ban in this amendment is on all unmarried sexual partners, and not just gays. It's purely a coincidence, they swear.

At least they're equal opportunity offenders.

And how are they checking to see if the people who want to adopt are sexual partners or not?

This bigotry will, too, end.

Time waits for no man.

In the meantime, other states and nations will be a beacon of light for you to show you what equality means.

True. The only thing we can do is try our best to accelerate it's end...

Proposition 8, which would ban same-sex marriage in California, is off to an early lead, with absentee ballot returns showing the measure with 56 percent of the vote, according to the Secretary of State's Office.

Only 13 percent of precincts were reporting at 9 p.m.

Exit polls had the race a virtual tie. Parents, churchgoers and voters who never attended college said they voted for the gay marriage ban, while college-educated and nonreligious voters opposed it, according to The Associated Press.

It will end. The crescendo of fear is cresting about this, and then it will subside. Every group endures this when it finally demands equality.

On a positive note, the major obstacle that has stood in the way of NY State legalizing gay marriage - the Republican-majority State Senate - fell tonight as we are now looking at a Democratic-majority State Senate. I think once they've tackled the looming budget deficit issue, we'll see another attempt to pass the legislation and now there will be a much better chance of it passing, the State Assembly and the Governor are already supportive...
