I haven’t written word one about Proposition 8 in California. It is not so much that I don’t care or that it doesn’t affect me in some way. It does. It should. Does it affect me in the here and now? Not so much…..but yes, in the bigger scheme of things.
I was hopeful that as some states started to tumble in their gay marriage rulings, others would take a step closer to acceptance. When California barely passed their ban last week, it was unfortunate. Not completely unexpected, but I can’t say I wasn’t hopeful.
My would-be 2nd husband, Keith Olbermann, does a nice commentary on gay marriage and Prop 8. Yes, I know he’s not gay – though I’m not sure he had to make sure everyone knew that only 15 seconds into his schpiel. Other than that, he hits all the nails right on the head.
I would like to think that his thoughts are enough for some of those voting for a ban to rethink what they have done and how things work. I’m not as hopeful about that – but it is still a nice thought.
