For those of you in other states, or with your heads up your asses (which means a lot of Californians), this is what Proposition 8 wants to do:
- Changes the California Constitution to eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry in California.
- Provides that only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.
The majority of the television ads that are being run in favor of Proposition 8 feature a running theme of not wanting gay marriage taught in schools. Now, it would be silly for me to cite the place in the California Constitution that states schools and parents choose what is taught to children, because it does not matter. Why does it not matter? Well, we know why the Republicans don't want gay marriage legal, and it has ZERO to do with children, and everything to do with religion.
But in any case, that is not the point of this post. What absolutely grinds my gears is that the Republicans for Proposition 8 are using children in their ads to scare to the general public into voting Yes on election day. These commercials literally made me sick to my stomach. Play with people's emotions however you want - tell them it is their American duty, or that gay people are evil like those evil Jews - but you fucking sons of bitches need to keep children out of it. Apparently the mother of one of the girls in the ads feels the same way. Why she let them use her daughter in their ads in the first place is beyond me, but I guess she wised up after-the-fact:
As for the actual matter at hand, the whole should we "allow" gay marriage to be taught in schools? If parents actually cared that much about their children being taught math and science, as they evidently do about their kids being taught gay marriage, we would be much better off as a society. Oops, did I say "science"? Let me put it in terms that Republicans will understand - witch craft. :)
In any case, vote however you want. Vote yes, vote no, don't vote, whatever. Tell your kids what is evil and what is good, and all that fucking jazz. Just next time you are going to run a political ad with children, remember that you are the lowest scum on the face of the fucking planet.
This ad paid for by the "What the fuck were you thinking by putting children in your fucking political ads" coalition.
