Blacks are polling like 60% for Prop 8. It's sad.

On the other hand, I've been phone-banking like crazy and some of the nicest people I've reached have been elderly black women who look at this as a plain and simple civil rights issue and are adamantly voting no.
the thing that infuriates me most is all that shit they were peddling about for the children. INFURIATED DELY.
Every terrible idea is wrapped in gooey "for the children" fear-mongering. I'd like to, for once, see someone take a stand AGAINST the children, just to hear the shrieking response.
i have ALWAYS taken a stand against the children. i believe in nature not nurture. survival of the fittest, and as children is where they learn the skills to handle shit as adults. if you PROTECT children from the bad shit in life, you are actually abusing them as you take away from them the skills to deal with hardship as adults. this is the primary reason that i tend to hate white kids. white parents are the WORST for latent "protection" abuse.
OMG "HELICOPTER" PARENTS

CHOP CHOP CHOP CHOP CHOP THUBBATHUBBATHUBBATHUBBATHUBBATHUBBATHUBBATHUBBA WHIRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
seriously.

My parents warned me about the stuff that I needed to be warned about but as to hovering over me, forget it.
right. you warn them, then when they get in trouble you say "guess you should have listened better huh?". That is how ANYTHING learns. by seeing terrible behavior rewarded terribly. Not by having every fucking jam you DO manage to get into bailed out by mommy and daddy.

i think what these parents fail to grasp is that it's how your kids behave when you AREN'T there to watch out for them that is important. Because that is how they will behave into their adult lives. You need to give them those opportunities to act on their own, fuck up, correct the behavior, and persevere or they will never ever gain the skill to do that.
There is way too much shouting and camera jitter for me to sit through that.

Where was it filmed, by the way?
Read the description, not going to watch because it would piss me off too much to enjoy lunch.

I will say, though, that there were a ton of Yes folks at High and Macarthur the last two nights, and last night there were a lot of No people as well. From what I could see waiting for the light to change everyone was remaining civil, even when standing very close to each other.
It just enrages me to the point that my head wants to explode! Why the fuck should the church have ANY say on a state institution when they don't pay taxes? Marriage is not exclusively Christian, plenty of pagans get married and their weddings are no less of an abomination than a gay marriage. I'm tired of watching them cock block all alternative lifestyles. When I was in school I ran the Gay Straight Alliance and I spoke out against the rampant homophobia in my school. As a result my friends were ganged up on, I was spit on, called a fag lover etc etc. It only served to harden my resolve. They can fight it all they like but the truth is that this country can only progress. They fought for segregation with the same amount of hatred and vigor but in the end they lost. I believe that within my lifetime every state will allow gays to marry. So FUCK THA HATERZ!
Oh yeah, and did I mention the bay area is the wrong place to live if you hate gays? Move to fucking Kansas.
I was having a little trouble understanding the video.

I don't speak fluent German.
My head is going to explode with this fucking election, I swear.

Guess what? There is *no* "no on 8" up here at all. They aren't even bothering to run ads. Every damn commercial break is "yes on 8" shit about how AWFUL it is that KIDS will be taught 2 men can MARRY. OH THE HORROR.

p.s. me and my dad have gotten into yelling matches over it. I am this close to telling him I eat pussy.
