Following my last post, I'm disappointed to see that California has voted for Proposition 8, banning same-sex marriage within the state. Quite how the same people can also vote for Barack Obama who opposed the proposition and specifically mentioned including gays in his acceptance speech I don't know, but I'm sure that the San Francisco Chronicle is correct that religious prejudices had something to do with it.
How much longer will we be held back by such crippling ignorance? When will people simply learn to live and let live? If consenting adults choose to live their lives in a particular way without adversely affecting anyone else, then where is the problem? This week has seen a great victory against racism, but there is clearly still a long way to go.
