I have not been pro 8 at any point, but I feel so strongly about it, I feel had begun to feel ignorant, not understanding how ANYONE with any sense of good inside of them could support this measure to change our constitution.
Oh, and to double check, does it seriously need a 50%+ vote to pass? or is it 66% like the US Constitution?
A good article on how the APA resolved the matter. I interpret the last line as to mean that heterosexuals hold certain values about their heterosexuality that conflict with homosexuality.
The funniest thing I see about this is that the church seems to find homosexuality WAY more normal than I do, or much anyone else I know.
What I hear from no on 8 people is that gay is normal for some people, that is just the way they are, and I am different.
The Yes on 8 people say that everyone really wants to be gay and that if people learn about being gay or that being gay is ok, everyone will become gay, and nobody will take care of their families or children or society because being gay is just too wonderful, but the human species will die out!
And even if there was some chance of that being true, is the idea of continuing the species, or heterosexual intercourse, or the opposite gender so detestable to you you need a law to make sure everyone else has to suffer as much as you sacrifice on a regular basis?
Can I just stop for a moment and say... WTF!?!?!?!??
Of course there is always the possibility that this is just the most politically correct way of saying they REALLY like sex,and know what a pain they can be in relationships such that if men can get their pleasure from other men, they will never get laid again.
The more I think about it, the yes on 8 people must have the biggest homo fantasy EVER about the world and the way people work. In a way... it is kinda hot.
It is like as if being hetro is some kind of struggle to make the world a better place, to which I just go HUH?!?
I have been with men and women. I appreciate them each in their own way, but discovered I am VERY straight. It even hurts some times because I believed it was all programming and that everyone in a natural environment was bisexual... and I felt SOOO enlightened... but alas it took me no time at all to realize I was hopelessly straight. I think the biggest part is smell. Guys are gross, and the scent of a woman drives me CrAzY!
I guess being heterosexual is just natural for me.
So again I ask, where the hell are these people coming from, if not of a place of deeply repressed homosexuality?
How about for a poster: "Sorry boys, it isn't as gay as you think. No on Prop 8!"
