July 2, 2009

Prop 8 is back in the courts. Today the first hearing of the federal case brought against Prop 8 by the team of Ted Olson and David Boies will be heard in theNorth California U.S. District Court with the case assigned to Judge Vaughn Walker. It's the first step of many towards over turning the laws that Prop 8 put into the books. The laws that:
  • Singles out gays and lesbians for a disfavored legal status, thereby creating a category of "second-class citizens."
  • Discriminates on the basis of gender.
  • Discriminates on the basis of sexual orientation.

Do you think these guys have a valid case? Here's to you T.Olson and D.Boies. Good Luck.

Those bastards who drive the sodomymobile also show up at funerals of gays & lesbians. Needless to say if they slipped in front of an 18 wheeler I wouldn't stop to help.

The Sodomymobile? I've got some gay and bi male friends who might call their vehicles that! You can even make a sticker: "If the Sodomymobile's a-rockin', don't come a-knockin'."

In all seriousness, I really, really, really hope the lawsuit accomplishes what it needs to. Good luck! Looks like y'all in California can use some! *hugs*

I think they have a case.

Sodomymobile? That's freaking outrageous!

Laura Lee said...

Remember that part of the X-Men movie where the senator is turned into a mutant, and suddenly sees the error of his ways?

Why oh why can't we get Magneto to do the same to these guys? Yes, turn them into mutants! If that's what it takes.

Laura is a riot! Mutants R Us!

Actually, probably many of these people fighting the hardest against us are closet cases themselves. Keeping my fingers crossed for this one too.
