Prop 8: Sad

As of 6:30 AM this morning, with 94.6% ( 24073 of 25423 ) precincts of reporting, "yes" (change the California constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman) has passed.

Yes: 5,125,752 52.1%
No: 4,725,313 47.9%

I know I say this all the time, but I just don't understand it. If you do not like gay sex, if you do not want to be involved in a same-sex relationship, then don't. Why do these people feel like they should be able to force their opinions onto others?

Also, why would anyone feel that anything anyone else does can change the quality of their marriage? (Or whatever the wording of that stupid fear was.) The value of your marriage is set by you and the person you're married to, not by anyone else. If you let others set the value on your relationship, then something's very wrong...

Thankfully the California Supreme Court has said repeatedly they'll overturn this (again) if it passes. Thank god (irony!) that progress will be forced upon people; even if they're dragged kicking and screaming, we will move forward to a less hate-filled future. I'm just sorry it has to be forced on people...
