Prop. 8 Day of Decision

07/07/10 by Julie Phineas – Mark Solomon of Equality California is calling for all supporters of same-sex marriage in and near the state of California to come together for the Prop. 8 Day of Decision which is expected to be handed down soon. ECQA is searching for same-sex couples and their families to participate in gatherings across the state the day the California Supreme Court makes a decision on the repeal of Proposition 8, the proposition which places a ban on same-sex marriage in California.

You can find out where your nearest gathering location is and more information on how you can participate by visiting www.equalrightsfoundation.org.

One Response to Prop. 8 Day of Decision

    Marc’s a good guy, but this announcement is falling flat with me.

    Frankly, EQCA never gave my wife or me so much as a “Bugger off” during the bloody campaign, despite our volunteering, our many phone calls, our many emails, and the four-figure donations we couldn’t afford (but did anyway).

    Sorry to pee on the parade, but I’ve had it with EQCA (and the rest of Gay, Inc.), which appears to be following the well-worn Democratic Party playbook; i.e., “Fawn over The Expendable Lower Echelon ’til we’ve got their money, then pretend they don’t exist — until the next time we need money.”

    I have the greatest admiration for LezGetReal, and follow LGR consistently — so maybe I’m a bit more dismayed than I should be.

    Bottom line: Where do lesbians fit in — or do we? At least, those of us who can’t afford thousand-dollar-a-plate dinners among the Gay, Inc., Cocktail Set?

    Answer: We don’t. We’re only good for as much money as we can produce.

    We’re not all Ellen or Rachel — and if we ain’t, then we ain’t ham.

    The day of the decision, my wife and I will simply be together, and we will either break out a bottle of champagne, or we will cry together. There’s not much else we can do that will change anything.

    We could contribute so damned much more to the cause, it isn’t funny. And we’ve tried, but nobody wants to know what we think.

    The message we’ve been hearing, all too loudly and all too clearly, is: We do not count.
