About this journal
I post vampire porn and random squawks here. You may also be subjected to local news, provided it's absurd, and pictures of my children during their formative years. Politics will be mentioned at times, and it goes without saying those posts will also be absurd.

Prop 8 is unconstitutional

Good news

It's seemed clear it was unconstitutional, with even conservative Constitutional scholars arguing against it, but now the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has spoken.

Cue "activist judges" rhetoric in 5, 4, 3...

I love this wording:

"Proposition 8 serves no purpose, and has no effect, other than to lessen the status and human dignity of gays and lesbians in California, and to officially reclassify their relationships and families as inferior to those of opposite-sex couples. The Constitution simply does not allow for laws of this sort."
