DOMA + Prop H8 = FAIL


Equality Wins

The Supreme Court has finally ruled that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is unconstitutional. (Gee, you think?) As a result, California’s Proposition 8 appeal was dismissed. The Supreme Court definitely won some points in my book for this. Now all they need to do is legalize all forms of marijuana/cannabis/hemp for all purposes (recreational/medical/industrial) and I may actually begin to like a select few politicians.

To my LGBTQIA (sorry if I forgot any letters) friends, congratulations on this victory. In a perfect world, people shouldn’t have to fight to love whomever they want. This world is far from perfect, but at least this is a huge step in the right direction.

This victory isn’t only a victory for the LGBTQIA community. It is a victory for everyone who values their own rights and freedoms. If basic liberties are taken away from a certain group of people, it’s only a matter of time before somebody wants to take away some of your rights. Even those who supported DOMA and Prop 8 for whatever reason will benefit from them failing. The DOMA supporters lost absolutely nothing from DOMA failing. But actions like this start a snowball effect that lead to other liberties being restored that actually do make a difference to these people. The more freedoms Americans in general have, the better.

I found this video on YouTube, and thought it was fantastic for the occasion. Enjoy. And to my LGBTQIA friends, your victory is also a victory for this straight supporter.

  1. A great video! People should never be treated differently based on whom they love. It’s nice to see DOMA an Prop 8 struck down. America can now join the rest of the modern world.
