What happened to the land of the free and home to gays?

WTF happened in Ca, Fl, AK last night?

California and Florida said no to gay marriage. Arkansas said no to same sex couples adopting. Again...WTF?

As gleeful as I am knowing Obama is our president elect I have to reflect on the fact that it's a good day for the general population, and a bad day for civil rights. What's going to happen next? Are we going to have water fountains with signs that say "homosexual" and "heterosexual" over them? Are we going to have gay and straight buses? I'll take the gay bus, I'm sure it would be much more fabulous ;p

Mad wanted to watch the results coverage. I told her it was going to be a long night and just go watch I-Carly. She looked at me like I was insane. She said, " mama what is more important, cartoons or this election?". My child she is.

I have lots on my mind today, I will have to continue later.

Regardless of who you voted for it's time for us to come together as a country and work as one. I hope laws will change to where every human being on this planet will be treated equally.

Update 3:46pm eastern time:

"Roughly 400,000 votes separate yes from no on Prop 8 – out of 10 million votes tallied.
Based on turnout estimates reported yesterday, we expect that there are more than 3 million and possibly as many as 4 million absentee and provisional ballots yet to be counted.

Given that fundamental rights are at stake, we must wait to hear from the Secretary of State tomorrow how many votes are yet to be counted as well as where they are from.

It is clearly a very close election and we monitored the results all evening and this morning.
As of this point, the election is too close to call.

Because Prop 8 involves the sensitive matter of individual rights, we believe it is important to wait until we receive further information about the outcome.
