Opposition to equality is appalling

An appalled commenter took issue with my pro-gay-marriage stance in the recent past, and I have to assure her that her appalled feelings are mutual. This fall, a constitutional amendment that would doubly-forbid gay marriage in Idaho, along with civil unions or any kind of domestic partnerships whether they be gay or straight, will be voted on by Idahoans. I couldn't be more strongly opposed to this amendment, and I'm not the only one.

Locally, The Latah County Democrats' central committee meeting is this Thursday night at 7:30, on the subject of this amendment. Fellow Moscow blogger and Liberal Drinker Josh Studor is going to be part of a panel of speakers who will discuss reasons to oppose to this amendment.

If that doesn't get you fired up enough about those pushing heteronormativity, check out the entries in this weekend's Blog Against Heteronormativity Day, hosted by Blac(k)ademic.
