NORTH CAROLINA VOTERS APPROVE MARRIAGE INEQUALITY AMENDMENT

fter months of contentious campaigning on both sides of the issue, AP is reporting that North Carolina voters have approved Amendment One. The constitutional revision bans not only same-sex marriage, but civil unions and domestic partnerships as well. Voter turnout is expected to break 2008′s primary record of 2.1 million. Opponents got reports earlier in the day that young voters in some areas were receiving incorrect ballots preventing them from voting on the amendment. Conservatives are celebrating a victory, but the vote count so far seems to mirror polling that consistently found that voters were largely unaware of the full impact of the measure. The majority of people in North Carolina clearly do not support this kind of anti-gay discrimination, but misinformation won the day.

Fuck this shit, fuck the people who created this shit in NC, and fuck the people that voted it in. I now have friends who are emotionally hurt and angered by this, and who are most likely crying right now who live in NC because of this, and that pisses me off so hard. And as a straight person who doesn't live in NC, I would like to go have a visit, find every stupid ass straight person who smugly voted this shit in, and do this,



...to them. Repeatedly. I can't.
