Yesterday, you may have been surprised to learn that the President of the United States, Barack Obama, gave his support for same-sex marriage. For many of us, this stands as yet another nail in the coffin of bigotry against homosexuals.
You may recall (although you may not because you fuckos aren’t much for reading) our previous article concerning the future of Prop 8 and the rights of the homosexual community within our society at large. Included amongst the normal drivel was a passionate appeal for the amendment of hate crime legislation to include homosexuals, targeted for their sexual preference, under the “umbrella” of protected status as per federal law. Ring any bells? Matthew Shepard, who was brutally murdered, was mentioned? Well the idea of protecting members of the LGBT from persecution based solely on their sexual preference (not that persecution for any reason is ok, you know, unless you’re a conservative wind-bag, but you know what I mean) has been contentious since gay-rights activists began fighting for inclusion since this conversation began waaaaaay back in the early 90’s. In fact, when a similar bill was being pushed through Congress, Bush II threatened to veto it if it ever reached his desk (it didn’t).
