Shame on the people who voted for and ultimately passed amendment 1 in north Carolina. Your actions are unforgivable.
However. There is a lesson here. For anyone who thought the 2012 election was gonna be a cake walk. Or that America was finally moving in the right direction, socially. Or that maybe there was good out there despite everything.
Nope. There are still mean spirited, cruel idiots out there fucking shit up for the rest of us.
I personally believe many votes were based in ignorance (a diverse population avoids states where diversity is not welcome & it’s easier to deny people their basic human rights when they’re faceless) rather than intentional cruelty, but maybe I’m naive.
Either way, this is an excellent point. November will be very important.
