desertions: (I DID MY BEST XO)
On the downside, it looks like 8 is going to pass, though it's really fucking close.

I was going to stay up to see the results, but might just check in the morning. The excitement is wearing down and I'm crashing. And I have classes tomorrow :|||

Other stuff and things other than the election poking around in my head, but that's for another time. Or not. I don't know. We'll see. Same old blah blah blah, whine whine, petty bullshit.

But for now, beeeed +_+ Yes. Now. Hopefully it will go better than last night. We can only hope
desertions: (So Uncomfortable)
Prop 8 and 4 are still too close to call. Nervewrecking, that.

I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm still estatic that Obama won, but the other stuff, like propositions and stuff are just as important as that. And when I see rights being taken away in the state I live in? It's not cool.

For those who don't know, Prop 8 is trying to reban gay marriage. In June, the supreme court of California decided gay marriage was legal. This is trying to undo that. As someone who identifies as bi, and has lots of friends who are gay or bisexual, it's very upsetting, seeing our rights being taken from us. It's not right.

Prop 4 is trying to make it so minors can't have abortions without getting parental permission. Which is all well and good in theory, but there's too much grey area. I mean, what if her dad was the one who knocked her up? Or what if her parents are the type to throw her out of the house for getting pregnant? Or how about the parents who make their daughter who got raped keep the child, even if it was going to cause her extreme emotional damage? I just...it's too much grey, and limiting abortion rights in general makes me nervous. And besides, if they have to inform their parents to get legal ones, girls might just go out and get the back alley kind so they don't have to do that, and put themselves in danger by doing so. It's not a good situation.

I know, I know, alot of people are getting tired of political talk, but too bad. This is very important to me, so I want to write about it.

But as my first class was canceled, I think I might grab a nap before my next one +_+
