Proposition 8, if it goes through, will eliminate any kind of same-sex marriage rights in California. I realize that not that many of the other posters here live in the United States, much less California, but I was curious to hear what you all had to say about such an incredibly regressive measure. So when answering the poll, assume you are a California voter. I'm curious to hear any arguments the other way. It truly bothers me that it is an issue at all.
