It is just really ugly, because it's the same old song and dance in terms of civil liberties in the U.S. The race issue is no longer a factor and it is a great thing to see Obama as president, but almost fifty years ago he wouldn't even be in congress. The hypocrisy of the civil rights system has me at a loss, because the whole LGBT community is fighting for an individual right to guarantee equality, just as blacks fought for rights of equality. So yeah, it will take some time and organization, but the LGBT community really needs to do some protesting, kind of like last night, but non-violent. They need to start a movement, or else it will be a wishy-washy thing for years to come. Not every state is going to pass it, but if they can get the big states, Florida, NY, NJ, Cali, Illinois, even Texas, to legalize the marriages, then it would start something I think, something good for the LGBT community.
