[The Life of Shaun #284] H8ppy birthd8y to Sh8un!

Amongst all the big stakes and flash of the presidential campaign, another important story has gotten lost: the not-so-little-state-that-could, has started to can't.

Earlier this year, California became the second state to legally recognise that gays and lesbians are full citizens, too, and legalised same-sex marriage.  Immediately, the hateful amongst its population (and from other states) mobilised to take away this right.  The fruits of their effort is Proposition 8 on this November's ballot.  Proposition 8 is a state constitutional amendment that would not only ban same-sex marriage for future couples, but would strip all those who have already wed of their marriages and all the rights inherent with them.

I don't send out Life of Shaun eMails for political donations normally, but... well, as many of you know, my birthday is coming up next month.  Those of you out there who would be so inclined to buy me a drink on my birthday, but cannot, I would ask that instead you go here:

and donate the cost of a drink to fight this amendment in lieu.

Here's hoping that prejudice fails in the Golden State!

Cheers,
Shaun
