When I saw a photo of Proposition 8 supporters celebrating their victory over marriage equality in California, I was enraged. I wanted to run howling into the street. I felt the urge to break, smash, and destroy with all my might.
Those happy people with their fists pumped in the air were partying because the right to marry had been taken from same-sex couples in California. Those pro-Proposition 8 folks were celebrating because the children of same-sex couples were now less secure. Those people were ecstatic because the next day children of same-sex couples throughout America would awake to learn, once again, that their families were reviled.
