OK, I refuse to turn Ian's comment forum into an argument about abortions.
But, um, fuck.
My state went for Kerry as well (Oregon). Unfortunately we also went for the anti-gay vote. After years of defeating moronic anti-gay amendments, the fuckers found one wrapped in satin the average voter could fall for.
Humorously, one could interpret the amendment as prohibiting a heterosexual from remarrying. I hope someone figures out how to enforce that. Meanwhile we face years and millions of dollars enacting legislation piecewise toward providing moderate civil rights to gay couples.
Way to go, Oregon! Shit.
