Be the Change…

Well NC took that to a whole new level yesterday.  Unless you’ve been living under a rock you probably heard about the Amendment that passed yesterday.  {If you would like to know more click here.}  Well I did my civic duty and went to the poll after work to vote.  This is just a primary election but I felt the passage of this Amendment was worthy of my “against” vote.

I won’t go into a lot of explanation, you can read for yourself, but it makes me very sad that as a society we continue to vote for inequality.  What’s worse is only 35% of the registered voters in NC went to the polls yesterday.

I think the worst part is people are so narrow sighted they can’t see that this amendment doesn’t just ban gay marriage, something that is currently banned in NC anyway, it takes away rights of ALL non married partnerships gay or straight.  Not to mention the harm it could do to those in domestic abuse situations.  This is structured similar to the Ohio amendment which allowed some of those convicted of domestic violence to be released.  It makes me very sad that, in 2012, we can’t just move past the gay issue.  And that people would be so bothered by this that they would do more harm then good.
