To do: Vote as if your rights depended on it!

by Jeremy Hooper

Considering that tomorrow's Washington state election is an entirely vote-by-mail affair (with postmarks needing to be on or before Nov. 3), the good and fair-minded folks at the APPROVE 71 campaign are taking a teensy little moment to remind you:

Subtle? No. But neither is the opposition's attempts to demonize gays and rollback basic rights that aren't even marriage (the concept these "pro-fam" folks supposedly want to "protect). With actions that abject, our objections must be equally active!

And actually, this message goes for anyone, anywhere that there's a vote of great importance. Maine, Kalamazoo, the New Jersey gubernatorial race -- we have a lot at stake all across the nation. So kiddies, don't plan to do a Rip van Dumbass impression tomorrow, or schedule any day-long "24" marathons that 'll turn you into a temporary shut-in. Tomorrow, you make sure that your vote is counted.

Then on Wednesday, we'll hopefully ask nothing more from you than a satisfied smile.

Your thoughts

For all of you here and you Jeremy, I'm so hoping for the best. Personally marriage equality doesn't affect me, but it did my best friend in California. I even felt a knot in my stomach when the damaging result was inevitable.

I probably won't live long enough to see full marriage equality, but it would sure be nice to witness a victory through the voters before then - both for you, and my guaranteed happiness of seeing the christian right finally lose.
