Maine kills gay marriage
Living in the US these days, you’d never know the country has some pretty fucking serious problems that need to be addressed; specifically the shitty economy, the two wars you can’t seem to get out of, and the fact 40 million people are without health insurance. It seems like the only REAL issue for many Americans is gay marriage, and I’m sad to announce that one of the few states where it’s still legal (Maine) just voted it down.
The majority has spoken, and their voices overwhelmingly decided certain individuals aren’t worthy of the same rights as others (another victory for the tyranny of the majority!). It’s a historic day for Mainers, as they’ve proven once again you don’t need a tyrant to take people’s rights away; you just have to rely on people’s bigotry to do it for you!
I thought you were cool, Maine. You’re a beautiful state, and I always found Mainers shared similar values to us Canucks. I guess if you’re gay, however, their friendly demeanor changes just a little bit. Mainers, you’ve just proven America as a whole still has a lot of fucking growing up to do.
