Not even ten years ago I believed that homosexuality was a sinful choice, an abomination. Weird and wrong.

Now, in the last month, in my first real foray into politics, I donated to the campaign against Proposition 8, defending gays' rights. I rallied alongside a busy street in Campbell days before the election. I marched in a nationwide protest for equality this past weekend along with thousands of others. (My sign: "Straights for Equality" / "Separate ≠ Equal") And this is just the beginning.

Change can happen. Just remember to love, not hate, since hate achieves nothing.

Congrats, Prop 8 supporters. You just mobilized a national gay-marriage movement. Enjoy your victory. It won't last. (from mattmay on Twitter)

[I really thought the politicking here would stop after the election... oh well.]
