You may be right about Alabama.
The victory here in AZ is bittersweet - what swayed many voters (and we don't know HOW many of them, but presumably a lot) was the fact that they were made aware of how the amendment affects unmarried straight couples. That was a decisive factor for many, who otherwise wouldn't have cared about its impact on gay couples.
Nevertheless, it was a cruel amendment with sweeping repercussions within and without the gay community - no one should have health insurance taken away by popular vote - and we prevented that. So I'm incredibly glad and relieved.
Never linger too long with the ignorant,
throw stones at their talk.
Walk only with the lovers,
the mirror of the soul gets rusty when
dipped in muddy water.
