I can feel it coming on. The latest news from California has alerted that silent rage within me. Apparently the news is not in our favor about the overturning on Prop 8. After the hearings, the California Supreme Court may have hinted that Prop 8 will stand. But we still need to wait for their final decision.
It feels that the attacks on our freedom just keep coming (at least that's my present perspective) and after being in the movement for 32 years I'm so damn tired of it. Chances are, there are hundreds of thousands of LGBT Americans feeling the same thing; dread, frustration, simmering rage. My anticipation of a bad outcome is from way on the other side of the country from California. I can only imagine what LGBT Californians are feeling right now.
The Right-wing of course will celebrate another victory for "family values" and their "sanctity of marriage" bullshit. Their arrogant righteousness will make the court's decision seem just that much harder to take.
Our rights, our citizenship, our value as equal human beings will have been attacked....AGAIN!....if the court fails to invalidate Prop 8.
So now we wait. And the anger simmers.
Out of the closet and into the streets!
