Wasn't Prop 8 JUST a california thing? So now, 46% of a california vote = 50% of the nation being apathetic or voting your way? Considering only 7 million of california's 37 million voted yes to prop 8, that's less than 21% of californians. So, saying it's '50%' of the nation just doesn't swing with me.
Yes Prop 8 was just CA, but I am taking that example. In the 31 states that had a proposition like Prop 8 in CA had, at least 20% of the electorate voted in favor of equal rights. That's more than the gay population. And we should accept that and commend them for that.
