Anti-Gay Marriage Amendments a Problem for Straights

Ohio's straight and unmarried couples are learning a tough lesson today, and perhaps anyone who voted on the "protect family values from the dangerous gay agenda" agenda is learning that they aren't immune from ill-thought out legislation aimed at hurting people.

You see, Ohio voted in '04 like a lot of other places did to hurt gay couples, to put them in their place, and say, "Nope, you can't partake in marriage. That's just for us heteros." It looks like that has come back to bite some heteros in the ass.

The Blend reports that:

On Friday, the 2nd District Court of Appeals ruled that state amendment leaves all unmarried people, straight or gay, ineligible for protection under the law in domestic abuse cases.

Each and every state that has passed one of these anti-gay amendments is, in fact, penalizing anyone in a partnered relationship who is a victim of domestic violence that isn't legally married.


The marriage amendment battle will be on the ballot this year in Alabama, Idaho, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin. Citizens of these states need to realize the ramifications of these amendments.

It's not just about punishing gay people anymore. Are you so blinded by disgust and hate that you are willing to hurt yourself or someone you know just to hurt us?
