Prop H8te: Looming Decision and Blooming Response

The court decision on the unspeakably odious homophobic Proposition 8 is slated to arrive soon, and the scuttlebutt seems to suggest that word comes down sooner rather than later. I don't know why, but I have a bad feeling about this. Surely, if they end up defending the presumed constitutionality of any well-organized minority of bigots to render the minority of their fellow-citizens who happen to be lgbtq into subhumans, they won't be so flabbergastingly stupid to announce this travesty on May 21, the anniversary of the White Night Riots?

This joyful video from the French GayClic Collab Against Homophobia set to a lovely Lilly Allen tune sums up quite perfectly my own response to the eventual decision, whatever it ends up being in the short term.
