Today, SCOTUS (that’s the Supreme Court of the US… and not to be confused with any male genitalia) heard testimony regarding Prop 8, the California amendment banning anything that is not good old fashioned opposite-sex marriage. And now they’re playing coy about the whole thing by not laughing with Roberts being all “Why the fuck are we even listening to this shit? This is America. Freedom, equality, and all that shiz. Yeah Prop 8 is fucking bullshit. Get it together, California, you stupid dickholes. OVERTURNED. GO HOME, PROP 8. YOU’RE DRUNK.”
So… now we just keep waiting. Because apparently real people waiting to be considered equal under the law is something we still do in 20 fucking 13.
Oh also today North Dakota bans all abortions sought by women who are pregnant enough to have a positive pregnancy test. So there’s other good news for people who hate everything about the world being a decent place to live.
Prop 8? North Dakota? What the hell? And how is this a thing? Discuss.
