A recent poll indicated that youth voters have been instrumental in the fight against California’s Proposition 8. Such a statement should lift progressive people’s spirits, but that’s just one side of the story.
Last month we passed along word about iProtect, a “hip,” youth-targeting website dedicated to regurgitating traditional anti-gay attacks. Well, iProtect’s not the only one working the barely legal angle.
The reason why many people are not in favor of Proposition 8 is that they are not informed on how it may negatively impact their lives. We created whatisprop8.com to inform voters of the direct and indirect consequences of same-sex marriage.
Like iProtect, “What Is” relies primarily on tried-and-true half-truths and panic-ridden politics, i.e. “Children in public schools will have to be taught that same-sex marriage is just as good as traditional marriage.” Good heavens!
