L.A. Times: JavaScript Inventor Gave $1,000 To Pro-Prop 8 Forces

The Los Angeles Times is reporting Brendan Eich, the co-founder of Mozilla and the inventor of JavaScript, donated $1,000 to the Proposition 8 Fund, which worked to pass a marriage-equality ban in California.

Despite some legal wrangling, the names, home states and employers of Prop 8 donors’ are on the public record and have been tallied by the Times in a handy online database. (It also lists people who contributed against the ban.) Thankfully, it appears Eich (right) was the only staffer from Mozilla—which operates Firefox, the Web browser you’re probably reading this on—to cough up some dough for the haters.

Y’know, there are a lot of ugly stereotypes about computer programmers, but we’d never put “homophobes” among them—Eich just makes his fellow tech nerds look bad.

Here’s hoping he stays a virgin for another 51 years.
