I never, ever believed I would see a ballot proposition that would ask voters to strip basic human rights away from a select group of citizens. I found it difficult to swallow that anyone would want to rewrite a state constitution in a way that allows outright discrimination and condones the political persecution of anyone. It didn't seem possible that people would vote their ideological comfort over the civil rights of others.

Yet here we are.

Truly, I am mortified, and embarrassed to be a Californian right now.
