THAT Photo

There is much abuzz about a photo that was captured last week in the rally happening outside the Supreme Court of CA re: the constitutionality of the amendment prohibiting gay marriage in CA. The "buzz" was on Dan Savage's site, along with Andrew Sullivan, towleroad, etc.

The sign was simple and straightforward...and hateful:

"Dan White: Hero for killing a queer."

Click here for the image.

This is a reminder of the country where we live, where nooses hang from trees in high school courtyards, women are kept out of certain jobs because of their gender, and hate-crimes against LGBTQ people happen.
