Shower Curtain Chronicles: Fuck Wisconsin

Shower Curtain Chronicles

Latex painted shower curtains make great, cheap, waterproof banners to display at demonstrations, over freeways or anyplace you want to take it to the anti-gay, anti-Constitution fascists. This blog will feature banners I've made over the years, commentary on the outrages du jour, general observations and accounts of the latest actions by our blog troop as we wield the bathroom accessory cum political billboard.

Fuck Wisconsin

Wisconsin did something they had no business doing, no business deciding on as voters. It was an issue of civil rights and should NEVER have been put before the voters.
While phone banking in River Falls, there were many people that I talked with on the phone who simply had no clue as to what the amendment stood for or what effect their "no" or "yes" vote would have. "If I vote 'no' will that mean gays can't get married?" "Does a 'yes vote' mean gays can get married?" Regardless of this anecdotal confusion, I'm sure the vast majority of people knew exactly what they were doing. The point is, this amendment that should never have been offered to voters in the first place, allowed clueless and/or bigoted people to just totally fuck with the lives of thousands of their fellow citizens, many without even knowing the consequences of their actions.
Some of the volunteers I spoke with at the phone bank will now, as they said they would if the amendment passed, pack up their families and their lives and leave the state in order to protect themselves from the hostile legal environment that is now created there. I'm sure they will be accompanied by thousands more.
