Amendment One proposes to change the state constitution in such a way that not only would ban same-sex marriage, it would prohibit the law from offering any accommodations to any couples of any configuration, which could have such far-reaching effects as, for example, nullifying any domestic violence protections for unmarried women.
In other words, even people who oppose same-sex marriage should vote against Amendment One.
However, the campaign to get this message across to the state seems to be falling short, and as we approach the final week before the vote, that’s really fucking scary.
So click through this link and vote in this meaningless television station poll. And then make sure you tell everyone you know who votes in North Carolina, and everyone you know who knows someone who votes in North Carolina, why they should VOTE AGAINST AMENDMENT ONE.
