Re-Visiting California’s Prop 8 (Outlawing Gay Marriage)


Proposition 8, the California measure that bans same-sex marriage, passed by a 52 percent to 48 percent margin. What reasons did people give for voting for it?

  • 27% Always vote yes to everything
  • 11% Thought proposition was a lot of reading
  • 10% Thought it would be last good opportunity to deny someone civil rights
  • 2% Unhappily married gay people too lazy to get a divorce
  • 4% Still trying to prove not gay after that one night with Sean
  • 16% Marriages are already gay enough
  • 1% Love and support their son Frederick, but didn’t want to see him make a mistake by marrying that good-for-nothing Manuel
