Got Milk?

Saw "Milk" yesterday. Took me back to my baby dyke days when we all wore flannel and had the same haircut.

I'd just moved to San Diego in 1978, and I vividly remember the No on 6 campaign and Milk's assassination. The parallels to what's going on now with Prop 8 are uncanny.

Can't wait to see it. I remember that time very well - living in Berkeley, I had friends whose family were lost in the Jim Jones kool-aid mass suicide. Hard to believe so many horrible things happened at once to so many of us in the Bay Area that year.

I've been following the Prop 8 and I was sorry to see the result.

In Victoria, Australia we've had two victories. The decrimilization of abortion and last week, the bill was passed into law giving lesbians and single women the right to Assisted Reproductive Therapy. Both women in a relationship with children will be counted as parents with all the rights.
Sometimes politicians can do the right thing.

We've come a long way since the days of Prop 6, but there's still a lot of educating to do.

Yay for the Aussie victories! Conservative America just doesn't get it.
