Vote NO on prop 8 because it's the right thing to do

Aren't gay and straight people already considered equal? Each and every individual in this country has the exact same rights as each other. Rights are not granted to couples of either sexual orientation. Rights are granted to individuals. The Constitution protects and gives equality to individuals. Gay marriage is illegal for both gay and straight people. There is nothing keeping a gay man from marrying a woman. It's his choice whether he decides to exercise his right to marriage or not. Nobody is keeping anybody from marrying.

But let's ignore the fact that everybody is already treated equally and look at it like this: Why should gay marriage be allowed if it will still remain illegal for three people to get married, or four? Why should it be allowed if it will remain illegal to marry your brother or sister or mother? Certainly you want "equality" for everybody and not just gay and straight people, right?
