Hey MISSOURI!! Meet EQUALITY MISSOURI! Check this out! Missourians for Equality has a new name, a new look, and supercharged energy to end the legal discrimination of LGBT people in the state of Missouri. Go look at their shiny new website, fancy new logo, and see how you can help the cause. Look for their facebook too and like them. I like them. I love them. I love working for equality for everyone. Do you?
**ETA: they have gotten the evangelical churches from the whole state involved now- writing letters to the city council (I saw one with my own eyes), and obviously getting them all to vote and vote often in the newspaper poll. AND you can vote multiple times a day. The numbers went from 93% to 81% in a day**
Go vote yes for equal rights and equality here
When I first asked for this tumblr bomb/signal boost/whatever/help the yes votes were 92%. Now they are 86%. One of the following things has happened:
1. everyone who follows this tumblr thinks that everyone else will go vote in the local poll [that is upsetting me so much because I’m so angry at the homophobic, transphobic bigots in my town]— so nobody is really voting.”Diffusion of responsibility”
2. people are trying to vote on their phones and it doesn’t work on phones. or aren’t waiting for the poll to load because it is the slowest thing to load on the right side of the page, scroll down.
3. people who follow this tumblr ARE voting but they are voting no because they hate equality. Do you hate equality? Don’t hate equality. People should not fear being fired, kicked out of their apartment, or not served at a restaurant because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Don’t you agree??
4. nobody is reading this an nobody cares = sad
mom LGBT people in northeast Missouri
I’m not asking for money or more than a minute of your time. Please. There are people in my town that feel that if the city council passes a non-discrimination policy to include sexual orientation and gender identity that God will smote this town like Sodom and Gomorra, pedophilia, beastiality, and AIDS will totally invade our town and destroy our children. I think they might be aliens from another planet or something equally as bizarre [reality check, I don’t really think that] . PLEASE JUST GO HERE AND VOTE YES! You don’t even have to live in this state! AND it is now letting you vote multiple times. The no votes were 6% this morning and are now 10%- not coincidental that it is Sunday and the fundamentalist church in town got together. Ridiculous stories an evangelical preacher told are under the cut. TW for accusations of attempted rape.
