This is a message to my US readers. I won’t be the only blogger asking you to go out today and vote.

For years I have been saying that Yuri doesn’t really equal G/L/B/T/I, and many fans of Yuri and Yaoi are not actually supporters of gay rights. But many of you are, and if *you* don’t get out there and make your voice heard, then we are in for another 4 years of repression, fear and crushing economic and social policies.

Please, get out today and vote.

    Quite … and for Californians who fear their vote “doesn’t count” in the Presidential election, there are a raft of Propositions, from NO ON PROP 8 to the High Speed Rail (Obama wants people to vote yes on Prop 1A), and a boatload of others.

    Hells Yeah, I voted.

    I wonder how it is that some yaoi/Yuri fans are not supporters of gays/lesbians in real life

    And I just can’t decide between the two candidates

    To Filo: while it does seem strange, I sort of hope there is logic behind it, since I’d be worried if all the people who enjoyed lolicon also liked “the real thing”.

    exercise your to vote! your vote matters (even when you think it might not – it does!)

    i waited 40 minutes outside this guy’s garage to cast my ballot this morning – not a long wait in comparison to other parts of the country – but it was worth the wait.

    Yes, I voted as well!

    Unfortunately California’s Prop 8 is coming in as the votes are finishing being counted. But it is close enough where it shows how much support G/L/B/T have behind them. Another four years is not so bad because eventually it will pass. This is the time of Change. :D Wheee~

    Yes we can :D

    Well prop 8 did end up passing in CA but it was only by 2%. There’s still hope but young supporters from my generation need to keep pushing it. Long hauls for sure.
