Yesterday's protest at Stanford University, organized by the Emma Goldman Society for Queer Liberation and National Marriage Boycott, was featured in the British-based Guardian, one of the most celebrated liberal newspapers in the world.

Author Sarah Wildman writes,

"'I'm disappointed, but not surprised,' said Sarah Masimore, 20, a sophomore (second year) student at Stanford University who was out protesting against the gay marriage ban on campus today. 'The judicial precedent,' of repealing the ballot measure and determining that it was an unconstitutional was unlikely, she pointed out, 'but it's ridiculous that our rights can be voted on.'

Masimore was dressed in wedding white and handing out small slips of paper urging protesters to log on to nationalmarriageboycott.com and pledge not to marry until everyone can marry. That's because young Masimore realises that unless you had both your life partner and your act together for that brief halcyonic window of 2008, as a gay or lesbian couple, you have now been pushed to the back of the bus on marriage and partnership in the state of California."
