Screw Virginia, where Santa Clause is probably regarded as a pedophile…

We are alerted to the following via John @ Americablog.com, and righteous indignation is called for...

It’s time Virginia felt the pinch. There really is pay-back for being a bunch of ignorant, hateful bigoted shit-bags. I’m talkin’ boycott.

From 365gay.com:

Virginia lawmakers will consider legislation to amend the state constitution to ban same-sex marriage in the new session of the legislature. Never one to be a leader, they’re lining up behing the 11 other states that beat them to it.

Another bill calls for traditional marriage to be displayed on car licenses. If passed the plates would interlocked gold wedding bands superimposed over a red heart over the legend "Traditional Marriage."

Some Democrats call the amendment repressive and unnecessary. (No shit?) Virginia already has legislation that prevents recognition of same-sex couples.

The law, passed last year, prevents the state from recognizing gay marriages, civil unions, and domestic partnerships, and blocks any "contract or other arrangement" same-sex couples may enter into.

How the hell, and in whose world, is this constitutional?!? Anybody ever hear of freedom of contract? Freedom of association? The right to privacy? Does this cover wills, leases, powers of attorney??

Beautiful countryside in Virginia. Pity I’ll never see it again. And "no more friggin' Virginia hams" is just where it begins. Not where it ends. Join me, and BOYCOTT VIRGINIA!
