Okay, guys, help me out here.
1. Donate.
2. Make one of these:

Equality for all is a fantastic idea but not a very good slogan. I like this one better, and I want to see it spread.

Protect real marriages. Vote NO on 8.

(Also, if you happen to know of any place I could legally put some more of these where people might, you know, see them, that would be fantastic. I've got the cardboard, I've got the big black marker, but I don't have street-facing property.)

[Edit: Also also, here is a brand new no_on_prop_8 community.]

Just noticed this today...

No on Prop 8
Apple is publicly opposing Proposition 8 and making a donation of $100,000 to the No on 8 campaign. Apple was among the first California companies to offer equal rights and benefits to our employees’ same-sex partners, and we strongly believe that a person’s fundamental rights — including the right to marry — should not be affected by their sexual orientation. Apple views this as a civil rights issue, rather than just a political issue, and is therefore speaking out publicly against Proposition 8

Makes me amused because they are basically undoing the threats on the yes campaign.

How about "Defend Marriage. Vote NO on 8."

I like that better...or 'protect all marriages' or 'protect all families'.

'Real' sounds too republican ;)

I like stealing their language.

"All marriages" is distinct from "some marriages". "Real marriages" is distinct from "the vague concept of 'marriage'". "Real" more directly addresses the opposing campaign; "all" is probably easier to parse.

I'd go for Actual instead of Real. Using real sound like it's making the implication that heterosexual marriages aren't real. All works too.

Hm. I don't see an implication difference between actual and real.

I could hang a bunch of variants and see which one gets torn down first. Empirical effectiveness testing.

Cafepress has not yet sent us our lawn signs. There are several other designs on Cafepress that use the slogan "Protect marriage."

A "Yes on 8" person phoned me today with a "survey question" that was worded: "Are you voting yes on traditional marriage or no?" I hung up.

If you want a sign (or bumper sticker), I have some. I am in the Palo Alto Area. Once you get your Cafepress sign, just pass it off to someone else.

If you want a sign (or bumper sticker), I have some.

There is a Yes on 8 rally along El Camino in Redwood City today. The OH is going out to counterprotest around 3pm.
