NO H8.


In 2008, a Proposition was passed in California that put a ban on same-sex marriages. Today, that ban was overturned by US District Court Judge Vaughn Walker, giving the right to same-sex couples to marry. I may offend some people by saying this, but frankly, I don't care because It's ABOUT DAMN TIME. No one should have their rights limited by the government in regards to who they love. It DOESN'T take away from the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman, it isn't gross, or wrong, it doesn't affect anyone but the couple that wants to marry. I'm excited that people that love each other can get married now- legally! Obviously there will be appeals, but for now, there is justice, and that rocks.

NO H8!!


I used Sally Hansen Professional Lavender Cloud as a base for all nails, then used Nubar Sexy Red, Zoya Jancyn, American Apparel Manila, CND Green Scene, CND Anchor Blue, and CND Eclectic Purple for the rainbow. For the NO H8 logo, I used American Apparel Hassid for the black, and Nubar Sexy Red for the red. Topped everything off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

  1. I am so happy about the overturning of Prop 8....being from California I was pretty disgusted with people who voted in favor of it. It still infuriates me when I see bumper stickers supporting it.

    Love the nails!

  2. Thanks! I love this one and I appreciate your support of today's decision. I might just copy you!

  3. I completely agree with your statement and I am thinking of doing my nails like that. People have a right to not be limited by the government. Especially when it has something to do with their personal lives.

  4. I love this mani! I'm from the bay area.. so It's a big deal here! I was upset, thinking I could not really celebrate a wedding when many of my CLOSEST friends could not! It would be like rubbing it in their faces... But now we can all celebrate together...I need to get a boyfriend first though..

  10. I wish my country was as forward thinking as California. If I hear that a marriage should be between a man and a woman one more time I am going to scream. I can marry any man I want and it's only fair that others should have the same right. Good on you for bringing people's attention to the demise of prop 8!

  16. I am so, so happy to see your nails, to see Prop 8 overturned. I have one thing to say to people who don't believe in gay marriage- cool, so don't marry a gay person. Problem solved!

    Your nails are gorgeous, and I'm adding myself to the people who are rocking a variation of this look tomorrow. Mine don't look as sweet as yours, but the sentiment is the same. :D

  18. Marriage has been around for eons longer than any Judeo-Christian God and anyone that thinks the Bible invented marriage or is in anyway necessary to legitimize it is just pathetic. No one got a vote on who I married but ME (and my spouse of course) and that's how it should be for everyone.

    Looooooooooooove the decision and the nails. Definitely going to try my own interpretation for tomorrow.

  34. I HAVE to copy this one. This mani rocks and so does the overturning of Prop 8...get your church outta my state. That's what our forefather's wanted, that's what they meant. So glad to see so many of my nail polish friends are on this side of that silly line. No one seems to remember the time when it was not ok to marry outside of one's race and all the hullabaloo that went along with that fight. Same thing, different time. I feel pretty confident that the outcome will be the same as it was way back then. :)

  40. @Sandi- Marriage has not been around longer than God, since God was the one who created it and ordained it to be between a man and a woman when he found Eve for Adam, to be the only suitable partner for him. The definition of marriage is between a man and a woman as defined in the bible by God. So it is wrong for us humans to think that we are better than God, and that we have the right to redefine what God has established. When you allow God to have a say in who you should marry, that's the best decision you can make, because he only wants what it is best for you because he loves you (the true meaning of love defined by God in 1 Corinthians 13). I'm pretty sure that we will all agree that we would want our spouses to love us as described in this verse, even though it is hard because it does require a lot of work.

    I don't hate homosexuals, and that is not how I am trying to come off, I just don't like it when a person disrespects the bible out of ignorance.

  41. What a great manicure and you're totally right it is about time! I am so thankful for this progress. As someone who has family member who is gay as well as many friends I am so pleased. I proudly support them and celebrate in this victory too. Thank you for sharing you for sharing this wonderful manicure today!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I don't live in Cali, but I am 18 years old, and I am a strong Catholic, so I would've voted in support of Proposition 8. I have absolutely NOTHING against homosexuals, but their marriage just offends me. HOWEVER, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and I respect yours.

    That note aside, I have read your blog every single day for the past 6 months. And I have to say, you have amazing art skills. Like your Marilyn Monroe mani? I cannot think of anyone besides you who could actually make a good-looking portrait of someone on your nails, so props to you.

  45. It makes me sad to see how young the bigoted posters were. If they are that filled with fear and hate at that age, imagine how they'll be as they age.
    Sad.

    For the posters who are trying to say that the bible says gay marriage is a sin.
    Please read this website (actually read all the way). It is written by a biblical scholar. A person who has studied the bible extensively and it's history... not just someone who is repeating what they hear in church on sunday or someone who reads one verse out of context and decides it means whatever agenda they want to push.

  46. You can believe whatever you want morally or religously, but the laws of our country are not based on the bible or one groups moral beliefs.

    They are meant to be based on the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

    Telling someone who they can or cannot choose to love and spend their life with based on your own morals or religion is exactly like when black and white people couldn't get married legally.

    It doesn't matter if you agree. It's not right.

    The issue isn't your bible or your god. You can still go to church and preach bigotry and hate every sunday (because of the Constitution protecting your rights). You just can't deny them the basic civil rights that they should be allowed as citizens.

  47. LOVE THESE NAILS! (: I live in Cali and i was disgusted when prop 8 was put in place : / I am so glad people are finally coming around. However I do have to say that the mean posts on here make me sick to my stomach. I am also 15 years old and I couldn't imagine being filled with hate like the other 15 year old. I don't understand in any way how people are "offended" by this. Saying that you have nothing "against homosexuals" and then to say you would have voted for prop 8 makes NO sense. I am christian and I strongly believe god loves EVERYONE. no matter what! I think it is extremely selfish to say that you're offended by something that doesn't even affect you. It doesn't change the rights of anyone straight and it's embarrassing that its 2010 and discrimination is still going on. People are so freaking narrow minded its absolutely ridiculous. Hopefully the new generation (including myself) can really learn to love ALL people and for EVERYONE to be treated equally. People should be accepted for who they are, no exceptions. No H8 (:

  48. A Concerned Reader.August 6, 2010 at 7:51 AM

    I find it funny how AS SOON AS someone states that they are against gay marriage, EVERYONE attacks that person. Just let people believe what they want to believe; and stop trying to force your beliefs onto them. You need to practice what you preach-quit hating and start letting people have their own beliefs.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Dear Concerned, they are quite welcome to be just as ignorant and hypocritical in their beliefs as they like, they are NOT allowed to force their beliefs on others. I am sick to death of faux Christians who can't see that what they are trying to do is not one iota different than what the Taliban is trying to do in the Middle East...force THEIR religious beliefs upon everyone in this country.

  50. The idea is cool. My own belief is marriage is between men and women. But, the idea of the nails are cool

  51. I AGREE with A Concerned Reader. The people that are "so happy" with Prop. 8 are the same hate filled people who ATTACK others for not sharing their beliefs.
    EVERYONE has a right to their belief!! Don't discount my belief system because it happens to be different from yours.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Unfortunately Tam, I've experienced plenty of that from the anti-gay marriage side as well. There are alot of people that force their beliefs on others militantly...I've had plenty of Christians inform me of my fate due to my beliefs. Why is it any of their business I don't care what their beliefs are?!?!

    I don't give a rat's left testicle whether two people straight or otherwise get married, it's between them it doesn't affect me in the least. I do have a problem with discrimination in any way shape or form...50 yrs ago we'd be talking about interracial marriages. Prop 8, and allowing people to vote on people's rights is simply NOT constitutional.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I find it eternally amazing that some people can't see the difference between having their beliefs 'attacked' and being told that they will not be allowed to force others to live by those beliefs. Believe whatever you want, I will defend your right to do so to the death, but as soon as you start trying to force those beliefs on others, I will fight you.

  54. I had no idea that there were so many lost and confused people out there. It makes me so sad. The few that commented that they agreed with the Bible that marriage is to be between a man and a women give him hope for the future. Sandi, you obviously hate Christians and have never read the Bible so please stop preaching the "stop the hate" line when you obviously are one of the worst offenders. If your naive belief that marriage has been around longer than God were true, then why has gay marriage only come up in the past 30 or so years? As for the article on soulforce, surprise surprise a gay "scholar" believes the Bible supports gay marriage. And again, if the Bible supported it how come it hasn't been going on for thousands of years? And it's no surprise that a gay judge is the one who overturned prop8. I still have hope for California, at least the majority of its voting population since they voted for prop8.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Lost and confused by who's standards? Have YOU read the Bible? Some Christians love to spew verses that their church deems the "right" way of thinking but never actually use logic and reason to question anything.

    Take for example the old testament...incredibly violent!! Do you find slavery to be ok? How about stoning of women? Do you think a woman should be forced to marry her rapist...the Bible does (after a dowry is paid of course). Using the Bible to support your agenda and then ignoring the parts that aren't convenient is completely irresponsible.

    Also, gay marriage/unions...haven't just cropped up in the last 30 yrs. Ever read any Greek history, perhaps anything about Native Americans? Gee...that sounds like thousands of years to me.

    Bottom line is, Prop 8 is not constitutional and should have never been put to public vote in the first place. Can I ask you one thing...answer honestly...how does gay marriage affect you?

  57. To respond to Her On Wheels, My standards are taken from the Bible, which I have read and continue to read. I don't spew any verses that my church deems "right". I read the Bible and use logic and reason to decide what is right. I question everything, especially what is spewed at me about the Bible.

    When the new testament refers to someone being sold it is to the position more of a servant than a slave. They were treated differently than slaves in America were. Stoning is what the old testament Jews thought was the proper punishment for certain crimes, but Jesus taught us that stoning isn't right.
    I don't think a woman should marry her rapist and I am curious what verse that is from so I can read it. There a lot of things that Jesus completely reversed from the old testament teachings: having to perform sacrifices (Jesus became the sacrifice for our sins), not eating pork or shellfish, etc. I am Christian and not Jewish so I don't follow all of the rules from the old testament so my "agenda" is to "try" and follow Jesus' teaching the best I can, I am far from perfect, and will be the first one to admit that, so I will do my best to live in a way that reflects his life.

    I haven't heard anything about gay marriage from Greek history or Native Americans, I will have to check that out. If so, then that is something that has been left out of the arguments for gay rights.

    My honest answer to why gay marriage affects me is that it goes against what God outlined as what marriage should be.
    "For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh." Genesis 2:24 (NASB).
    "And he answered and said, "Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning made them MALE and FEMALE, and said 'For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh'? So they are no longer two, but one flesh." Matthew 19:4-6 (NASB). It doesn't say a man and a man or a woman and a woman and that's why I don't support gay marriage.

    Just because I don't agree with gay marriage doesn't mean I hate gay people, but completely the opposite. The time I take offense to gays is when they try to desecrate the marriage covenant to something other than what God designed it to be.

  60. Ahhhhhhhhhhh, the old 'You must hate Christians.' spew. No I don't, especially real Christians. Ones that actually do as commanded and love one another rather than judging which they are specifically told not to do. I don't even 'hate' faux Christians like yourself that wouldn't allow a rabble rousing bum like Jesus past their front doors. I do find you all utterly disgusting however in your eternal quest to force your beliefs on others. And that's all they are, beliefs, because there's not a religion on Earth that can offer concrete proof of anything, not even mine. Then again, I don't feel the need for everyone else to be forced into my mold to bolster my shaky faith. Sucks to be all of you insecure types.

  62. That manicure is lovely! You know, we live in a secular country, meaning we have freedom of religion. Our freedom is what makes this country great, and it is not fair to limit the freedoms of others, even if you don't agree with it.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Sandi, by judging I guess you mean that by me agreeing with the Bible that homosexuality is wrong that I'm judging their actions as being wrong, then I guess you're right. The Bible tells us that we are to help our fellow man/woman and point out to them anything they have done that goes against what God has instructed us to do as to help them, not to make ourselves look better; as I'm sure many people think I'm trying to do. If you love someone enough you will try to help them the best you can. The Bible teaches that we are to look at the plank in our own eye before we point out the speck in someone elses eye, and I try to judge my actions minutely/hourly/daily to see if what I've done agrees with the Bible. Again, I'm not perfect and there are things I've done/do that I don't like and I ask for forgiveness and try to not do them again. But, I am going by my standards not theirs so I can't expect them to follow mine. That was a very long explanation, but I felt it was necessary to explain where I'm coming from. That being said, people are free to do whatever they want and can be gay, straight, whatever; God gave us free will for a reason.

    Everyone was sharing their views on this blog so I shared mine, which I thought was the purpose of this blog. I'm not trying to force my views on anyone, just explain why I feel the way I do. I was asked so I explained. I'm sure a lot of people disagree with me, and that's great. People should form their own opinions on things and not believe what someone else tells them to believe, I'm sure everyone can agree on that.

    So how is it different when you are trying to force your belief that gay marriage is ok on me and everyone else in this country different than me trying to support the beliefs that this country was built upon? The people voted on what they believe and now you want to force what they voted on to be changed to what you believe.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I respect your opinions and beliefs and find it refreshing to hear that you question what you are taught, and as a person that abhors hypocrisy I will stop speaking in an ill manner about your faith. I also appreciate that you self evaluate, as though I don't consider myself a Christian I do the same, I wish more people would.

    I still, however am finding a hard time figuring out how this will affect those who are against it. The bottom line is, though a majority voted for Prop 8, it should have never been put to vote by the general populous (see section 1 of the 14th amendment of the Constitution).

    As for our nation being founded on Christian principles, weren't many of the founding fathers (Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, etc.) not Christians, but Deists (this is not in any way meant as an attack)?

    ReplyDelete
  65. Anonymous, no one is forcing anything upon you. If you don't want to marry a gay person don't, but don't think you have any right to tell anyone else who they have the right to marry. It's none of your business. As far as 'helping' others by shoving your beliefs upon them for their own good, your Taliban brothers understand that necessity well and agree with you completely.

  66. Very well said, anonymous @ August 6, 2010 12:47 AM-
    "You can believe whatever you want morally or religiously, but the laws of our country are not based on the bible or one groups moral beliefs. They are meant to be based on the Constitution and the Bill of Rights..." (edited by me for spelling)
    Rock On!
    And I'll add: Our great nation is comprised of multiple religions, as well as agnostics and atheists due to our commitment to freedom- to base laws solely on the Christian bible is an affront to any and all Americans, and we should eschew any attempt at such.
    Also, to correct earlier remarks made by several posters- God did not write the bible. Men did. God merely dictated. And you remember the outcome when playing the game "telephone", don't you?

    ReplyDelete
  67. heronwheels,
    Thank you, I appreciate that. I question everything, something that drives my spouse crazy, haha. As for the self evaluation, I wouldn't be much of a Christian if I didn't; as that is one of the major principles that Jesus taught.

    Prop 8 was for the definition of "Marriage" as a union between a man and a woman. Since I view marriage as what God designed in the Bible I take issue with marriage also being linked to same sex unions. If same sex couples want to have civil unions or domestic partnerships that's fine with me. But I guess the whole issue with prop 8 is so same sex couples can have the married title and the social, financial, etc. privileges that come with it.

    As for most of the founding fathers being Deists, from what research I've done since you brought this up, it leads me to believe that is correct. I have also read that Jefferson and Franklin, not sure of the others, agreed with Jesus' teachings but not necessarily that he was the messiah. I will have to dig deeper as to why they formed the country with what I deemed to be Christian principles. Did what they read about Jesus influence them on the principles that they formed our country on? We probably will never know. Thank you for sharing that in a very civil manner.

    Sandi,
    That argument also applies to Liberals and many others.

    ReplyDelete
  68. ReaderRita, I agree with you. Even though I vote with my beliefs the laws are made to support the Constitution. Correction, some of the laws are made to support the Constitution; recent laws excluded. ;)
    If God can create the heavens and the earth one would think that he could handle the simple task of insuring that what he was dictating to Man is what they were actually writing down. I just think it's ridiculous to believe that if God went through the trouble of dictating what was to be in the Bible that he wouldn't insure that the end result wasn't EXACTLY what he wanted.

  70. This is not about hate. I have no issue with homosexuals being seen as legal partners, giving them the same rights as married people. When it comes down to it, it is about what children learn in school. Teachers should not be telling children homosexuality is okay, because the parents might not agree with that. That is an infringement of the parents rights. Sexual orientation a very personal issue, and should not be taught in public schools like that.

    ReplyDelete
  71. My personal beliefs aside, this was a vote brought to We The People. The PEOPLE have a right (in the true sense of the word) to determine our future as a state and as a nation. We live in a democracy and the federal government left it up to us as states to determine our stance on this subject. When We The People put it to a fair vote and determine this bill will pass, what right does ONE person have to over rule us? This is not a dictatorship! What's next? What vote will the government take away next? Maybe one that's important to another group? Heck maybe our next vote for governor or president will be decided for us? I know that the followers of a nail art blog might not be the most politically aware but I can't let this point go unnoticed. And if you live in another state did you know that YOUR state has the same right to vote on this matter? Are you calling your governor to let him or her know you want this on YOUR ballot? Do you know that even same sex marriages in CA are not recognize federally? Yep that means your CA tax return will be filed married and your federal single.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Chuckie-I take huge offense to your comment that 'followers of a nail art blog might not be the most politically aware'. Because we are groomed, therefore we are stupid and unaware? Hardly.

    Furthermore, the issue of same-sex marriage isn't even something that should have been brought to a vote to begin with. 'Normal' marriages never have been voted on, they're instilled as a basic civil right. Humans are humans, humans love other humans, why should homosexuals be discriminated against on the basis of their sexual orientation?

    When a same-sex couple can't have the same basic rights that a man/woman couple have (hospital visitation, joint insurance, decisions on the estate left behind by a deceased partner, etc.), something is wrong with our world.

  74. I think you missed the point entirely... Anyway, you never said if you had written to your Senator and Governor about SSM in your state or the federal government the DOESN'T acknowledge ANY form of gay marriage or civil unions. If you want it to be voted on or not doesn't matter. That's how it works. Painting your nails does nothing for the cause unless say you paint nails for a living and donated a portion of your rainbow nail profits to organizations to help fight your battle where it needs to be fought. Instead, everyone just wants to jump all over people who oppose (Hate and opposed are two different things FYI) them and "hope" for "change". Left, right, gay straight practice what you preach. If you preach tolerance, don't call someone ignorant or a terrorist if they have differing view points. If you preach to change the laws/world go out there and DO SOMETHING. That's the point here. Take the time to think about it and take actions and tell YOUR government what you want. They need to be held accountable for their actions. If we continue to let these things go unnoticed we'll soon be living in the Republic of USA. OyVey!

Civil rights should NEVER be a matter of majority rules. If they were, women still wouldn't be allowed to vote and people of color would still be chattels. Likewise, tolerance of the beliefs of others does not include letting them trying to turn those beliefs into laws that will be forced on others.

  76. I think it's pathetic that people are freaking out and going back and forth about this. It's a freaking blog about nails ( a very good one- love your designs), and its getting all political... Talk about this where someone cares.

  77. I know I'm late to the party on this one... But I absolutely love this design!!! And that is all I will say as I've seen it turned into a huge deal... But these are awesome nails and I wish more ppl would understand that times are ever changing and we have to change with it. :). LOOVE THESE!
