The California Supreme Court decision riles Melissa Etheridge, and one critic who got married under the wire.
From Melissa Etheridge to Perez Hilton, thoughts ranged from disappointment to a determination to keep fighting for gay rights.
"I didn’t do enough. None of us did. We were so confident that we were right, that we failed to really listen to what the other side had to say. It’s only by really hearing their case, that we can most effectively make our own case."
"It feels so good to have a legal bond now that no other gay or lesbian taxpayers in this state will be allowed to have one. It’s like getting only half-stabbed to death."
"People feel disappointed but they don’t think it’s unexpected … There’s a lot of work to be done — and the general tenor is that people are ready to do it."
