I wanted to post this yesterday but didn't manage to. Ew.  
Reposting from at least three people on my FL, whom I should thank for posting in the first place because of course this didn't make the news here, or not that I know of.

You know when you read stuff that makes you lose a good deal of faith in humanity?

Sonoma County CA separates elderly gay couple and sells their home, possessions.

I positively teared up while reading it. Seriously, this is the 21st century, but I guess it isn't enough. And I know that it has been posted a bunch of times already but the more you see it around, the best it is. Also, here is a petition for the story to be printed in what I think is the county's Democratic paper? I'd say consider signing it if you haven't already. Jesus. At least reading the comments on that page makes you partly re-gain the faith in humanity you lost while reading the article, but still, it's insane.

I saw this in zelda_zee's journal. It made me cry, too. Horrible.

Yeah I saw it at hers and at two other people's, and I really wanted to re-post it. I cried too, fuck. ;_;

This just makes me sick to my stomach.

On tracy's lj there's a bit of new info. Nowhere near enough, but something.

*goes back to puke on the world*
