Inspired by Robert Indiana’s LOVE sculpture, I originally designed it as donation-fundraiser for the “No On 8″ campaign. Due to its fluid Design meaning and implications, it can be universally used to express your intolerance to any form of “Hate” (H8).
If you are interested in purchasing t-shirts, bags, hats, buttons, etc. with the NOH8 Design, I have set up a storefront with the NOH8 product line over at:
There is still lots of talk about this proposition. But if it comes down to what is right, I think it’s rather simple. It can be seen in a piece of document written over 200 years ago which states the following:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.1
Though one might find themselves having mixed feelings of what the above should be or should not be interpreted as, they fall back on religious views2. But to believe that this has arguable weight, and is enough to amend the State Constitution (or The Constition “period”) is in itself an erred way of thought and process.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion…
And if that is not enough, amending the Constitution with Proposition 8 makes us question if those self-evident “truths” (that the United States were founded and built upon) are still real or not. Personally, I know they are. Hence, my belief and faith in those “unalienable Rights” led me to find that Proposition 8 is unconstitutional and therefore, deserved my vote against it (“No on 8″).
