It seems we are a nation that is either intolerant of differences or generally doesn’t care at all.
Croatia had to vote today on a referendum whether it will be put into our constitution that marriage is a union between a man and a woman.
So, after today, we are going to have an additional clause in it, saying exactly that.
To think that I live among smart, tolerant people was obviously a serious judgment error on my part. Because it seems 65% of voters today think it’s okay to limit the right to marriage. That is, 65% of the 38% of people who actually care one way or the other. As that was the percentage of voters today – 38%.
My heart aches knowing that I live in a country where this can happen and no one can do anything about it (too many idiotic things allowed, leading to such a stupid outcome).
The most incredible thing is that none of the arguments why limiting marriage would be ok is actually based in logic, Catholic religion or common human decency. But the other side kept bringing those up like it were, and now it seems to have worked.
I do wish I lived someplace else where things like this don’t happen and people actually listen to common sense. Aren’t hypocritical. Mean. Or just plain stupid.
Still, it hurts. And I feel ashamed.
So, if anyone has a job offer anywhere that isn’t Croatia, I would be more than willing to consider it.
