    We're not making up some special new word just so you can stop feeling icky about it. Like racists when schools were integrated, get over it.

    You have serious homophobic issues you need to deal with. I suggest you start now. We're not going away.
    I'll never understand these people who are so afraid of a word & acting like their own marriage is threatened or diminished in some way.

    And where should I go? I can't escape it, I can't change my line of thinking and it's not fun if people have nothing better to do than constantly bring it up . I had people at work asking me about it and it's none of their business

    Why do heterosexuals need to call it marriage. I don't care what the hell you call it as long as it is equal for everyone. Are you afriad your spouse will leave you and declare they are gay once it is legal?

    And there is the problem stated very clearly. It must suck to go through life with such a narrow vision and not be open to accepting change.

    oh, so now you're the victim? you can't 'escape' the gays and their demands for equal rights so what is a poor little homophobe like you supposed to do? who's looking out for you?
    uh.... seriously, do you not realise that you are the one with the problem here? and yes, yes you can change your line of thinking. starting out by getting some pychological help to deal with your deep-rooted issues with homosexuality (i remember the story about your aunt and all that).


    i think this is great. i hope it makes it up to the supreme court (and that they do the right thing, of course). further proof that in the US, gay marriage will only ever be legal if there's a scotus ruling. that was the only way to get desegregation, the only way to get abortion, and the only way gays will get equal rights. you cannot have people voting on minority and/or civil rights issues. blacks would still be riding on the back of the bus in southern states if they'd made it a voting issue. it doesn't make it undemocratic because democracy does not mean majority rule on every single issue. as with every other political body, there has to be a system of checks and balances in place and one of those is a court system that is there to protect minorities from tyranny of the majority.

    You could always hang yourself, jump off a building, slit your wrists, overdose on pills, set yourself on fire, drown yourself in a lake, shoot yourself in the head, freeze to death, suffocate yourself.

    You have so many options open to you.

    FFS. I hate it when people use that ridiculous 'argument'! Luckily I don't have anyone on my Facebook who thinks like that (or actually admits they think like that) I'd be deleting them from my list!

    homophobes are always saying shit like this, they always have to mention sex with their anti-gay arguments and make it dirty like that when being gay is so much more than just sex w/ a member of your own gender. its everything else that everyone else lives,

    its just so silly and shows their own ignorance.

    Anti-gay freaks think about gay sex more than gays do. They're freaking obsessed with it. It's bizarre.

    There is no need to even get SCOTUS involved. SCOTUS doesn't make law, they interpret the constitution and existing law.

    Just like the landmark 1964 Civil Rights act, what is needed here is legislation. Which must be enacted by the executive branch (like LBJ did on civil rights) working with the legislative branch. Then SCOTUS can enforce such laws.

    SCOTUS ruled on cases like Brown vs. Board of Ed, but until there was a federal law ensuring equal treatment, there was no real civil rights progress.

    Same thing here. The laws must be changed, and that falls to Congress.


    .....and Mella- seek help. I think you may be a repressed gay person, they way it bothers you so much suggests some self loathing.

    they are and they're always like "well i would be fine with it if they didn't shove it in your face all the time" and its like HELLO! everywhere you look is hetero sex in your face and by that i mean women as sex objects for men. the whole premise of modern-day advertising is woman as sex objects selling shit to men. its sick, as the feminist that i am. sick sick sick world.

    Yes, but it's been declared unconstitutional and will go to the SCOTUS as a result. Courts can strike down laws, such as DOMA and DADT.

    It happened on the state level, and now it's going to the federal.

    It's not fun for people when they're denied basic human rights either. And it has to be brought up & it WILL be brought up until it's changed.

    Yes, but until there is no DOMA, this will continue. SCOTUS has never ruled that sexual orientation is a protected class (which is part of the problem). If congress would ditch DOMA, there would be complete protection.

    There's a case that may test SCOTUS on DOMA before the CA one, it's out of MA, regarding a Federal judge who declared DOMA unconstitutional.

    BTW- I don't know how much help Kagan is going to be on this issue- she's worked against the repeal of DOMA and DADT in the past. I hope she was just 'doing what she was told' and will do the opposite on the court.

    erm.. the SCOTUS can strike down DOMA. That's what it's heading to. There are multiple suits headed that way.

    Whether the SCOTUS, filled with right wing losers and catholics, actually adheres to the letter of the constitution when giving their verdict is another matter.
