Boo hoo. Is it me or did the Prop 8 supporters think that their move to revoke civil rights wouldn't meet with a little disapproval?

I want all their mugs shown far and wide. And yes, so we can spit in their faces when we see them.

Tired of them whining

"Boo hoo... revoke civil rights" it's not a civil rights issue. Gay's can marry. They just can't marry someone of the same sex. They can marry though. It's a behavior choice. We regulate behavior all the time. We don't allow NAMBLA to marry boys, we don't allow polygamy and the PEOPLE HAVE VOTED. Deal with it!!!

"It's a choice. It's a choice!"

I've heard this so many times. It's like choosing what color hair you naturally have or the color of your eyes. Sure, you can dye your hair or wear colored contacts, but it doesn't change what nature gave you. Just like straight people don't entertain the thought of same-sex marriage (or "chose" to be straight), neither do gays consider the thought of straight marriage (or "chose" to be gay).

The difference is, straight people get to choose to marry the one you love. Gays and lesbians don't. And that's not equality, something that's guaranteed in this country. Oh, and another guarantee? Protection from mob majority rule (we're a Republic, not a pure democracy. Look it up.). Hence, the purpose of the courts.

So boo hoo, a tiny majority of people have voted to historically strip a minority's rights away and may be overruled. Thankfully, this country is working and is examining the legality of this brutal act.

Bigots, like vampires, hate the sunshine. 'Nuff said.


pedophilia isn't a choice either. so what?

state-sanctioned marriage should not be about the sexual or emotional fulfillment of two partners. you can do that yourself without a license from the state. it should be about creating legal obligations and benefits that provide stability for the next generation. gay marriage doesn't do that in any way. it simply distracts from the real purpose of marriage and turns it into an institution meant to provide tax benefits while satisfying one's personal lusts.

What does pedophilia have to do with two legal adults wanting to benefit society by being in a monogamous relationship that could help raise future generations? I need to know how you made this connection. I want to know why discussing marriage equality made you think of adults taking advantage of legal minors?

Please explain yourself.


Judge Walker is a publicity hound. His rulings will be designed to grab headlines and catch people off guard. Walker is not only an egomaniac, but also a bully.

Crazy religious bigots, you deserve all of the negativity that you have coming to you. You've facilitated transphobia, homophobia, and sexism through your precious proposition 8, and you will pay. It will cost you your pathetic religion. Proposition 8 is like the Titanic immediately after it hit an iceberg, and your religion is tethered too it!

Prop H8 affects MY future in the sense that once DOMA falls I can get the legal benefits afforded every married couple in America.
I am not looking to do anything more than what the 14th Amendment allows:

Section 1.
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.
No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

No more, no less
