You all laughed and mocked those of us with man-boobs for years. WHO'S LAUGHING NOW?

So wait, if Obama is reelected, it's assured that one of the conservative justices will retire and then he'll appoint a liberal one and do an executive order allowing gay marriages in the United States of America, and so when challenged in the supreme court, the challenge will fail and gay marriage will be allowed...

Well, that seals the deal, voting for Obama!

/not gay

olddeegee: I've been surprised by how many people don't see the SCOTUS implications no matter who wins. It could decide our next 20 years or more.


Unless I'm missing something, the article is based on the faulty premise that Obama will get to replace a conservative justice with a liberal one. The oldest justice right now is Ginsburg, so even if Obama names her replacement the court will still be 5-4 conservative. A conservative would have to retire in addition, but Scalia and Kennedy so far don't show any signs of stepping down within the next four years.

So not only does Obama have to win, Cuomo or Hillary or whoever have to win in 2016 to have a progressive Supreme Court.

'Cause I kind of have a girl crush on Emma Watson.


I would gladly gay marry you.

FreakyBunny: Was Canada's process on this as nasty as ours is? I mean did you guys have a bunch of religious f*ckwits with enough power to make things this stupidly difficult?

Not even close. There were a few protests, but Prime Minister Chretien basically said "We want to do this thing the gay marriages, so to do that we need to go to the Canada Supremes to get the opinions for the decision so that will be made the government OK with making the law to make the gays and lesbians getting their marriages in Canada".


Bravo. I even read that in Chretien's voice.

/Me, pepper I put it on my plate.

Obama simply stated his personal position. It's Mitt who has signed the National Organization for Marriage pledge promising to implement a Constitutional Amendment for his particular definition of marriage, superseding the states who have voted for gay marriage.

Why does Mitt hate State's Rights?

Trolling is profitable for FARK, fun for the trolls, and enjoyable for the people that hate on the trolls - because it allows them to feel better about themselves.

It's a sick twisted web of sadomasochism, greed, and cynicism. Welcome to FARK.

So the right only wants smaller govt when it helps them out, for everyone else that want an oppressive govt. hmmm
 
2012-05-11 11:07:13 AM  
So, since I am already married, do both of us have to get gay married, or only one? Because I am totally down with my wife marrying Mila Kunis, or Zoe Saldana. That is a gay marriage I could get behind!

KellyX: So wait, if Obama is reelected, it's assured that one of the conservative justices will retire


Scalia is 76 and looks like he's going to have a heart attack at any moment. And if he goes, Clarence Thomas will have to retire, because how else will he know what opinion to have?
 
2012-05-11 11:07:36 AM  
Of all the things I would pick for conservatives to worry about with a liberal supreme court, gay marriage isn't even in the top 20.
 
2012-05-11 11:07:40 AM  
the biblical view that God ordained marriage as solely between a man and woman

For every biblical example you name of a marriage that was solely between one man and one woman I can name you five that were between one man and a various collections of sisters, multiple women, concubines, slaves, or rape victims.

I refuse to click on TownHall. Shame on the mods for continuing to support this tin foil hatter.
 
2012-05-11 11:08:48 AM  
I wonder if there really are people out there who think they will be forced to gay marry? I know one of my co-workers is gay, and no one is forcing me to gay-tech-write.
 
2012-05-11 11:09:11 AM  

Rincewind53: If I get forced to gay marry Ryan Gosling I am totally cool with this.


You just want a spouse who knows when to shut up, right?
 
2012-05-11 11:09:56 AM  
On the plus side, men with really really small penises will be in demand again.
 
2012-05-11 11:10:10 AM  
If I'm forced to gay marry, can I get a sex change instead? I'd rather spend my days scissoring with some butch biker girl than have to fence someone else's meat sword.

Vodka Zombie: What exactly IS being forced on America?

I mean, right now, conservative christian bigotry is being forced on us all. And, since we're not a theocracy, we really do need to remove that.



Goddammit SO MUCH THIS.

Why do evangelical Christians hate freedom and American values?

Teh Bible is full of slaves so it's all good.

Rapmaster2000: Everybody has to choose a partner to gay marry by January, 1 2013.


Hmmmmm. Joan Jett or Neko Case? I think Neko would be a better life partner, but Joan is so damn hot. Decisions, decisions.

Have you seen Thomas lately? The guy has gained 150 lbs in the last few years.

JusticeandIndependence: Splinshints: Has George Will been abducted by aliens?

I think even he has gone off the deep end after his railings about Obama taking credit for OBL. I never disagreed with him more.


George Will can get caught up in the lunacy from time to time, but he's at least usually reasonably rational about things.

I mean, I guess my point is that when it's something like Townhall or WND or Hot Air, I'm just going to dismiss the link without even clicking it because history has shown again and again that they're just disgusting, vile lying bags of ass and there is never any valid, intelligent reason to read anything posted to any of those sites.

But whether I agree with the premise or not, at least I'd be willing to read a George Will piece. I mean, I click LGF stuff now that they've stopped being completely insane and virulently racist. Why can't we leave things like Breitbart and WND for the occasional "haha look at the crazy people" laugh fests and stick to stuff that's not completely retarded as the everyday standard?

There's still smart conservative republican opinion out there. I know it's waned significantly in the last ten to fifteen years as the derp has been turned up over and over again and insanity like the tea party has become more of the norm for republicanism, but it would still be nice if every now and then if someone would submit and a mod would green some smart conservative piece.

I mean, c'mon. You write a book whining about the state of the American media and how it's just a stupid dog and pony show feeding people crap because it's what makes money, then you turn your website into exactly what your book lambasted. I know Fark isn't supposed to be the media, but, like the Daily Show, whether it likes it or not it is positioned in a way that makes it possible to be both a source of humor AND substantive discussion at the same time.

Too bad, unlike the Daily Show, Drew and his crew have decided to just cash in on the easy train to shiat town....

Ew. I guess he has to vote with Scalia on what to eat, too.
 
2012-05-11 11:14:09 AM  
Obama JUST got done saying he was leaving decisions regarding gay marriage up to the states. It was my understanding that he is not interested in pursuing any legislation regardless.

/all marriage should be illegal

He has one path to victory -- the Supreme Court.
and so it is written and so it shall be!
 
2012-05-11 11:20:45 AM  
Liberals make me sick. Let's go back to traditional marriage as defined by the bible, as a marriage consisting of one man, his many wives, and sexual access to his wive's maid servants. If you don't agree with this, you must think you know better than God and the bible.

Don't know if he has a choice. Marital status impacts tax filings, Social Security benefits and probably more federal laws.

GhostFish: If you're so bothered by having to put up with the happiness of other people you don't like, you're probably just an asshole.

Your religion or creed or whatever is immaterial. You're simply just an asshole.


People forget that the US was founded by Puritans, and in many ways is still a Puritan country.

A Puritan, of course, is a person who is deathly afraid that somebody, somewhere is having fun.

Elections are not about who has the better ideas. Understand that and realize why we never talk about policy positions here. All there is to talk about is "my team versus your team". You're attacking this site for something endemic in the entire democratic system. If I were you I would apologize, we should be so lucky to have such a wonderful forum upon which to express our opinions. I am very thankful to Drew and the entire Fark staff and never take it for granted.

If I have to get gay married, I call the actor that plays Lancel Lannister in GoT, that is one pretty mother farker.
 
2012-05-11 11:31:24 AM  
Ok so this means we will have Zac Efron being forced to marry Taylor Lautner to create beautiful alpaca muscle children. Similarly Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans will be forced to marry and through gay sex produce a superpatriotic demigod who wields a hammer.

I'm not sure who Tom Hiddleston is going to be forced to marry. The guy who played magneto most recently?
 
2012-05-11 11:31:24 AM  
I hope we get a random lottery of who we have to same-sex marry. That would be kinda exciting and interesting.
