cman: susansto-helit: cman: kingoomieiii: gilgigamesh: cman:
It is supposed to be a wedding, not a trip down to Walmart, which is how the (forgive me if I mess up the terminology) brides are dressed up as. Where are the white gowns?

Well will you listen to her?

Rowrr. Kitty's got claws. PFT! PFT!

What cman might look like

LOL

Come on, even you have gotta admit that they should be better dressed for a wedding. Its the most important day of their life, and looking good while you are at it is a prerequisite

My brother and sis-in-law got married in casual attire in a courthouse. Both outfits have been worn again. You can't really do that with a wedding dress.

Weddings are supposed to be special, and these people were the first homosexuals in NY to get married. They are part of history. Forgive me if I sound old fashion, but when I picture gay weddings, I want to see it in a church in proper gowns. That is how you stick it to the haters.


Agreed. With both of you.

They could have, at a minimum, gone with business casual. But an overly elaborate gown that will be worn once and then locked up in a trunk for years might be overdoing it.

Love it. One step closer to full equality under the law.

Let's get rid of DOMA now!
 
2012-08-02 02:38:13 PM  

gilgigamesh: OK, am I the only one who gets all teary-eyed at pictures of old gay couples?


Nope.

I think it's because you realize they have been waiting all their life to finally have the rights that everyone else does and then you get sad that they had to wait so long. Combine that with the happiness you feel for them and it hits you in the heart big time.

THIS

I remember asking my parents why people used to think "coloreds" shouldn't marry whites.

Kids being born now will be asking why haters didn't want their two favorite aunts to get married and be happy.

I'm not even gay and this brings a tear to my eye.

I give you 10 maybe 15 years before you're a conservative. Only young people are that liberal and angry.


Dude, I'm not angry, and I'm only liberal with regards to civil-rights and personal freedom. By all means I'm fiscally conservative; the problem is that the GOP isn't.
You're one of the dumb folks that walks around spouting off "If you're not a democrat when you are young you have no heart and if you're not a Republican when you are old you have no brain" aren't you?

You are dead wrong. Injustice makes liberals angry and there's a lot of injustice out there.


Okay, actually I am angry about this. I should have clarified, I'm not angry in general, I'm acutely angry.

DeaH: gilgigamesh: OK, am I the only one who gets all teary-eyed at pictures of old gay couples?

I don't know what it is. There's something so tender and moving about it. I guess when I see an old gay couple I have this whole narrative in my head that they lived their whole lives as a lie, before finally finding true love in the final act. It's so storybook.

Scuse me... *SOB*

You're not alone. Love that endures always gets me. But love that endures when the world is against it, as it was for most of these people's lives? Yeah, that makes me a big, soppy mess. And the fact that they finally lived long enough that they can come out in the sun and show us? It makes me equally sad that they had to hide for so long, and glad that, at last, we're doing what we always should have been doing.


One of the few reasons I still consider myself catholic was when I moved to Chicago, I discovered after I got there That I was living in the city's "gay" neighborhood (Lakeview, but only for gay men oddly enough, the lesbians had their own enclave up in Andersonville) which was how I ended up at a mass at the local massive old stone church which had been marked in the schedule as the "AGLO" mass. It turned out that meant, "The Archbishop's Gay and Lesbian Outreach mass" (which explained why the choir was FAB-ulous) and at that mass I heard something I had never heard before in my 30 years as a practicing Roman Catholic: an openly gay priest preaching form the pulpit with Cardinal George's explcit approval, telling a church full of gay men that the greatest possible sin they could commit was not loving those people God has placed upon this earth for them to love. Even as a straight man, that message brought me to tears for its smple truth, and I've held on to that moment as I've heard all the idiotic pronouncements and stupid homophobia spewing from the Church's hiearchy. It reminds me that they aren't ALL like that, and some of them really do get it.

As with other homosexual threads that I post in, I try to remind everyone about the T in LGBT.


Yes, we are getting homosexual equality, but transgender equality is something that is pushed to the end of the line. Please, remember that in this struggle, it is not just about the homosexual community; it is also about giving equal rights and treatment and giving transgendered people dignity.

gilgigamesh: I can point you to a recent study where ~40% of Mississippi republicans STILL think interracial marriage should be illegal.

I can assure you those types will still be around for your grandkids to marvel at.


I bet their heads explode at the idea of an interracial gay couple.

Hopefully we'll have marriage equality in Washington State in less than 100 days.

I'm going to do my part to make it happen.

And hopefully the Supreme Court will refuse to hear the Prop 8 appeal and California will have it too.

I guess my workplace would not be suitable for work, because some of my coworkers are gay and have brought in their spouses.

Dammit. Guess I'll stay straight then.


No, I mean it's REALLY weird, but they are normal loving couples that happen to share the same dangly bits, figuratively and literally ;)

Don't worry, they'll understand. Your grandchildren's leaders will likely be saying something like this:

"Here was a country that had everything, absolutely everything, and now, 20 years later, is what? The world's biggest leper colony. Why? Godlessness. Let me say that again: Godlessness. It wasn't the war they started. It wasn't the plague they created. It was judgement. No-one escapes their past. No-one escapes judgment. You think he's not up there? You think he's not watching over this country? How else can you explain it? He tested us and we came through. We did what we had to do. Islington. Enfield. I was there. I saw it all. Immigrants, Muslims, homosexuals, terrorists, disease ridden degenerates. They had to go. Strength through unity, unity through faith. I'm a God-fearing Englishman and I am goddamn proud of it!"

I don't think they will. I agree that they love precedent-setting cases, but I think they'll be more likely to take up the case of DOMA, strike down Section 3, and then wait for another lawsuit from somebody who is in a civil union but isn't married to claim that the state is violating equal protection.

That is possible. But, in all reality, I really cannot see them not taking this case. You really think that members of SCOTUS are gonna let homosexual marriage pass without any sort of them putting their stamp on it? Sure, Kennedy will probably come to our side, but there are four conservative justices who may want to have a say in this case.

cman: Jesus Christ, although I am happy for them, arent homosexuals usually known for having style?

Is it somehow not applicable to New York homosexuals? Wow that attire is horrible


I think it was people just wanted to get it done before an injunction, hold, repeal, etc. At least for the first groups getting married.
 
2012-08-02 03:07:40 PM  

hubiestubert: In Mass, you know what happened after marriage equality happened?

People got married. They got married, they bought houses together, they were already adopting kids, they already had dogs and cats together, they registered for their showers and wedding parties, they booked honeymoons, they booked halls for their weddings, and people got the f*ck over it, and oddly enough, church attendance got boosted in those ministries that supported marriage equality.

If you don't want to have same sex weddings in YOUR churches, go for it. I fully support you in that. That's your church, that's your business, but maybe you should extend the same courtesy to others...


You know I had you favorited for awhile, what can I say, I like the way you think. And how the hell did I not know you're up in Franklin County? (Chicopee here)

On this subject, I couldn't agree more

You don't remember that Irish mother who died from an allergic reaction from humping a dog? Note that they have a weak, half-assed form of gay marriage in Ireland, which explains why she was sick enough to have sex with an animal, but still kept it relatively heterosexual.

That's what gets to me, too. A lot of them have been together so long, had to make so many excuses, and now they can finally have the rest of the world acknowledge that they have a true, loving relationship.

I also love that elderly gay couples fly in the face of bigoted stereotypes that reduce homosexuality to just sex. It may seem that way if you're in the closet, but it's really about love and companionship.
