Ilmarinen: ampoliros: Unoriginal_Username: ampoliros: Unless you're playing CoD, you really don't hear as much bad-mouthing of gays as you used to. It's almost as if the closet needs to be filled by somebody. When the homosexuals started coming out, the homophobes were sucked in.

So what happens when the homophobes finally admit it and come out?

Haven't you heard? The reason progressive ideas become mainstream is that those who hold the old ideas die out. My guess is that they will never come out and their corpses will continue to fill the void. Didn't you see Orson Scott Cards statement that basically says, "You won, now leave me alone to wallow in my hatred and defeat."

It's what the Fark homophobes already seem to be doing today, since I don't see any in this thread.


They are all down in the trans thread. And really it is amazing how far LGBT rights have come over years.

SpikeStrip: we're slowly but surely creeping out of the stone age


I don't know. I bet, in the stone age, if you wanted to fark another consenting adult caveman, you'd probably get less grief about it than if you wanted to fark a cavewoman, who would probably already be spoken for.

NkThrasher: I'd assume that such an act would require an amazingly good reason and that most cases where one would exist are handled before it gets to that point.


So it would seem. From what I can tell, if it were used for anything short of unimaginably weird and universe-altering circumstances, it'd only delay things long enough for Parliament to write up the "Don't Let The Door Hit Your Formerly Royal Arse On The Way Out, Liz" Act. Of course, monarchs can always get their jollies by proroguing various ex-colonial parliaments, which I think they ought to do for shiats and giggles more often. "Nice legislature you've got here, St. Kitts and Nevis! Oops, I accidentally declare it completely dissolved using the power to do so that, for some reason, I have! Ha ha, suck it!"

With Westboro Baptist's main troll banned from the UK, looks like emigration for fine upstanding Republicans to English speaking countries is getting less possible. Of course there's always Uganda.

That woman must have whole warehouses of just shoes... hats... clothes... my god.


According to Anthony Bourdain, she also had her wardrobe flown with her in a separate plane, one of which, an old one, is now serving duty carrying passengers in the Congo.

Looks like we can upgrade another light pink to dark pink.

All hail the rainbow-coloured, bedazzled, gay rights agenda steamroller!

Digitalstrange: nekom:

Cheers to those in the UK who enjoy their new-found equality./now come on PA.  Our AG not defending our version of DOMA is a good start.

Progressive or just a realist? Either is OK just curious which. Would be stupid to waste funds defending something already held unconstitutional but I could see some conservative AG's doing so anyway.


I think she just saw the writing on the wall.  Even a LOT of people on the far right are beginning to realize that it's a sinking ship for them.

My theory of how this is happening:  Gay people exist.  But they have existed, well probably since humans existed.  The difference now is that there are so many "Out", I have a gay relative as does my wife.  For so many people like me, it's no longer an abstract concept "can gays marry?"  It's much more personal, the question is "Should my aunt or her uncle be able to marry their partners, each of whom have been together for longer than the sum total to date of my two straight marriages?"  It's a tidal wave of change, and I'm happy to see it.  I'd like to think I'd be pretty open minded even if I didn't have gay relatives, last I checked nobody is being forced to gay marry turtles yet.

Alternate theory:  There are so many problems in this stupid country, nobody cares if others want to be gay.  Unemployment, war, the list of threats to the USA is a long one, and I don't think gays even make the extended cut.

oldfarthenry: She kinda already did this in Canuckistan - ten years ago!
(Thank God she just rubber-stamps any paper given to her.)


And her Governor-General granted Royal Assent to same-sex marriage in New Zealand 3 months ago (marriages don't begin until next month though... the sheep are quite concerned about what the next step after gay marriage is...)

Oh yes, those can be vile as hell. I didn't feel like touching that one today.

It is remarkable. For instance, have you seen what Spain - catholic though it may be - has done since the turn of the century? The world is becoming a gayer place.

Everyone figures out that you don't have to agree with what other people do (within the law and so long as they are not hurting others) provided you leave them the fark alone when they do it and aren't a jerk about it.

 Then the people who think you're terrible person unless you agree with everyone, get sucked into the closet.

I hope I live long enough to see the map with only one country left holding out. Then they can replace Best Korea as the freak of the family.

That's a worthwhile dream, No one should be persecuted for who they love or who they are.

Yea, I'm very disappointed in Fark today I mean really.

That's out of date (obviously, it says 2009).  New Zealand has gay marriage.

So glad I can stop being ashamed that we wimped out with "civil unions" previously, which is the modern version of counting blacks as 3/8 of a person.  Although because we don't have that ridiculous federal thing, I think the only difference in NZ was gay couples couldn't adopt (but single gay people could... wtf).
