tinfoil-hat maggie: They are all down in the trans thread.


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

And really it is amazing how far LGBT rights have come over years.

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.

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.

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.


Does that mean Tom Cruise is going to have to start playing Call of Duty with his new friends?

nekom: You know I just realized today that the entire concept of a legal same sex marriage is really still in its infancy.  Netherlands in 2001 was the first, now there are over a dozen and 1/5 of the states here.  Don't get me wrong, I'd like to see it legal EVERYWHERE right NOW, but that is a remarkable amount of progress in a short time.

but then again.. gay relationships didn't exactly start in 2001 so you figure once marriage gets commonly accepted as a social/civil issue in a few modern countries the rest aren't too far behind.
