I've seen your daughter. I'm not saying she's not attractive, but three goats is a little much to ask. Forget about the cow.

tulax: AG is a dingleberry.  He may think the one man, one woman law is unconstitutional (I do, too) but he needs to defend it.  The best way to get it overturned is to fight it up to the NMSC and let them take a crack at it.  If he won't defend it, the issue won't get decided for years, and then there is the risk that all of the couples that took advantage of this "gap" get their lives shredded apart.


That's not true.

Courts use thingamajigs called precedent to figure out WAT DO.  Since a bunch of other courts including SCOTUS have said "no, stop it, no1curr", then any laws that try to force a "1 peen + 1 vag for Jeebus" shackaround are unlawful.

The AG knows it's a waste o' cash and time.  He's got other things to do, like dress up like Batman and fight crime.

PerilousApricot: unyon: Theaetetus: New Mexico statute 40-1: Marriage is contemplated by the law as a civil contract, for which the consent of the contracting parties, capable in law of contracting, is essential.

... and, that's it. Lolz.

Interestingly, the only place where gender shows up in the statutes is regarding minors, specifying that no person under age can marry unless "he" obtains the consent of "his" parent or guardian.

Like the one line in the article, you've made the error that gender=sex.

EngineerAU: unyon: Like the one line in the article, you've made the error that gender=sex.

Are you one of those people who also gets upset when a reporter doesn't get the exact model number of a gun right when reporting on a mass shooting? Yes, gender and sex can be different but for most of society and the law, there's no difference.

As for a sex/gender neutral singular pronoun, extending the use of 'their' in include singular situations seems to be where we are headed rather than creating a new word.


If by "the way we are headed", you mean in near-universal use since before Shakespeare, then yes, we may be headed that way.

roc6783: cynicalminion: my cynical side was the part that thought that "it obtains the consent of its parent or guardian" would in fact be HILARIOUS if it showed up in legislation.

It obtains the consent, then it puts the lotion on its skin.


this is kind of what i meant about the terminology.  there are enough negative connotations to using the neuter singular pronoun in english, but we do have one, and it (no pun intended) led to the "he-shes" and other terms that gave alot of the transgender spectrum of folks out there alot of hardship. but to be fair, a cactus would not be able to provide the consent of its parent or guardian, and thus would make MARRIAGE to it not an option.  take it home and molest it on your own time, sparky.

Man, the article made me happy but the comments saddened me because it made me realize how low the quality of trolling has got around here. This is from billpeck. Pay attention, because this is a masterpiece:

"Men and women (not gay), who want to enjoy a respectful joining for life, need to come up with a replacement for the word marriage so gays can have and enjoy their own method of joining (living together). The new word will specify naturally born man and woman as those being joined by the new term. The new term will be something like "Man and Woman Marriage". Straight men and women do not want to be confused with those gays that are not joined as man and woman. This appears to be a way to satisfy both groups and still retain distinct identity of each group.

Just to clear the air, if you are gay, we don't care how you live your life and we don't care who you live with; the fact is that you stole a very sacred word from the straight people, marriage, and you did it for a greedy reason. Your fight for benefits was and is greatly enhanced by the word marriage. Straight people fought hard and long for their benefits and you didn't have to fight at all; the term "civil union", which is what you really are, suits you folks fine except you would have to fight for benefits. The Supreme Court doesn't even realize just how they screwed things up; and, they won't until it is too late.

Some of you defend the joining by saying there is no male or female in the marriage; it is just two friends for life. Hmmmm sounds a little dull without real sex. Overall, gays have the advantage; when someone asks who is the she or he, you can change gender at will and just say he, she or it. We straight folks don't have that chameleon capability. This whole change in events may lead to legal prostitution; we could, once again, see long lines, of men. Like the old movie lines of past years. WOW, sounds great. There is something for women in this also; those of you that are bored housewives could get a good job and become one of the household bread winners.

The elimination of DOMA is also a way for foreign people to get green cards for entry into the United States of America; once in the United States the foreigner can do as they please. This will be the largest money making scheme and scam program to hit America since the Constitution of The United States; and, the Congress and the Supreme Court made it possible."

And seriously, who farking cares? I am a straight male, and though i don't understand gay men, i have nothing against them. They are humans, and have the same right to happiness, marriage, the exact same things that hetro couples do. It affects my life not one iota if a man marries a man in my state, or a woman to a woman. I don't know them, and it has 0-affect on my life at all. Why should i give i shiat? I don't. And even if i DID know them, i still wouldn't care. They don't give a fark about my life, or how i choose to lead it..why should it be my business what they do with theirs? Its not. Mind you own business people, and we will all get along great.

I really don't get the whole opposition to gay marriage thing. Marriage has always been about property. Its never been about love or procreation or any of that horseshiat. So why are religious people, who follow the Bible, that has the most cynical view on marriage ever written claim that marriage is about anything regarding heterosexual love?
