Hahahhhaa, great headline.
 
2014-02-13 11:43:28 PM  
I think some judges were once at a loss for how the would word the judgement overturning these laws. Now that they have legal precedent and verbiage, they're quicker to sign on.

Thank you! And yes it is pretty awesome how fast states are figuring it out now.

Huh. I thought it was supposed to be the stages of an erection.

Guess I got wang on the brain, what with all this talk of gay marriage.

See what you are doing to me, gays?! Geez!

I was thinking the same exact thing.

This whole gay marriage things means that my current marriage is completely null and void. I gots to go find me another man to gay marry.

When equal marriage is legal in Pensylvania it will be be available for 50% of the US' population. It's only a matter of time until it's legal in all 50 states.

Gig103: Thank you! And yes it is pretty awesome how fast states are figuring it out now.


Only a few states so far.  Several judges have found the bans unconstitutional, and the states continue to try to find ways around those decisions.  Same sex couples can no longer get married in Utah, for example, after a brief window of opportunity opened by a single judge's decision.

Latest Gallup poll has Wyoming as the most conservative state, so I guess I'll place my bet there.

I can remember when "gay" (in that sense) was used mostly as an adjective, and could be prefixed to the nouns "men" or "women" with equal ease.  In other words, "gay" was a synonym for "homosexual".  But nowadays, I am told, "gay women" is an oxymoron.  Who gets to decide this stuff, anyway?

Conservatives here in NC are already losing their shiat over the judge ruling VA's anti-same sex marriage amendment is unconstitutional. NC has both a law and a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriages, and they know it's only a matter of time before they're both overturned in court. Most of them are whining that NC voters should have the right to decide such things in their own state, not realizing that was the same argument used to keep blacks from voting, or desegregating the schools, or allowing women to vote, etc, etc.

/they're losing the war and they don't like it
//and they know they're losing it
 
2014-02-14 07:15:39 AM  
Good news.

But of course this means that the Republicans are well on their way to having another perpetual wedge issue like they do with abortion. It's not like the religious right is suddenly going to be okay with Adam and Steve being joined in the bonds of holy matrimony just because a few liberal activist judges say that equal protection before the law applies to godless sodomites too.

When the deep red states start flipping it's going to be bedlam.
 
2014-02-14 07:23:07 AM  
The GOP is eventually going to realize that tying their fortunes to the zealots isn't going to work for them in the long run. This might lead to a third (Tea) party, and will ensure that the Dems will win for a few cycles, at least.

They need to face the fact that "reality has a liberal bias" as Colbert put it.

I read that as "perpetual wedgie issue", and it still made perfect sense to me...

Some women don't like being "labeled" as "lesbian" because of all the assumptions that word carries, so prefer to be called "gay".

Yes, I know a few women like that. They're otherwise quite relaxed about things.

They're riding the tiger at this point and there's no getting off without losing a whole bunch of election cycles while they retool their party's stance into something a little wider.

Arizona reverse their ban? It'd have to be the courts. I don't see the party of old whitey siding with the times. They remember when you had to travel uphill both ways to see a straight marriage. In 3 feet of sand. In a full suit and tie. In July. When it was 175 out. And they liked it.

Dude, you've been here four months longer than I have. (Unless you, too, have an older login with a forgotten password floating around) How is it possible you haven't seen the repeat tag before?

Also, I didn't get the headline, either.
