Tough old broad (in the best sense of the term) didn't give a fark what you thought about her and damn well wasn't about to pay taxes she didn't owe.

Tough old broads can change the world.

Thank you, American Hero.

Shame she passed so soon after her victory.

/Hats off to you, m'lady.

No law was passed in this case, subby. Quite the opposite.

There was a lesbian black woman who would have made the best Supreme Court justice money couldn't buy. Here's Barbara Jordan at the Bork hearings explaining how unjust laws can affect a single individual and how just laws can change things greatly for that same individual.

But she was black, gay, and a woman. Too bad.

I'm sure you can marry the French no problem.

Considering the fight was over her wife's estate taxes, her short time remaining isn't much of a surprise.

Well done either way.

Well, even if she was only able to be married for a year, at least she got to briefly enjoy the fruits of her labor.  I'm sure some pathetic dickheads are cheering her death somewhere.

The particular turtle I was forced to marry was of the snapping variety. So oral was definitely off the table.

Was the hero tag too distraught to be used?

Lovely sentiments from Obama and Bill Clinton on the twitter. Anything from Trump?

Her partner died before her I believe - I believe she was fighting for what she felt was her right to be recognized as married. From what I saw of her and her discussions after the decision, she was a tough and grateful lady, every bit the lover of life and the fighter we should all aspire to be. She didn't pass peacefully into that good night - she fought the law and she won. Goodnight.
