    Explaining Gay Rights To Idiots

    I find this infographic very helpful when trying to appeal to the good nature of certain folks who STILL refuse to acknowledge the validity of the rights of others. It is cutely sarcastic, yet straight to the point. We ought to have it placed in many public spaces. http://imgur...

    I think that the US Supreme Court's refusal

    yesterday to grant certiorari in any of the cases in which the Federal Courts of Appeals have concluded that there is a constitutional right for same sex partners to marry probably resolves the issue as a practical matter. Listening to comments this morning from opponents of...

    Same sex couples raising a child together,

    is no different than a single parent. I can't stand it when people say to me that children do better with both parents of the opposite sex. I know children with only one parent, turn out fine. And I know children with same sex parents turn out fine. In most cases, having both...

    As a lesbian of course I support gay marriage.

    Damn shame the state (Louisiana) I live in doesn't feel the same way I do. Unfortunately I don't see that changing anytime soon because the ban was just held up. Because of that ban my fiancรฉ are flying to DC so we get married.

    I don't really make a big deal out of it.

    I'm a girl but if I was lesbian. So what, I'm human too! You know what I'm saying? He/she makes you you happy, then go for it. Love is precious.

    Well we are one more step closer to the hole UAS

    where gay people can get marred. The six circuit passed and the Supreme Court denied any appeals so all that's left is the Ninth Circuit at the moment.

    Gay Marriage Is Good For The Cake Industry

    If gay marriage was legalized, there would be weddings, obviously. At most weddings, they have wedding cakes. (Shocking, I know). So, if there were more weddings, there would be more orders for cake, which is good for the cake industry. They could produce new and improved cakes...

    It's called 'marriage' you can't help

    who you fall in love with. It shouldn't bother people who they marry, it's their life....I'm quite proud that New Zealand is the first place that accepts gay marriage and is legal. My uncles came back from England to get married, and I love them so much...both amazing people.

    And I Did It Anyway

    Not only am I supportive of gay marriage, but I got married even though there is no law to approve it. I believe in marriage. I wish more LGBT people would just marry anyway, to show the world, we don't need a law to live out what we believe.

    that it's not a choice to be gay or not. And even if it was; so what? It's a choice to be an a$$hole too, and you can still get married. To me, saying that you can choose your sexual orientation is like saying you can choose the color of your skin. It just can't happen. Anyway...

    restrict who you can get married to, as long as the parties consent. Who you choose to love is your business only. Having said that, I don't agree with these lawsuits against bakers, florists, etc to force them to cater to a gay wedding ceremony. If they want to decline your...

    The government have no right tell someone they

    cannot marry in their own country. It's disgraceful, although I'm straight, I have a gay friend, and he had a lot of trouble coming out. His exact words were 'being gay is not a choice, it's who you are'. Of course they should be allowed to marry, we're all people.
